Here are the highlights from the LSU baseball/football chat with Advocate sportswriter Ross Dellenger on Thursday:

On players to watch...

Dellenger: True. (Jamal) Adams exploded onto the scene around mid-season last year. Davon Godchaux is another to watch, and, maybe, Kevin Toliver II at cornerback.

On spring football...

Dellenger: Spring has to be taken with a grain of salt. Spring is more of an evaluation time for coaches instead of making concrete decisions on spots. Remember, LSU's top-10 recruiting class will show up in the fall. Just four of them will participate in spring.

All of that said, I'm watching the offensive line this spring. That's the big position to watch. LSU loses to starters and there could be shifting going on (with Jerald Hawkins to LT and Vadal possibly to RT).

On LSU quarterback Brandon Harris...

Dellenger: I think you'll see Brandon Harris play more than he did last season - I really do believe that. Everyone knows he's talented. Now, how much is he working in the film room over the off-season? I have no idea, but that may be the determining factor in his playing time.

On LSU pitching...

Dellenger: Jared Poche will get the nod against Houston. At least that's what Mainieri is planning.

The bullpen has performed really well outside of Kyle Bouman, who has struggled. We'll see just how good the pen is over the this nine-game in 11 days stretch.

On LSU defensive backs coach Corey Raymond and offensive line coach Jeff Grimes being overlooked as recruiters...

Dellenger: Not exactly. Grimes was praised by Wilson and Les Miles. We included all of that in our stories from signing day. He had a great OL signing class in 2015. I think Raymond is known by most as a good and persistent recruiter. We wrote about him in the below story. He stayed on Kevin Toliver II throughout the recruiting process.
