Travis Dickson Commits To LSU


Ocean Springs, MS tight end Travis Dickson visited LSU this weekend with his family and gave his verbal commitment to LSU's staff. Dickson is a heck of a tight-end prospect and is rated 4 stars by Rivals, Scout, and ESPN. ESPN also rates Dickson as the #59 overall player in the nation. Dickson is 6'3" 235 pounds and fits the mold of a receiving tight end, much like his brother. They have some an evaluation and some video of Dickson here.

That brings LSU's class of 2010 to 22 commitments. Without much room left, it's easy to focus on the players still left on LSU's board. I'll try to do a review of the prospects still out there sometime early this week.


LSU went through their first scrimmage of the fall on Saturday and the news coming from the Ponderosa was relatively predictable.

Jordan Jefferson and Jarrett Lee performed well at QB, though Jefferson threw one interception to Patrick Peterson.

Les Miles singled our receivers Brandon Lafell, Terrance Toliver, and freshman Reuben Randle.

Russell Shepard participated at quarterback, running back and wide receiver.

A few players were out due to minor injuries including Perry Riley and Jacob Cutrera.

Freshmen defensive ends Sam Montgomery and Michael Brockers each logged a sack.


Starting this week, I'm going to begin my preview of all the teams on LSU's schedule this season (leaving off ULL, Tulane, and LA Tech). I'll put out a new preview each day, culminating in my overall SEC preview, complete with predictions, at the end. The previews are designed to be a relatively quick and easy read which should give you some awareness of each team's outlook prior to the season. Look for the Washington preview on Tuesday. I'll continue to update recruiting and LSU's team during this time as well.
