D.J. Hord (6-1, 190, 4.4) of Kansas City (Missouri) Rockhurst is rated the No. 11 wideout in the country by TheInsiders.com and he made the trip to Baton Rouge so he could get a taste of what SEC football is all about.
Since he will probably take his official visit after the season Hord felt like it was important to see what a game in Death Valley was like. The only drawback to the standout receiver going down last weekend was he did not get to see a night game in Tiger Stadium because of the 11:30 a.m. kickoff.
But other than that everything was good.
"The atmosphere was great even though the game was not very competitive," Hord said. "I enjoyed the game and the facilities were very impressive."
Hord rated the experience an eight but he had a good explanation for not giving it a higher mark.
"I believe the early game and the opponent may have taken away from the normal hype," he said.
LSU will have another chance to impress Hord on his official visit but for now it appears the Tigers are right where they have been all along.
"LSU is currently one of my top choices but I am also looking at Notre Dame, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Kansas Sate, Missouri, Michigan and Nebraska," he said.
