Interest growing for LSU commitment

Gonzales-East Ascension defensive tackle Glenn Dorsey committed to LSU nearly three months ago and now he can focus on other things as he heads into his senior year.<br><br> "It's a relief to have it over with," Dorsey told Tiger Rag. "That is something I don't have to worry about now." <br><br> Is he happy with his early commitment?

"As of right now I am," Dorsey said. "I don't know if that will change or not, but right now I'm pretty happy with it."

College coaches continue to call in an effort to pull Dorsey away from the Tigers, and he has gotten a lot of interest from some of the country's top programs since he pledge to Nick Saban back in March.

"I have offers from Alabama, Oklahoma State and Michigan State," said Dorsey. "I'm getting a lot of letters from Oklahoma, Auburn, Michigan and a lot of other schools."

The question now is will he honor that early commitment?

"Part of me kind of wants to see what is out there outside the state, but another part of me wants to just have it over with," said Dorsey. "I don't know. But something real enticing would have to come along for me to change my mind."

Proximity to the LSU campus was a big reason Dorsey pulled the trigger early but he also likes what he sees with the Tigers' program.

"LSU is only 30 minutes away from home and my family could watch me play," he said. "They have a good program that is coming up and I like coach Saban and coach (Jimbo) Fisher."

Most prospects are spending their summer traveling to camps all over but Dorsey is staying put so he can focus on his academics.

"I'm currently in summer school so I don't know if that is going to allow me to go to any camps," he said. "It's kind of hard to tell."

Something else Dorsey is working on his conditioning because he has gone from 280 pounds to 293 since his junior season came to an end. But that additional weight may not be a bad thing.

"It's good weight because I don't look 293," he said. "I still find myself being able to move like I used to be able to. I'm trying to work hard and get stronger in the weight room."
