    FW Star's early top 20 Texas recruits for 2006.
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------


    I know, it's real early in the process and recruiting may be the last thing some want to discuss. Anyway, here it is. Lets hope LSU can get an early start on some of these studs. Les Miles is supposed to have a lot of strong contacts in Texas.

    That is one big difference that I expect to see from Miles.

    More recruits from the West of Louisiana rather then the East Coast

    It's not early, I guarantee you programs are already in on these kids. Let's hope we're one of them.

    Miles did well in Texas, especially the Houston area, while at Oklahoma State. I expect him to go after the cream of the crop in Texas and have better chances of landing them. :thumb:

    as long as the guy keeps a lock on La. LSU will be fine.. add texas talent, and the elite status will remain.

    You know this past year we had 6 or so recruits in the first 3 weeks of the recruiting season.

    You're right islstl, Beckwith, Hitt, Keyes and Ward all commited within a few days of signing day, Robinson and Hawkins about a month later. What a roll that was.

    I'd be surprised to see that many early commits this year. I'm sure kids will want to see how LSU does with Miles at the helm. If we do Miles is the man.

    This Fort Worth Homer doesn't know diddly squat. He's repeating other folks work with his "spread out" Top 20 List, just "dissin" the Houston Area bigtime and playing some butt kissin' politics based on the Texas District format & MVPs. There are much better out there & many more with better size & speed.
    LSU recruiting focuses in the Houston area for one reason. We're not dumb. LSU coaching staff "IN THE KNOW" KNOWS where the best talent is in Texas. Miles isn't the sharpest tool in the recruiting shed, but he's stated LSU will focus on a search area 5 hours from BR, i.e., Greater Houston area.

    On the board this year, Texas has ZERO TE's worth a damn, IMO. Just a lean year at the position. About a dozen good OL on the radar (average year), about 6 DL (average year), loaded at LB (great year), lean at DB (drought year with almost no great talent). On the up side for Texas, good RBs are thick as fleas & it's a fair to good year for QB.

    LSU is seriously looking at about 10 Texas players "on the 2006 board" right now worth a damn, and that's 50% of what LSU did under Saban last year. In a few more weeks, the short list for camp invites will be known. 2006 will be a very "down" & lean year in Texas, and Miles knows it. He'll sew up Louisiana's Best only with a great season, or it's gonna be a "jailbreak" in LA in 2006. But make no mistake about it, everyone will challenge LSU in LA this year. 2006 will be the finest crop LA has ever produced when all is said and done.

    There's usually plenty of work for LSU to do in Texas. But in 2006, they better spend enough time in state to keep recruiting up in the Top 5 or Top 10 where it belongs.

    Otherwise a very good post. He's sharp enough to be making one hell of a lot of money with one of the greatest jobs in the world.
