Leigh Update
247 moderator from his region saying he is trending towards Oklahoma. Luckily for us, we still have plenty of time to swing things back in our favor.

I still think we land him eventually, but it's going to be fight

Edit: It's not an insider, it's a moderator - Brian Dohn - who covers the East coast for 247, not for OU. He is one of their regional guys.

OU fans are a lot like Bama fans. They think whoever they are recruiting is a shoe in for their class. Doesn’t always work out that way lol

re: Leigh Update
Not sure exactly which “insider” you are referring to, lovethetigers7, but most of the OU mods on 247 I’ve seen are clowns.

Many throw their CBs in for OU simply because that’s where they hope the kid lands.

Not trying to call you out for posting this, just want to give you my two cents on these tool bags.

Either way, thanks for sharing.

P.S., I still love where LSU stands, and I believe we still lead for him (just my opinion)!

I disagree.

This board has proved time and time again that any slight negative news will cause people to lose their shite and panic.

There wasn’t a whole lot of “why” behind his pick to OU other than him talking about sooner summit.

Wasn’t much there other than to say it could go either way.

You forget the Sage Ryan recruitment already? We are realists with recruit expectations.

re: Leigh Update
Gotcha, thanks for letting me know.

B. Dohn is much more reliable than the OU insiders.

That said, I still like LSU chances for Leigh and don’t understand what Dohn and Wiltfong are basing their decision on but oh well!! Thanks again!

Wat? LSU fans are the most sky-is-falling fans in college football.

re: Leigh Update
It’s not an option to miss on Leigh for LSU. He’s as close to a must get that I can remember. I know Caleb Williams is working him hard, but some of the posters on this site who have inside info still seem to think he comes here.

re: Leigh Update
The C. Williams angle is pretty much all the Dohns, Wiltfongs, and Farrells of the world are going off of.

Other than that bit, The only other tidbit for them changing their prediction to Oklahoma is because Tristan didn’t commit to LSU after his visit with girlfriend. From that, they must have inferred the reasoning behind it is because he is more interested in Oklahoma.

I don’t buy it. And I don’t believe his friendship with another recruit will outweigh the benefits that LSU can offer over OU (like early playing time)

Apparently his brother posts on here and is a Tiger fan. The brother said Dohn was close to changing his CB for Leigh about a month ago (from LSU to OU).

re: Leigh Update
I'm going to say we have a "solid lead" for Leigh.

The kicker is what LSU fans did for his Mom at a game. It's out there look it up. LSU fans won her heart that day. That counts for alot.

Still gotta be brought home, and it IS STILL AN OPEN RECRUITMENT. But we have the biggest ally in our corner.

As GetmorewithLes said the mods are trying to get clicks on a normal year they would be flooded this close to early signing day but with no official visits/unofficial visits there is not much for them to talk about

I still think LSU leads for Leigh and that we will pull him in the end
