Porter plans to be back in Ruston on July 24th. Besides Louisiana Tech, the 6'0" tackle has a few other visits to make. "I plan to visit Southern this weekend and I also want to visit Arkansas," he said. "I like the staff at McNeese and I have friends there. I plan to visit there with several of my teammates."
There are a few things that Porter talked about in his search for a college. "I want to be around positive people," he explained. "I want positive influences around me. I don't want to play with teammates that are just there going through the motions. I'm also looking to play early. I want to play for a defensive line coach with a proven track record. Coach Eggen definitely has that."
Northside opens with Acadiana this season. "It's always a close game," added Porter. "Last year we were up 28-14, but they came back on us." With Tyler Porter up front, don't expect too many teams to come back against Northside in 2010.
