Revenge of Jimbo?

Blue-chip quarterback prospect E.J. Manuel of Virginia Beach, Va., is expected to announce his college decision on Wednesday.

Among the 10 finalists for Manuel are LSU and Florida State.

The Florida State assistant coach recruiting Manuel is none other than former LSU offensive coordinator Jimbo Fisher who has the same job at FSU now. One of the LSU coaches recruiting Manuel is Gary Crowton, the man who replaced Fisher on Les Miles' staff.

LSU isn't in desperate shape for a quarterback after signing Jarrett Lee last year. But the Tigers certainly want to sign Manuel.

Of course, if Fisher can get a commitment from Manuel it would be a great recruiting coup for him at FSU. And a bittersweet defeat for LSU.
