He brings a skill set unrivaled by any across the country that should allow him to make an immediate impact for the Tigers. If he gets in and improves his pass-blocking, stays healthy and works his way into the starting role early in the season, he could do marvelous things his freshman year at LSU.” – NOLA.com
