Good get for LSU

LSU's commitment from Morris Claiborne may not impress the recruiting gurus -- he's only a tw0-star player according to Rivals.com -- but this is still a good get for the Tigers.

And here's why:

1) He is an outstanding athlete who can contribute in different ways. He is played wide receiver and quarterback in high school. He's an elusive runner with big-play ability. He could also move to the secondary.

How good of an athlete is Claiborne? As a sophomore he was all-state in basketball and the Shreveport Times boys athlete of the year.

2) He's a good student. Claiborne has a 20 on his ACT. He's not going to struggle to qualify.

3) He wants to go to LSU. He could have accepted the first offer he received. Instead, he waited for the one he wanted -- from LSU.

And oh yeah, the last two-star recruit from Shreveport worked out rather well. You may remember him, Jacob Hester.
