RSJ this year, Speedy Noil & Trey Quinn for next year are all kids that LSU & TAMU are both recruiting. Did the Aggie win in Bryant Denny Saturday affect or impact those kids? Sumlin and A&M have almost unlimited resources-A&M is rolling in dough-and they are going to make a push into Louisiana. To an extent, they've already gotten some kids like Obiaha, Tony Hurd, and perhaps some others that were more back-burner types who couldn't quite get that LSU offer.
But with RSJ, Noil & Quinn, we're talking about kids LSU has identified as a priority that A&M is fighting us for. What kind of impression did that W make, Sonny/Shea/anyone who might venture an opinion?

Thank you for the honest insight. Would be thrilled with Beckwith and Bain in the 2013 class, but a tall WR is needed (especially with the academic situation for Baker). There are 2 in state WRs for 2014 in the 6'2"+ range, but was optimistic on one being added for this upcoming class.

Is it just me, or is the thought of Beckham, Landry, Boone, Wright, Leslie & Dural striking me as making us a decent WR core next year?
The word around the campfire is that Dural was going to see the field, and with a year in the program, he could make a move up the depth chart in the Spring. On top of that, Avery Johnson being here in December will jump-start his attempts to make an impact as well. Heck Tre'Davious White or Rickey Jefferson may end up at receiver also.
But the X-Factor is Leslie. If he stays healthy & translates his play to this level, I think he makes the entire receiver core that much better. He seems to be what we're missing.
Quinn & Noil are SEC-difference makers from what I gather. Juluke's development of Noil is very good news for us and his ability to see the field early for the Tigers based on what I've heard here and elsewhere.
But thanks Sonny & Shea. The insight's always appreciated.
Our WR corps sure is getting open alot more with the offensive balance restored. Guys like Leslie and Dual can/will find their niches. I like where we're headed. RSJ or no RSJ we will be fine.
I'm pretty sure we'll see both of those guys at CB instead of WR. We need elite talent at that position and that's what those guys represent. Both "could" play WR if needed, but I don't think either will.
