Kennard Swanson is in as an #LSU commitment for 2013. He will project as a fullback. Will also be at camp in July to work out for staff.— Shea Dixon (@Sheadixon) June 5, 2012
Short, squatty build, think J.C. Copeland all over again. Swanson plays DL in HS, but he is coming to LSU as a FB. Explosive off the line. Handing out a scholarship to a guy who is a future FB only says a lot about what Les sees as the future of the offense. Swanson looks like a nice player. I'm not enamored with offering a FB this early. However, it is and will be an important part of making our running game go, so I understand why Les did it.
