    1. Saban is already locking down the La borders again! 5 commits including the top RB! Let's hope Mr. Perriloux jumps on board soon.

    2. I hope Dajileon Farr (top Texas recruit) and Tremaine Johnson (2004 recruit) are great friends. They are both from the same HS in TX (Galena Park).

    3. That guy from Maryland (Derrick Williams) sounds like a stud. Let's hope our MD link is still wide open! (David Jones, Barrington Edwards, Patrick Fisher...)

    Unfortunately, I think Stan Hixon was our Maryland connection, and he is now with the Redskins. The tradeoff, though, is that we now have three assistants with serious connections to talent-rich Florida. While we have done a great job getting serious talent out of Florida since Nick arrived (Travis Daniels, Amp Hill, Xavier Carter, to name a few), we will probably have a legitimate shot at many more prospects from Florida going forward.

    On the other hand, I think I saw where LSU was presently on the top of the heap in Farr's estimation. Galena Park has had several quality recruits over the last few years, so it is a good school for LSU to develop from a recruiting perspective.

    good point about Hixon... darn. but you're right about the good news in Florida. I remember reading about the Florida connection for the new assistants also.

    Insiders already has an early Top Texas 100. #1, #2, & #3 look to be very interested in LSU and have offers.

    Farr and Johnson are close friends. LSU is also recruiting a lineman on same team and in good shape with him too.

    It's the 4 button from the right underneath the 'color" box I think.

    Farr lists LSU as "high" and the rest are all medium, per rivals.
