Miles Says LSU Filled Its Needs
by Scooter Hobbs
BATON ROUGE — Call it a comeback that kind of fizzled out at the end. LSU, which had improved itself in the recruiting wars’ final days, got another boost early on Wednesday’s national signing day when they landed one of the nation’s top linebackers in Kwon Alexander of Oxford, Ala. But soon after Alexander chose the Tigers over Auburn and Alabama, the Tigers lost one of their top in-state commitments when Shreveport Woodlawn linebacker Torshiro Davis changed his mind and signed with Texas. Davis had been committed to LSU since last year’s national signing day. The rest of the day didn’t get much better as two other uncommitted players LSU had high hopes of landing — junior college wide receiver Cordarrelle Patterson and Oxford, Ala., safety Trae Elston — signed with other SEC schools.
