Trey Lealaimatafao Signs With LSU

Wescott Eberts

The Longhorns loss is the Tigers gain as the U.S. Army All-American top-35 defensive tackle chose LSU over the Oregon Ducks.

Who would have ever thought the poor coaching of Mack Brown would help LSU out?  Well it did when he was let go as coach of the Texas Longhorns and defensive tackle Trey Lealaimatafao out of Warren High School in San Antonio, Texas, decided to look around.  Once again with the help from Ed Paris, Trey quickly made LSU one of his finalists along with the Oregon Ducks.  With a sister at Southern University already, proximity close to home became a priority and was key in helping LSU snatch up the impressive defensive tackle.

What He Brings To Baton Rouge

Junior Highlights

Senior Highlights

First off, any recruit that uses the Ruff Ryders Anthem for their highlights is good in my books.  While many have compared him to current LSU Tiger Mickey Johnson due to his short stature, that's about where the comparison ends.  Lealaimatafao boasts one of the quickest bursts off the snap that I've seen.  When you can get a step advantage on the guy blocking you like Trey does numerous times on his footage, you can wreak a lot of havoc in the backfield.  He may need to add a little weight to deal with the rigors of SEC football, but that quickness is something you can't teach.

Losing both Freak and Ego to the NFL Draft leaves an open void at the defensive tackle position.  While their may be leaders in the clubhouse going into Spring and Summer practice, nothing will be written in stone until LSU is in Houston playing Wisconsin.  Trey will definitely have a shot at contributing early on if he puts together a solid preseason.The Longhorns loss is the Tigers gain as the U.S. Army All-American top-35 defensive tackle chose LSU over the Oregon Ducks.
