One guy that Les Miles is holding a scholarship for is Longview (Texas) offensive lineman Trent Williams (6-4, 295, 5.2).
"Coach Miles and coach (Todd) Monken called last week and we talked for a while," Williams told Tiger Rag. "They were just letting me know they were going to hold a scholarship for me. He asked me how I was feeling and I told him I was going to take my visits just to make sure LSU was the right place for me."
Williams said the visits he will take are to Oklahoma State (12/2) and Oklahoma (no date set) with Texas A&M possibly getting one too.
LSU has led for Williams' signature since day one and with a little less than three months to go until National Signing Day that is still the case.
"LSU is still my top school," he said. "I got a chance to see the campus, to look at the depth chart and to see what they have to offer. There was not anything I didn't like about LSU. "
Williams said LSU and Oklahoma State are recruiting him the hardest but Oklahoma is also letting him know that he is a wanted man in Norman.
"OU is pretty thin on the o-line," said Williams. "All the coaches keep telling me is how they are going into spring ball with only seven guys."
LSU also has a need for o-linemen and that is something that the Miles and Monken have stated over and over to the Lonestar product.
"They are pretty thin at that spot too and that is something they have been telling me since they started recruiting me," he said. "That was one reason LSU has always been at the top and that is another reason they are right now."
