Rashan Gary will be back on LSU's campus Wednesday.
The 5-star recruit ranked No. 1 in the country will make the return trip less than two weeks after he made his first visit to Baton Rouge. This time he'll have a very important guest with him too.
Gary's mother will accompany him as the two will fly down Wednesday morning and stay overnight. Gary's mother is a key piece in his decision-making process, and all schools must have her approval if they wish to recruit her son. She's checked out some of his other suitors, and this will be her first opportunity to see LSU.
LSU made a very positive impression on Gary when he came, made even clearer by his willingness to return so soon.
The New Jersey native came down with a coach and some teammates toward the tail end of LSU's Elite Camp last month. Gary said the LSU coaching staff welcomed him with open arms.
"I loved it," Gary said in an interview with Scout after that visit. "It was family. Everybody was happy to see us, even the players...When we got there, they welcomed us with open arms. We had a fun time."
Ed Orgeron continues to make huge strides with the best defensive linemen in the country. Earlier this week he offered five-star Oluwole Betiku, and the Californian is already working to schedule his official visit in the fall. There are several other big names on the board like Rashard Lawrence, Shavar Manuel, Raekwon Davis, Stephon Taylor and Ross Blacklock among others.
Now the mutual interest between LSU and Gary, the nation's best recruit, seems to be getting even hotter.
