"Suber" is portmanteau of "super" and "uber"

Quote
Derek Stingley said his son gave him the best Father's Day present this year — Derek Jr., only 14, earned a football scholarship to LSU and committed to the Tigers. On Sunday, the dad will do as he always does on Father's Day and reflect on his own dad, a man who passed away nine years ago and was the first to note Derek Jr.'s athletic gifts.

Darryl Stingley was a first-round draft pick of the New England Patriots in 1973 out of Purdue. He was a budding star receiver whose life took a tragic turn on Aug. 12, 1978 in a preseason game against the Raiders in Oakland.

"It" was a horrific collision between his dad, stretching for a pass over the middle in the red zone, and Oakland safety Jack Tatum. Darryl Stingley lay motionless on the field while trainers raced to attend to him. The hit was deemed legal by refs, but it left Stingley with two broken vertebrae and paralyzed him front the chest down. It is as gruesome as any play in NFL history.

"He's laying in the bed, and I said 'Dad, get up! Dad, get up!' He never moved. I said to myself, 'Wow.'" The youngster, though, still didn't accept his father's prognosis. He would massage his dad's arms and flex his fingers. "I was basically doing therapy on him all night thinking something is gonna trigger," Derek said.

But it never did.

Derek said he and his father spoke about that specific exchange only once. "He told me 'That was the hardest moment in my life because I couldn't sit up for my baby boy,'" Derek said.

"My dad was my biggest fan," said Derek, who stopped playing in 2004 and has been coaching for the past decade.

In 2007, Darryl passed away in his sleep at age 55. An autopsy determined that contributing factors were bronchial pneumonia, quadriplegia, spinal cord injury and hardening of the arteries.

Darryl's grandson Derek Jr. said he remembers his grandmother showing him the video of the hit that left his grandfather paralyzed when he was 5 or 6.

"They said he'd only live two or three more years but he ended up living 30 years longer," she told him. "He had such a strong heart."

Derek Jr. created some buzz this month in the football recruiting world. The 6-foot, 170-pound cornerback in the Class of 2019 wowed the LSU staff at a satellite camp in New Orleans.

Folks at The Dunham School in Baton Rouge, where the Stingleys live, call Derek Jr. "Little Sting." They rave about how mature Derek Jr. is. Neil Weiner, the head coach of the football team, said Derek Jr. makes one big play after another, picking off five passes last season and returning a couple of kicks for touchdowns. The kid isn't one to do much celebrating. He does everything for the team, even snapping on punts, and is a sprinter on the track team. He also has a 3.8 GPA.

LSU adds another major commitment in IMG Academy WR Jhamon Ausbon

The Tigers continue to roll on the recruiting trail, with the latest addition to the group coming by way of IMG Academy wide receiver Jhamon Ausbon, as announced via Twitter Saturday evening.

The physical, 6-feet-2, 215-pounder selected LSU over Texas A&M, following an unofficial visit last weekend.
 
Ausbon becomes the second four-star wide receiver commitment in as many days, after Texas standout Mannie Netherly made his public declaration late Friday evening.

 

The Tigers made their move on Ausbon during the Spring evaluation period, but have been in contact for some time. His recruitment was initially led by Bradley Dale Peveto, who was his area recruiter prior to his transfer to IMG Academy, and got a big boost from first year LSU wide receiver coach Dameyune Craig. Ausbon took a visit to Baton Rouge last weekend to spend some time on LSU's campus and came away extremely impressed.

It didn't hurt the Tigers' cause that he has family in the Baton Rouge area, either. Following his visit, Ausbon told the LSU staff everything they needed to hear for them to feel confident they were on the verge of landing the dynamic playmaker. Ausbon announced a top four earlier in June, which included LSU, Texas A&M, Auburn and Michigan.

The Tigers now have 14 public, verbal commitments under their belt for the 2017 class. Ausbon also gives the Tigers yet another top wide receiver haul in once again, following arguably the top receiver class in the country just a year prior in 2016.

Four-star wide receiver Devonta Jason and four-star cornerback Corione Harris announced their de-commitments Saturday night after both had committed to LSU earlier this year.

Jason is rated the 25th best wide receiver in the country. Among the schools who had also offered him were Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia, Ole Miss and Mississippi State.

His high school teammate Harris is rated the 29th best cornerback in the country. He had offers from Arkansas, Auburn, Florida, Mississippi State and Texas A&M.

The nation’s No. 9 prospect at the position represents LSU’s first pledge of an elite defensive back in the Class of 2017.

The 6-foot-4, 181-pound safety hails from New Orleans, and at age 6 was displaced by Hurricane Katrina. Delpit and his family relocated to Houston, but still has family that resides across Louisiana.

http://www.nola.com/recruiting/index.ssf/2016/08/lsu_receives_major_commitment.html#incart_river_index


In what may be the biggest recruiting news for LSU this year, Tennessee safety prospect JaCoby Stevens announced his re-commitment to the LSU program Monday afternoon.

Stevens, who committed to LSU in September of last year, picked the Tigers over Alabama, had overtures from most of the nation's premier programs, but ultimately decided to follow his dreams of suiting up in purple and gold.

The 6-foot-2, 200-pounder seemed all but moved on from his initial commitment to Les Miles and staff, before a strong push by LSU in the final hours, led by assistant athletic director and director of player personnel Austin Thomas, with assistance from LSU defensive coordinator Dave Aranda and defensive backs coach Corey Raymond.

Stevens joins another premier safety in IMG Academy's Grant Delpit as the Tigers' two commitments at the position in the 2017 class--a position that was a major need heading into the recruiting cycle. The Tigers are set to lose Rickey Jefferson as a graduate following the 2016 season, with most believing that junior Jamal Adams will vault early for the NFL Draft after the season is completed.

Coming into the recruiting cycle the Tigers' staff hoped to land three safeties in the 2017 class, but with LSU currently sitting at 19 public commitments and a few others close to making public declarations, reaching that number could be difficult.

The most obvious choice as the third safety is Plaquemine safety Todd Harris, who has LSU in his top three along with Ole Miss and Alabama. Another name to watch is Thibodaux's Amik Robertson, who is viewed as a hybrid defensive back by the LSU staff, and is still receiving a lot of attention from area recruiter Ed Orgeron.

LSU DT Travonte Valentine reports to camp

August 08, 2016 at 3:38 PM, updated August 08, 2016 at 5:23 PM

Defensive tackle Travonte Valentine reported to LSU's camp Monday, having gained eligibility after a summer of taking classes, effective immediately, according to Valentine and multiple sources at LSU.

The completion of four summer courses -- two earlier and two more recently -- with satisfactory grades means he can be reinstated to the program. Valentine is expected to anchor new defensive coordinator Dave Aranda's defensive line.

The LSU compliance office was diligent in making sure every hurdle was successfully cleared prior to bringing Valentine in to join the team. Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College turned his completed coursework over to LSU last week, clearly the biggest hurdle of them all. Valentine's progress was closely monitored by the Tigers' staff over the last six months, with Les Miles and athletic director Joe Alleva signing off on the addition, according to a source.

Valentine initially signed with LSU in 2014 and was made academically eligible to play his freshman year, before the SEC overruled the collegiate athletics governing body, forcing the promising defensive tackle to miss his freshman season. A short time later he was removed from the LSU program for a violation of team rules, ultimately landing at Arizona Western College before enrolling at Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College.

Which is it?

Officially, about one-fifth of LSU’s 2017 commitments hail from the Lone Star State. But in reality, it’s about one-third of the 19-member class.


Quote
Delpit committed to LSU last month over Auburn and Florida. Vincent did the same, and Ausbon selected the Tigers ahead of Texas A&M.

All three elite Texans considered Texas A&M. Both Vincent and Ausbon included the Aggies in their final list of schools. Ausbon, a one-time Baylor pledge, continues to hear from the A&M coaching staff as the fall approaches.

Neither of the 4-star prospects included Texas in their final group, though. Delpit believes the in-state Big-12 power is on the rise but isn’t ready to challenge for a national championship like the Tigers.

LSU has been able to attract Texas’ best like Vincent and Ausbon, as well 5-stars such as Deculus and highly regarded 4-stars such as Ingram and Netherly because of how close it seems the program is not winning a championship as early as 2016 and the years to follow.

“I feel that if Texas were LSU, then people would stay in Texas,” he said.

Overall, of LSU’s 19 public pledges, 13 are from out of the state. Naturally, a majority of the 13 out-of-state commits have ties to The Boot, but currently compete elsewhere.

LSU could add upwards of 27 commits before Feb. 1, 2017.

http://www.al.com/sports/index.ssf/2016/08/spanish_fort_standout_justin_t.html#incart_river_index


Spanish Fort star defensive lineman Justin Thomas said all along he wanted to blaze his own trail and not necessarily follow in the footsteps of his stepfather, former Alabama standout Atlas Herrion.

He followed through on that vow Saturday, committing to Les Miles and the LSU Tigers. Thomas talked to LSU assistant coaches Dameyune Craig and Ed Orgeron on Saturday as well as Miles.

"I'm fine with it," said Herrion, an assistant coach at Spanish Fort. "I'm totally fine with it. LSU fits Justin. The style of defense they play is really perfect for him. It's close to the style we play at Spanish Fort. It's a 3-4 scheme and they attack. This is perfect for Justin and it is not too far from home."

RELATED: THOMAS WANTS TO MAKE NAME FOR HIMSELF

The 6-foot-5, 260-pound Thomas has been one of the state's quickest rising recruits since helping the Toros to a 15-0 record and the Class 6A state title in 2015. He finished his junior season with 55 tackles and 11 sacks on his way to becoming a first-team All-State and All-Coastal Alabama selection.

He is No. 13 on AL.com's 2017 A-List, a ranking of the top senior prospects in the state. Thomas is planning to graduate in December and report to LSU in January. Also a standout basketball player for the Toros, he will skip his senior season in that sport to concentrate on his football future.

"I like whatever fit he feels comfortable with," Spanish Fort coach Ben Blackmon said. "I think he's a good football player, and he will make his way wherever he chooses. I'm glad he's settled in on what he wants to do, and I'm glad he can put it behind him and go play football."

Thomas is the second top defensive line recruit on the Coast to commit to LSU this summer. Murphy's Neil Farrell also has decided play for the Tigers. Verbal commitments are non-binding.

In addition to Alabama and LSU, Thomas had multiple national offers, including Nebraska, South Alabama, South Carolina, Tennessee, Troy and Arkansas.

"I think the sky is limit for him," Blackmon said of Thomas. "I think he will just continue to get better and better. He will eventually turn into a really good football player at LSU. He's a good kid, a high-character kid and he is a great athlete. That is a winning combination."

Spanish Fort, ranked No. 1 in the ASWA Class 6A preseason poll, opens the season at Class 7A No. 1 McGill-Toolen on Friday.

In a game for his high school team, LSU 2017 QB commit Lowell Narcisse went down with a left knee injury. He had to be helped off the field and was being looked at on the sideline. Per Sam Spiegelman, Narcisse was able to stand on his own.

Narcisse has an injury history, as he had tore his ACL twice last year. Narcisse is the No. 6 dual-threat QB in the class of 2017.

Hinds Community College receiver Stephen Guidry reopened his recruitment on Sunday, posting on Twitter, “LSU will for sure be my top school but I have to also think about myself and my family.” Guidry, who has not yet returned a message seeking comment, also noted that the coaching shakeup at LSU prompted his decommitment.

For MSU, Guidry is a vital piece. Guidry would be the final addition at wide receiver for the Bulldogs’ 2017 class, according to multiple team sources. His length, speed and ability to stretch the field appeal to the Bulldogs. The Louisiana native is 6-foot-4 and 190 pounds.

Guidry is ranked as the No. 14 overall JUCO prospect in the nation by the 247Sports Composite. He also has offers from Alabama, Georgia and South Carolina.

Four-star quarterback Lowell Narcisse decommits from LSU


The Narcisse

Quote
St. James High and four-star dual-threat quarterback Lowell Narcisse announced Monday that he has decommitted from LSU.

"LSU is a (g)reat school and I have much love and respect for the program, but I feel this is the best decision for myself right now," Narcisse tweeted Monday, also saying he has "thought and (p)rayed long about the situation."

Narcisse becomes the second highly ranked LSU quarterback to do so since Ed Orgeron was named head coach.

Narcisse tore the ACL in his left knee, one season after tearing the ACL in his right knee.

Auburn had an in-home visit with Narcisse on Sunday.

Silent commit finally breaks silence and bites the Dawgs



Quote
MADISON, Ala. — Monty Rice was a silent commitment to Georgia. He loved the relationships he forged with the staff in Athens.

He still loves the way the Bulldogs recruited him. The 6-foot-1, 227-pound ILB prospect told his head coach at James Clemens High School in the wee hours Monday morning that he knew he could trust coach Kirby Smart and assistant coach Glenn Schumann.

Rice chose LSU at a school recognition ceremony on Monday.

He loved Georgia.

After offer, LSU among finalists for JUCO WR Stephen Guidry

https://www.seccountry.com/lsu/lsu-recruiting-2017-class-snapshot-commits

This player has been generating recruiting updates for years.

Quote
Guidry de-committed in October, just days after Les Miles was fired. However, that was only part of the equation.

Guidry had to sort out his grades at Hinds.

Guidry named Mississippi State and Arizona State as his two finalists, but the late overture from LSU has put the Tigers right back in the thick of the race.

LSU is courting top in-state receivers DeVonta Smith and Racey McMath, both of whom will officially visit next month. However, with Jazz Ferguson joining the long list of wide receivers to transfer out of LSU since the offseason, the Tigers are hoping to reel in at least three and ideally four wide receivers in their 2017 class.

Consider Guidry, Smith and McMath priority targets at the position along with 4-star signee Mannie Netherly.

ORLANDO, Fla. — Corey Raymond is widely considered the architect of LSU’s continued “DBU” reputation.

In 2017, the class has even more illustrious energy.

JaCoby Stevens, Grant Delpit and Kary Vincent Jr. are three of the four defensive backs currently committed to LSU. Jontre Kirklin is the other, a two-time state championship-winning quarterback for Lutcher (La.) High, who is expected to transition to cornerback when he arrives in Baton Rouge.

Stevens and Delpit are the Nos. 1 and 10-ranked safeties in the class, respectively. Vincent is the No. 13 cornerback, and all three rank among the top 120 prospects overall.

More important than rankings and stars is the understanding of LSU’s “DBU” tradition. It’s why all three Under Armour All-Americans committed to the Tigers and to Raymond —

3-star out of Karr High made his official visit to LSU this past weekend with his parents, and now he's decided to shut down his recruitment process and get on board with the Tigers for the class of 2017.

McMath had planned to make an official visit to Texas A&M, but cancelled the trip and committed to the Tigers. With more than 15 scholarships under his belt, McMath had offers from a handful of SEC schools before making his final decision.

The commitment gives the Tigers 20 verbal commits for the 2017 class, and LSU remains ranked at No. 7...

We have the answers. Coach Ed Orgeron and staff enter signing day with their eyes on these eight uncommitted targets including Tyler Taylor.

LSU's recruiting focus for 2018? Louisiana's best talent, nation's top running backs

Quote
All eyes now move to 2018, a year in which the state is expected to produce its usual share of top-flight talent, especially at one specific position.

“One thing that jumps off is receivers,” said Shea Dixon, recruiting reporter for Geaux247, a site covering LSU. “They’ve got a commit from (receiver) Kenan Jones. He was one of the best at the Army All-American combine (in January) and right now he’s just the fourth-best in the state.”

The state is loaded at its typical skill position spots — receivers and defensive backs.

Six of the top nine players in the state for 2018 play at one of those positions, including the top three prospects, according to 247Sports’ composite rankings. That includes Bossier City Parkway QB Justin Rogers’ teammate, receiver Terrace Marshal, the top-ranked player in the state, per 247Sports’ rankings. Scotlandville cornerback Kelvin Joseph, an LSU commitment, is ranked second.

Both are the state’s current composite five-star players. They are not running backs.

Running back replaces inside linebacker as LSU’s new position of need.

Coach Ed Orgeron and staff will have to venture out of state to solve the issue, as they did in 2017 at inside linebacker with additions of Georgia’s Tyler Taylor and Tennessee’s Jacob Phillips.

There isn’t a running back among 247Sports’ top 25 Louisiana prospects. Scotlandville running back Trenton Charles is the No. 12 prospect in the state, according to Rivals.com. He does not hold an LSU offer.

“You’re missing that national running back,” said Mike Scarborough, publisher of TigerBait.com, the Rivals.com site covering LSU. “Where’s the next great Louisiana national running back? We’re looking at a stretch here that I haven’t seen before.

“You look at the running back spot,” Scarborough continued. “Who’s the high-caliber running back for 2018 in Louisiana? By now, he should be a household name.”

LSU is on a recent run of Louisiana running backs: Alfred Blue, Kenny Hilliard, Jeremy Hill, Leonard Fournette and now Derrius Guice. The Tigers will be thin at the position after this year, though.

5 early predictions for LSU’s 2018 recruiting class  https://www.seccountry.com/lsu/5-early-predictions-lsus-2018-recruiting-class

Quote
Justin Rogers is Louisiana’s top quarterback for 2018 and one of the premier dual-threat prospects in the country. LSU will make a strong push for him, but likely will follow the blueprint from 2017 and try to add a pro-style passer as well.

Cornerback will be a major emphasis in the 2018 recruiting class. The Tigers hold a commitment from Kelvin Joseph, but are very much in the mix for 5-star Anthony Cook, 5-star Pat Surtain Jr. and 4-star Jalen Green. Additionally, prospects such as Verone McKinley III and Trent Gordon remain on the team’s radar...

Moore left Bastrop as the 34th-ranked weak-side defensive end in the 2016 class. He's expected to play a hybrid position with the Tigers at the F-linebacker or the Buck-linebacker.

Moore had narrowed his finalists in high school to LSU or TCU before he took the junior college route.

Moore is LSU's sixth commitment of the 2018 class.
