Emanuel McGirt interested in LSU official

Four-star offensive tackle Emanuel McGirt could set up an official visit to LSU for as soon as this weekend

2015 four-star offensive tackle Emanuel McGirt could take a visit to LSU as early as this coming weekend.

The former North Carolina commit was scheduled to speak with the LSU coaches on Monday night. He told TSD that he hoped to set up an official visit to see the Tigers play Kentucky this weekend.

McGirt dropped his pledge to the Tar Heels in August, and has received plenty of attention from a number of schools, including LSU. He's regularly named Georgia and North Carolina State as his leaders. He's visited both schools this season.

The Tigers do still have a need at offensive tackle with Matt Womack the only OT commit (Adrian Magee and Maea Teuhema are projected guards on the next level). Womack is considered a "soft commit" though because he has official visits scheduled to Florida and Alabama.

McGirt's one of several tackles LSU is still courting. The Tigers are working hard to flip Shreveport prospect Jerry Tillery, a Notre Dame commit, and William Sweet, a North Carolina commit. Tillery has attended multiple LSU games this season, and Sweet is scheduled for an official Nov. 8 when LSU hosts Alabama.
