LSU camp: Day 3 breakdown

7/18/2012

Tuesday was easily the hottest day of LSU's camp marathon this July.

Many of the same faces that have starred since Saturday were still in attendance, although several big names concluded their trips after a lengthy visit. Rashard Robinson was chief among them, as he took off back to Florida after a two-day workout and campus visit with the Tigers.

By this point in the camp -- with just a half day remaining Wednesday -- it's safe to say that most of LSU's out of state visitors had left town. One of the out-of-towners who took off was Damon Webb (Detroit, Mich./Cass Tech), but he hung around long enough to pick up a scholarship offer from Les Miles. More on that here.

With that in mind, most of Wednesday's focus was on in-state guys -- both commits and prospects. Jeremy Cutrer (Kentwood, La./Jewel Sumner) made a late showing at camp, arriving after the rest of his fellow commits had been in town for two or three days. Cutrer worked out for LSU coaches and posted a vertical leap of 35 inches. His individual work looked pretty good, but he ran into some steep competition in group workouts.

In 1-on-1 passing drills, LSU defensive backs coach Corey Raymond singled the late-comer out and had him work out several times at cornerback against the speedy wide receivers in attendance. Corner isn't Cutrer's natural position, and it showed. He lost his footing and was beaten several times over -- most notably by Trey Quinn (Lake Charles, La./Barbe), who beat the LSU commit twice on the same route.

Plenty has been said about Trey Quinn this week, so I'll refrain from overdoing it. But he has been one of the standouts of this camp since Sunday afternoon. Plenty of people expect the two-sport star (football along with baseball) will get an LSU offer when he leaves camp Wednesday. Time will tell.

Quinn hasn't heard from LSU yet, but another passing threat received an offer Tuesday. Jacory Washington (Westlake, La./Westlake), a 2014 tight end, confirmed that he received an offer Tuesday afternoon.

Laurence Jones and Kendell Beckwith both made good on their confirmations that they'd be in camp Tuesday. Beckwith worked out in the morning session only, before departing in the afternoon. I caught up with him briefly before 7 on 7 drills began, and he was ready to get after it.

Jones stayed the entire day, and he continued to excel at all activities. Months ahead of his junior season, he is every bit of 6-foot-2, 208 pounds, and it shows when he goes up against other high schoolers.
