LSU Football Recruiting: Breaking Down Tigers Current Team Needs for 2013 Class
The LSU Tigers 2013 class is much better than their 2012 class.
Les Miles and his staff have put together a recruiting class that features four ESPN 150 recruits and 11 ESPN 300 recruits. For such efforts, Rivals has LSU’s class at No. 3, 247 Sports has them at No. 6 and ESPN has the Tigers listed at No. 11.
But before this class reaches its full potential, it needs to gain three more big-time recruits.
The first priority the Tigers need to focus on is at the defensive tackle position. The Tigers are known for always having great defensive tackle recruits, developing them into high-caliber athletes and shifting them off to the pros.
After glancing over the Tigers' recruits, they have yet to land a game-changing defensive tackle. And quite frankly, that's rare for LSU. The team has a 4-star defensive tackle in Anthony Jennings, and he could become an impact player, but the Tigers need to grab another recruit.
The Tigers will most likely be replacing both Craig Loston and Eric Reid, assuming Reid turns pro after his junior season. Thus, the Tigers will need much more depth at the position.
Depth that 4-star Priest Willis could certainly help Cutrer fill. Willis is already scheduled to visit the Tigers, and if LSU can reel him in, it would serve as some nice insurance if Reid turns pro.
A wide receiver recruit isn't a must have, but it couldn't hurt LSU. So far, the Tigers have received commits from 4-star Rickey Jefferson, 4-star wide receiver Chuck Baker and 4-star athlete John Diarse.
All of whom are great athletes, but with so many potential primetime receivers still on the board as considering LSU, the Tigers need to concentrate on bringing them on board.
The most notable wide receiver available is the No. 1 ranked wide receiver by ESPN, 4-star Ricky Seals-Jones. Seals-Jones is the type of player that can step in and play immediately, and with this being Russell Shepherd's last season with the Tigers, LSU might need him.
Overall, the Tigers have a solid recruiting class in 2013. If they can land a top recruit for these three positions, this class could serve as one of the nation's best.
