My visit to LSU this past week was really fun and it was a blast. I flew up there and was able to meet the coaches and see the campus. Charles Scott showed me everything, from the football stuff to the dorms and all the spots.
I was able to meet Coach Porter, the running backs coach, for like 20 minutes. I also got to speak to Les Miles. He came up to me and was like Lonnie, give me your hands. He took my hands and said I am the guy they want. That was really cool to hear that.
LSU's academic center is the best I have ever seen. I've been to a lot of schools and it is the nicest. I got to see the campus, and it is nice. I saw how the classes, restaurants and places to eat are really close together and convenient. I saw the indoor practice facility, which was cool.
Overall it was a great visit. The food was good, and it was pretty much more than I expected. I am going to take an official there when they play Georgia. They're right there now with Florida State. I was just there for so long and had a good time. FSU is #1 and LSU #2, and there is a difference between them and the rest of the schools.
I want to give a special shout-out to 2 of my hostesses. Johanna Trees and Sherry Magnum were my main hostesses, and they are the head ones at LSU. They heard I was doing this diary and said how the coaches and everyone get recognized, but they don't. I told them I'd give them a special shout here in my diary.
I am going to FSU for their spring game this weekend, and I probably will line up my official visit when they play Florida in November. I am excited to get back there and check out the team.
