    Kory Foreman chooses USC. At least he stayed home.

    And Leigh announced he signed with Clemson in December. Total dick move to both us and OU.

    Point of emphasis on Louisiana's search for OL talent. Maxie Baudoin is 6'6 290 playing DT. I have no doubt he's probably legit at DT but a kid that size belongs at an offensive tackle spot and nowhere else. Wouldn't be surprised if that's where he ends up, but he's an example that Louisiana has em. Just need someone to push O-line to these big boys. Once you exceed 6'4 IMO you're too tall for DT and he's too big for a 4-3 DE.

    Height is not a hindrance to playing DL. Ed Too Tall Jones was 6'9"

    I specifically stated DT. Ed was a DE and very much an outlier. Tackles are bigger and usually less athletic than ends. Interior O-linemen also tend to be shorter than OTs. Point is, a DT that tall could have problems with shorter stronger interior linemen getting under their pads and driving them around. I’d rather a guy that size at OT.

    Here's how you can tell where he belongs: check out his locker. Forget where I read this, but someone put out the theory that offensive linemen are all about maintaining order and structure for their team, and this mindset can usually be seen in that their lockers are very neat. Defensive linemen, on the other hand, are all about disrupting the other team (making a mess of the offensive game plan) and this mindset carries over to their lockers, which are generally a mess.
