Recruiting update

While the number isn't great, this could be a big - emphasis on big - recruiting weekend for LSU football in Baton Rouge.

Three top defensive line prospects are among those scheduled to visit campus this week.

Joseph Barksdale, considered by some to be the top prospect in Michigan, is set to visit LSU. Barksdale, a 6-foot-5, 315 pound defensive tackle has already visited Notre Dame and Ohio State. He is set to visit Florida State next week. He has cancelled a visit to USC. Barksdale is something of a long shot with Ohio State expected to get his signature.

Cameron Heyward, son of the late Ironhead Heyward, is also visiting LSU this weekend. He is a 6-foot-6, 280-pound defensive tackle from Peachtree Ridge High School in Suwanee, Ga. Heyward is also considering trips to Georgia, Florida and Ohio State.

Both Heyward and Barksdale are considered four-star recruits by Scout.com.

The final defensive line prospect set to visit this weekend is West Monroe's Luther Davis. The 6-4, 255-pound defensive end has taken one visit thus far to Louisville.
