Riddle Likes LSU

2015 quarterback Chris Riddle hails from the state of Virginia, and he likes a certain SEC program that's located in the deep south. Details inside.

Chris Riddle is drawn to the rabid football atmosphere at Tiger Stadium on the campus of LSU.

"I would definitely like to get an offer from LSU," said the young signal-caller. "I like their pro-style offense, and it would be amazing to follow someone like (incoming LSU starting QB Zach Mettenberger).

"I like the type of offense LSU runs and how much they win. It's crazy down there at their stadium, and it easily translates to TV."

Riddle also likes Miami ("the U," he said), Boston College, USC, Syracuse and Florida.

"I really like everyone who shows interest in me," he said. "Last year I was behind (Stanford commit) Ryan Burns at Stone Bridge (Ashburn, Va.), and now I go to Tuscarora High School (Leesburg, Va.).

"I haven't officially been named the starter yet for this season, but I have the edge. I did pretty good at the Ultimate 100 in Atlanta - and got invited to the National Underclassmen Combine Prospect Camp this month in Oklahoma (Norman).

"At the Ultimate 100, the coaches told me I did a good job in the 7-on-7. They said they were impressed with my arm strength, accuracy and footwork. They said I see the field and read defenses well."

Riddle has drawn praise from talent evaluators in the south for his efforts at camps and combines.

He hopes to camp at LSU next summer.
