    Recruiting

    QB REEVER COMMITS TO LSU: LSU has received a commitment in football from quarterback Jordan Reever of Garland, Texas. Reever, 6 feet 2, 205 pounds, completed 530 of 865 passes (61 percent) for 6,622 yards and 70 touchdowns in 26 games as a starter at South Garland High, a Class 5A school near Dallas. His completion total is the third-highest in Texas Class 5A history. Reever missed five games as a senior with a dislocated elbow. South Garland was 9-3 in 2003 and won its first district championship in 30 years. "The question isn't why did I pick LSU; it's more like who wouldn't want to go to LSU?" Reever said. "Baton Rouge is a great city. LSU is a national champion, and I think the SEC is the most difficult football conference in the country. LSU's offense suits my style because it gives the quarterback a lot of freedom." Reever, who visited LSU this past weekend, also visited Brigham Young. He said he received grant-in-aid offers from Baylor, Syracuse and Maryland. Reever, who is academically qualified with a 3.4 grade-point average to play as a freshman, said he will report to LSU in June. LSU did not sign a quarterback Feb. 4, national letter-of-intent signing day. . . . Defensive back John Vigers (6-3, 185) of Tara in Baton Rouge has committed to Nebraska. Vigers is expected to sign later this week with the Cornhuskers. Redemptorist All-State running back Jay Lucas (5-11, 205) said he will sign with Nebraska, Central Florida or McNeese State. Vigers and Lucas are on The Times-Picayune Top 20 Blue-chip list.

    Getting a player the caliber of Reever to walk on is HUGE. Now we only need to sign one QB in next years class(Perrilloux). His quotes in the Times Picayune say volumes about where we are on the football map at this time especially as compared to where we were 5 to 10 years ago. Welcome aboard Mr Reever glad to have you on our side:geaux: :lsug: :D

    It is amazing that we can get a QB who is third in career passing yardage in Texas history in the highest HS classification as a walk on . Saban & Co. continue to kick serious a$$ in recruiting.

    Also, you have got to like this guy's attitude. He is willing to give up a free ride for at least a year at a lesser school in order to pay his own freight and be a TIGER, and he knows he will be competing against guys like Flynn and Russell for playing time.

    I don't know how talented Jordan Reever is, but so far his mental game is right on target. He may surprise everyone.

    Watch the guy come in and end up being a great QB and winning a job in 2 years, you know, one of those feel good stories that you get tired of hearing the announcers talk about all of the time like no one has ever reported it before.(Chad).

    Reports out of Texas are that he hurt his throwing arm this year so his coach took the emphasis off of throwing and that is why his stats weren't much higher. he supposedly could make all the throws and is a very good athlete. Welcome aboard Jordan and it's great to have you decide to be a Tigah!

    I've seen some of his video and the kid has a good arm and also looks to be pretty athletic. He's a great addition to the Tigers!
