Recruiting roundup

What prospects made the trip to Baton Rouge for Saturday's home opener against Northwestern State?

LSU welcomed a handful of high school football prospects to campus for Saturday's home opener against Northwestern, a number of whom are already committed to the Tigers for the 2012 class.

Alonzo Lewis, who signed with LSU last February but enrolled at Copiah-Lincoln Community College after he fell short on the academics side, made the trip to Baton Rouge, and Lewis said that the LSU staff has continued to keep in contact.

Lewis played both sides of the ball at St. James High, but was recruited to LSU as a safety. Lewis played wide receiver in Copiah-Lincoln's opener last week.

From the 2013 class, cornerback Jamil Collins, the younger brother of 2011 cornerback signee Jalen Collins, made the drive down from Olive Branch, Miss.

Dutchtown's Shelby Christy, a 6-foot-3, 175-pound wide receiver, came in from Geismar where he spent the majority of the day with LSU's commitments from the 2012 class.

After a big win over Notre Dame of Crowley on Friday night, Breaux Bridge's trio Lamar Louis, Travin Dural and Kavahra Holmes were all on hand.

In Friday's 28-12 victory, Breaux Bridge's first over Notre Dame since 1998, wide receivers Dural and Holmes both went for long touchdowns of 87 and 75 yards, respectively. Dural added a second receiving touchdown on a 12-yard score, and Louis – who played both linebacker and running back – added a 47-yard touchdown run to cap off a huge night for three future Tigers.

Crowley High running back Davante' Bourque, a one-time Texas A&M commitment and current LSU pledge, made the drive in with the Breaux Bridge group.

West St. John's Ronnie Feist and Thibodaux's Trey Granier were both in attendance, a pair of future Tigers who will join Louis as linebackers under the watch of defensive coordinator John Chavis.

O. Perry Walker cornerback Dwayne Thomas and John Curtis tight end Dillon Gordon were the other commitments on hand.

Eight of LSU's 14 commitments from Louisiana were in Tiger Stadium on Saturday night.
