  • Seems like we could get McCray ... How good of a prospect is he? Also seems like the writing is on the wall with Lane.

  • It would be nice if PP7 could hold a local camp down there for kids from that area. He could become a local hero to those kids and it would be huge in helping lsu grow what already seems like a pretty solid pipeline in dade and browerd counties. 2 areas that produce some of the best high school talent in the country

    South Florida Express Tryout Observations

    --2015 CB Tavarus McFadden (American Heritage) was one of the most impressive prospects there and he jumps out at you from a physical standpoint. He's about 6'3", 180 and can run. 5 offers already from LSU, Notre Dame, FSU, BC, and Ole Miss. He will be a national recruit.
    >>>>>This is the kid that LSU recently offered:

    --A lot of people including myself think Ermon Lane is the best receiver in the country and he dominated yesterday as usual. He's a legit 6'3", 190 and has a thicker build than you would expect. He makes plays so effortlessly that it doesn't even seem like he's trying (he's not most of the time.) The one criticism of him that some people had out there is that he can be a little stiff at times. In games, he basically goes deep exclusively so it's tough to get a read on his route-running abilities. He is as good as it gets as a deep-threat.

    -The next big thing out of Miramar is 2015 CB Tyrek Cole. He had a breakout season and then was shutting kids down all day in the 1-on-1s. 5'11", 175 with crazy long arms and he can run with anybody. Tracy Howard and Deon Bush were looking on and were "wowed" by his performance.
    >>>>>he does list LSU:

    -Sony Michel is back to 100% after his knee injury a couple years back. He played this season kind of tentatively, but was as explosive as ever yesterday...obviously this is without pads. The scary thing about him is he continues to get bigger and bigger every time you see him. He looks like an NFL running back. He seems legitimately wide-open in the process right now.

    -A name to watch out for is QB Sean White. I don't think he's necessarily Miami caliber, but he will garner good offers. White was at Chaminade-Maddona the last few years and tore it up from a numbers standpoint. He made the move over to University School a couple weeks ago and will have a lot of weapons around him. He was the best QB out there and has a really nice zip on the ball. Very fundamentally sound and is a good athlete as well.
    >>>>>like all good Florida lids that start at a smaller school, this kid recently transferred to a larger, more successful, program (there will be a reason no one has heard of him):

    -One of my personal favorites in all of South Florida is 2015 Killian ATH JaQuan Johnson. Johnson has been one of the top 5 players down here in the last two seasons and he was impressive yesterday. He's only about 5'10", but has really bulked up since back in the summer. Miami offered yesterday and he also holds offers from UF, Clemson, and Marshall. He has great ball skills and the thing that really separates him is his instincts.
    >>>>>Kid already has the offers mentioned and an FSU one:

    -2014 DE Chad Thomas was in attendance yesterday walking around. Just from seeing him in person, you can tell the type of freakish athlete he is.
    the kid that says LSU, Miami & FSU are his favorites:
