Finley, Johnson & King.......buckle up RB
We are going to be comparing all three week by week here in the RB.

Already watching spring footage.

Week one, there will be:
“I told you so”s
and
“just wait till he hits his stride”

By week 10, all three will have had ups and downs as hush school qbs do.

It will be one of the best and most heated topics the rb has seen.

Frankly, everyone should just relish the fact that we haven’t had this kind of qb interaction in a long long time.

OR.....the RB could embrace the two commits they have and forget about King

I can Agree with that too.


Who knows what’s going to happen though.

There could be another name of some huge de-commit that likes Brady so much that we have four qbs in the sweepstakes.

Brennan will give us 1-2 years and we still haven’t seen Parrish. If Brady and Ensminger can coach up Parrish then we will have 3-4 years to polish up Finley or Johnson. As seen with Brennan, the key is to not throw them to the wolves early. Let’s let them develop and contribute as redshirt So or Jr’s, whole building a QB friendly offense. If we can do that, I like the 2 guys we have now. Even King would need 2-3 years in a weight room before he is SEC ready.

Imo the only comparison that needs to be made is at camp next month.

Not really.

None of the 3 are in (or will touch) Brennan's class. None of them are as good as Parrish. And I'm not even that high on Parrish.

Two of them lack arm talent and the other shows a serious lack of motivation. This is a weak QB class if we're just considering these 3.

I understand you have a thing for Johnson. But King isn’t a slouch. Texas puts out QB talent and it speaks for itself.

King is currently the highest rated uncommitted QB in the country, and sitting just outside the top 100 overall. Obviously there's a long ways to go in the recruiting cycle, but his stock has risen a lot.

re: Finley, Johnson & King.......buckle up RB
We definitely have some good qb talent stocked up for the future, that's for sure. I think I like max Johnsons highlights the best though. That guy can flat out spin it.

Not sure which one lacks motivation but I don't see any one of the three lacking arm talent. King doesn't have the arm of the other two but he'll be ok.

re: Finley, Johnson & King.......buckle up RB
I don’t know what y’all are worried about. If Joe Brady actually modernizes our offense so that Burrow and Brennan can ball out, we will be in it for most QB’s. At one time we had guys like Flynn, Russell and Perrilloux on campus. The only reason those days are gone is because Miles refused to keep up with the times. He had QB’s to build an offense around, he just refused to change so LSU got stuck with our current offensive reputation. Change that reputation and show out our elite skill position guys and we will once again have those highly touted QB’s. The same goes for OT recruiting. The NFL is a pass happy league. Build an offense that lets these kids prepare for an NFL future and the talent will follow. OT’s want/need to show off pass protection skills so give it to them. I think Brady is that key if O and E will listen.

This is just typical Rantard behavior. Back when everyone hated the HC there was a bitchfest on here because LSU had two QB commits and the HC offered the #1 QB in the nation causing the two to look around.

Now in all their brilliance people on here are wanting LSU, with two QB commits, to offer a guy who IS NOT the #1 QB in the nation.

Some genius is even saying one of the QB commits lacks motivation. Ha Ha Ha !!! Seriously says one of them lacks motivation and the other two have weak arms. fricking morons.

Derek STFU! There are some on here that know King is better, and are very worried Finley is raw and Max has terrible accuracy problems. Stay on the rant and get the hell off the recruiting board.

Yeah, I think I'll hold out until I see someone be correct about something on this board.

These are the same people who just KNEW LSU should get Matthew Baldwin out of the transfer portal. The same Matthew Baldwin that LSU didn't offer a year ago when he was in high school.

Who the frick cares what a bunch of morons KNOW or are crying about? Do Brady and Ensminger call you to see what the frick you think? I wouldn't. And I trust their judgment a lot more than I ever would anyone on this board.

Yeah, you may want to follow your own advice. The Rant is fantasyland. Recruiting is not an exact science but it isn't for stupid made up shite either. Like "us Rantards KNOW King is better".

I recap factual events that happened on this board in the past and as recent as last night.

Some dweeb calls me Derek, tells me to shut the frick up and stay off this board.

I respond in a very nice way and you THINK I AM UNBEARABLE on this board? I think you have a serious lack of judgment on this board and are criticizing the victim in this case.

You have been unbearable for a long time. So if I am becoming that way I have a long ways to go before getting close to catching up with you.

You mainly just talk shite to people on this board if they don’t agree with you. You act like you’ve been on the recruiting board forever
