Mitch Sherman has pretty much nailed the rapid changes to the state of recruiting in his story today.
As might be expected of one of college football's preeminent programs, LSU is at the forefront of these types of drastic changes to the game.
The Tigers offered a scholarship to 14-year-old linebacker Dylan Moses last month, making them a hot topic on the nature of modern recruiting. Just in the last few days, Les Miles dismissed Tyrann Mathieu, easily the biggest star on his 2012 roster, from the team.
These are both major developments, and both of them affect the way current high school players look at college recruiting, as Sherman notes in the story. And don't expect this attention to go anywhere. LSU will remain heavily involved in recruiting news and changes to recruiting trends as long as the Tigers are winning games and competing for championships.
