Possibly. However, LSU’s depth chart at RB might help the Tigers more. They are losing Alfred Blue, Kenny Hilliard is a junior and Jeremy Hill, well, who knows what will happen with him. Alabama will still have Yeldon for at least one more year, plus Altee Tenpenny, Derrick Henry, Alvin Kamara, Tyren Jones and Kenyon Drake are all freshman and sophomores. This illustrious group of Louisiana prospects is a tight knit group, they all know each other and speak regularly, but that rarely guarantees any definitive outcome. Right now, Alabama is the only true predator to the LSU program for in-state kids and I would be willing to bet they would consider it a win to lure three or four more Louisiana kids in lieu of Fournette if it came down to it, especially if one of them is WR Malachi Dupre. Another way to make an impression is if Alabama can meet expectations and play for a third straight national title. Don’t kid yourself though, those Bama coaches will have Cam constantly working Fournette until the end.
