Editor's note: This week and next, we will break down each of LSU's position groups as we prepare for the Tigers to open preseason practice in early August. We conclude our look at the offense today with the offensive line.
BATON ROUGE, La. -- For most LSU fans, there is only one spring storyline that matters: the quarterback battle between Anthony Jennings and Brandon Harris. Indeed, the competition between junior Jennings (1,611 passing yards, 11 TDs, 7 INTs in 2014) and sophomore Harris (452 yards, 6 TDs, 2 INTs) might determine whether the Tigers re-emerge as legitimate contenders in the SEC West or remain in the middle of the pack like last season's 8-5 club.
With three new assistant coaches and four early enrollees in the fold, LSU is scheduled to open spring practice on Saturday. As is the case each spring, there are a number of positions that are up for the grabs for the Tigers.
Editor's note: This week, we'll take a quick look at each of LSU's position groups as the Tigers prepare to open preseason practice next week. Up next is the offensive line. OFFENSIVE LINE Returning starters: LT La'el Collins (12 starts in 2013), LG Vadal Alexander (13 starts), C Elliott Porter (12 starts), RT Jerald Hawkins (13 starts).
BATON ROUGE, La. -- We're a week away from the start of preseason practice for the LSU Tigers. Since several open spots on the depth chart make this arguably the most important freshman class in Les Miles' decade as the Tigers' coach, we thought it might be a good time to offer a refresher on Miles' thoughts about each signee once they officially became Tigers on national signing day.
BATON ROUGE, La. -- Les Miles has never been afraid to play a true freshman -- LSU's sports information department reports that the Tigers have played 87 first-year freshmen in Miles' nine seasons -- but it has become one of the program's trademarks only in recent years.
BATON ROUGE, La. -- We're closing in on the start of spring practice at LSU, so this week let's take a look at five position battles worth watching this spring. We covered the wide receivers, defensive tackles, quarterbacks and safeties in the first four installments.
BATON ROUGE, La. -- Five years from now, maybe sooner, we'll be able to accurately assess the signing class that LSU assembled on Wednesday. Since we like to prematurely keep score, the crop of new Tigers must be judged on two fronts: How it appears today and how it could have been.
BATON ROUGE, La. -- Capitalizing on one of the largest collections of premium in-state talent in recent memory, LSU wrapped up a dramatic national signing day by jumping to second in ESPN's class rankings.
