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.

It's never too early to look ahead to next year. Here are five current prospects in the 2014 class we feel could make their mark in future editions of the Ultimate ESPN 300. RB Leonard Fournette (LSU): It's not just based on the fact that he's the top-rated player in the ESPN 300, but rather the perfect blend of talent, need and fit that awaits him at LSU.
