I don't want to sound like just another arrogant SEC fan, but we've lost a Heisman Trophy winner and a Doak Walker winner from our backfield the last two years and Silas would still be fighting for the third spot. I don't think he'd be any higher than fourth and might be fifth. He would be a solid number 5 in LSU's backfield and probably be no. 3 in the Hogs' rotation.
If USC is fighting that hard to land him, they must be pretty one dimensional on offense.
I saw on Sportscenter that they have 6 running backs. I think 5 had no career carries. You would think one or two of those guys would be good (and maybe another serviceable), especially at USC.
On Alabama: CeCe Jefferson - "It was a bunch of beautiful women..." Reggie Ragland - "oh the females of course..."
RB and DL are their two thinnest and weakest units.....so it makes a lot of sense to go after him.
Also, they lost their top DE yesterday to a torn chest muscle. Out 2-3 months, possibly season. (Devon Kennard).
The big thing to me is that they have to give up a spot for a 4 year player to get him. I think Kiffin is selling USC's soul for a big season (and probably a new contract) this season.
Laney Kiffin basically said exactly that. He stated that they have elite QB, O-Line, and WR play, but need a RB to keep Defenses honest. So ya... you're probably right.
