After seeing what Coach Jones accomplished with the 2013 class I’m really excited to see what he and staff can do for 2014. If you’ve been a Tiger fan for a while you know the one thing that plagues our basketball team is consistency. We have one great year followed by 5 years of bad luck. Many things factor into becoming more consistent but I think the base is recruiting, having the right players. Coach Jones seems to be a hard worker on the recruiting trail and I think he will do a good job of not only getting a good class but the right players that will work together in his system. Looking at the roster now, we will have 3 open spots (Stringer, Courtney and Coleman). I’ve heard rumors that JOB may look to the NBA this year, I think he comes back has full healthy season and leaves after next year (my theory). Point is we will have 3 maybe 4 open roster spots. A few prospects: Craig Victor 6’8 PF…5 star on scout, high 4 star on rivals. He’s a New Orleans guy who played AAU with Jerrall Martin and in a recent scout article he said he mention he and Martin still keep in tuch. Dante Exum 6’4 PG…Listed as a 4 star but he is one that recruiting guys think will be a 5 star before it’s all said and done. From Australia, has an offer but his dad played at North Carolina. James Thompson 6’8 PF …Listed as a 3 star from Baton Rouge has an offer. LaDamion Keys 6’9 PF …Listed as a 3 star from Bogalusa, La…has an offer. Anton Beard 5’9 PG… Listed as a 4 star from Little Rock, Ar Davell Roby 6’4 PG…Listed as a 3 star from Memphis. TN Miles Reynolds 6’2 SG…Listed as a 3 star from Chicago, IL Jordan Cornish 6’4 SG…Listed as a 3 star from New Orleans Kelly Oubre 6’6 SF…Listed as a 4 star from Fort Bend, Tx The guys I have listed are in no order, I only listed guys who have offers or who have interest along with Louisiana ties. And this is according to scout, rivals and espn. There are a few more listed on each scout and I will add more if interest level increases. And by all means if you get info please post, I don’t claim to be a connected man, just one who really loves LSU basketball and visits recruiting sites a few times a week!
