This kid’s recruitment has turned into quite the storyline. Initially he was leaving his HS and transferring so he could graduate and be an EE. It was rumored the family moved to Baton Rouge and the brother enrolled in school. Then at the Opening that was said to be false. The LSU mod claimed the parents led him to believe they relocated(or were in the process of relocating). Suddenly OSU is rumored to be back in the picture- probably from Cavazos and Julian Fleming recruiting him. Now kid turns up transferred to IMG and LSU board still says brother enrolled for school at local BR school. Ricks taking visits to other schools including Bama. Going to be a wild ride with him for LSU....

This why I’m kind of hesitant on letting this kid OV. feels like we have 0.1%-2% chance w this kid. too much pride w this university to have all these kids Ov and not commit. We’ll see how this shapes up if Manny starts winning, but imo If Ricks leaves LSU, it’ll be O$U if not O$U than it’ll be Bama. Miami will be a distant 4th.

Why are you guys saying this is bad for LSU? Cali was far for them too. I'm no geography expert but isn't florida closer to LSU too? I get the fact that Lejond is there too for OSU but still. LSU gets DBs regularly so why the panic for them?
Because he is already committed to LSU so him coming to Florida only makes it easier for all the bag schools to communicate with him. Also lejond will be in his ear about Ohio state which was previously mentioned.

You have to remember that Ricks is from Cali. He will more than likely not end up at an SEC school. OSU has a lot of hype right now but I think they will take a step back this year without Meyer. I hope we can get this kid on campus and give him a tour of the city....

This seems most accurate to me. He’s looking at which schools have put out the most CB’s recently. This is clearly a business decision for him, and while we’ve put up roughly the same quantity as these schools to the pro level, the quality is not on the same level.

Listen, this kid coming to IMG is a positive for the U and all of the state schools. It’s a lot easier to get him on campus for unofficials and OV’s from there than it is Cali. We gotta take a shot, even if it’s a long shot....

#1 that's not true. Img doesnt give us an advantage over just about anywhere because the discipline and commitment necessary at img leaves VERY little spare time for a kid to get away from campus. Least that's what I heard. Also only way elias doesnt end up at lsu is if he gets the reclassifying angle down and lsu has no room for him. Otherwise hell be a tiger. Period
