BATON ROUGE, La. -- When Luke Muncie was in high school at suburban Houston power Klein Oak, he was a tall, rangy defensive back who was rated by many scouting services as a future college safety although he had a body type that might eventually allow him to become a linebacker.

"More people recruited me as a safety than as a linebacker," said Muncie, who knew which position would be best for his future. "I knew receivers were going to be faster [in college] and I'm not going to lie, I didn't feel like I had the best coverage skills in the world."

Now a starter for LSU at strongside linebacker, listed at a linebacker-looking 6-foot-2, 220 pounds (he has recently lost weight because of an illness), Muncie showed during the Tigers' 12-10 win Saturday over Auburn that he actually has some coverage skills.
