Down to two

Carthage (Texas) cornerback Jason Teague was scheduled to take an official visit to LSU this past weekend but a late push from the TCU coaching staff had him thinking about postponing his trip.

Tiger Rag caught up with Teague on Sunday evening to see if he went anywhere over the weekend.

"I just got back from LSU," Teague said. "I got back from Shreveport about 30 minutes ago."

How did it go?

"It went great," he said. "Their academic support is probably No. 1 in the country and then coach (Les) Miles, coach (Todd) Monken and coach (Doug) Mallory were all great people. They've got a good program down there."

Teague said he never really had the chance to sit down and talk with LSU's head coach in depth about the Tigers' situation but this weekend they spent several hours together.

"We talked a lot about their system and what they like to do," Teague said. "He said I fit into their system to a "T". They have corners that are kind of short and he said I'm the big corner type that has hips like a small guy and that can run. He said guys like me don't come around often."

Two weeks ago, Teague took his first official visit to Oklahoma two weeks ago and although he liked the trip to Norman he needed to see something else.

"I needed another big school to compare Oklahoma to," he said. "I liked Oklahoma but I needed to see a school like LSU before I made a decision."

So how do the Sooners and Tigers stack up?

"The biggest difference I saw was that the academic situation was better at LSU than OU," he said. "OU has more people from East Texas that I've played against and followed. LSU has the better campus and staff. They are both really close but when you look at what them they are both really different. They both have different things to offer."

One big difference that caught Teague's eye was the cornerback spot.

"OU has three already committed in this class and LSU doesn't have any," he said. "They both need corners but it's a plus for LSU that they don't have any yet."

Teague said he is going to sit back and weight out the pros and cons of each school and then make his decision. He said it could come sometime this week now that he will have some quiet time with the dead period.

"I wanted to get the LSU visit in this weekend and then have some time where I don't have to talk to coaches and will actually be able to think about my decision," he said. "It's a really hard decision because both are such good schools."

So what about the trip to TCU?

"I probably want take any more visits and just decide between LSU and OU," he said.

Is he leaning one way or the other?

"It's 50-50," he said.
