Riley's new plans

John Curtis Christian LB Duke Riley changed his plans for this weekend. Get the most current info inside...

Duke Riley was scheduled to visit Ole Miss this weekend and Kentucky during the middle of next week.

That has changed, however.

"I'm going to take a trip to Baton Rouge this weekend," Riley said late Thursday evening. "This is what I want to do. I talked to Coach Frank (Wilson) and he's fighting for me to come in this year (and not as a greyshirt).

"Coach Frank can't fight for me if I don't come to LSU this weekend. He talked to my dad and me, and said he wouldn't have brought Les Miles to my house (last night) if I wasn't an important player."

Riley says he'd still like to visit Ole Miss prior to National Signing Day.

"I'll visit if they still have a spot," he said.

He expects to arrive in Baton Rouge at 5:30 P.M. tomorrow.

"Dillon Gordon will be my host," he said.

Gordon, a true freshman tight end at LSU, was teammates with Riley on last year's John Curtis team.
