Copiah-Lincoln (MS)
Rating:
Pos Rank: JC
Committed to: LSU
Commit Date: 1/8/10
Committed Over: Auburn, North Carolina, Tennessee
Scouting Report: Adams is a big athlete capable of playing on both sides of the ball. He logs most of his time on defense at Co-Lin playing both DE and DT. He is quick enough to get pressure on the offensive backfield from his end position, and he's strong enough to occupy blockers when he's inside. What he lacks in lateral movement, he makes up for in strength and leverage. His skill set suit him well as a run blocker or strong side DE in college - Scott Kennedy

Commit Date: 7/18/09
Committed Over: Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia, Mississippi, Nebraska, Tennessee
Scouting Report: Allen is as tough as they come coming off the edge and he is relentless in his pursuit of the ball. Coming off the ball too high is something that Allen will need to work on and sometimes he will overcompensate and come off too low which takes away from his leverage. Allen has a frame that has some thinking about a move to offensive tackle but his speed and intensity would be best suited for defense.

Commit Date: 12/6/09
Committed Over: Alabama, Auburn, Colorado, Mississippi, Texas A&M, Tulsa
Scouting Report: Blue is a running back that runs like a slasher. He is taller back that runs fairly upright and can make a lot of nice cutbacks. He has quick feet and good body control. He runs high and running better behind his pads would give him more yards after contact. He is a better guy outside of the tackles now, so improving his power game will make him a more balanced back. His speed is good and he makes nice cuts. - Chad Simmons/Recruiting Analy

Commit Date: 2/3/10
Committed Over: Auburn, Georgia, Louisville, Maryland, Mississippi, South Florida, Tennessee
Scouting Report: Quick first step off the line, Copeland is consistently the first player off the ball. He uses his hands well to control and dispatch of his blocker. Outstanding in pursuit and a good change of direction. Needs to work on getting off blocks if he loses the battle of initial contact. Has a tendency to stay blocked if the offensive lineman gets into his chest. Has a terrific motor and goes sideline to sideline and downfield. - Scott Kennedy

Scouting Report: Travis is a very athletic defensive end/tight end who is tough as nails and possesses great hands. He will need to continue to get bigger and stronger to make an impact on the next level.

Commit Date: 6/9/09
Committed Over: Clemson, Connecticut, East Carolina, Florida State, Syracuse, UCF
Scouting Report: It is stil up in the air just where Fordham will end up playing at LSU. He played a lot of tight end in high school, but could transition into a center very nicely. He was mainly a blocker in high school and is a very tough young. He likes to play physical, he has that nasty streak, and he is smart about the game of football. The knowledge of playing center is not there and he will need to learn the position if he ends up there. -Chad Simmons

Prattville (AL)
Rating:
Pos Rank: 40
Committed to: LSU
Commit Date: 6/9/09
Committed Over: Alabama, Auburn, Kentucky, Stanford, UAB, Vanderbilt, Virginia
Scouting Report: A good athlete at the quarterback position for one of the best teams in the country, Gibson is a very good athlete with a strong arm. He'll need to work on his mechanics in order to be an effective quarterback on the college level and be more consistent in his accuracy. He's very poised on the field and is dangerous as a runner and as a thrower on the move. A winner, Gibson is very confident with the ball in his hands. Scott Kennedy, Scout.com.
RB | 6-8 / 175
Christopher Columbus (FL)
Rating:
Pos Rank: 30
Committed to: LSU
Commit Date: 12/8/09
Committed Over: Alabama, Auburn, California, Rutgers, Tennessee
Scouting Report: Gore is a smaller back that can be used in many ways on the next level. His hands make him more valuable because he can catch the ball well out of the backfield, he could line up in the slot, and he can return kicks/punts. His size doesn't make him an every down back, but he is good in space because he is quick and elusive. He will be a good change of pace back in college. - South Recruiting Manager Chad Simmons

Committed Over: Mississippi, Mississippi State, Oregon
Scouting Report: Jacobs is a solid run blocker and can also be a factor in the passing game as he has good hands and some athleticism. He's up to 270 pounds which could prompt a move to the offensive line but regardless of where he plays Jacobs will need to get more aggressive, play with more fire and learn to play behind his pads. He also plays defensive end and could get a look there but offense seems to be the best bet.

Committed Over: Alabama, Florida, North Carolina, Tennessee, USC, Vanderbilt
Scouting Report: Maclin is a guy that could play with or without his hand down on the next level and he is even athletic enough to play tight end as well. His biggest strength is rushing the passer and he has very good speed to the ball. If he plays linebacker, then he will need to work on his drops and shedding blockers, but he has a great frame to be a physical linebacker or pass rush specialist in the SEC. - Chad Simmons
CB | 6-9 / 160
St. Augustine (LA)
Rating:
Pos Rank: 31
Committed to: LSU
Commit Date: 7/21/09
Committed Over: Florida International, Miami (Oh), SMU, Southern Miss, Tulane, ULM
Scouting Report: Mathieu is a fluid athlete that has a terrific change of direction, in all directions. He is equally adept as breaking forward on an out route as he is flipping his hips and running with a fly pattern. Is a little undersized, but plays stronger and tougher than his listed weight. He should be able to add considerable strength and muscle weight while continuing to improve on his natural athleticism - Scott Kennedy, Scout.com
OLB | 6-3 / 225
Klein Oak (TX)
Rating:
Pos Rank: 35
Committed to: LSU
Commit Date: 4/19/09
Committed Over: Arizona, Arkansas, Michigan, Ohio State, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State
Scouting Report: Muncie began his high school career as a safety and has quickly grown into an outside linebacker for his Klein Oaks team. With his size and range, that's the position that seems to be his best fit on the college level. He's a long strider that runs well, but early in his linebacker career it appears he is still feeling his way around the field rather than attacking. He's solid in pass coverage, but needs more experience - Scott Kennedy, Scout.com
DT | 6-4 / 280
Archbishop Shaw Jr (LA)

Commit Date: 7/18/09
Committed Over: Florida State, Louisiana Tech, Mississippi, Mississippi State, Nebraska, Texas Tech
Scouting Report: Porter played defensive tackle but will start out and is projected to play offensive guard at the next level. He hasn't spent much time on the offensive side of the ball but was impressive on the camp circuit before his senior year. He showed good quickness at getting to the second level and had a strong punch. Learning to stay low and improving his flexibility will help Porter adjust to the move.

Dutchtown (LA)

Commit Date: 3/19/09
Committed Over: Alabama, Georgia, Mississippi, Stanford, Tennessee, Tulane
Scouting Report: Reid played his junior season with a dinged up shoulder but he played the entire year and showed good toughness. He is very physical but can sometimes be too aggressive and take himself out of the play. Some feel that Reid is destined for a move to linebacker with his size but he has very good change of direction skills and the speed to cover a lot of ground.
S | 6-4 / 180
Eunice (LA)
Rating:
Scout300: 129
Pos Rank: 13
Committed to: LSU
Commit Date: 2/28/09
Committed Over: Florida, Mississippi, Mississippi State, Tennessee, Texas A&M
Scouting Report: Simon is a perfect fit for the "athlete" label as he makes just as many plays on offense as on defense. Defensively, Simon is a big hitter and has good range. He has good hips but needs to continue to work on his flexibility if he is to play corner as some predict. Simon could also be a weapon on offense with his size and the mismatches he can cause. He is not shy about going across the middle and has enough speed to be a weapon on the outside.
S | 6-11 / 190
Isidore Newman (LA)
Rating:
Scout300: 275
Pos Rank: 26
Committed to: LSU
Commit Date: 6/8/09
Committed Over: Alabama, Kentucky, Michigan, Mississippi, UCLA, USC
Scouting Report: Vinson could see time on either side of the ball but is slated to get his first look on defense. He played safety at Newman but is projected to play corner at the next level. He will need to get used to playing on the line and work on his jams but once he gets some reps he should be fine as he has very loose hips and can change directions on a dime. He could also see time at WR if called upon as he's very elusive in the open field.

Commit Date: 7/29/09
Committed Over: Cincinnati, Iowa, North Carolina, North Carolina State, Ohio State, Purdue
Scouting Report: Ware is a special player on offense. A high school quarterback Ware projects as a running back due to his lack of height. Ware is great at changing direction and a play is never over until he's brought down. Very strong the only think lacking is over all speed. But with his burst and elusiveness Ware is one of only a handful of players capable of making something out of nothing. – Midwest Recruiting Analyst Dave Berk

Scouting Report: Welter is aggressive and has a good nose for the ball. He gets to the ball very quickly and is a sound tackler. Getting stronger to get off blocks is something that Welter will need to continue to work on but he plays very instinctively which helps him in this area. Playing in space and matching up on faster receivers is something that Welter will have to adjust to but he has good recovery speed and a good grasp for playing the game.

Scouting Report: A big, mobile fullback, Worle is very good as either a lead blocker or dropping back in pass protection. He's a straight ahead runner with soft hands in the passing game. He's not going to make many players miss, and it doesn't look like he minds as he relishes contact. Has good balance and has quick feet. Blue Collar fullback prospect with outstanding size and team effort mentality - Scott Kennedy, Scout.com.

Commit Date: 1/24/10
Committed Over: Alabama, Florida, Nebraska, TCU, Tennessee, Texas Tech
Scouting Report: Wright is more polished than any other wide receiver in Louisiana for 2010. He has good size and although he doesn't have great speed he has good quickness. He is a fluid route-runner and can use his quickness to beat jams. Wright is very effective at finding open areas and can be an asset in the red zone with his leaping ability. Improving his straight-line speed is something he will need to work on.
