LSU Offers OL Trai Turner


LSU offered St. Augustine high school offensive lineman Trai Turner on Monday, becoming the 26th school to do so.  Turner also holds offers from Arkansas, Nebraska, Michigan, Kentucky, Mississippi State, Stanford, and Tennessee among others.   I've got Turner ranked #15 on my state rankings, a couple of spots ahead of current LSU commitment Corey White.  I'm very glad that LSU has offered Turner.  In any other year, he'd be a lock to be a Top-10 player in state. 

Turner plays right tackle for St. Aug, but he could certainly move inside and play guard at the next level and that's where most project him. Turner has huge size at 6'5" 335 pounds but he carries his weight well and is quick on his feet. 

It will be interesting to see how LSU finishes up their OL class.  LSU has two commitments already on board, and it's tough to imagine them taking more than two more.  There is no question that LSU badly wants Thibodaux's Greg Robinson.  LSU has also been heavily recruiting Mississippi's James Maiden, and it seems that Maiden is even favoring the Tigers.  But now with an offer in hand, Turner has to be considered a lean to LSU as well.  It's a good problem to have.  Here is some film of Turner:
