    nice

    6' 3" 352 lb DT who runs a 4.8

    How in the hell do you run a 4.8 being that big?

    He is a monster!

    #1 Ranked DT on Rivals.com

    He is also ranked the #2 player in the entire nation on rivals.com!!!

    This has made my day.....I was becoming a little depressed watching all these players go elsewhere with LSU not even on most of these player's lists.

    Great going Les Miles. This is coup #1.

    This kid is something else - I honestly thought he was AU bound.

    Check him out: Jerrell Powe

    Yeah, I just mentioned it on the Perrilloux thread. He's drawing comparisons to Warren Sapp. They said he is the real deal with his speed. Nice! :geauxtigs

    LSU wasn't even in his choice of colleges on rivals. Man we came out of nowhere.


    Auburn
    Ole Miss
    Nebraska
    Tennessee
    Texas A&M
    West Virginia

    The recruiting sites continue to show themselves worthless...

    This guy was shown on the premium sites as not even having LSU as one of his top 5 favorites. The only reason I suscribe is for recruiting info -- will probably cancel my subscription...I get as much info from this site as I do from them. And by the way...yes...I am a contributor to TF.

    I don't think the recruiting services are that unreliable.

    There are times when players just do a great job at keeping it close to the vest, and sometimes things just change at the last moment.

    I just read that he may be a grade liability - anyone know if he's qualified?

    Either way, from what we've been told, Les Miles would not likely bring in a kid who would be a major grade risk. Wow, what a coup - I'm glad he decided not to waste all that talent at Auburn!

    Side Note: Are they paying kids to go to Tennessee or what? They have received like 6 big declarations this afternoon and will likely have the top class by the end of the day.

    Aside from one guy who's a relative newbie to the site (I don't even recognize him and I'm an admin), I'm not sure where the sour grapes comment is coming from. He did tell AuburnSports.com last night that he would announce that he was going to AU today. I guess he either lied or shouldn't have made such a declaration if his mind wasn't made up.

    And it will be two years before he gets to BR unless a minor miracle occurs with his grades. He's headed to JUCO first.
