Editor's note: This week we continue to break down each of LSU's position groups as we prepare for the Tigers to open preseason practice in early August. After examining the offensive positions last week, today we focus on the linebackers.
BATON ROUGE, La. -- One of the leading questions for LSU's spring practice is how the Tigers' defense might function differently with Kevin Steele as defensive coordinator. We probably won't have an answer there until a few weeks into the season -- LSU has no incentive to reveal anything before then -- but here's a small twist.
BATON ROUGE, La. -- LSU's coaching staff had not fully completed its 2015 signing class before 2016 was already front-and-center in the coaches' minds. Only three days after national signing day, LSU will stage its "Boys From the Boot" recruiting weekend where it will host many of the state's up-and-coming prospects -- so getting the state's top talent on campus this weekend became an immediate top priority.

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. - One of the biggest defensive storylines from LSU's spring practices was the position shuffling that took place at linebacker. If you weren't paying close attention at the Tigers' spring game, however, you might not have realized just how much shuffling had taken place.
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.

BATON ROUGE, La. - National signing day isn't always dramatic, but this could be a memorable one at LSU. Between the half-dozen spots still available, the uncommitted heavyweights who are reportedly still considering the Tigers and the players who have already committed to LSU and recently considered other options, Les Miles and his staff have plenty of work to do before the end of the day Wednesday.
