Tennessee athlete eyeing LSU option

It looks like an SEC battle is shaping up over FB/LB David Holbert of Brentwood, Tenn.<br><br>Could LSU hold a trump card to gain his commitment?

Holbert has already taken official visits to Auburn and Tennessee this month and will go to Florida (1-16) and LSU (1-23) in January. Louisville is favored to get a visit on Jan. 9 ahead of Oklahoma State.

"With Florida, I really like their coaches," he said. "They seem real sincere and they are pretty excited about the future of that program, but with Chris Leak there, I don't know how a fullback really fits into their plans. But I will check them out and see.

Does Holbert see a college future on defense? If so, one team has caught his eye. "LSU is actually recruiting me to play linebacker, and I love their defense," Holbert said. "They really play aggressively." Holbert said he does not have a leader and plans to make his choice after his visits.
