Why they want him: After LSU's huge success in the NFL draft along its defensive line, the Tigers will want to build off that by landing the state's -- and one of the nation's -- best defensive line prospects. Willis brings versatility, with the chance to play tackle or end.
Who else wants him: Like many players on LSU's list, Willis has a who's who of suitors with Florida, Texas and Texas A&M leading the way.
Why they want him: In a deep class of receivers, Quinn is the most proven performer, coming out of a wide-open offense where he's threatening to become the nation's all-time leading high school receiver. In a program that takes pride in getting players ready to play quickly, the adjustment won't be hard for the seasoned and talented Quinn.
Who else wants him: Clemson seems to have some momentum lately and watch out for Oklahoma State, where his quarterback and good friend, Kennon Fontenot, has committed to play baseball.
Odds they get him: 60 percent
5. RB Leonard Fournette (New Orleans/St. Augustine) 6-foot-1, 232 pounds ESPN Rank: No. 1
Why they want him: Fournette would be the big name in any recruiting class, but LSU, which did not take a running back in the 2013 class, seems to have a lot riding on successfully landing the local product.
Who else wants him: Everybody. But Alabama, Florida State, USC and Texas are among the big-name programs making a push.
Why they want him: The top offensive lineman in the country is on everybody's wish list, but LSU loves the notion of the nation's top running back (Fournette) running behind the top offensive lineman, both from in state.
Who else wants them: Everybody would love to have Robinson, but it's looking more and more like an LSU-Alabama battle.
Odds they get him: 55 percent. Give LSU a slight edge based on home-state advantage.
Why they want him: LSU covets safeties who can cover like corners, and Jones epitomizes that trait. He has the size to be a physical, LaRon Landry-type presence, but he can cover slot receivers as well.
Who else wants him: Like with Robinson, the Jones battle is shaping up to be an LSU-Alabama war.
Why they want him: Harris possesses a rifle arm and good running ability, making him the perfect fit for the dual-threat quarterback LSU is looking for. No longer are dual-threat QBs expected to simply create with their legs. They need to be able to throw like a traditional pocket passer, and Harris has certainly proved he can.
Who else wants him: Harris planned on visiting six schools before his July 18 decision date, including Ohio State, Alabama, Baylor, Auburn and Ole Miss.
Odds they get him: 55 percent
9. ATH Speedy Noil (New Orleans/Karr) 6-0, 176 ESPN 150 Rank: No. 8
Why they want him: Perhaps the most electric player in the country, Noil could make a huge impact as a slot receiver and kick returner.
Who else wants him: Texas A&M, USC and Florida were the last top three he tweeted, but with his strong ties to LSU, don't rule out the Tigers.
Why they want him: In the spread era, LSU has been in a defensive mission to negate its advantages by recruiting tons of players who can cover. Few do it better than Jackson and few programs develop cover corners better than LSU.
Who else wants him: USC, Florida, Florida State, Miami, Michigan, Notre Dame, Oregon and UCLA lead the list of his suitors.
