While the news concerning LSU was tough Tuesday, it was not all bad.
Mammoth offensive tackle Derek Edinburgh of Edna Karr has verbally committed to the Tigers and Les Miles for the Class of 2012.
The 6'8, 320 pounder chose LSU over Colorado and Mississippi State.
Edinburgh earned first-team All-State honors as a junior, leading Karr to a 4A state championship game appearance against Franklinton.
"He is very athletic for a man his size. He has great footwork. He is a great pass blocker and a good run blocker. He needs to work on being more flexible but that will come. He has only been playing football for three years. LSU was after him for quite some time," said Edna Karr coach Jabbar Juluke.
Former O. Perry Walker head coach and West Banker Frank Wilson recruited Edinburgh to LSU.
Edinburgh is the 16th commitment to LSU's class of 2012.
