Academics matter

Memo to high school recruits: If you want to play early, then you better take care of your work in the classroom.

LSU has brought in three high-profile running back recruits - Richard Murphy, Charles Scott and Keiland Williams. Of those three, only one of the running backs didn't have NCAA Clearinghouse problems - Charles Scott.

So it's little wonder that of the three prospects, only Scott looks like a sure thing to see playing time this year.

"Charles Scott has put himself in position to play,'' LSU coach Les Miles said at his weekly news conference today.

Miles all but said Scott will play. Of Murphy and Williams, it appears only one of the two will play with the other one expected to be redshirted.

The early leader for playing time is Williams.

"Keiland has been a fast learner,'' Miles said.

So count on seeing Scott and Williams this season and expect to see Murphy wearing a redshirt.

And the moral of the story: Get your grades - on time.
