It's finally official. Derek Edinburgh is now an #LSU Tiger. The big Karr OT went public with his decision after camping in Baton Rouge.— Shea Dixon (@Sheadixon) July 20, 2011
Big boy out of Edna Karr High School in New Orleans. Made an impressive showing at camp this weekend. He's a legit 6'6", so he's got all the size in the world. Not a shocker, this was expected to come for weeks now.
#LSU just picked up a commitment for the Class of 2012. Airline TE John Thomas is now on board as pledge No. 6.— Shea Dixon (@Sheadixon) March 31, 2011
Airline High School TE John Thomas just gave his pledge to Les Miles. Thomas is a big, athletic TE who visited over the course of last weekend. Looks to be a case of a player heading home, talking it over with the folks and pulling the trigger after a great visit. I don't know a ton about him at the moment, but he's a big (6'6, 240) prospect that looks like he could even grow into an offensive lineman.
Two Edgard, La. kids - Dillon Gordon and Ronnie Feist - from different schools commit to #LSU in the same day. Gordon: "We're like brothers"— Shea Dixon (@Sheadixon) February 5, 2011
LSU is now up to 5 commitments for the 2012 class, another fast start for Les Miles and company. Gordon is a big-bodied TE from John Curtis (I know, right?). And Feist is a super-athletic LB from West St. John. The two are best friends. Honestly, I don't know too much about either player, but I'll start doing some digging for future posts.
Davis is an OLB prospect from Woodlawn HS in Baton Rouge. Miles admitted yesterday that he would have liked to reel in another LB prospect in the 2011 class, but the 2012 class is off to a hot start with 2 LB commits already. He boasts offers from Alabama, Auburn and Oklahoma amongst others. Just as Miles puts the 2011 class to bed, it's back to the recruiting grind for 2012.
