LSU freshman DT Trey Lealaimatafao says he's recovering comfortably following a serious arm injury.

Lealaimatafao punched through a glass window in the Tigers' weight room following a fight with his girlfriend, cutting his arm down to the bone. We're happy to report amputation wasn't deemed necessary. The 6-foot, 300-pound, 17-year-old was a three-star recruit. "Hi everyone, I'm doing well," Lealaimatafao tweeted on Tuesday.

The Times-Picayune reports that LSU freshman DT Trey Lealaimatafao suffered a serious arm injury "when he punched a glass window" in the team's weight room.

The former four-star recruit from Texas had an argument with his girlfriend which caused Lealaimatafao to put his fist through a window. Unfortunately for the LSU prospect, sources say the glass "tore through" his bicep to the point where they could see the bone underneath. Lealaimatafao was brought to a local hospital to be treated, where originally they thought they would have to amputate, however that is not the case anymore.

LSU HC Les Miles said he is in no hurry to name a starting QB.

Sophomore Anthony Jennings took over for injured starter Zach Mettenberger during the final part of the 2013, but he is not locked in for the same gig this year. His top competition might be freshman Brandon Harris. This could be drawn out until LSU kicks off against Wisconsin on August 30.

LSU senior LT La'El Collins stated that he "patterns" his game off of Philadelphia Eagles' T Jason Peters.

"There are a lot of great offensive tackles in the league. I like to try to pattern my game off of Jason Peters. I love him, He's a physical beast, man, and I like guys like that," Collins said Wednesday at SEC Media Days. Like Peters, the 6-foot-5, 315-pound Collins does showcase good athleticism and physical tools. However, if Collins is looking to be an elite tackle at the next level, he would have to improve on his lateral quickness. Our own Josh Norris would not be surprised if Collins ultimately ends up at guard.

Junior DB Jalen Mills is currently not listed on LSU's depth chart.

Mills was suspended on June 11 with the tag of "indefinite" after being arrested on a battery charge. LSU certainly has handled its fair share of suspensions over the years, including allowing the team to vote for Jeremy Hill's eligibility. Mills will likely miss game action, but how much is the question.

2015 Four-star CB recruit Xavier Lewis plans to stay in state and sign with LSU.

Lewis is from Reserve, Louisiana, and offers 5'10/175 lbs size. He received plenty of interest from other SEC, Big 12 and Pac-12 programs. LSU recently suspended top cornerback Jalen Mills due to an off-field issue, but Lewis will not be able to contribute until 2015, at the earliest.

LSU running back coach and recruiting coordinator Frank Wilson was named college football's best recruiter by NFL.com.

Wilson edged out ace recruiters from SEC rivals Alabama, Ole Miss, Texas A&M, Georgia, Auburn and Tennessee. "Wilson holds the title of the Tigers' recruiting coordinator and is a big reason why Les Miles' program has become a must-stop for NFL scouts the past few years (and years to come)," wrote NFL.com's Bryan Fischer. "Wilson is highly regarded for his work in-state, especially his native New Orleans, and comes off a recruiting cycle where he fended off every school in the country for No. 1 recruit Leonard Fournette. He's been an ace recruiter for Ed Orgeron at Ole Miss, Tennessee under Lane Kiffin and now LSU under Miles."

Mel Kiper of ESPN Insider wrote that LSU junior OG Vadal Alexander is an "overwhelming force in the trenches."

Alexander, who goes 6-foot-6 and 340-plus pounds, blasts wide holes for a talented Tigers' RB corps that just lost Jeremy Hill. ESPN recently ranked Alexander as the SEC's No. 9 overall offensive lineman.

LSU senior LT La'El Collins is expected to increase the $5 million injury insurance policy he used as a junior last year.

The news of his $5 million policy as a junior shows how seriously Collins considered jumping early to the pros. NFL Media analyst Bucky Brooks ranked the 6-foot-5, 315-pounder as the No. 4 OT, writing that he possessed "the athleticism and physical tools to merit first-round consideration," but will have to show "better balance, body control and lateral quickness." Collins recorded 65 knockdown blocks last year.

NFL Media analyst Bucky Brooks believes that LSU junior LT La'El Collins could be a "diamond in the rough."

"The LSU standout flashes big-time potential as an edge blocker, but needs some seasoning to join the conversation as an elite prospect," Brooks wrote. The 6-foot-5, 315-pound junior has the athleticism and physical tools that scouts are looking for in first-round talent, although Brooks mentions that Collins will have to show "better balance, body control and lateral quickness" to convince scouts he can play LT at the next level. Our own Josh Norris would not be surprised if Collins ultimately ends up at guard.

LSU junior DB Jalen Mills' attorney disputed the allegations which led to his client's arrest, saying Mills "was not the person who struck the victim."

"That would be consistent with some of the information I've received," Baton Rouge defense attorney Brent Stockstill told Gannett Wednesday night. He added that another witness says one female hit the victim, not Mills. Mills is currently on an indefinite suspension by LSU.

LSU junior DB Jalen Mills has been indefinitely suspended from the football team after being arrested early Wednesday morning on a battery charge.

According to the report, a woman accused Mills of punching her in the mouth at his apartment complex on May 4, adding "she fell to the pavement and was briefly unconscious." The report notes a witness gave the same timeline of events as the victim. Officials contacted Mills on May 29 regarding the incident, but he was not set to return to Baton Rouge until June 9. When he did not report on June 10, a warrant was issued for his arrest. Mills has been listed as both a safety and cornerback, earning high praise for the latter during the early parts of his career.

LSU junior CB Jalen Mills might not be big enough to play the deep middle in the NFL, hurting a full-time projection to safety, according to NFL.com's Bucky Brooks.

Mills started at safety in the Outback Bowl, which "has scouts intrigued by the prospect of using him as a hybrid defender in nickel packages down the road," believes Brooks. Mills is just 6-foot, 185 pounds, but he is very strong in coverage. "Defensive coaches love players capable of wearing several hats in the secondary because it allows defensive coordinators to be flexible with their respective game plans," Brooks wrote. "Mills is an elite cover corner capable of blanketing receivers in press-man, but his start in the Outback Bowl at safety has scouts intrigued by the prospect of using him as a hybrid defender in nickel packages down the road." Mills was a top-100 recruit coming out of high school a few years ago.

LSU HC Les Miles says his fellow SEC coaches are "unanimously" in favor of an early signing period for high school recruits.

"We aren't there yet," commissioner Mike Slive said. The SEC opposed such a period in previous years, but the change could be decided upon in mid-June. The early signing window "should eliminate the guy who goes up to signing day and changes at the last minute," Miles said. Signing day has traditionally been in early February.

LSU redshirt sophomore Anthony Jennings ranks No. 10 on Bucky Brooks' Quarterback Tracker, above more established prospects like Braxton Miller (Ohio State), Devin Gardner (Michigan), and Taylor Kelly (Arizona State).

"Jennings' inclusion on this list is a little premature based on his limited playing time, but I'm willing to take a chance on an exceptional talent who has shown flashes of brilliance in brief action," Brooks wrote. The 6-foot-2, 205-pound Jennings has a big arm and is "a dynamic athletic [sic] with the speed and quickness to create chaos on the edges." Jennings looks to pass first, but Brooks believes he'll be a multi-threat nightmare. "Cam Cameron's experience coaching Antwaan Randle El at Indiana could help him transform Jennings into one of the most feared playmakers in the SEC," he wrote.
