Quinn shows LSU still rules in Louisiana

BATON ROUGE, La. -- A recruiting class that LSU fans are hoping will be historically significant has been coming together too slowly for many in Louisiana.
Before wide receiver Trey Quinn (Lake Charles, La./Barbe) became the highest-ranked member of the 2014 ESPN 300 to commit to LSU on Saturday (Quinn is No. 37 overall and No. 3 among wide receivers), there was much consternation around the state about whether the Tigers would adequately secure what's arguably the most bountiful football prospect harvest the state has ever produced.
Forget finishing with a No. 1 class -- LSU entered this weekend outside the top 10 with a mere 13 commitments.
If anything, the Quinn commitment should relax those concerns, at least a little.
