BATON ROUGE, La. -- Louisiana has four wide receivers in the ESPN 150, so it was a bit of a surprise to see LSU take a commitment Monday from D.J. Chark (Alexandria, La./Alexandria), a receiver who isn't part of the state's big four.

That may lead to some wondering why the Tigers would take him, especially considering that LSU already has a commitment from one relatively lightly-regarded receiver in Tony Upchurch (Pearland, Texas/Glenda Dawson) in a class that has again grown to 10 commitments (LSU had a commitment from junior college receiver D'Haquille Williams, who has since decommitted).


There are a couple of reasons.
