He'll be a redshirt freshman. Matt Mauck just had one of the best season's ever as a LSU QB. I will say that Mauck had 3 games out of 14 this year that were not good. Florida, Ole Miss and Oklahoma. Bottomline is we won 2 of those 3 and picked up our QB who was off. That's the sign of a good team. All the press says Russell maybe the most talented QB to ever attend LSU. The key is turning that potential into reality. Something that Chris Leak did this year.
