That dream team of Louisiana recruiters could become considerably stronger if Brian Kelly completes his inaugural LSU on-field coaching staff by hiring wide receiver coach Cortez Hankton of Georgia. We mentioned yesterday that all signs point to that happenings soon, and FootballScoop apparently agrees. John Brice writes that Hankton is LSU’s top target for the position.
All of the coaches mentioned above would give LSU an outstanding team for recruiting Louisiana, but what about out-of-state recruiting? Well, Kelly seems to have his bases covered there too. Defensive Assistant Kerry Cooks and Defensive Line Coach Jamar Cain have Texas connections, Defensive Coordinator Matt House can handle the southeast, and Special Teams Coordinator Brian Polian is big on the West Coast. I really like the way this is shaping up.
