USC 5*DE Oluwole Betiku transferring
His twitter announcement

247 page

Any interest in LSU getting him or even know if we tried recruiting him much?

Underperformed at USC and had some injuries but that may be due to lack of S&C ability and coaching what do y’all think?

It won’t hurt to go after him

I agree my only concern is he wasn’t able to crack into the 2nd string

But that may have more to do with coaching and unfortunate injuries than anything

Will we have room in the 25?

If we have only 1 spot I have doubts they would use it here. I suspect it would be saved for an OT or possibly S.

He has to sit a year I think I’m not entirely sure if he redshirted so maybe a juco year and we recruit him.

I’m not really sure just a 5star DE and always love to see us get them

I trust O to evaluate talent on the Dline. With that said- he was extremely underwhelming at SC. To me you wait out NSD. Who knows what happens with the MS Dlineman and the Sosphers.

Looks like he’ll be a grad transfer with 2 years left after redshirting 2018 due to injury, and immediately able to play.

But he had 2 tackles total in the few games he played in his first couple years. And the injury issues. Be interesting to see what the staff thinks.

He took official visits to SC, FSU, TAMU and Notre Dame. He had an offer from LSU and Orgeron was his recruiter. Tee martin recruited him to SC. LSU signed Andre Anthony, Ray Thorton, Caleb Roddy, Sci Martin at DE that year.

I know there's still time for Anthony and Thorton, but it does seem, as of right now, that we may have missed on all of them...3 were taken as edge rushers, too.

I did think Thorton would be a force...still time, I suppose.

Well, you should...he's in line to be one of the best pass rushers in the country next season.

But, yeah, we always need more pass rushers, especially elite ones like Chaisson.

Sure. Offer him Rodney Sophsers scholarship and get a booster to pay for Rodney's tuition and room and board.

Let me get this straight. You want to recruit a proven loser because he was rated highly by a Rivals and 247? Why not just give the scholarship to a walk on if you’re going to piss it away?
