With the likely blowout out of the way with Fournette. This time, the offense will take on the defense in a battle of finesse and smoothness versus meanness and grit. Who prevails?
No. 4 Seed Clifton Garrett
When you look for an enforcer for your defense, Clifton Garrett fits the bill. Through the over 7 minutes of highlights in the above video, you know every one of those kids could tell you who hit them the hardest when they are aching days later. Garrett possesses the speed, instincts and hitting power you look for in a middle or strongside linebacker. He embodies what you want in an LSU player when his recruitment was basically over when he took his first visit before his senior season even started. It's a name you will hear quite often in Death Valley, so get used to it now.
No. 5 Seed Trey Quinn
With offenses how they are today, numbers tend to be higher, but when you set a national record with 6,566 receiving yards, you are doing something very special. Just take a look at that number for a second. That means he averaged a little over 1,600 receiving yards in his four years of HIGH SCHOOL. That right there is impressive enough, but those numbers still don't do him enough justice. I could make the cliche remarks about his video, but the guy just does everything right. Most say his rankings took a hit due to his size and lack of top-end speed, well he set out to fix that, getting up to 200 lbs. in his 6'1" frame and recently ran a 10.4 100M. That's what I call devotion and a true Tiger.
Both players are the epitome of what you look for in a Tiger, but unfortunately, only one highlight tape can move on. So does the intimidating linebacker advance? Or will it be the record-breaking receiver?
Two Things To Remember:
1. You are voting on who has the best VIDEO. Not who you think will be better at LSU, not who you think will project to be a better NFL player. You are judging the two videos above.
2. You have until Friday at midnight to cast your vote for your selection before the poll closes and we move on to our next matchup later that morning.Two incoming freshmen face off once again in the first round of the tournament. Which side will you favor, offense or defense?
