On Wednesday night of last week, LSU head coach Les Miles was fielding calls from passionate fans on his final radio show of the season.
This Wednesday, the sixth-year head coach kicked back his feet alongside recruiting coordinator Frank Wilson in the home of Capitol High offensive lineman Corey White.
White wasn’t alone.
“My mom, dad and little bother were all there, and so was my sister-in-law and nephew,” he said.
“My best friend from next door even came over, but I think that was just because he wanted to meet coach Miles,” he laughed.
Miles and Wilson arrived for the in-home visit just before dinner, staying for a couple of hours of what White described as quality family time.
“We were all having a lot of fun just cutting up,” White said. “I think my mom was sort of nervous before they got there, but right when coach Miles walked in he was really loose, and she relaxed right away.
“It was a blast and probably one of the best nights I’ve had this year. Just having coach Miles and coach Frank around my family in our home was really cool.”
When conversation turned to football, White said that the talk was of championships.
“Coach Miles said this recruiting class we had put together had the ability to win four championships while I was in school,” he said. “I liked that attitude. He said they are moving in the right direction and that all the pieces are almost in place.”
Before leaving Miles and White set up a date for his official visit, which will come in late January.
“Right now it is set for the weekend of January 21st,” White said. “That weekend will be one where a lot of committed guys come to campus to help recruit some of the last few guys who might be on the fence and not ready to commit until Signing Day.”
Needless to say, the 6-foot-4, 280-pounder remains firm to the Tigers.
“I’m with LSU all the way until the end,” White said. “It’s somewhere I’ve always wanted to be.”
