Not to sound like a dick, but I'm surprised you're conpletely overlooking the appeal of free trips. I see no crime in traveling across the country to be "wined and dined" and see top football games in person. Plus, there was a lot of uncertainty about LSU's offense heading into the season, so I'm sure these recruits promised some big programs they'd be sure to receive a visit. With that said, I'm pretty nervous about Speedy and A&M, but we should fine with the other guys.

I didn't know where I wanted to go to college, or if I even did, until after high school. I realize it's different but still. It's a difficult decision, made even more so by people tugging you one way or another from all directions. Some people just know and some it takes time to choose the right place.
Because like all high profile players they agreed to announce at these stupid all star games.
Many tend to think a lot of these guys have been silent commits to LSU for awhile now otherwise Miles and staff would have more commitments on the board. The only one that received a lot more interest was Adams after Hootie decided on Bama.
Exposure wise, LSU will end up better off if they announce together.

I hate to say it because so may potential LSU signees are in this category but there are a lot of HS players that enjoy that individual spotlight on national TV. Thanks ESPN, ESPN2, ESPN3, ESPNNEWS, ESPNU, ESPNMars......
