"They said I'm the number one cornerback on their board. I'm really surprised, because I hadn't heard much from them lately."
Which school might offer next?
There's been talk that Batiste might be the only Louisiana corner who will garner an LSU offer.
"That would be cool," he said. "LSU says they're only going to offer four DBs. I know they offered (Dutchtown safety) Landon (Collins). If they offer me, I would really look into it.
"I'm in position to be a December grad, so I will be able to start college early."
Last weekend, Batiste attended Southern Miss' Junior Day and there's a possibility he'll go to a similar event at Memphis this weekend.
