LSU vs Bama for DL
February is going to be all about getting Sopsher or Young away from Bama. If not, then McKinley Jackson for 2020.

Get Parker and Hampton to sign, yes, Devonta Lee is still out there too; but the obvious story will be the fight for Sopsher or Young.

Hence why when O was asked what they need for February, his response was "defensive line". Not so subtle call out to Sopsher there.

We need at least one more in this class. Preferably two.

And Lee.

The "two" would be Sopsher and his brother Sopsher.

Not getting both Sop and Young, and a guy like Pickering is just wasting everyone's time.

Why not? Many other schools of which we're in direct competition with seem to have little issue getting multiple blue chip DL in the same class every year.

Are we limited or something? Incapable? Not as good at footbaw and recruiting as those other schools?

No school besides Bama has a DL class close to as good as theirs, so not sure who you're talking about.

But a class of Evans, Ika, and either Sopsher or Young would be damn good in its own right considering Alexander is probably the only DL that we lose.

Sopsher would make this recruiting class so well-rounded. He's a good combination of size and speed that can help with our struggles we've had stopping the running game. I don't want to watch us play against a dominant Louisiana product for 3-4 years like we had to with freakin Landon Collins

Well, O pulled off the flip of the season already. So flipping Young may not be so unrealistic. And maybe signing Ish isn't either. But, numbers are tight and there's still several recruits out there. At this point would it really be a good idea to hand over 2 scholarships to Ish? Who gets turned away if you do? It's a no win for O on this one. If he signs Ish and Rodney, half the people will say, "great win over bama." The other half say, "why didn't he sign this guy or that guy?" If he doesn't sign him then people say losing to bama again, terrible class now. The rest will praise him for signing a great class, but, bama still signed a better class and took one of our best players. The only win here is signing Ish without his brother. The fact LSU was willing to do that to begin with says a lot about how bad they want him. Because ain't no way Saban does the same. And in my opinion, LSU should not either.

You're worrying too much what "people" say. They'll let people say whatever they want and be happy that they got Ish.

There is no mystery top 100 player out there that LSU is turning down to sign Rodney.

I agree that Bama appears to have the best DL class so far in 2019.

But look at the DL classes others in the top 10 have going currently, and then consider that you're saying that us getting 4 good-to-great DL commits this year is not doable.

It is doable. Every year, teams do that and more.

Does Rougarou leaving help with Ish?

Do you think they pull a Les and move Rod to fullback?

This. And the scholly wasted would probably be taken from a grad transfer or someone filling the class that we were not sure about anyway. It isn't like we have a group of 4 star guys waiting to find out if we have room. And O's last concern is what people will "Say" and is only caring about what gives him the best opportunity to win.

I honestly don't see us signing a full class anyway.

BINGO!!!

Land Rodney and Ish, with Emory being probably the biggest flip in all of college football this year and in recent memory at LSU, and Bama only gets Harris out of LA...I prefer Bama gets no 4 & 5 stars from LA. The fence is not up all the way around LA, but O, to his credit, is doing a better job than Miles' last few years.

And, I would have preferred if the staff had landed at least one of the U High 4 Stars, but land Ish and Rodney and this 2019 class overall will be top 5 and a huge success.

Yeah, I don't know...you might be right.

You think they'll use a spot for a juco or grad transfer, or you think they'll hold it open for 2020?

You don't think we'll take less than 24 in 2019, do you?

I don't know if they know how many they're going to take until they know the status of guys like Taylor and Ingram.

I think they're going to try to sign 25, but I don't see them getting everyone they want on NSD, so I think we'll just end up with an extra spot or two.
