RECRUITING: Our detailed database

Les Miles is putting the finishing touches on his 2006 class and barring any late defections by players who have already committed the Tigers have a good chance to finish with a Top-10 class.

There are not many guys left on the board but here is a look at who LSU is still in the mix for along with my predictions on how the Tigers will finish up.

Bold: Indicates has LSU offer.

Quarterbacks: Needs: 1; Committed 0

 Running Backs: Needs: 3; Committed 2
