    Going to be one of the top prospects in the country overall and likely the #1 prospect in LA. Wants to play Safety in college but I hope he ends up at LB for LSU one day. He is out of Dutchtown and the Eric Reid connection will pay dividends and after the junior day LSU is sitting in a great spot. But I predict we will have a lot of competition and will not feel settled on landing him until very late in the process.

    Already attended some camps at LSU last summer.

    Why wouldn't a kid want to play for the coach that has had the last two Jim Thorpe award winners.
    The 2008 and 2009 Jack Tatum award winner.
    The 2010 Consensus All-American.
    The 2010 Bednarik Award Winner.

    The last two years first round DB's picks.

    Chief gets the job done. TM7 is on pace to do well. We like to play True Freshmen in the D backfield. Too many pluses.



    Too many good reasons.

    I hope he plays safety at LSU.

    I don't want to see him bulk up 20-30 lbs playing OLB.

    It will be safety and as for our chances, it is looking real good for LSU at this point.

    I'd love to see this guy in the mix with Reid, Loston, T-Rex, Simon, and (hopefully) Mo Claiborne as our future secondary.

    From what I am hearing the only way he doesn't come here is if he feels like our depth at safety is too much to overcome. Remember he has already played behind Reid in HS. Bama is pushing that angle.

    Maybe we need to push the angle that our safeties are gonna leave early for the NFL.
