Miller Safrit/ESPNLSU is working hard to get Garrett Brumfield, but will have to battle Alabama.This is the third in a series of players LSU might target in the 2014 recruiting class. Previously, we looked at wide receivers and tight ends and running backs and quarterbacks.
BATON ROUGE, La. -- In 2011, La'el Collins was rated among the nation's top offensive linemen coming out of Baton Rouge, La.
Currently, he's one of the stars of LSU's offensive line, but possibly not for long. He'll enter his junior season after starting at left guard. With a good junior season -- possibly back at guard and maybe at left tackle -- he'll be the latest Tiger to leave school early for the NFL.
Good thing Louisiana has its next Collins this year.
If Cameron Robinson (West Monroe, La.) isn't the nation's top offensive lineman for the 2014 class, he's on the short list. And he tops LSU's wish list to be the next big-time anchor of the LSU offensive line.
Here are some LSU targets in a year when LSU will likely take three or four linemen.
