Ali Gaye isn’t going anywhere...
I know some have speculated Gaye may not end up in this class due to others.

After watching a clip of him in action this year via S. Dixon Twitter you can forget that talk.

He’s raw, but his combo of speed, athleticism, and size are too good to pass on.

If they get Harris, Webb, guillroy, dummervill, Evans, and a potential other elite talent he’s gone.

Not saying Ali will be one, but people need to understand we are about to be turning down big time talent. It’s just where this program is right now.

We are not getting 2 of those you mentioned and have only a 50% chance on another.

re: Ali Gaye isn’t going anywhere...
Not saying you're wrong but that's a lot of absolutes for 5 guys we are squarely in the top 2-3 for.

Harris final 2 and even many tam people are beginning to concede.
Webb top 3 at worst and very much in it. I personally believe we land Harris and miss but it could be the opposite or we could realistically land both
Guillory Tiger
Dumervil top 2 but still a ways to go and I believe Bama will press at some point
Evans we are trending but who knows with that kid

So I ask which 2 are definitely not getting and which is 50/50?

As for Gaye, he gonna be in the class. Too many losses on the DL and we want someone who can generate a pass rush from the end spot that can play immediately. Only way I see different is if someone like Burch wants in.

I agree that Ali is not going anywhere due to need.

Also; I do not think that Cam Jackson gets pushed out unless it is grades or we get Dumerville and another OT.

I am very curious what kind of impact Mike Williams can have for our team next year.

I wouldn't pay much attention to someone who has been on here 8 years and has less than 200 post. That's a commitment I'd have to question. I'm just saying to have such few post in such a long period of time doesn't show a lot of interest.
As concerning recruits LSU will definitely not get, I just don't see any 2 of those LSU will absolutely not get. Actually I'm on the other end of the spectrum, I'd say there's definitely 2 or 3 that LSU will get. Guillory, Dumervil and Harris. I believe Evans is a very good possibility, maybe a 75 percent chance and Webb is a 50/50. But when LSU beats bama and ends the reg season undefeated and wins the SEC championship game there's going to be a whole slew of other top players that will have some serious interest in LSU. This class may look totally different come ESD than it does now, and I mean that in the most positive way possible. Just who does get 'processed' and who doesn't? Well, that's a job for the coaches, and one I'm so glad I don't have. Because turning some of these recruits away would be very hard!!! The fact O has recruited so well at this point and he really hasn't accomplished anything compared to the coaches he is recruiting against just tells you how good he will recruit once he does win something. Just imagine that for a second, it's kind of mind-boggling. Right now he is going toe-to-toe with 2 college coaching legends (well, one for sure and Dabo is on his way) and he is more than holding his own. O has a very likable and somewhat charismatic personality. There's a certain magnetism about him and kids want to be a part of whatever he has going on. Once he proves he can coach a NC team, man, there's no telling the kind of recruiting classes he will haul in. This season is a turning point for him, LSU and college football. Can you feel it in the air? I can. And the next 10 to 15 years will be the greatest era for LSU football in the history of LSU!!!

I disagree completely. They’re recruiting Cam at OT and Gaye is a juco guy. Plus we have Roy, Taylor, Lee and potentially Guillory on the Dline.

If LSU is doing what I’ve heard they might be through, neither one may end up in the class tbh.

LSU is the hottest team in the country right now and O is taking advantage.

Only of we land a Great LT. I know he is listed as a DT, but I believe he is in the mode of D. Rosenthall. Great build for an athletic LT.

I remember the same things being said about Traore and Travez Moore but neither of them panned out.

But Maybe Gaye can be like Lewis and contribute immediately. Jucos are literally a light switch they either have it for this level or they don’t.

re: Ali Gaye isn’t going anywhere...
Only way I see Jackson staying is if LSU whiffs on other tackles like Dumervil. Grades have also been a question on Jackson. At least that’s been the talk on here anyway.

I agree LSU has a lot of interest from highly rated HS kids. Even at 21 commits now, I could see 1-2 more getting asked to look elsewhere if LSU gets who they’d like. So who is that going to be? Jackson and Martinez are both at positions of need but also lowest rated.

I’m not a big fan of taking 2 QB’s in this class but they are taking 2 for depth if nothing else.

Gaye offers things that nobody else in this class can offer. He’s more mature (albeit raw) and his athleticism for his size just pops on film. He’s an athletic freak for his size.

I had him on the purge list until I saw those clips. Kid looks like a leaner, more athletic Marquise Hill type. I can’t say he’s a can’t miss guy though.

He has 2 years of eligibility correct?

re: Ali Gaye isn’t going anywhere...
I agree with you in some points like some more current commitments will not be in this class.

Cam Jackson may be one. Idk.

My main point was that it might bite us in the arse like cb did last year and might this year if we "process" Jackson and Martinez and only get Dumerville.

Jmo.

If Jackson is not in this class for whatever reason it may be but we sign Dumerville plus another OT and keep Martinez then I am ok with that.

I just think if we process like you are hinting at and only have 1 ol in this class it can hurt us in the future.

OL almost always need to redshirt.

re: Ali Gaye isn’t going anywhere...
I really like Gaye from his raw talent standpoint on his highlights.

I just think times are even more interesting in recruiting because of winning and the forward momentum.

My hope is that at some point we can get to having more balanced classes even though it is impossible to have a quote perfect balance because the talent at each position varies from year to year.

re: Ali Gaye isn’t going anywhere...
Don’t get me wrong...I want OLmen. Specifically tackles.

If it was me I’d try to meet need first and then upgrade at each position if possible.

I think the needs are at OT, Safety, NG, Pass Rusher, and RB. Some may disagree on RB.

22. OT (Dumervil or Crawford). I’d take both if both want in and are eligible:
23. Safety (Greene or Reed)
24. NG Guillory
25. Pass Rusher (Harris or Webb etc)
26. RB (Evans, etc)

Would be a great finish and would need 1 more to drop out. 2 if you sign both tackles or if both Webb and Harris want in.

Every year we can’t figure out how it will play out, but this year LSU will not be scrambling to fill with backburner kids for sure.

All recruits come with a risk and JUCO recruits have a slightly bigger risk and offer fewer years to contribute.

DL is a huge need, as is we are heavily weighted this year on DL with 1 or 2 more out there to get.
