If you take a look up and down LSU's depth chart, you will find a ton of freshmen and sophomores who not only earn playing time, but are currently starting for the No.7-ranked LSU Tigers.
On offense, the teams top running back, Jeremy Hill, is a freshman. He has rushed for a team-high 631 yards and 10 touchdowns this season. His 130 carries are 50 more than the next running back, Kenny Hilliard, who by the way, is only a sophomore.
On the offensive line, true freshman Vadal Alexander showed up in camp ready to compete for a starting job, and now he is the Tigers' starting right tackle for the Tigers. His partner in crime, right guard Trai Turner, is also a freshman.
Flipping the switch to the defensive side of the football, the Tigers are loaded with young, talented players that contribute.
Kwon Alexander, Ronnie Feist, Lamar Louis and Jalen Mils have all made significant contributions on the defensive side of the football for LSU.
In other words, Miles dosen't sit freshmen simply because they are freshmen. If you are good enough to play, Miles will find a spot for you out on the football field, which recruits have to love.
