Last night, LSU picked up a surprise commitment from Shreveport-Fair Park quarterback Morris Claiborne. He's such a dark horse that not only is there not any film of him available, there's not even a good picture. The word had been out that he could end up a part of this class for a while, and apparently the staff liked what they saw enough to finally go ahead and offer him a scholarship.
He projects to be a cornerback at the next level. I know this is not a sexy recruit. There are very few stars by his name on the recruiting services' websites. Very little is known about him. He is a running quarterback, but no one thinks he will stay a quarterback at the next level. He's an athlete they hope to teach how to play cornerback. He's a good athlete who is the right size for the position (6'1" 180 pounds).
If you recall, Corey Webster was in the same boat. He ended up pretty good at corner.
I am not knowledgeable enough to tell you whether or not this is a good pickup. Heck, even when you have film it's usually guess-work unless a guy is a show-stopper like Russell Shepard. I do get excited, however, whenever an underdog gets a scholarship. This guy is an underdog, and I'd like to see him succeed.
