LSU has a bowl game this week, but fans are more excited about high school practices and exhibitions.
This week's Under Armour High School All-American Game and U.S. Army All-American Game will be loaded with the future stars of college football. A majority of the nation's top uncommitted seniors will be making their announcements on where they currently want to play next season.
It is important to remember these are teenagers. Most of these high school prospects can still change their minds before national signing day in early February. Also, a player's recruiting rating means nothing once he steps on the gridiron in college. There will be plenty of booms and busts.
Nevertheless, 5-star recruits are given their rating for a reason. They are viewed as immediate contributors. LSU has eight 5-star uncommitted targets, four of whom are from the state of Louisiana.
If New Orleans legend Leonard Fournette chooses to play his football anywhere but LSU, fans will melt down as if the Tigers had just lost to Alabama. Middle-aged men in Louisiana have never been so nervous over teenagers who have beards.
The Tigers could finish with the nation's No. 1 class if they land some of these prospects. Let's take a look at their current status during all-star week.
