If there's another position coach in the nation that has earned his paycheck more than Dameyune Craig since he joined the staff in February, I would love to know. After fighting off Alabama for five-star receiver Stephen Guidry a little over a month ago, he followed it up with a surprise commit from four-star Mannie Netherly earlier this week. That hot streak continued with a commitment from another four-star receiver in Jhamon Ausbon following a very successful trip to Baton Rogue the previous weekend.
What Ausbon Brings to LSU
(Hit Mute, just trust me)
At 6-2.5 and 217 pounds, Ausbon is a unique style of receiver that is becoming more uncommon recently due to his physical stature and dominant size. You can see he already knows how to use his frame to box out smaller corners. He then has enough speed to separate himself from the pack and win a foot race to the end zone. Ausbon will be a nice change of pace in the wide receiver department in the mold of an Anquan Boldin, a solid possession receiver but can be a deep threat on mismatches as well.
The commitment of Ausbon should put LSU into the top five in the class rankings and puts the Tigers in a great spot to make a run as the start of the college football season inches closer. Everyone was praising the new additions to this coaching staff in the off-season, and Craig is already paying huge dividends on the recruiting front.
