I think Curry will be the new Darrell Williams.

Tough, big back that can handle a large carry load.

CEH is going to be a stud I think. I don't know why I'm so confident in that, but I am.

Where are you getting this information from? He said he hasn't made a decision but he is going to be graded well. Why would he stay and risk getting hurt again?

Because what we’ve already seen from him has been impressive. Because you gotta imagine a 5’8” guy at 207 packs a pretty hard punch, his speed is elite, as are his cuts. Put him in Briles, or really any spread offense where running lanes are 5 feet wide and just allow him to impress in open space! Let me know if you need more reasons...

Yeah, Derrius Guice decided, "Why be selfish and make millions? People like 4EvEr Bo REIN would be highly entertained if I stayed in college, so that's what I'll do."

re: Ok if Joiner is out are we going after any other running backs?
Joiner was probably never going to be a RB at LSU anyway. I'm willing to bet they graded him as a jumbo athlete and only tried to sell him playing RB with intentions of moving him elsewhere. That's why they cut the pursuit off. Other guys are higher on the board and have true positions.

No. We have our RBs. Curry is better than Joiner anyway and is a true RB. I doubt what the above poster said is true about Guice. It's probably more above what I said. He simply was never expected to be a RB here. It probably came down to them rather not risking limited space on an athlete they have no definite position to put in hence rating the other guys higher.

Joiner was going to commit in February. 100% lock.

He was enjoying the recruiting process.

Joiner would have been the best RB currently on the roster and isn't close.

Joined would be good LB. With the numbers he is out the picture even IF he wanted in this class.

He rolled the dice and shot snake eyes.

How he was enjoying the recruiting process?

Several players LSU have been recruiting forever have not committed yet. Are they rolling the dice too?


He was #1 player in Alabama and #6 overall RB in country but we chose to quit talking to him.


Like Surtain, or Joseph ,or Marshall.


LSU has recruited those guys for awhile but they haven't committed. Why is that?

Does that mean they don't want to come to LSU or are they just enjoying the process.

The best on the roster and not even close? Wtf are you smoking? CEH is much thicker, much lower center of gravity, way faster, and way shiftier! He can make 3 cuts in the time it takes Joiner to male one and he hits harder! Curry, who imo is also a one cut back is still more impressive than Joiner at that position. Brosette, whose seen limited action over the years is still more impressive than Joiner to me.
Are you related to this guy or are you just obsessed with his 247 rating and the fact that he’s big guy?

re: Ok if Joiner is out are we going after any other running backs?
I think it’s safe to say the coaching staff knows things this board doesn’t. Sometimes players are committed to a school but don’t go public for a variety of reasons. Sometimes a player isn’t recruited for reasons other than his ability (see: Pooka Williams). Sometimes because of scholarship limitations the coaches believe a player at another position is more important to the program.

We can’t make a judgment without knowing all the facts.

About Curry, I guess you know more than everyone else in the country about recruits.

#6 player overall and #1 in state of Alabama and we sign Provens.

Someone who is nowhere near as good as Joiner.


CEH is a nice player but a one two punch of CEH Joiner would have been sweet.

Are you friends with Joiner or his family?

Because you're really giving this kid a lot more credit than anyone else. His film isn't very good and he definitely doesn't look like a natural running back.

Would probably be a solid LB though.

No one knows but the Shadow and he ain't talking!

They could be committed.

Yet Bama and Auburn didn't want him as a RB?

(and he's #3 overall player in Alabama in composite, not #1)

He might not, but college coaches do.
