While visiting LSU this weekend, offensive lineman Cole Smith from Pontotoc, MS received an offer from the coaching staff and committed on the spot. Per

He received his offer from LSU and immediately committed.

"I love it down here," Smith said Saturday evening. "The facilities are phenomenal and the coaches are awesome."

LSU envisions Smith as a center at the collegiate level.

The 6-4, 275-pound lineman from Pontotoc HS chose LSU over offers from Oregon, Tulane, Southern Miss, Louisiana-Lafayette, Louisiana-Monroe, and others.

He is LSU's 10th verbal commit for the class of 2018.

Welcome Cole. Don't worry about star rankings. That will come later. Coach O and staff only offer quality players, and I know they have a strength and conditioning plan that will benefit Cole as well. That's the way Tigers!

Hope he sticks and doesn't pull a "Matt Womack" (From Hernando Mississippi) at the last minute and switch to Alabama. We need Centers badly?

This guy is smart. If Womack's brains were dynamite he couldnt blow his nose.
