As for those who I think will contribute, after watching practice for a week and listening to what the coaches have to say, here's is our two-cents
The skinny: With Jacob Cutrera coming to LSU in January, he has a head start and is physically gifted. Charles Scott is gaining momentum and Miles and Fisher were almost giddy about his performance at Media Day. From what I have seen from both Jared and Chris Mitchell, they have great hands and are slashing type runners after catching the ball. Both have the look of playmakers. Electrifying. Also, Miles keeps talking about them.
Has a shot:
Lazarius "Pep" Levingston
The skinny: Jai
Eugene has a broken thumb right now, but Miles alluded that when the season gets
On the edge:
The skinny: Williams, Murphy, Singleton and Woods all have the talent to come in and contribute as freshmen. However, still waiting for clearance from the NCAA Clearinghouse is hurting their chances to play as true freshmen. It has nothing to do with ability, it is all about getting their football legs under them and understanding the system. As every day passes, they move closer to a redshirt.
Will likely redshirt:
Andrus is going to get caught up in a numbers game. He has a great body, but the
Tigers are so deep in the secondary. Also, being a transfer doesn't help his
chances in terms of him not being familiar with the system. Miles has mentioned
Thomas and that he could be a good player at LSU. But at the same time, he
(Miles) did mention he wasn't currently in great shape. Lott and Dickson will
get caught up in the numbers as well as LSU has six tight ends (Keith Zinger,
Mit Cole, Kyle Anderson, Doug Planchard, Andrew Wright and Alonzo Manuel) ahead
of them. The only time we have noticed Snyder in action was a scolding he got
from offensive line coach Stacey Searels last Wednesday. He has a good body, but
likely is a project.
