The 6-2, 238-pound prospect says LSU is like "being at home" to him since he has family from Louisiana. Per AL.com:
quote:

LSU: "Really, (former defensive coordinator) Coach (Kevin) Steele (now at Auburn) was at LSU and that's when I really started liking LSU. My family is from Louisiana so if I went to LSU, it would be like being at home for me. My mom was born two and a half hours from Baton Rouge in Winnsboro, Louisiana, LSU's always been special to me since Coach Steele was there. When (new defensive coordinator) Coach (Dave) Aranda came, I told him I hadn't been getting as much love since Coach Steele left and he flipped the switch immediately. They've been recruiting me just as hard as Auburn and Michigan. I talk to Coach Aranda almost every day now. Everything's been good with them and I can't wait to get there next weekend and visit."
He also like the idea of playing for new defensive coordinator Dave Aranda and says he wants to see what LSU can offer him academically during his next visit to campus. Per SECCountry.com:
quote:

“He always has a top defense,” he added, “and he’s someone I definitely want to play for.”

“I want to see the stuff outside of football,” the 6-foot-2, 238-pound prospect said. “When I visited (in October 2015), it was more about football. I want to see what they offer academically and would I be happy going to school there. If I got hurt, would I just be happy going to school there. That’s the biggest thing I’m looking at when I visit those schools.”

He's a Steele recruit. Sounds like a great kid and would love to have in at LSU, but in the end, he is an Auburn lock. He had waaay too much praise for Steele to think otherwise.

Agreed. Auburn is the team to beat for his talents.
