Youth may not be wasted on the young at LSU

Posted: Updated:
BATON ROUGE, La - At LSU, plenty of outsiders are expecting a rebuilding year.  So many new faces, especially at key positions, including quarterback.  But the editor and publisher of Louisiana Football Magazine, Lee Brecheen, a regular contributor to Friday Football Fever, looks at the incoming talent and its commitment to getting better and is not seeing youth being wasted on the young.

"I look at the history of LSU and a lot of college teams, if you have enough, a lot of committed kids and they do, I think they had the highest ration of kids pass their physicals and training, kids report back this past month, it was the highest percentage in like ten years.  And that's a good gauge to say these kids are hungry, they're young, they don't have the star image by their names yet and those teams usually play harder and want it more and so, I believe this team can really shock some people because everybody goes off the older team that usually disappoints with the big predictions."

With incoming freshmen like former Parkway quarterback Brandon Harris, running back Leonard Fournette and wide receiver Malachi Dupre. LSU has a lot of young talent with opportunity to make names for themselves.
