Holding serve

LSU has picked up a commitment from Lavar Edwards of Desire Street Academy.

Most are pegging the 6-4, 300-pound Edwards for the defensive line. I know of at least one college coach who has seen Edwards play and says, yes, he could indeed be a tight end.

But let's figure on Edwards staying on defense.

This is a good get for LSU. For one thing, he was really considering Oklahoma hard. Rufus Alexander went from Baton Rouge to Oklahoma and had a good career with the Sooners. LSU didn't need to have any more players leaving Baton Rouge for OU.

So consider landing Edwards as holding serve since he's a hometown kid. But don't discount the importance of his commitment.
