Contrary to what some think, Ed is a Wave fan. I would think Lindsey Scott will read Ed's article.

With Scott visiting sMiles on January 29 what, if anything, is being said about LSU's style of play not being Lindsey's style and what in addition to Daniels' article and advice is Lindsey hearing from his family and friends, especially his father ?

Blizzard to unload immobilizing snow from DC to Philadelphia, NYC
College Park Maryland will be experiencing snowfall in amounts up to 24" starting Friday evening. Metro DC does not experience these kind of snowstorms very often, prompt clearing of the roads and airports may be an issue for those traveling to the area.
Thank you GOD!

Looks like quite the storm. Might be an act of god that Lindsey won't be able to visit either MD or Rutgers.

If he makes it to the Northeast he better bring snow gear. It's going to be a blizzard from Washington DC to New York. 12-24 inches with wind 50 mph.

LSU will get him. They'll then waste him away and overrecruit at his position.

It's really sad, because I think he's got talent and would do incredible things here.

It might be his dream school, for all we know.

True, for most Louisiana football players LSU is their dream school and this has been true for a long time now (we completely squandered 1998). And, 17 & 18 year olds will make many decisions they regret later in life. The rational choice is Tulane, but......

Simple decision:
Contribute, play immediately and get a great education he'll pick Tulane
Sit, watch and dream he'll pick LSU

So we have a QB leave because he thinks he won't play, but we may miss out on a potential QB because he chooses a school where he won't play over us where he would start? Go figure.

Those brighter, at this time, lights that seduce youngsters are hard to overcome for an up and coming program like ours but hopefully Coach Fritz will crack a few of those on NSD.

Agree with this sentiment. But if he were the only quarterback signed by LSU in this class, he's immediately the 3rd best, and probably the 2nd best, option by game 1 of the 2016 season. I've never been impressed with either Harris or Jennings. It wouldn't surprise me if he saw the field at some point in 2016, if he's as good as we all believe him to be.

With that having been said, as far as playing in a system that will feature his skill set, Tulane should be options #1, 2 and 3.

Each SEC school just got a check for $32 mil for 2015. Can you imagine what perks, allowed or otherwise, they are providing to their athletes with all that money. Nobody is watching the hen house so don't think for a minute schools aren't abusing the rules every day.
AAC teams get what 2-3 million? You think the athletes in the SEC might live a little higher off the hog than those in the AAC? So the question is, does Scott think he'll get on the field in BR? The recent trend is go ahead and sign with the bigger school, you can always transfer. Also, don't be naive for one moment to think academics has anything to do with most of these player's decisions. I'll contend that it is a detriment in recruiting this state as most of the players don't have the ability or don't care to work hard enough to excel in class. They want the tutors to do their work.
I will be very surprised if either Scott or Pigrome sign with Tulane.

Mister Scott... I offer this... LSU had on campus for a visit one Tanner Lee, who was told his skills were not what the new offense at Tulane needed....obviously the offense at LSU was deemed to need the skills offered by one Tanner Lee. After going to the video...your skill set and that of Mr Lee, are totally 180 degrees different from each other...now where do you think your skills will be highlighted..LSU or Tulane...( I will offer a hint, the answer has more than 3 letters)

Funny. They just got the former Maryland commit Haskins to commit to them. I guess you can never stockpile enough talented qbs.

As long as Tulane lands either Pigrome or Scott, they'll be fine for 2016. If they land neither, Fritz is going to have to produce a winning 2016 season to improve Tulane's rep for the next crop.

Wow. Two "sit on the bench career" potential offers versus a play and play your best now offer. Let us hope Mr Scott is a PLAYER and not an observer.

Could be. 247 has them #1 and #2 in best recruiting classes.

Talked to a friend of mine that lives in Baltimore about this weekends weather. Scott is scheduled to visit Maryland tomorrow and Rutgers on Sunday the 24th. My friend says he'll be able to get in but he may not be able to get out of College Park. Expecting 18-24" there.

Good chance he misses the Rutgers visit.

Actually, what each school is doing is screwing with Lindsey Scott Jr.

No, they're simply raging recruiting wars. It happens. We'd be tickled pink to land him, but it's a long shot. A very long shot.
