Beckwith, a 6-foot-1, 215 pound linebacker with 4.5 speed, recorded 110 tackles and four sacks during the 2003 season while playing in the shadows of former All-State linebacker Brenton Burkhalter. Guillot expects him to improve those numbers now that Burkhalter has exhausted his high school eligibility.
"Anytime a tackle is made
Hitt played both ways for the Eagles in 2003 splitting time at fullback and defensive end. On defense the 6-foot-3, 280-pounder totaled 75 stops and four sacks which was good enough for him to earn All-Metro honors.
The LSU coaching staff compares him to one of its current defensive tackles who started for the Tigers as a true sophomore.
"He is a good athlete and they compare him a lot to Kyle Williams," said Guillot. "It's been a dream of his to play for LSU."
It looks like dreams do come true for some, maybe another?
Word is LSU likes the looks of Parkview Baptist quarterback Jacob Lennox as well. However, not as a quarterback. The 6-2, 190-pound Lennox could possibly land at LSU and have his talents exploited at an array of positions.
