TIGER WRAP

It's a short week for everyone so this week's edition of the Tiger Wrap is coming to you a couple of days earlier.

In this brief Wrap we will take a look at the latest on Louis Holmes, Dexter Manley, Jr., Damon McDaniel, Keiland Williams and Chris Mitchell.

There are three prospects scheduled in town for their official visit for the Arkansas game with Dexter Manley, Jr., Louis Holmes and Damon McDaniel as the celebrated trio.

Manley and Holmes have been confirmed but as of Sunday night McDaniel was still a little uncertain because his team is still in the playoffs and is scheduled to play on Friday.

There is a good chance Manley could pull the trigger and give the Tigers his pledge.

"If I feel as comfortable with the other coaches as I do with coach (Karl) Dunbar then there is a good chance I could do it," Manley told Tiger Rag. "I don't know what it is about LSU but I've always liked them. I'm excited about getting down there."

Holmes is making his second trip to Baton Rouge as he spent a few days down in the Capitol City over the summer.

Dunbar really wants to sign the five-star recruit and this trip could seal the deal for Holmes.

It is unlikely that Holmes would make a commitment on the trip, or at least go public with it, because he may visit Florida, Florida State and possibly Tennessee or Oklahoma before he makes his decision. He said he wants to try and choose a school by mid-December because he will enroll in at the school he chooses in January.

I had my doubts on whether LSU wanted both of the juco defensive ends but everything I've been told over the past couple of weeks indicates that Dunbar wants these two to as book ends.

Two more blue-chip recruits planning on visiting for the Arkansas game on an unofficial trip are Keiland Williams and Chris Mitchell.

Williams, a five-star running back from Hargrave Military Academy, played his first three years of high school ball at Lafayette-Northside before he took his game to the high-profile military school.

I've said all along that Williams would be a Tiger and I would not be surprised at all if he committed before he heads back to finish out the year at Hargrave.

He may decide to take advantage of the opportunity he has and to take some official visits but in the end he will return to his old stomping grounds and don the purple and gold.

Chris Mitchell is a three-star receiver of Marrero (La.) John Ehret that is probably underrated and more deserving of a four-star ranking, at least in my opinion.

Mitchell did not get to play a full season due to Hurricane Katrina but once John Ehret did start playing again he was a human highlight film. He played quarterback, running back, receiver, safety and even returned kicks.

LSU already has one commitment from a receiver in London Crawford but there is room for at least one and possibly two more.

After his senior campaign, Mitchell has shot up to the top of LSU's list and has the coaches hot on his trail.

He will visit LSU the weekend after the SEC Championship game and there is a good chance he leaves Baton Rouge as an LSU commitment.

That is all for now but be sure to check back over the weekend for anupdate on visits and how the Tigers fared against the Hawgs.

Tiger Rag would like to extend a warm and safe Happy Thanksgiving to all of its subscribers, as well as to all of the military personnel serving our great country and keeping us all safe.
