Lights. Camera. Action?
That may be next in the recruitment for wide receiver Rayce McMath.
The 6-foot-3, 200-pounder out of Edna Karr High School (New Orleans) put in a show for LSU running backs coach Jabbar Juluke and Alabama running backs coach Burton Burns on Thursday during his spring game at Harold “Hoss” Memtsas Stadium in Harvey, La.
Juluke, who used to coach at Karr and has a longstanding relationship with the program and McMath, spend much of Thursday’s spring game videotaping the wide receiver to bring back to LSU.
Afterward, LSU’s New Orleans area recruiter raved about what he saw on the field.

“He said he has some good film on me,” said McMath, who has received visits from not only Juluke, but offensive coordinator Cam Cameron and wide receivers coach Dameyune Craig multiple times this spring.
McMath is patiently waiting for the offer from the in-state Tigers to roll in. After the coaches can view what Juluke did, believes he’s on the right track.
“I’m very confident,” McMath said.
That wasn’t Juluke’s only message for McMath.
The LSU coach emphasized the importance for the New Orleans receiver to attend one of the Tigers’ prospect camps this summer. That was also Craig’s message for McMath upon the duo’s numerous conversations in the past few weeks.
Craig wants to work out with McMath, and may soon have an opportunity to do so next month when the receiver returns to LSU’s campus.
“He told me to come to camp,” McMath said. “He said to come get that offer.”
