Recruiting work ahead

There is good news and bad news on the recruiting front in regards to wide receiver Terrance Toliver of Hempstead, Texas.

Scout.com is reporting Tolliver has narrowed his list of schools to five and LSU is among the five schools. That is the good news for LSU and Tiger fans.

The bad news - it appears Florida and USC are the leaders for the signature of Toliver, ranked as the No. 3 receiver in the country by Scout.com.

Toliver says Florida is recruiting him the hardest. He also likes USC because the Trojans are in the national championship hunt seemingly every year. Oklahoma, LSU and Miami round out his top five.

If LSU could somehow land Toliver, then it would soften the loss of Sterlington wide receiver Ahmad Paige who committed to Florida State last week.

The significance of Paige's commitment could be in the return of FSU as a player in the Louisiana recruiting scene.

Whether you like Nick Saban or not, the former LSU coach all but kept the Seminoles out of the state during his tenure. And it's no coincidence the Tigers began winning big when the border was sealed.
