Linebacker Dusty Rust (6-3, 212) of Shreveport (La.) Captain Shreve is a player that the LSU coaches are definitely keeping an eye on and with the likelihood of LSU now being able to sign its full allotment of 25 players in February they may be able to find room for him as a Tiger.

Last week at LSU's camp, Dusty Rust said he had one of his best camps so far.
"It went really well," said Rust. "I did really well in the one-on-one drills and the seven-on-seven drills. I think I impressed the linebackers' coach in my drills. I was one of my bet camps so far."
Shreveport (La.) Captain Shreve linebacker/strong safety Dusty Rust (6-3, 205) is one of over 200 prospects that will be angling for scholarship offers at this weekend's UA Seniors Camp that begins Friday night and wraps up late Saturday morning.
Many of the young men strutting their stuff in last Saturday's Scout.com Combine on the Alabama campus were trying to improve their stock among college recruiters. And for an upcoming senior without an offer, that's particularly important.
Dusty Rust does not have any scholarship offers on the table yet but has been contacted by various coaches, including LSU's wide receivers coach Todd Monken.
Some of the state's best talent assembled in Baton Rouge Saturday for LSU's annual Junior Day.
When college coaches start making their rounds through Louisiana in search of Division-I recruits for 2007 one stop they are sure to make will be Shreveport-Captain Shreve.
