I'd love to get Williams, Quinn, Noil, Dupree and Sims in the '14 class. Besides all being very talented, they all bring something unique to the table.
Williams will be a junior and should be more physically mature than the rest. Quinn appears to be the best route runner. Noil is a smaller guy who should excel in space. Dupree is probably the most athletic, but coming from a running offense probably will need the most tutelage. Sims satisfies some tastes for a "big WR".
So while 5 WRs may be a hefty number at one position, they all being such unique talents and Williams be a junior and a probable one-and-done, going after all 5 makes sense to me.
How many are we taking for 2014?

I agree with everyone, but what if two absolute studs want to come onboard? What are we to do? Take seven? Sim's is tall, noil is fast, and Quinn definitely can run a route and do it quickly, he can.... This is a good problem to have for sure. Then u have Washington at tight end, yes, we are stacked.
With all due respect you mean an OOS stud like Justin Hunter or Mike Davis? A kid OOS who suddenly gets the itch to stay closer to home come signing day? I wouldn't want to tell any of these 5 in-state kids that could go anywhere in the country that we don't have a spot for him/them because a kid from (for example) Texas wants to come to LSU early in the process, until the Longhorns or some other closer school turns on the pressure or makes an offer?

I agree to a point but think D.J. McCarthy's resignation had as much to do with both guys decommitting as anything else.
What we did to Texas Tech with Boone and the Aggies with Fobbs afterwards was more like the totally clean scenario of a kid getting the late offer and deciding to stay home.
Because the home grown WR talent is greater than any year I can remeber,I hope LSU gets the in-state guys. Hope Les doesn't have to worry about the "National" guys. But he's got to keep every option open because these guys are also going to be "National" guys to every other team.
While we're talking about 2014 receivers, everyone should know one LSU offered that has been committed to Florida St. since July may be about to decommit.
2014 is nearly as deep at WR as it is at DB's. Lots of good guys interested in LSU.
With Met improving that's not going to change.
As reported Monday, junior ATH Jacob McCrary of Miami is wavering on his commitment to Florida State and Clemson is a strong player for his services. Speaking on the strength of his commitment he sai

Big question for me is whether Cameron Sims gets in or not. The coaches seemed to all like him in camp, but Quinn-Noil-Dupre were just a step above I guess.
I find it hard to believe you leave a guy like Sims out with the kind of athleticism he has. Some factors with theses guys will be where are they with grades, does the staff see Noil as a possible DB, does Leslie stick in 2013, does Diarse stick at WR or move to safety, and does Baker make the grades?
I hope for Williams, Sims, Quinn and Dupre with Noil in as an athlete.
The biggest knock on Sims at camp was that he didn't run nearly as well as Dupre and co. He also didn't catch the ball very well. Sims admitted that he was nervous and stuff.
I think the biggest thing that could hurt Sims is if LSU signs D'haquale Williams because 5 WR's is 20% of your class. Also, will have to keep an eye on what happens with John Diarse and Rickey Jefferson in terms of position along with Jaryl Brazil.
Agree with Sonny. There is a potential log jam coming at WR with all of these guys. In an offense that only starts two WR and does not throw the ball much, it will be interesting to see how this plays out.
If what you saw against MSU is a sign of what's to come with the offense in the future it will look a lot more appealing to signing multiple high-caliber WR's in the same class. They went 3 and 4-wide half of the time in case you missed the Weekly Film Session piece.
I agree Sonny! My pointt was more that with so many 2013 guys potentially being at WR, and with the slew of 2014 talent, I can tell you that recruits pay attention to numbers/depth at their position. It is one thing to have 6-8 WR when you routinely go four wide, but when you have 8 WR's and use alot of two wide formations that may cause some to do some number crunching, especially when they are all top 100 guys! Having said that, as a selfish fan I hope we get them all!
In today's day and age of recruiting they definitely pay attention to those numbers like you mentioned. That's why it is imperative that you have a staff that can deliver the message and keep those lines of communication open throughout the process.
