This is interesting timing considering the commitment of Alexander this weekend, but LSU offered Houston Cy Falls OLB Otaro Alaka this morning.

This guy looks like a Mingo type DE to me. My guess is that the coaches like him as a pass rush specialist after he puts on a little weight. He appears to be a legit 6"3-6"4 and extremely athletic. Too good to pass on IMO.
Thanks, Brian... my post was not meant to take a shot at this kid at all. It's just that we were only supposedly looking at taking 2-3 LB's tops in this class, and we already have a commit from an OLB. Many feel that we will eventually land Kenny Young too, so that would give us our 1 MLB and 1 OLB that we were originally looking for. I figured we would save a spot for someone like Garrett, but maybe the staff fells like Alaka is on the same level as Garrett. And/or maybe our staff feels the same way as the majority of the posters on here that Garrett will be at OHST. If so, then maybe we save that 1 LB spot for Alaka, and not Garrett.
My post wasnt meant to take anything away from Alaka, but as you mentioned, the offer came at an interesting time because we just got a LB commit and are not looking to take many LB's in this class.
Max Olson from ESPN reporting Alaka just received an offer from Texas today
ETA: Brian beat me to it by a minute lol
