    Re: 2014 S Laurence 'Hootie' Jones

    Big commitment here and a much-needed boost after an otherwise awful weekend on the Plains.

    Rangy kid here, but also pretty bulky and a physical prospect, which is something I'd argue we certainly need in run support.

    Still don't believe we'll get Fournette -- and our Yeldon come hell, higher water, ineffectiveness or TFL approach to tailback rotation on Saturday night certainly won't do us any favors in his recruitment -- but the staff has just done an absolutely marvelous job recruiting Louisiana the past few years, and that continues here. Cam Robinson and Hootie were at the absolute top of the LSU board from day one, and we still managed to poach them away. Incredibly impressive stuff.

    The play of the secondary as of late could have helped with this decision...Could come in and play right away.

    That's not it, and early playing time is by no means assured for Hootie, not with Collins, Sunseri, Jarrick Williams, and Nick Perry all returning for 2014. Barring some injuries, he's probably going to have to cut his teeth on special teams like a lot of incoming freshmen these days.

    The thing on recruiting in Louisiana is that, as much as the LSU homers hate it, we've just convinced a lot of Louisiana recruits that we are simply a better program and that not only do we win more, we also do a better job of developing players. They hate to hear that, and many would vehemently dispute it, but that's the conclusion a lot of their in-state products have reached.

    I love how we are eating Les Miles lunch in recruiting Louisiana. Our secondary is going to be very formidable in the future, especially with Hootie and Landon Collins playing together.
