Recruiting update

Les Miles needs to have a strong recruiting class. To that regard, LSU may have some encouraging news on the recruiting front with defensive tackle Jospeh Barksdale of Detroit scheduling a visit to LSU for Nov. 10.

Barksdale is 6-foot-5 and weighs 315 pounds. He visited Notre Dame on Sept. 16. He has the LSU visit on Nov. 10 and is going out to USC on Nov. 24.

This isn't going to be easy for Miles and his staff. Besides those three visits, Barksdale, a four-star recruit according to Scout.com, also plans to visit Ohio State. His fifth visit will come from Tennessee, Florida State or Miami.

Barksdale told Scout.com he has some specific things he is looking for in a school. "I check out their records and rankings. Those things matter. I want to win.''

Barksdale did have some kind words for the Tigers when talking to Scout.com.

"I love their D-line tradition,'' Barksdale said. "I think I would really learn a lot from them. They are one of the best D-line schools in the nation.''
