#AskLoogs: Bama vs. LSU recruiting

Yes. This is a very simple, black-and-white answer that can be applied not only to Alabama, but also to LSU. It comes down to this -- whoever signs the bulk of remaining top uncommitted 2014 prospects from Louisiana, particularly RB Leonard Fournette and OT Cameron Robinson, will end up with the No. 1 class. I don’t know if there has ever been a time in the past where we could say in any given month who will have the No. 1 class come February, but this is as concrete as it gets. I would go so far as to say I’d be absolutely shocked if it wasn’t Alabama or LSU based on those Louisiana kids. With that being said, if I had to give an early nod, I would lean toward LSU because it is the in-state school and it is difficult for other schools to beat LSU on in-state kids. But the one school that has had some success doing so is Alabama.
