Dave Telep mentioned on FSN's Countdown to Signing Day that both Scottie Reynolds and unsigned Darrel Arthur visited LSU together. LSU's run to the Final Four, along with beating Duke gave John Brady's program a lot of "street cred" among recruits. Seeing Tyrus Thomas skyrocket in the NBA draft won't hurt either.
Of course this is not over yet, LSU does not have them signed/sealed/delivered by any means...

For those who missed the King James classic on FSN, you can still catch it as a rerun on FoxCollegeSports or possibly your local FSN station.
FSN was ecstatic OJ Mayo's team (the D1 Greyhounds) made it to the final. That was the team/player everyone wanted to see. OJ Mayo showed flashes of brilliance, essentially ending the game in the 2nd quarter by leading the charge. Both Mayo and Billy Walker had minor injuries during the game, but nothing serious. Also featured was an interview with Cincy coach Bob Huggins - OOOPS! Kansas State coach Bob Huggins. HuggieBear seemed very refreshed, relaxed and energetic. Also intereviewed was new Cincy coach Mick Cronin, and LeBron's HS coach Dru Joyce. Former NBA star Scott Williams was the expert analyst.
