A Look At The Board (Defense)

As we bring in the month of September, the LSU staff will crank up its efforts on the recruiting trail as they can begin calling prospects again and going out to further evaluate players on the board.

I've compiled an overview of the current LSU roster along with a look at most of the top prospects on the recruiting board for 2008 broken down by position.

 

Please note that this is a list that I have compiled on my own from interviews and taking to sources. New names will pop up and some will fall off the board for various reasons and as they do I will update this board.

 

A couple of notes to take into account:

 

Prospects in Bold have not yet been offered

Prospects in Italics are sign and place kids

 

Here is a look at the defensive side of the ball.
