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?
