DeAngelo Benton update

LSU fans ... I think the jury is still out on DeAngelo Benton, Bastrop's star wide receiver who has verbally committed to the Tigers. Benton didn't show me much Friday night against Ruston. Three catches for 40 yards aren't going to get it done -- not a 6-foot-3. He dropped a sure touchdown when he got a case of alligator arms. His most pressing problem seems to be going for passes aggressively. Several times Friday he had a defender beat, but didn't go after the ball, giving the defender that extra second to either make the play or tackle Benton for a short gain. I'm sure Les Miles and the gang will work on Benton's aggressiveness.
