LSU Gets into the Mix for Miami RB/DB Robenson Therezie

Brett StephenAnalyst IIMay 21, 2010

With an elite recruiting class already in the works for the 2011 season, LSU is still looking to add to the mass pool of talent headed to Baton Rouge by adding star running back/defensive back Robenson Therezie from Miami.

Therezie, who already has offers from Alabama, USC, Florida State, Kentucky, Tennessee, Ole Miss, Texas Tech and Central Florida, would be a great recruit for LSU to start preparing for Patrick Peterson’s eventual departure to the NFL.

Therezie plays running back as well as safety, but at 5'10", 185 pounds looks more likely to play cornerback at the next level, especially if he ends up in the SEC.

Last season, Therezie posted 81 tackles, forced nine fumbles and had three interceptions. 

A ball-hawk and fearless hitter, Therezie would be a great fit for John Chavis’ system.

However, Therezie was not recruited by Chavis, but LSU wide receiver coach Billy Gonzales. 

With alleged 4.39 speed Therezie fits Billy Gonzales’ love for undersized and speedy wide receivers like Percy Harvin and Russell Shepard.

Therezie could be the next in line to be an offensive playmaker for Gonzales.

Therezie says that he wants to go to a big program that offers immediate playing time, so giving him some reps in the offense could be key to drawing him away from other schools. 

On either side of the ball, this kid is a monster.

As a running back, he hits the hole quickly with very few wasted steps and has the speed to break away.

As a defensive back, he has all of the tools necessary to play at the next level, but would need to add a little size to play safety in the SEC.

However, he can come up and hit guys as well as anyone I have ever seen at the high school level.  He also has the closing speed to play cornerback or to help in pass coverage as a safety.

Plain and simple, Therezie is a football player. 

He can be used in all three facets of the game and Miles should do everything he can to get this kid to Baton Rouge.

Therezie currently has four SEC schools and Texas Tech in his top five choices.
