Class size: 21
Headliner (Offense): Rivals ranked wide receiver Avery Johnson, the brother of former LSU All-American Patrick Peterson, 42nd at his position and 247th overall.
Headliner (Defense): Hoping to add his name to a list of recent elite Tigers cornerbacks (Peterson, Morris Claiborne, Tyrann Mathieu), New Orleans product Dwayne Thomas heads to Baton Rouge as Rivals' No. 14 prospect at his position and 168th overall.
Sleeper: A 6'2", 235-pound center, Reid Ferguson is smaller than each of Alabama's starting linebackers last season. But that's okay, since Ferguson was brought in because he has a specific skill that can make him a four-year starter. He is an elite long snapper, and when you may not have to worry about that again until 2015 or 2016, you have filled a need.
Breakdown: The Tigers received signed national letters of intent from eight offensive prospects, 11 defensive prospects, Ferguson and 6'0", 220-pound, 4-star athlete Lamar Louis.
Coach Les Miles looked to replenish his linebacking corps with 4-star recruits Kwon Alexander and Lorenzo Phillips, as well as 3-star prospects Deion Jones, Trey Granier and Ronnie Feist.
He also added firepower to the secondary with one 4-star signee (Dwayne Thomas) and a four-pack of 3-stars (Corey Thompson, Jerquinick Sandolph, Derrick Raymond and Jalen Mills).
Additionally, LSU brought in a trio of impressive offensive linemen, headlined by prep All-American guard Vadal Alexander, as well as three wideouts and an intriguing quarterback prospect, Jeremy Liggins.
When Liggins sees his first game action, don't be surprised if analysts harken back to the name Jared Lorenzen because, like the former Kentucky quarterback, Liggins is a very big guy, standing 6'3" and weighing 270 pounds.
