LSU football is the No. 1 topic of discussion every day on SEC Country’s One Team, One Podcast. Host Carter ‘The Power” Bryant is joined in this episode by SEC Country recruiting ace Sam Spiegelman as they chat about the ridiculous story of how College Football Playoff superhero and Amite, La. native DeVonta Smith chose Alabama over LSU in last year’s recruiting class.
Also, Spiegelman discusses his trip to San Antonio for the Army All-American Bowl, the race for the final four slots in LSU’s 2018 recruiting class, what happened to the pursuit of 4-star running back Harold Joiner, if the Tigers recruiting will take a hit with Steve Ensminger taking over for Matt Canada as offensive coordinator, which early enrollees will make the most impact and so much more.
DeVonta Smith choosing Alabama over LSU hurts
Spiegelman discusses with Bryant the insane recruitment of Smith, who had a heavy Alabama lean. However, former LSU receivers coach Dameyune Craig made an impressive push to reel in the speedster that won the Crimson Tide the College Football Playoff National Championship.

Donte Jackson goes pro
Bryant also chats about the departure of LSU star defensive back Donte Jackson to the NFL Draft. His value to the secondary was incredible, as he knew and successfully played all the positions in the secondary.
To end today’s show, Bryant shares why LSU basketball is in trouble against Arkansas and one insane fact on how hoops was originally played.
