Duncan comments on trip to the bayou

Dallas (Ga.) East Paulding offensive tackle Paul Duncan (6-6, 288, 5.38) took his official visit to LSU last weekend and Tiger Rag caught up with him to get his thoughts on his trip to the bayou.

"It was a good visit," Duncan told Tiger Rag. "I got to meet a lot of the players and all of the coaches. The coaches were real genuine with what they had to say. They didn't try to trick you. They tell you how it is and if you don't like it then you just don't like it. That is how they feel and I liked that a lot."

Duncan got into town on Friday and he spent the early part of the evening catching a movie with his player host, Ryan Miller. The day got started early on Saturday with some one-on-one time with the coaches and then it was time to see what the LSU game day experience was all about.

"It was pretty exciting around the stadium," Duncan said. "It was funny when Alabama came in on their buses and there were these little girls just yelling at them. You could see the fire in their eyes for the way they love their team. Then the game was exciting too. It was loud. I liked the way they students stayed in the game. They didn't do like other schools and just yell all of the time. They had their own chants and dances they would do."

Duncan had taken official visits to Oklahoma and UCLA before his trip to Baton Rouge. With three down and two remaining which visit has made the biggest impression on him?

"Probably LSU," he said. "The thing I liked was the coaches weren't around you all of the time but you could tell they wanted you. It was a happy medium."

In Tiger Rag's last interview with Duncan he said the Tigers and Notre Dame were battling for his top spot. Did this visit create any separation between his two favorites?

"It's hard to say because I haven't been to Notre Dame on an official yet," he said. "It's still pretty close between those two."

Next up for Duncan is an official visit to Duke this weekend and then two weeks later he will trip to Notre Dame.

That trip to South Bend, Ind. could be the defining moment in the battle for one of the top offensive tackles in the Peach State.
