Verdon, Purchase, Freyler, Cooper, Surges, Patton, Williams, and Robinson!
Has to be one of the best secondary’s in the league.

Don't forget LSU can pay players (including walk-ons) well more than what a scholarship is worth.
Really hope they fix this with roster size limits, including walk-ons. It's crappy but how else do you prevent a team like LSU from just paying their walk-ons the price of tuition plus x amount as NIL? Teams would end up hoarding players that would otherwise play at other schools.

Problem is all the fixing ( through the courts and such) actually causes the problems.

Yeah, scholarship limits don't exist for places with large NIL budgets. I know everyone told me I was wrong last year but it's happening. If those teams are at 85 and want a guy, that's not stopping them. An in state guy getting reimbursed for tuition is peanuts to them.

As soon as NIL became legal, I knew that was going happen. If you have money to spend, it's just a logical move.

Good add, but to anyone thinking we have an immediate starter here, remember this guy barely saw snaps on a bad LSU defense. He's great depth for this year and hopefully a starter in the future as he develops.

Do you know of anyone thinking that he’s an immediate starter?

Agree. Would also be interesting to know—how many from his impressive HS offer list circled back to sign him now?
For curiosity sake or for validation of his skillset? I imagine he's raw and needs to be more physical but that's normal for his age. If Campbell used the last scholarship on him I imagine he has value to offer.

Simply curiosity. So many big programs were after him out of HS, just wondered how much competition CMC had this time around.

Nothing wrong with being optimistic that Robinson can play significant snaps. But the staff mentioned this winter cornerback depth is a position of need. Recruiting is a #'s game and roster composition is a #'s game. The Clones had 4 db's transfer out, so adding a couple db's makes sense.

Quick guys are nice to have for special teams at a minimum.

Yeah. CB#1. He beat everyone out without setting foot on campus.
If the only information I had to go on was the last time we saw the team play in Memphis, I'd think most people could show up and immediately be CB1.
