On Marquise Hill

Coast Guard officials today say they have identified the body of Marquise Hill following a jetski accident in Lake Pontchartrain.

This is a sad day for LSU football fans.

Not only was Hill a former LSU football player, but he was one of the first New Orleans-area players to sign on with Nick Saban. He signed with LSU's 2001 class - that was the one following a Peach Bowl win over Georgia Tech.

I remember talking to Hill during the summer before his senior year in high school. At the time, Michigan was very much a factor in his recruitment. But Hill signed on with LSU and won a national championship with the Tigers.

The news of Hill's death is indeed tragic. His family should be in all of our thoughts and prayers.
