- SEC TEAM RANK: No. 2
- NATIONAL TEAM RANK: No. 3
- LAST YEAR’S FINISH: No. 3 (SEC); No. 6 (nation).
- NO. 1 CURRENT RECRUIT: RB Leonard Fournette (No. 1 in nation)
- FINAL TARGETS: DB Adoree Jackson (No. 7); WR Malachi Dupre (No. 17); DT Travonte Valentine (No. 65); LB Kenny Young (No. 175); DE Sione Teuhema (No. 353); WR Emanuel Porter (No. 366); DT Trey Lealaimatafao (No. 439).
- WHAT SURPRISES LIE AHEAD?: LSU is primed for a monster finish tomorrow, and the big question is–how much will the Tigers push Alabama for the nation’s No. 1 spot. That should be something interesting to watch. Dupre, Valentine and Teuhema are thought to be near locks, while several of the others list above are sleeper picks. Teuhema was a Texas commitment until Tuesday, and he would be a huge pickup at the defensive end spot. Flipping Porter from TCU would be nice too. Les Miles is going to be a happy camper tomorrow, it’s really only a question of how happy.
- SDS WEDNESDAY ‘DRAMA’ RATING (1 TO 5): No doubt, a 5. Along with Florida, this has the potential to be the nation’s hottest finish.
