    Could be a 5* prospect out of GA that is originally from New Orleans. He moved to GA when he was 3 and still has a bunch of family in LA. He is not new to LSU fans based on his visit during a game last year where he and his family had a great visit. He came down again this weekend and we topped the 1st one.

    Likely the top prospect on our board for 2012 and we could be the leader throughout his process. Doesn't seem to mind leaving home given his top teams are LSU, Bama, Auburn, and South Carolina at this time.

    I like him. He moves pretty good for a guy that big. He isn't afraid to get on the ground or block a guy low. He fires right off the ball and gets up the field looking for linebackers, etc., to hit. I hope we get him.

    Does having La'el affect his recruitment?

    He's a sophomore in that video. Not too bad.

    Do all defensive linemen in Georgia wear roller skates, or just the ones who play Vadal Alexander?:hihi:

    Wow! It's impressive that he has come back from Guillain-Barre' and is back on the field. I'll never forget a patient I followed in medical school at Charity Hospital with GBS. He was a 43 y/o telephone repairman who had no insurance and came down with GBS. He was struggling to get off of a ventilator and survive. He had no movements of his lower body for weeks. He was so thankful just to get back to his family. GBS can range from mild to severe, so VA is lucky to survive, much less get back to football.

    Watched Vadal last night he looks really good and would be a great addition to this class. He scored a TD on aPASS :shock: play. By the way ol Chizic's ugly mug was there watching and ESPN showed him several times. :tigereye:
