    Thats what I guessin but I've been told that he has a good chance also he would've been eligible to play if he went to S.Miss and actually had a visit scheduled before signing day but canceled at the last min. b/c he wants to play in the SEC.

    Now everyone should understand why he wasn't offered. If he can work on his grades for the next 2 years, he might get his chance again.

    Heard about him signing with Juco when RR went up to Ole Miss. Him and other former Bastrop players are recruiting RR hard for Coach Nutt. I know never say never but even if he became a 5* and LSU offered after he left Juco he wouldn't come. He wanted to be a sign & place with LSU but said he never heard anything from LSU.

    I do not think he will ever come to LSU for a few reasons. He 1st has to work on his grades and then after 2 years LSU will have:

    Lee, Jefferson, Shepard, Garrett, and 2-4 other recruits yet to be determined.

    With this kind of depth as it look now, he will have to go somewhere where he can start asap in order to have a shot at the NFL which I am sure he has aspirations for. With his size he should probably switch positions to have a better shot at it.

    well he knew he was most likely going to take the Juco or prep school route but he wasnt receiving nothing from LSU not even the motivional or famous quotes letters they send out to everybody even after he made the statement that he would change positions to come play for his "dream" school.

    The only schools right now that I could see him go to other than Ole Miss would be Miss State b/c of his relationship with Croom and Oklahoma because they continued to show interest throughout his whole process. Auburn would be the sleeper.
