Question of a Day: Friday, Feb. 9

It’s no tip that LSU missed out on a tip aim for National Signing Day. The Tigers also didn’t get their backup devise for Patrick Surtain Jr. during cornerback, withdrawal them thinner during a position than creatively anticipated.

But we’re here to spin lemons into lemonade.

You’ve substantially beheld that LSU now has a bevy of options during far-reaching receiver. And proof dictates that one of those guys could be converted into a cornerback. After all, LSU did a same thing in retreat with Russell Gage Jr. behind when it had too many corners and not adequate receivers. Logic dictates something identical can be finished now.

To answer Carter’s question, yes. But that doesn’t indispensably meant LSU will be converting any receivers into cornerbacks. There are viable options within a delegate itself.

Signee Kelvin Joseph was approaching to be a safety, though it’s transparent that his best trail to a margin is during corner. He played both in high school. Senior Ed Paris is another tweener who competence be some-more useful during dilemma when we cruise that John Battle, Eric Monroe, JaCoby Stevens, Grant Delpit and Todd Harris are behind during safety.

But if LSU felt a need to pierce one of a far-reaching receivers to cornerback, a actor best matched to a purpose is signee Jaray Jenkins.

According to SEC Country’s Sam Spiegelman, Jenkins played dilemma during LSU’s stay when he was a high propagandize youth and looked good. Jenkins, a 6-foot-1, 180-pound local of Jena, La., sealed as a receiver, though played both ways in high school.

No one has asked Jenkins to move, and it competence never happen. But in a suppositious situation, he is a LSU far-reaching receiver with a ability set that seems able of assisting a Tigers invulnerability in a pinch.

To see before answers to a Question of a Day, we have we covered.
