Visitor List Heavy on Talent

LSU's weekend visitor list was heavy on talent, both from the 2011 and 2012 classes. Go inside to find out which prospects were on hand.

Saturday evening’s 8 p.m. kickoff against West Virginia proved beneficial for LSU on the recruiting trail, a perfect setup for the state’s top high school talent to fit in a day of film study with their high school teammates followed by a night in Death Valley.

Of LSU’s in state commitments for 2011, only three of the prospects - La’el Collins, Trai Turner and Paul Turner - were not on the field before the game to watch the team during warmups.

White Castle safety Ronald Martin, Breaux Bridge defensive tackle Quentin Thomas and O.P. Walker defensive tackle Anthony Johnson were the defensive names in the group, while Redemptorist running back Jeremy Hill, Capitol offensive guard Corey White, Lutcher wide receiver Jarvis Landry, Franklinton running back Terrance Magee and St. James athlete Alonzo Lewis rounded out the offensive side.

Thibodaux offensive tackle Greg Robinson, Newman athlete Odell Beckham and St. Paul’s defensive tackle Mickey Johnson headlined the LSU targets from Louisiana that remain uncommitted to a college. The visit to Baton Rouge was the first of the 2010 season for all three prospects.

Robinson will be back to Baton Rouge for an official visit the weekend of the Alabama game. Beckham has not set his return date, while Johnson, a Covington native, won’t make LSU one of his five official visits.

Catholic High quarterback and Northwestern (Ill.) commitment Zach Oliver was in attendance, as was Leesville High athlete Levander Liggins and Acadiana High defensive back Bakari Hollier.

From the 2012 crop, Mallard Creek (North Carolina) offensive tackle D.J. Humphries was the top prospect in town. The 6-foot-5, 261-pounder, ranked as an early four-star prospect, already has offers from double-digit programs, including the likes of LSU, Georgia and Notre Dame.

Humphries made the trip alongside his father.

From Louisiana, the top underclassman in for an unofficial visit was Thibodaux linebacker Trey Granier. Granier, who picked up an LSU offer earlier this month, made the trip with Robinson and a handful of their THS teammates. Breaux Bridge’s Travin Dural (2012), St. Augustine running back Leonard Fournette (2014) and Destrehan’s Rickey Jefferson (2013) rounded out the group.

Stick with through the weekend for updates on each prospect’s visit.
