2020 isn't a top class in Louisiana, but it's a deep class in terms of quality. Four kids have given verbals as of the start of this thread. Outside of that, I haven't kept up with it much. I'll try and dig up the expected position breakdown of this class when I can.

Burch to South Carolina a little bit of a surprise, but better than Bama OSU or Clemson.

TigerDroppings is having a meltdown

I admit I didn't like the idea of processing two strong in state prospects especially since we didn't get some of the high profile targets we were looking for from out of state but that is the way recruiting works. The only thing is that most states don't have the talent pool that Louisiana does and most universities don't have the loyalty from in state prospects that LSU does....wouldn't want anything to hurt that

The loss at WR doesn't mean much....we have great ones here and we signed Gilbert who is an absolute BEAST. Plus, from what I understand, Louisiana is going to have a very strong WR class next year

19 signed into the class.

Sounds like Burton and Jarret were surprises. Burch was a guy they supposedly felt good about, but never got any assurances one way or the other. All 3 guys opted for schools close to home, which is always a tough sell. It's not the fireworks we wanted, but this is a ridiculously talented class with six spots left to fill. It will be interesting to see who fills those spots after a few key names didn't sign today.

Burch has not yet sent his paperwork in to USC...

Also, Arik Gilbert and TJ Finley will practice with the team during the bowl game prep. Both are early enrollees. Not sure if anyone else is yet, but Finley announced on Twitter and Gilbert announced on the radio. Not sure about Ricks yet.

Not to mention that there are several big time recruits who have not committed. We got 6 spots remaining and a national championship is going to fill 3 or 4 of them with 5-star recruits

Not really. It's tough to pull a kid out of his home. He could be to Maryland what Kev Faulk was to LSU. Not many kids would see that. Good on him.
There was more to what he said. The staying home part makes sense and is understandable.
