Down year in Louisiana?

After looking at Scout.com and its top 100 football recruits for the Class of 2008, it doesn't look to be a big year in recruiting here in Louisiana.

Unless I missed someone, only Rayville wide receiver Chris Tolliver is ranked among the nation's top 100 prospects by Scout.

If that is indeed the case, then there will be more pressure than ever on LSU coach Les Miles and his staff to be able to pluck players out of Texas, Mississippi, Alabama and Florida. That is never easy.

A realistic view of the upcoming recruiting season would lead you to believe that a top-10 class is unlikely this year if only because there is not the base of players in Louisiana from which to build a class.
