S/S Any news on him possibly wanting to rejoin the LSU class after the aggies have signed 500 receivers in this class?
Haven't heard anything at all on that and it would be an unusual turn of events. I'm not sure if I can recall someone doing that off the top of my head. Can you?
Not that I can remember. I just don't see a way Parker could do that and save face. If he leaves the aggies he looks like he is afraid of competition and everyone would always know LSU was not his first choice.
If Leslie and Gardner can't get the grades to join the class, how worried should be about our current receiver class? Should Avery or Diarse be able to make an impact next year?
Not sure why everyone is freaking out about our WR's..... Hope they get in , but its not like Miles will change and start throwing the ball 40 to 50 times a game. Thats why we have a stable of backs yr in and yr out .. Much more worried about Fornette next yr than any WR... We could have Jerry Rice here and he only would get about 4 touches a game..
Didn't Brent Calloway go Bama-Auburn-Bama? Anyway, I'd take Parker back. He had a good season for Manvel and still adds the height that our WR corps is lacking.
AGREE 100 %
Out of the two, I would say Diarse has a better chance of playing next year. In fact, I think it will be hard to keep him off the field because the kid is such a GAMER
Does Diarse really run a 4.7?

And it looks like Reuben Foster could do the same thing this year....

Hell, at 49 young years of age, I still run a 4.7.
Even though, I really like Diarse. He just balls is all. Seen him a couple of times at DB and he looked to bait the QB into throwing the rock by lagging back and his closing speed was good. He made the INT those times or at least batted it down. He reminds me of Moore for the Saints.
I know you were exaggerating, but we threw it almost 28 times a game. By the end of the season as the passing game began to jell Landry caught 8,9,4 and 8 passes the last four games of the season. So I think we can see the chance of a wide receiver having a major impact.
In 2005 and 2006 we threw a similar amount and in 2007 we threw it over 31 times a game. So, while I agree 40 or 50 times a game is unlikely, 27-31 attempts a game is enough to need some really good receivers if you want an effective offense.

This was my answer in another thread.....
I've witnessed him run a 4.7 range at a couple of combines when he wasn't in playing shape meaning they were in February and March.
Anyone who has seen him play, though, will attest to his football speed is better than 99% of your guys that run in that same range. And his short area quickness is exceptional.
