Let's just say Alex Hurst is a mystery.  After the jump, you can get more information.

OK, he's not that big of a mystery, but honestly I have next to nothing on this guy.  Here's his real picture:

Obviously, he's a really big kid, with good offensive lineman size.  He'll have very big shoes to fill, as he'll be wearing Glen Dorsey's old #72.  Maybe it's the number they already had in sizes that would fit him.

He was listed as a 3-star by both Rivals and Scout, and no film is available on him whatsoever.  The same is true of Cordian Hagans, but at least he has some chatter about him out there.  There is nothing on Hurst.  In my time following recruiting, I have never seen LSU bring in a player about whom less is known than about Hurst.

That's not really a bad thing.  It's neither a good thing nor a bad thing.  It just means that the hype machine never reached Bartlett, Tennessee.  

I know one thing, though.  There were some good offensive linemen in Louisiana that LSU never offered, including one who went to the University of Tennessee, but we pulled this kid out of Tennessee.  It wasn't a splashy commitment or a headline grabber, but Les Miles wanted him.  

I'm not going to rate him, because no rating I can give him would be based on anything other than what I've told you, which is virtually nothing.  I briefly considered just not profiling him, but at heart I am a completist, and I decided I had to give it a shot.  I would be shocked if Hurst plays this year, so it will be a while before we know anything at all about him.  

Good luck, Mr. Hurst.  I can't wait to get to know you better.  

When this series continues, we finally get to the headliners.
