The War Room- 2021 recruiting reset
War Room*** Four-star safety Derrick Davis of Monroeville (Pa.) Gateway High School is set to announce his verbal commitment tomorrow at approximately 3pm CST. The assumption going into this week after he visited Baton Rouge last weekend was that he was Penn State bound, especially after Sage Ryan committed to LSU.Well, I put in a prediction for LSU in the chat last night and on facebook live after talking to my source early evening last night.LSU wants more safety help and they are looking to rebuild that position in a hurry. *** With Davis tomorrow, that would give LSU 22 commitments for the class of 2021. Everyone knows there's more names on the board than there are spots. LSU will sign a full class of 25 for this year. Whether that's 24 with one spot held back for a grad transfer remains to be seen but they will have a full class of 25.Obviously, there's going to be some movement in the class here in the coming weeks. That's a sensitive situation, so i'm not going to speculate.There are still many LSU fans out there who think what LSU offered to the NCAA is currently accepted and it affects the class. No, it is not in effect yet and it only has to do with the 85 roster. Not the individual classes.Also, I'm told that LSU has no idea right now as to when they'll get word from the NCAA on whether they accept the self-imposed sanctions that they offered up. *** The biggest need in this class the rest of the way is offensive linemen. I still have Tristan Leigh and Savion Byrd in the probable category to LSU. There's also some possibilities of grad transfers that could be visited in the spring if LSU is under.*** Running backs. Still recruiting several but can also take it to the house with just Corey Kiner if they don't get who they want. They are still after Auburn commit Armoni Goodwin and taking a strong look at Notre Dame commit Logan Diggs of Rummel.*** LSU is still trying to make things happen with big Texas DE Shemar Turner of Desoto, Texas. He's in the 275-pound range which is what LSU under Bo Pelini is looking for. LSU has had success at that school. Ed Ingram, Evan Washington and Jalen Mills. A&M folks seem confident, but Alabama, Georgia, Texas and others also involved. Would be huge to land Turner to go along with Saivion Jones and Landon Jackson.*** Nothing new on 5-star defensive lineman Maason Smith. He's still a probable to LSU and I hope to have something coverage wise on him in the coming few weeks.*** Five-star defensive end Korey Foreman is still a possibility for LSU but like we've been saying for a while they are battling Georgia. I'm also told that Arizona State could be getting in there and making things interesting. *** Walker wide receiver Brian Thomas is sticking in the probable category. After getting Jack Bech's commitment I know many thought that meant Thomas was lost either because of why they went after Bech or just from a numbers crunch. No, LSU is still solidly after Thomas. I'm here all weekend to answer your questions. I feel like i'm missing something in this reset so I might come back and add more.

All Day LSU football and recruiting chat, LIVE
Let's get started. Lots to discuss. Sage Ryan and his Saturday announcementThis weekends unofficial visit to Baton Rouge and campus by high four-star safety Derrick Davis of Monroeville (Pa.) Gateway has been discussed for several days. Been hoping to get him for an interview but no luck yet. He's scheduled to announce his college choice on Nov. 7. He's considered one of the nation's top-3 safeties nationally. Bill Busch has been on him for a long time and Busch has shown to be arguably the LSU staffs best recruiter on elite kids out-of-state.I'm told that it's Penn State right now with Ohio State second. That Davis and his family are doing their due dillegence before making a decision but that it would be a major upset if he ended up anywhere but Penn St. This could very well be a situation where it's hard to make the big move without official visits and the full royal treatment.

National Average Rating

The National Average Rating is a proprietary formula that calculates an industry-wide aggregate rating for each recruiting prospect. The formula includes publicly listed grades, scores, ratings and rankings by national recruiting services, along with a rating. Combining the data provides a rating for each prospect, which is then normalized to fit the Rating 100-point scale.

The intent of this rating is to provide readers with a comprehensive snapshot of how individual prospects rank nationally.

Staff Predictions

The predictions represent which school each staff member believes will ultimately sign the recruit, and the confidence meter represents his level of certainty in that outcome.

Example #1

If the predicted school is LSU and confidence is set to “High”, then the staff member is saying “I believe that this recruit will ultimately sign with LSU and I feel very certain about that.”

Example #2

If the predicted school is “Alabama” and confidence is set to “Low,” then the staff member is saying “I believe that this recruit will ultimately sign with Alabama, but I’m not very certain about that.”
