LSU did not have a real good day on the recruiting front on Tuesday.
Virginia wide receiver Justin Hunter has “de-committed” from LSU and is now considering several schools including Tennessee and Virginia. In my opinion, Hunter was LSU’s best prospect on the commitment list and losing him is a big, big loss. After signing just one wide receiver last year, LSU now has zero receiver commitments for the Class of 2010. That’s not good. Reportedly, some LSU coaches were heading to Virginia tonight to try and salvage the situation but it doesn’t sound good.
Also, California defensive tackle Cassius Marsh is having second thoughts about his commitment to LSU. He’s apparently thinking things over and strongly considering LSU. The distance from home seems to be the biggest factor. Marsh recently enjoyed a great week at the US Army All-American game and has seen his rankings with the recruiting services sky rocket as a result. In a year when LSU needs defensive tackles, LSU would be left with just one if Marsh leaves.
More to come…
