Louisiana puts out too much talent on an annual basis for LSU to offer scholarships to everyone so some players look out of state or take their chances and accept invitations to walk-on.
New Orleans-Brother Martin free safety Keithshone Dantzler is a prime example.
The 5-11, 182-pounder has a consistent 4.6 forty time and he plays the game with a lot of energy and emotion.
As a junior he recorded 140 tackles, six sacks and four interceptions along with first team All-District and All-Metro honors.
He is drawing heavy interest from Arkansas and Indiana, Michigan, Michigan State, Louisville and Northwestern are also filling his mailbox with letters on a regular basis.
"I like Michigan State, Arkansas, Louisville, Indiana and Colorado," he said. "I'm hearing from Arkansas a lot. They would be my leader right now. I like the fact that they play in a tough conference."
LSU has not had much contact with Dantzler but that has not deterred him in his hopes of playing for the Tigers.
"I would consider walking on there because I would like to play for LSU," he said. "They have some good competition there and it's closer to home than anyone else I'm hearing from."
Dantzler plans on making unofficial visits to his top five schools over the summer and he will also attend the Nike Combine in Baton Rouge so he can try to raise some interest from Saban and the Tiger coaching staff.
