Three-Point Stance: Rapid LSU, Surprise Oklahoma, Big 12 QBs

LSU’s Speedy Recruiting Success

LSU football is renowned for recruiting elite prospects with speed being a common attribute among their players. The Tigers have consistently showcased their fast players, evident in the recent season with star receivers Malik Nabers and Brian Thomas Jr. both running sub 4.4-second 40-yard dashes. This trend of speed is set to continue in the coming seasons with the addition of talented recruits.

Powerhouse program Duncanville has provided LSU with a duo of future Tigers who boast exceptional speed. Running back signee Caden Durham clocked a blazing 10.35 in the 100 meters, while five-star wide receiver commit Dakorien Moore was close behind with a 10.43. Additionally, linebacker Charles Ross from Houston North Shore displayed his speed with a time of 10.48 at over 200 pounds, making his feat even more remarkable.

The highlight of the group is wide receiver Jelani Watkins from Humble Atascocita, who currently leads the nation with a 10.22 record in the 100 meters. This impressive display of speed bodes well for LSU’s future success on the field.

Exciting Quarterback Prospect in Grady Adamson

Among the highly anticipated prospects in the 2025 class is Edmond Deer Creek’s three-star quarterback Grady Adamson. With impressive stats from his junior season, including 2,565 passing yards, 28 touchdowns, and only four interceptions, Adamson has garnered attention from college programs.

Adamson’s playing style reflects his toughness, ability to extend plays, and make accurate throws on the run. Standing at 6-foot-2 and weighing 215 pounds, he possesses the qualities of a prototypical passer. His strong arm, field vision, and fearless approach to throwing make him a promising prospect for larger programs.

With offers from schools like Georgia Tech, BYU, Syracuse, Tulsa, and UNLV, Adamson’s talent and potential could propel him to a successful collegiate career.
