LSU has long been one of the country’s top destinations for college football recruits. The Tigers’ 2014 class was ranked No. 2 in the country by Rivals.com, their 2013 class was No. 6, their 2012 class was No. 18…the list could go on and on.
But Les Miles and his LSU program are getting some help on the recruiting trail, and it’s unclear whether they asked for it or not. In a recent interview with Myron Smothers of LSU Tiger TV, Torrence Hatch, better known by his stage name, Lil Boosie, makes a pitch to middle school and high school players to come play for the Tigers.
Some of the best quotes from his pitch:
” I want to talk to all the kids in high schools—all the stars. Go on and come to Baton Rouge, man. Go on and put on that yellow jersey, man.”
“We need to bring back the No. 1 players and get it back together, man.”
As mentioned previously, LSU is usually pretty successful in snagging top recruits. How much help could the Tigers and Miles really need? Well, Alabama’s 2014 class was ranked No. 1 by Rivals.com, so maybe Lil Boosie can make a difference, after all.
