B.J. Hammond talks LSU

B.J. Hammond, wide receiver from Gadsden (Ala.) City, attended Junior Day this past weekend at LSU. Andrew Bone talked with the elite prospect about the trip.

"I had fun down there," B.J. Hammond said of his visit to Baton Rouge. "It was a pretty fun trip. I went with a couple of my teammates. We went to different things. We saw the facilities. Coach Les Miles gave a speech. We ate pretty good. We did so much down there. It was crazy."

Hammond spent a lot of time with his recruiting coach who is also from Gadsden.

"I spoke with Brick Haley and the new receivers coach [Adam Henry]," he said. "He just came in from the Oakland Raiders. I mostly talked to Brick Haley. I don't really know the LSU coaches really well, but I talked to a lot of the coaches.

"He was saying they need receivers my size. He was excited about me. They told me I have a verbal offer. Coach Haley told me they need me to come on down. I didn't know they were going to a spread offense. They said I fit in perfect with what they want to do."

The 6-foot-3, 210-pound prospect has verbal offers from Alabama, Auburn, LSU, Mississippi State and UAB. He talked more of his interest in the Tigers in the Bayou State.

"I like how crunk LSU is," Hammond said. "The fans are loyal. I like Death Valley a lot. I like the brotherhood of the team. They all love each other. If one person is doing it they are all doing it. It's cool down there. They have a good strength coach. I watched a motivational video about LSU. I liked it."

Hammond will attend Junior Day this weekend at Mississippi State.
