The Tigers have a huge need at that position and one of their targets is Denver (Col.) Mullen standout Chris Guarnero (6-4, 265, 5.0).
About six weeks ago Tiger Rag interviewed Guarnero and he stated that LSU and Oregon was his top two schools but since then two others have joined the fray.
"Right now it's pretty close between Cal, Oregon, LSU and Colorado," said Guarnero, who has offers from all of his favorites, including Nebraska, Wyoming, Kansas State, Arizona State, Arizona and Iowa State.
Guarnero is currently camping at Oregon but he corresponded with LSU recruiting coordinator Josh Henson and offensive line coach Stacey Searels as recent as Sunday (Father's Day).
"They sent me a text message and I responded to both of them," said Guarnero. "They were wanting to know if I was going to make it down in July for a camp and telling me how bad they really want me."
Henson and Searels have made it clear to Guarnero that he is one of their top o-line prospects and that there is a chance he could get some early playing time in Baton Rouge.
"That's big too," Guarnero said of the chance to play early. "LSU only has like two juniors and a few sophomores after this year so they need some big bodies on the line."
Guarnero said when he returns home from his trip to Oregon he wants to sit down and try to sort some things out. Could there be an early commitment in the works?
"Maybe in mid July but not right now," he said. "After I get back from Oregon I'm going to try and narrow things down some. I'd like to get it down to a few schools and then go from there."
LSU still in the thick of it
