Whoever labeled summer as a dead period for sports clearly didn't follow recruiting.
Only last week we saw many of the top recruits in the nation descend on The Opening in Oregon. The road trip will continue for quite a few this weekend, as LSU's second and final recruiting camp of the summer is set to begin this Sunday and run until July 18. While it won't draw quite as large a talent pool as a national event like The Opening, expect there to be quite an impressive guest list when the Tigers' attendees get to Baton Rouge.
The camp comes at just the right time, too. It's been a whopping 10 days since the Tigers picked up their most recent commitment in defensive end Lewis Neal (Wilson, N.C./James B. Hunt) and almost two weeks since tight end DeSean Smith (Lake Charles, La./Barbe) added his name to the class. Considering the break neck speed at which LSU has been picking up commitments since May (11 since May 16), that feels like quite a wait.
