Top 100 LB Kwon Alexander picks LSU

One of the nation's top linebackers has chosen to go spurn an offer from his home state at Auburn and sign with LSU.

Oxford (Ala.) blue-chip linebacker Kwon Alexander announced he will sign with the Bayou Bengals despite a long recruitment from their SEC West rivals on the Plains. A 6'3", 215-pound prospect who entered his senior season as one of the nation's top handful of recruits before an ACL injury, Alexander still finished at No. 96 overall in the Maxpreps top 100 and the No. 4 outside linebacker.

Tom Lemming writes about Alexander's ability:

Here's a defender who can run with the backs. He impresses you with his overall game, makes plays from sideline to sideline, is an effective pass rusher and also does an outstanding job when dropping back into the passing lanes. The No. 1 defensive player in Alabama.

Alexander also sported offers from Alabama, Florida and Florida State.

Alexander is LSU's second big defensive addition of the day following safety Corey Thompson's late switch from Texas A&M. The Tigers now have 23 commitments and could move up in the CBS Sports National Signing Day top 25.

Would have liked for him to go to Alabama, but considering he would have probably redshirted in the least it was a smart pick for him.      Kind of still hate to see it, because I know he really wanted to play at Alabama.

Can't get them all.   

But LSU is a good defensive school.     And it's funny that he dissed Auburn.

Good Luck to ya Kwon.

Roll Tide!

Look dbag, you know as well I do our fan base is NEVER satisfied and ALWAYS whinning about something. LSU and Les Miles had a great year, but blew the national championship game. That's life, it sucks somedays. Then EVERYONE was calling in Baton Rouge sportstalk radio blaming Les Miles for Gunner jumping ship.  My point is who knows, who cares, let's get on with OUR own business and look forward to next season.

whinny??  like a horse??


or whiny like your sorry self!


Gunner was not a real option for LSU  when babies need to be close to mom's teat it pays for them to stay close to the teat

as for Collins, he followed his girl friend to Bama.  That's good for him.  Nose ring anyone???


Alexander saw LSU graduate all three starting LB's

can he start as a freshman?  I don't know but if I thought I could LSU is a nice place to try...

starting DL will be very good

starting DB's too!

why not try a program that is reloading...
