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 secondary.
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.
BATON ROUGE, La. -- LSU's 2014 recruiting class was important, not just because of the significant talent infusion that it provided, but also because of the numerous holes that the Tigers needed to fill.

Terrence Magee and the defense were the stars of LSU's 41-3 win against Kentucky on Saturday, but several of the Tigers' true freshmen still played key roles in the victory. Here is a recap of some of their performances: S Jamal Adams What he did: Statistics don't adequately explain the ways Adams impacts a game, but he had his best statistical performance against Kentucky.
Brandon Harris used words like "terrible" and "nightmare" when describing his first career start against Auburn on Saturday, but those descriptions actually applied to his entire team's performance in a 41-7 defeat.
