LSU Football Recruiting: Boys from the Boot 2014 Overview

LSU once again is hosting the Boys from the Boot camp that will invite some of the top prospects in the state of Louisiana. So let's check out who those attendees are and what to expect at the camp.


As many of you may know, LSU annually hosts the Boys from the Boot camp. There, they host the top prospects from the state of Louisiana and a few from outside. The camp takes places today, Saturday, February 15. It gives some players who already hold big interest from LSU the chance to impress even more, some who don't have as much interest the chance to gain that interest from the LSU staff, and it is thought that some offers could he handed out.

Here's the full list of players set to attend.

2015 Prospects

ATH Jalen McCleskey (5'10", 156 lb., Covington) - No Rating for McCleskey.  He'll have to impress the staff at the camps over the summer to earn an offer. Tennessee/LSU lean

OT Oshea Dugas (6'5", 300 lb., Lafayette) - Dugas is an off the radar OT prospect who like McCleskey, will have to impress the LSU staff to get more interest before his Senior season rolls around.

ATH Derrick Dillon (5'10.5", 165 lb., Franklinton) - 4* ATH, #11 overall in Louisiana. A prospect thought to potentially be receiving an offer this weekend. Currently an LSU lean.

CB Xavier Lewis (6'0", 175 lb., Reserve) - 4* RB, #6 overall in Louisiana, #155 overall nationally. Lewis was a one time LSU commit, but is still seen as an LSU lean.

OG Garrett Thomas (6'6.5", 303 lb., Many) - 3* OG, #13 overall in Louisiana. Thomas doesn't yet hold an offer from LSU, but could receive one this weekend. He's high on LSU and Alabama and is an LSU lean.

QB Jason Pellerin (6'3", 200 lb., New Iberia) - 3* QB, who also is listed as an ATH, he's #21 overall in Louisiana. Pellerin has been personally recruited by Corey Raymond, but for right now only holds offers from La Tech and ULL.

RB Orlando Bradford (5'11", 195 lb., Shreveport) - No rating for Bradford. He's one of the guys looking to impress the staff and gain more interest.

RB Derrius Guice (5'10", 195 lb., Baton Rouge) - 4* RB, #3 overall in Louisiana, #68 overall nationally. Guice is a very talented RB prospect, who currently holds 3 offers, but 2 come from LSU and Alabama. He's seen as an LSU lean.

S Kevin Henry (6'1", 200 lb., Baton Rouge) - 4* S, #8 overall in Louisiana, #230 nationally. Henry, who could wind up at LB, is a hard hitting and talented Safety prospect who committed to LSU a few weeks back.

TE Bry'Keithon Mouton (6'2", 230 lb., Lafayette) - 3* TE, #19 overall in Louisiana. Mouton has one offer, from Miami, but also some interest from LSU and Alabama.

WR Jaquel Grant (6'1", 190 lb., Donaldsonville) - *3 WR, #16 overall in Louisiana. Grant has been personally recruited by Frank Wilson so there's an outside chance at an offer, but he'll also have to impress at some of the camps in June.

WR Stanley Morgan (6'0", 185 lb., New Orleans) - 3* WR, #12 overall in Louisiana. Morgan has received offers from many top schools, SEC and across the country. He's yet to receive an LSU offer.

DE Jozie Milton (6'3", 294 lb., Clinton) - 3* DE, #34 overall in Louisiana. Milton's an off the radar prospect who's been recruited by Arkansas, Arizona State, and La Tech. There has been some crystal ball action for him to LSU.

OG Grant Burguillos (6'4", 280 lb., Mandeville) - Burguillos is a prospect yet to have a rating, but is a mobile and talented OG. His lone offer so far is from Hawaii.

CB Ronald Broussard (5'10", 175 lb., Lafayette) - Broussard is another off the radar prospect who hasn't yet received a rating.

WR Terrell Chatman (6'3", 180 lb., Baton Rouge) - 4* WR, #10 overall in Louisiana. Chatman is another very talented WR this year and has been recruited by Cam Cameron and Adam Henry.

RB Nick Brossette (6'0", 207 lb., Baton Rouge) - 4* RB, #2 overall in Louisiana. #53 nationally. Another one of the big, bruiser type RB's this class, Brossette is the #5 RB overall and an LSU commit.

ATH Lanard Fournette (5'9", 170 lb., New Orleans) - 3* ATH, #41 overall in Louisiana. Yes, his brother is Leonard. Lanard has already been recruited quite a bit by LSU, Alabama, and Texas but it's likely he ends up at LSU with big brother Leonard.

ATH Christian Campbell (6'1", 185 lb., Ponchatoula - No rating as yet for the ATH Campbell, and he's definitely one who will hope to show off some skills and hope to garner more interest from LSU.

OLB Bo Wallace - Wallace is like Dugas, an off the radar prospect looking to garner interest ahead of his Senior season.

LS Blake Ferguson (6'1", 235 lb., Buford, Georgia) - The talented LS is the only prospect not from La. attending. He's the #2 rated LS.

WDE Isaiah Washington (6'4", 225 lb., New Orleans) - 3* WDE, #31 overall in Louisiana. Washington has been recruited by both Tennessee and Alabama, and has an offer from the latter. He also holds interest in LSU.

ATH Deshawn Capers-Smith (5'10", 170 lb., New Orleans) - 3* ATH, #23 overall in Louisiana. Capers-Smith plays on both sides, at CB and as a Dual Threat QB.

WR Daylon Charlot (6'0", 177 lb., Patterson) - 4* WR, #9 overall in Louisiana, #242 nationally. Charlot is a talented WR who was very high on LSU but didn't receiver an offer and committed to Alabama two weeks ago. He's still thought to be high on LSU and his status could change if he receives an offer.

WR Darius Williams (6'1", 165 lb., New Orleans - 3* WR, #30 overall in Louisiana. Williams took a visit to LSU back in September but that's it from his recruitment as of now.

WDE Joe Anderson (6'4", 240 lb., Reserve) - 3* WDE, #15 playerr in Louisiana. Anderson is a talented, top 2A high school player who has been personally recruited by both Frank Wilson and Brick Haley.

DT Ritchie George (6'3", 325 lb., Reserve) - George like Dugas and Wallace is a real off the radar prospect. At 325 lb., George would of been the biggest DT and player in LSU's 2014 class.

WR Jazz Ferguson (6'5", 205 lb., Saint Francisville) - 4* WR, #7 player in Louisiana, #178 nationally. Ferguson is a very athletic WR for his frame and has been recruited by Frank Wilson

OLB Arthur McGinnis (6'1.5", 203 lb., New Orleans) - 3* OLB, #27 player in Louisiana. McGinnis has been offered by 5 SEC schools and Texas Tech. He's been recruited by Frank Wilson and John Chavis but A&M and UCLA are his leaders.

DT TD Moton (6'4", 310 lb., Shreveport) - 4* DT, #5 player in Louisiana, #99 nationally. Moton is one of the top DT prospects for 2015. A former Miss State commit, LSU and A&M are now his favorites.

CB Henry Black (5'11", 176 lb., Shreveport) - 3* CB, #33 player in Louisiana. Black is another talented player out of Shreveport. He attended Junior Day at Texas A&M recently and is now seen as a Texas A&M lean.

2016 prospects

He was offered by LSU back on June 3rd when attending a camp, and has already visited multiple times.

ATH Mykel Jones (6'0", 180 lb., Patterson) - Jones has had an interesting recruitment so far. A colorful Crystal Ball to say the least and has been to many different campuses for visits and camps. He named LSU his leader in September,

DT Edwin Alexander (6'3", 280 lb., Hammond) - The very young but talented Alexander was high on LSU from the outset and committed on November 23.

QB Shea Patterson (6'1", 180 lb., Shreveport) - Patterson committed to Arizona WAY back in December of 2012. He's still been recruited by Clemson and TCU along with LSU via Cam Cameron, but has yet to be offered.

Willie Allen (6'6", 265 lb., New Orleans) - Allen is considered one of the early top prospects for 2016, boasting obviously his big frame, but also is very athletic and a two sport athlete (football and baseball).

QB Deuce Wallace (6'2", 200 lb., Reserve) - Wallace is a dangerous and talented dual threat QB and has been putting up tons of yards early in his HS days. One to watch out for the 2016 class.

DT Briston Guidry (6'2", 245 lb., Metairie) - Guidry is a lighter and quicker DT, who could bulk up or maybe slide over to DE depending on how he develops over the next few years. He's been recruited by both Frank Wilson and Brick Haley

Malik Antoine (5'10", 175 lb., Baton Rouge) - Antonie has already been on the LSU campus 4 times and has shown some ball hawking ability early in HS playing days.

2017 Prospects

ATH Dylan Moses (6'2", 220 lb., Baton Rouge) - We all know about Dylan, who was the most sought after 14 year old ever last year, being recruited heavily by LSU, Alabama, Auburn, and Baylor. Dylan committed to LSU in September and is the youngest attendee of this year's Boys from the Boot camp.

It's also been reported that LSU CB commit, and #1 overall player Kevin Toliver II will be taking a visit to LSU during the camp this weekend. And recent LSU signee, WR Malachi Dupre will also be in attendance to do some recruiting for the Tigers.

Now onto what will take place once they arrive in Baton Rouge.

Registration will occur around 10 a.m. Once that his finished, the prospects and those who are there with them will go to listen to Les Miles address the whole group. The prospects also go sit down with their position coaches who go over a variety of things and sometimes look at X's and O's and the like. Academic tours and sit downs with LSU academic advisors, along with tours of the athletic facilities all take place. Some prospects have one-one-on meetings with Les Miles, and offers do take place and commitments also happen. 4* prospects, TE Jacory Washington and OG Will Clapp both committed to LSU at this event last year.

It's a big event every year for LSU and one to keep an eye on for future classes for the Tigers.
