    Has been offered by LSU. From Frank Wilson's stomping grounds and teammates with Trai Turner at St. Aug.

    Currently committed to Houston and is getting more and more interest from across the country.

    Must of hit a growth spurt this year because he says he is currently 6'7 355lbs.

    Nickname = The Big Tuna

    You can't teach 6'7 tree fiddy! I think he's already on board. How do you feel about him vs Region?

    He certainly looks tall. He plays very high. The players going against him are so small comparatively that they go flying when he pushes them. He doesn't look overly athletic, but he definitely has the size. Another positive is that he played all out until the whistle.

    Wow.... you don't see recruits put their phone number at the end of the video too often.

    As opposed to the guys bigger than him he'll face at the next level? :hihi:

    Seriously, I don't really disagree with you. I think, even with that size, he's a RS candidate. I like his motor, and I LOVE his size, but he has some learning to do.

    I don't know about you, Fishhead, but I like Shakira's motor a heck of a lot better than Austin's !! :grin:.

    She's half Volkswagen. Motor is in the back. The other half is Ferrari, though. :hihi:

    Ever since I was a little kid,(going back to the days of Paul Dietzel) LSU had trouble recruiting the New Orleans area. But when Coach Saban got to LSU he started to get a few recruits a round here. Coach Miles seems like he has picked up a few more Greater New Orleans recruits. I think when it is all over Jonah Austin will be at LSU.
