Teague, a 6-2, 190-pounder with 4.5 speed, is listed as a safety by Scout.com but LSU, and every other school for that matter, is recruiting him as a corner.
Teague has the skills to match up against the opposing team's best receiver and completely take him out of the game. He is very good at jamming receivers off the line and he has great awareness.
Last season, the Lonestar product just about did it all for Carthage High School. He picked off six passes and returned three of them for scores, rushed for over 1,500 yards, added another 600 receiving and blocked seven kicks on special teams.
LSU was not the only school slow to get in on Teague because over the last couple of months he has landed offers from Oklahoma, Texas, Texas A&M, TCU, Baylor, UTEP and Colorado State.
Teague took an official visit to Oklahoma the first weekend in December and this weekend he will take his second official.
"I'll be heading to LSU this weekend," Teague told Tiger Rag. "I was coming in last weekend but I had to take the ACT. I wouldn't have been able to get the full experience so we decided to wait until now."
Monken was in Carthage on Monday finalizing all of his itinerary for the trip and Teague said he is one of the reasons LSU is in the race.
"What really caught my eye with LSU was coach Monken," Teague said. "I can tell him anything. He is not a recruiter that pressures me in any way. He tells me all of the things LSU has to offer me and lets me know they would love to have me but no pressure. I don't know what it was but we just hit it off."
While Teague spoke very highly of his bond with Monken he said that there are plenty of other factors that have LSU high on his list.
"It's the SEC baby," he said. "It's a big-time school in the SEC. Every week you play against Florida, Auburn, Georgia and the list goes on. There is never a break in that conference. I met most of the coaches and they were cool. Then I met some of the players and they were real cool too."
Teague took an unofficial visit to LSU for the regular season finale against Arkansas and that gave him his first taste of LSU football live and in living color.
"I don't think you can get much better than Death Valley," he said. "They had like over 90,000 people there and it was loud."
After Teague's trip to Baton Rouge he will visit TCU and Baylor. He said after that he should know where he wants to go. As for naming a leader he said that he has one but that could all change after these next visits.
"It would be OU (Oklahoma) because I've been there and seen everything they have," he said. "That was my first visit and everyone said you always fall in love with the first one. Then you take some others and see what they have to offer.
"When I went to LSU I didn't get to see much of the campus or the facilities so I'm looking forward to seeing everything to compare them to OU."
