Two-way threat for LSU 

December, 10, 2007
LSU picked up a significant in-state commitment over the weekend with versatile ESPN 150 prospect Chase Clement (Thibodaux, La./White Catholic). Perhaps one of the better overall two-way players in the country, Les Miles' most difficult job in Baton Rouge may be where to place this outstanding athlete who chose the Tigers over Alabama and Tulane.

ESPN's No. 9-rated tight end prospect possesses the physical tools to enter camp on either side of the ball next fall and excel during his career at LSU. Clement passes the eye test with his tall, well-proportioned frame and the room for potential bulk and growth. A large target with great hands as a pass-catching tight end, he snags the ball smoothly in stride and utilizes his size well shielding defenders and making the difficult grab in traffic. A load to bring down with his size and competitive speed after the catch, Clement also displays solid in-line blocker skills and should only improve in that facet as he gets stronger.
