|LSU Class of 2013 looking good|
I'm usually not one to put the cart before the horse. Heck, anybody who has ever seen me on a horse will tell you I have no business up there.
Anyway, it's hard not to be excited about what is shaping up as the Class of 2013 for LSU.
And, yes, I know the Landon Collins rule where just because someone commits, does not guarantee them signing with you on signing day.
But still, there seem to be some solid commitments for a very solid class. One that reminds me of Nick Saban's 2001 class or Les Miles' 2009 class.
While the Louisiana Class of 2012 appears to be an exceptional one, I am really excited about the commitment of John Diarse of Neville.
The 6-foot, 200-pound Diarse has played several positions at Neville, but was quarterback last year for the Class 4A state champions.
Diarse will likely be a defensive back or receiver in college and will make an immediate impact.
Loranger athlete Jeryl Brazil (6-1, 185) has already been invited to play in the U.S. Army All-Star Game and hopefully will don the LSU hat after committing to the Tigers.
Denham Springs defensive tackle Tevin Lawson (6-4, 285) is considered one of the top defensive tackles in the state and has already committed to the Tigers.
Green Oaks wide receiver Tre'Davious White has 4.5 speed and has played several positions and also is a standout basketball player. He is the godbrother of Morris Claiborne.
Westgate offensive lineman Josh Boutte (6-5, 300) will be a beast after a year under Tommy Mophett.
And, how can you not get excited about Karl Malone Jr. (6-4, 285)?
WInnfield defensive end Michael Patterson (6-5, 240) seems to have a pretty good motor. Although not a four-or-five star, Patterson is one of those players who will show he should have been.
Others still out there included Jordan Jefferson's brother, Rickey Jefferson, a 6-foot, 190-pound wide receiver with great speed and exception technique. So chill out on the negative Jordan Jefferson comments until next April after signing day.
Karr tight end Standish Dobard (6-5, 230) was really impressed with LSU's passing game during the spring contest. He was an early lean toward Alabama, but seems to like what Zach Mettenberger can do on the field.
Barbe tight end Desean Smith (6-5, 225) has great size and hands and has not expressed his top picks.
Tiger fans were disappointed with the Class of 2011. Which is going to make 2012 that much more special.
