Finishing time

College football recruiting hits its final stretch this weekend.

For LSU fans, the end has not always been kind to the Tigers. Most LSU fans won't forget that feeling they had when Joe McKnight slipped on that USC hat.

The end didn't get off to the greatest start this morning when defensive end Ed Stinson committed to Alabama. Stinson, a Homestead, Fla., product had visited LSU last weekend. Now, admittedly, Alabama had been in the lead for Stinson but there were some who were getting good vibes from his trip to Baton Rouge.

Apparently, not so much.

While most observers expect West Monroe linebacker Barkevious Mingo to eventually end up at LSU, there is probably more uncertainty than LSU fan can handle when it comes to Bastrop's Rueben Randle. But just as Stinson was thought to be headed to Alabama, so many think Randle is headed to LSU.

Anyway, the last week will be about holding on to what LSU has and getting these top remaining in-state targets.

LSU may not sign everyone we want, but at least there are much better defensive coaches for next season. Pick sixes were only 1/2 the problem last season. A poor pass defense was the other 1/2, and it was very evident very early in the season.
