It’s been a bit of a recruiting lull as has come to be expected on the recruiting calendar, but with the weather heating up, so does the recruiting. While this weekend doesn’t have nearly the same amount of flash as the elite camp later this month, but the o-line vs. d-line camp on Saturday and a skill position camp on Sunday still brings in some names.
O-Line vs. D-Line
The biggest name to watch here will be Cameron Wire. While commits Chasen Hines and 2019 stud Kardell Thomas, who might be the most entertaining there, will be there, It appears that Wire has become one of the remaining few o-line targets for the 2018 class. Don’t be surprised if his commitment pops this weekend or later this month at the elite camp. Darnell Jefferies is on a visit to LSU and may be working out, but I want this guy in this class just based off his picture.
The guy just looks mean, just someone I would not want to mess with in the trenches.
Skill Position Camp
LSU commit Jaray Jenkins will be in attendance to showcase why Mickey Joseph and Matt Canada jumped on an early offer for him. Two quarterbacks of note that will be there working out will be Jordan Loving and Jack Samsel. Unless either of these two light it up this summer, expect the staff to just work on flipping either Justin Rogers or Justin Fields. With Myles Brennan and Lowell Narcisse, two Elite 11 QBs, coming in from the 2017 class, Canada may turn his focus to the 2019 class, highlighted by Grant Gunnell.
Jacobi Bellazin, a 2020 wide receiver and TCU commit, put on a show at the New Orleans Opening and committed to TCU shortly thereafter. While TCU is starting to make an impression in the state, there is still plenty of time for this new coaching staff to get him to switch back to the home-state Tigers.
Jonathan Giles, Official Visitor?
Weird for a transfer to commit to a school that he never visited to, but former Texas Tech WR Jonathan Giles, who will be enrolling at LSU in the coming weeks, is taking his official visit this weekend. Giles is one of three transfers, Thaddeus Moss and Breiden Fehoko, that will be joining the team that will have to sit out this upcoming season but could all become impact players for 2018.
