    A 2023 DE from Indy that is committed to LSU.

    Apparently was offered and on campus today.

    No idea what that means as it relates to the big 3 DE’s on our board.

    S/O to @cdiddy70 for making the thread
    And it feels weird even saying this about a kid that’s so freaking talented, but I wonder if he’s a plan B to the Big 3 DEs. And/or they feel confident about 1 of the 3, and have a strong possibility of getting this kid with them. The 1st step is insane!

    :yow2:

    Sounds like a Jack player to me


    Another IN elite football player, who’s also a good basketball player. We haven’t seen that before:blush:

    tonystarx You're 'bout as messed up as a football bat!

    Seems like the staff typically offers kids committed elsewhere only if they feel there’s a legit chance at flipping them. Add to that he’s now scheduled an official for The Game, is that the vibe around the WHAC?

    Seems like that's a smart objective no? Why waste time on kids you 100% know aren't coming to Columbus? This is the way

    They have to like their chances after he’s willing to decommit from a team that surprisingly won the SECw

    It was just an observation I’ve noticed over time, as opposed to teams like ttun who offer kids they should know they have zero shot at. Bama does it time to time I think just to ruffle feathers around the WHAC. And I’m sure a lot of other programs “waste time” on committed recruits. But kudos for deciphering my riddle of a post.

    Sounds like he wants to be closer to home after the unexpected death of his father earlier this year.

    C/O of 11W:

    If true, then this is a massive win! If Mickens lived in the south, and not in IN, I think his ranking would've been A LOT higher! Like Caden Curry the year before, IN is one of those states where their talent doesn't always get the benefit of the doubt(Pete Warner and Terry McLaurin also come to mind). Mickens in the Jack role, and then have Wilson(will need to bulk up) and/or MU play the JT hands in the dirt role.

    I love the potential here with Mickens and Wilson. pnuts are you thinking we are still on the outside looking in for Keeley? Has that boat sailed for us? Wilson and MU is an unbelievable pull just curious on any last efforts to get that momentum back.

    The thing with Keeley, is the reported Uncle, who has al NIL talks going through him, and has been adamant about Keon getting upfront NIL money(and it's even been rumored that he's been cashing checks through Bama's Red Elephant collective as an advisor). Keon himself may want to go to OSU, but that money is speaking LOUDLY! And best of luck to him

    If OSU were to get 2-3 of Mickens, Wilson and MU, then that arguably a top 3 DL class to go with the DTs we have already! LSU doesn't go to places like IN for DL, so Mickens has to be good. It's a down year for DL in LA this year, and the highest rated one in the state is heading to Auburn. Kelly has been trying to use his midwest and east coast ties for DL.
