    Tremayne Standberry is from Lewisville, Texas and is the 19th ranked Tight End in the Nation. Rivals lists him as a three-star player at 6' 3", 255 - 4.8 40. He is supposed to be one of the best blocking Tight Ends in the Country.

    Dandy Don lists him at 236 pounds.
     
  2. Sounds like a solid player, we need LB's though. In a big way.

    Hey Big atheletes like that are great.

    Think about is Spears was the Number 1 TE in the nation and a 5 star. Look where he is at now.

    However it should would be nice to have a weapon like we have had in the past in Kinchen, Royal, and Lefluer...

    I haven't heard anything yet, but......

    my suspicions are that his offer was conditional. Don't quote me on this but it sounds like LSU might have given word that Stansbury would be offered if others didn't commit, namely Norris and Jamesly Jean. I have to say that if this is the case then someone dropped the ball. This commitment should have never happened. It looks bad for us to give an offer and then take it back. It seems like the second time this has happened too (Ben Henderson). I sure hope that the communication between Saban and his field personnel improves if all this proves to be the truth.

    Once again,.....this is only LsuBruce's suspicions and opinions. None of this has been reported by anybody.

    Yup he is no longer commited to LSU. I hope your suspicion is wrong. This wont be good for us. A kid commits all the way from North Texas, then gets the Uhh... Well Call..

    Not good.

    If his offer was conditional, then who did he commit to is what I'm wondering? If he called someone at Tiger Rag and said I'm commiting to LSU, but didn't call Saban first, then as bad as I feel for Standberry, it's a mistake on his end. Unless Standberry had an unconditional offer & paperwork in his hand, it's not likely LSU's at fault for this mixup. At the same time, maybe Standberry felt the offer was his to accept at any time, seeing that LSU offered him last spring.

    The best thing anyone can do is trust Saban & Saban's process. He and his staff are the only ones who have the facts. If LSU did offer Standberry conditionally, then perhaps Saban feels very good about another tight end commitment who he feels is a better prospect. Of course it's just conjecture, as someone like myself would have no idea.

    Perhaps Standberry will wind up a Tiger when it's all said and done.
