You have no favorite boards.
“There is no off switch on a tiger”
why do you have to have someone at #1? Why not rate by position? In rating overall, you are trying to compare apples to pears. Fournette has things that Robinson, for instance canot do. Robinson is a force in the line, but Fournette, for instance, does not have to do the same things. You should list as must have, can't miss or something like that. Maybe, a list of game changers would be valid.
No.1 probably Fournette but I have a fealing Quinn will be the best player.A real difference maker at reciever for these Quarterback recruits.

Fournette is important as older RB's leave our program. There are really good backs every year and LSU lands their share. Robinson is great and solidifies the OL which always needs replenishment. Willis is like Fournette as a DL he would maintain the pipeline going in there with high quality.
My pick is Hootie Jones: CB's this large and good are usually called Charles Woodson, Cornell Green, and Mel Blount (who actually went to Southern back in the day). Jones will play from day one even on a loaded team.
Regards to All,
I'll go with Robinson since he's from my WM.
But it really could go either way with him and LF.
My favorite recruit so far is Speedy though.
Late to the party again. Still playing catch up but I've been trying to weigh this out in my head for a while.
I also believe games are won in the trenches and at LSU (the whole SEC for that matter) the lines (big uglies) are what separate us from other conferences. So I have to go with Cam Robinson and Gerald Willis. I think Gerald Willis is just as good on the Dline as Cam Robinson is on the Oline. These two are must gets.
As far as most need, I'll go with Fournette. With LSU being a physical,first run team, and taking only one RB last cycle and none this cycle, Leonard Fournette becomes a big priority.
As far as non trench guys ( or skill players ) I think defense is Hootie Jones and offense is Speedy. I think Quinn is gonna be great, and Dupre has tons of upside, but I think Speedy Noil is gonna be real special. He might be my favorite Louisiana recruit without counting importance or need. Also can't wait to see three Tight End sets with Dillion Gordon, DeSean Smith, and Jacorey Washington.
My La top 5 in order (and it's tough) is:
1.) Gerald Willis (LSU is a defensive team and he is a trench guy)
2.) Cameron Robinson ( trench guy that can make most RBs look good while protecting the QBs blind side)
3.) Leonard Fournette ( once every 5 years RB at a need position for a running team)
4.) Hootie Jones ( size, speed, physical, and can play any spot in the secondary
5.) Speedy Noil ( super fast/ quick, elusive with stop and start like no other can be a offensive weapon) * favorite
