as Freshmen? LSU currently has 17 commits (counting D. Benton), plus several other guys that are "probables", and we can even through a few possibles in there as well. Things to keep in mind - LSU loses it's top 2 CB's, 2 outside LB's, a safety, a DT & DE, a FB/RB, 1 WR, and one OLine. My guess is the following players do not redshirt: Ryan Baker, Ryan St. Julien, and Deangelo Peterson, DeAngelo Benton, Thomas Parsons, Kellen Theriot, and Brandon Taylor. DeAngelo Benton is our only current commit I see making an immediate impact in his freshman year. Other recruits that could make immediate impact include Agheyere - DE (I think he's more polished than Clement), Brandon Thompson - DT (get into the rotation with Nevis), and Julio Jones at WR. Unfortunately, we're probably long shots for these guys. Overall, I don't see this class making a big impact as freshmen, but that is more because of the depth that we've built up than anything.
