Gary Riggs Update

Jennings (La.) safety Gary Riggs (6-3, 205, 4.56) made the short trip to Baton Rouge on Saturday to take in LSU's Spring Game and he made some coaches very happy in the process.

"I got the chance to talk to coach Saban and he was real happy that me and my cousin went," said Riggs who posted 75 tackles and three interceptions last season. "Coach (Travis) Jones said they're going to be coming to watch some spring practices soon."

Jennings gets its spring drills underway on Tuesday but Riggs will sit out a couple of days due to the Track and Field Regionals. He takes part in the long jump (24') and the triple jump (45') but football is where his heart lies.

Recruiting is starting to heat up for Riggs and a couple of new schools are starting to show a lot of interest. So, what's been developing on the recruiting front?

"Ole miss offered me a full scholarship," Riggs told Tiger Rag. "UCLA and Michigan have been sending stuff lately and said they're going to come watch me during the spring. Right now my top five is LSU, Florida, Miami, Oklahoma and Michigan."

Is there a leader?

"LSU," he said.
