Recruiting update

Remember when LSU fans were all worried about Nick Saban coming into Louisiana and raiding the state of its best players?

Well, Saban has picked off a player or two here and there -- Luther Davis and Robbie Green being among the most prominent.

But it appears another school in Alabama may be an even bigger threat to LSU recruiting.

No one much cared when DeAngelo Benton made his signing day switch to Auburn. After all, Rueben Randle signed with LSU.

Last year, more than a few fans were annoyned with Thibodaux wide receiver Trovon Reed when he signed with Auburn. Reed was the top player in the state and he was leaving the state.

Well, it's still early and lots could happen, but if Les Miles isn't careful Auburn could do a serious number on his recruiting class.

Here's what has happened and could happen.

Thibodaux offensive lineman Greg Robinson has committed to Auburn. Robinson is considered among the state's and nation's best prospects. He could play all five positions on the offensive line and could even see playing time as a freshman.

Now here's where it could really get bad for Miles and LSU. Running back Jeremy Hill of Redemptorist has decommitted and has made visits to Alabama and Auburn already. He has plans to visit Florida State and Tennessee and he is keeping LSU in the mix.

His teammate, offensive lineman La'el Collins, is also still taking visits. Although Collins hasn't decommitted.

If Hill and Collins join Robinson at Auburn, what once was going to be one of the great recruiting classes in LSU history takes a major hit.

Anyone still worried about Alabama?

No I am not worried about Alabama any longer.Something seem different,ether Saban is wearing thin and everyone see it, or Auburn has become a bigger threat then before.
Auburn is recruiting very well and looks to be buying there way into the front runner threat to LSU, Les Miles is a clean operator.
So I guess we well see soon enough.
Does only the strong(green) survive,or only does the honest (play by the rules) survive?

I think that Les Miles should do all that he can to of course recruit the top Louisiana football players.
Keeping Louisiana best (players) is the name of the game.
But what we want and what we can have is two different things.
We want to win each and every game,undefeated forever, that will not happen.
Wanting the sign each and every Louisiana great football player,will not happen ether.
Les Miles is still doing a dame good recruiting job,because LSU is still a power in the SEC.
Les Miles (six) year LSU coaching record looks very good.

We want big fast moving lineman that is where the plays begin and ends..So far I am not so high on Les Miles recruiting the lineman I want.
LSU lineman are a little bit below the NFL level we want...I will be looking to see if Les Miles does better.
We are kinder in-between the devil and the deep blue sea..Or we are still not able to go to football heaven.
That kind of feeling..Good but not good enough.

"Green money".."Cash"..Before I play.
Then we have a deal..LSU will stay back into the pack until they start spending the cold hard cash to buy the better college football players.Until then, forget about it.
