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’s Sam Spiegelman to discuss why the Tigers recruiting will not be harmed after whipping by Mississippi State, if the Tigers are making ground on elite signal caller Justin Fields and his latest Louisiana Top 30 prospect rankings.
Tigers recruiting is fine after Mississippi State
Getting blown out is never a good look when it comes to recruiting the nation’s best prospects. However, it is not a valid reason for fans to overreact.
Spiegelman spoke to an anonymous player who is being heavily recruiting by Mississippi State and LSU. He says the prospect was not all that impressed with the Tigers or the Bulldogs on Saturday.
Spiegelman does add Ed Orgeron must avoid similar games to keep trust with the players he is pursuing. Too many bad loses will steer the elite playmakers away.
Louisiana Top 30
Spiegelman released his latest Louisiana Top 30 rankings, which featured some major changes.
No. 20 Pooka Williams was not in his initial Top 30, but the Kansas commit has turned the heads of the LSU recruiting staff with his game-breaking speed. Bryant’s favorite prospect Ar’Darius Washington made a massive leap in the rankings as well. Washington is now being heavily pursued by recruiting-rival TCU.
Justin Fields hype continues
Georgia commit Jadon Haselwood told DawgNation Fields is choosing between LSU and Georgia. The 5-star dual-threat quarterback just made an official visit to Baton Rouge for the Tigers throbbing of Chattanooga.
Spiegelman says if LSU lands Fields, it would be a better feeling for Tiger fans than hitting the lottery. He compares the No. 1 prospect in the country to Super Bowl champions Russell Wilson and Aaron Rodgers.
Spiegelman still believes the Tigers have a better chance of flipping TCU quarterback commit Justin Rogers, but Fields is definitely in play.
