The LSU staff has locked up 14 verbal commitments for the 2014 class, but some of the biggest dominos have yet to fall - with a handful of the state's top prospects still uncommitted, with a good portion of the group waiting things out for an announcement at the Under Armour All-American Game in January.
Speedy Noil remains one of LSU's top targets in the 2014 class
As their senior seasons get underway, here's a look at where things stand on the offensive side of the ball for LSU as the program moves towards a 25-man commitment list.
The following uses the 247Composite, which factors rankings and ratings from all recruiting media networks equally.
Committed: Brandon Harris
Harris, the No. 3 dual-threat quarterback in the 2014 class, gave LSU his pledge this summer after entertaining offers from Texas A&M, Ohio State, Alabama, Auburn and others.
Harris' big arm and elusiveness outside the pocket caught the eye of first-year coordinator Cam Cameron during spring evaluations, and the local product quickly moved up to the top of the board.
In his season opener, Harris, a Top 100 prospect, was 15-of-27 passing for 233 yards and three touchdowns in a 55-13 win over Calvary Baptist.
Top targets: (none)
When Ohio four-star quarterback DeShone Kizer committed to Notre Dame over LSU, Cameron's bid for a two-quarterback class ended. Expect Harris to be the lone quarterback the program signs next February.

Committed: Sione Palelei
The country might not be familiar with Palelei, but the LSU staff quickly jumped on the nation's No. 14-ranked all-purpose back following his workouts with the staff during the team's July camp session.
Palelei is already off to a fast start this fall. On Friday, the East Ascension standout totaled 293 all-purpose yards, including the game-winning 99-yard kick return for a touchdown in a 38-34 win over Plaquemine. Palelei rushed for 133 yards and two touchdowns.
Top Targets: Leonard Fournette
There's no denying that from the start, Fournette - the nation's No. 1 running back and No. 2 overall prospect - has been LSU's top target in the 2014 class, regardless of position.
Fournette will make a handful of official visits, but the general feeling is that LSU is the team to beat, with Alabama and USC being the only teams that could potentially pull the five-star prospect out of Louisiana for college.
Unless we see a major shift in his recruitment process, expect Fournette to sign with the Tigers and compete for the starting job by this time next year.
Will Clapp's stock is on the rise after an impressive showing at LSU's July camp
The Tigers hit the guard jackpot in 2014 thanks to a pair of local prospects in Brumfield and Clapp.
Brumfield heads into his senior year ranked as the No. 6 guard in the country, with Clapp sitting in the No. 13 spot. Both are ranked in the Top247, and each had offers from LSU, Alabama and others.
While the main targets have been identified for just about every position, there's still some questions on where the offensive line spot turns for a final prospect. For now, the staff hopes to fit an offensive tackle prospect into the final 11 spots, which would both complement the duo of Clapp and Brumfield and replace the void left with the spot previously saved for Cameron Robinson.
Mama is one of the country's top uncommitted offensive linemen, but he is widely projected to have a future on the inside. If the staff wants immediate depth at the position, they may turn to the JUCO rankings for names like Blair or Hedelin. If they go the high school route, watch for Missouri's Brian Wallace and Texas' Elijah Rodriguez to get closer looks from the staff in the coming months.
Committed: Jacory Washington
At 6-foot-5 and 220 pounds, Washington should be able to bulk up and help LSU in the run game, which is what tight ends coach Steve Ensminger loves in his targets each recruiting season. Washington's talents in the pass game are already well-respected, and he heads into his senior year ranked as the No. 6 tight end prospect in the 2014 class.
Malachi Dupre is ranked as the No. 1 wide receiver on the 247Composite
Washington, who was one of the first commitments to LSU's current class, kickeff off his senior year with four catches for 40 yards in Westlake’s 7-0 win over DeRidder last Thursday.
Top Targets: (none)
With just 11 remaining spots, it's up in the air as to whether LSU will add another tight end prospect in the class.
Washington is already on board, but the staff hasn't warmed up to any other prospects quite yet. Watch for the coaches to evaluate tight ends this fall and then make the call on which direction to go. There remains the opportunity to work commitment Tony Upchurch in as a tight end in the passing game.
Committed: Trey Quinn
Quinn, both a Top 100 prospect and one of the Top 10 recruits in Louisiana for 2014, recently shut his process down by committing to LSU over a double-digit offer list.
The Tigers also landed a commitment from five-star JUCO wide receiver D'haquille Williams, but he backed away from his pledge and jumped on board with Auburn after expressing a desire to leave Louisiana for his remaining college years.
Will Russell Gage find his way into LSU's 2014 class?
With Quinn on board, now all eyes are on Noil and Dupre.
Dupre is ranked as the No. 1 overall wide receiver in the country, with Noil sitting in the No. 3 spot. Both New Orleans native's are ranked as Top 25 overall prospects for 2014, and each remain as 1A) and 1B) on LSU's wish list moving forward.
Each of their 247 Crystal Ball predictions heavily favor LSU, but both will make other official visits before ending their process with an announcement in January.
Committed: Tony Upchurch, D.J. Chark
Upchurch has grown into a 6-foot-2 and 230-pound prospect who could play multiple positions on the college level, from wide receiver to tight end to h-back. While he was recruited to LSU by wide receivers coach Adam Henry, watch for the Tigers to move the versatile Texas prospect around to find out how to best utilize his size and athleticism.
Chark was one of the surprise additions to the class, committing to Miles following his June camp session, where he earned an offer after working out as a wide receiver. From his time at Winnfield at Alexandria, Chark's athleticism is evident, and he could get looks at both receiver and cornerback, as well as a return man on special teams.
Top Targets: Russell Gage
Had Gage camped at LSU in June, it's likely we would have been looking at a toss-up between the two Louisiana sleeper prospects.
The Redemptorist star shined bright at LSU's July camp, which was stacked with four- and five-star talent at the skill positions. Gage consistently won battles as a wide receiver and cornerback, which peaked the interest of the staff in a big way. Since then, Gage has taken two unofficial visits to LSU, including a trip to last weekend's win over UAB.
The staff now plans to evaluate Gage in person over the next month, and an offer to join the 2014 class could follow.
