RB SPENCER WARE JUNIOR
Tied for team-high nine touchdowns in 2011
The LSU coaching staff has great expectations for Ware, a 5' 11" 223-pounder who started 10 games in 2011 and rushed for 700 yards. With LSU's improved passing attack, Ware won't face so many eight- and nine-man fronts, which should translate into a big year for the former high school quarterback from Cincinnati.
LB KWON ALEXANDER FRESHMAN
Despite high school knee injury, ready to step right in
It's not often that a coveted recruit from Alabama spurns the Crimson Tide and Auburn, but that's what Alexander did by signing with LSU. The 6' 2", 220-pound Alexander is speedy—he recently ran the 40 in 4.51 seconds.
