Ol' Ball Coach came knocking at Mitchell door

Louisiana's No. 1 athlete Jared Mitchell received an in-house visit from Steve Spurrier on Tuesday and LSU fans were worried that the ol' ball coach would leave the bayou state with his pledge.

Did that happen?

"No sir," Mitchell said. "He tried a little but he understood that I wasn't ready."

According to Mitchell, Les Miles and Spurrier both covered the same topics on their in-house visits which were Monday and Tuesday, respectively.

"They both just talked about the role I would have in the offense and how I'd fit in if I chose their school," he said.

LSU defensive backs coach Doug Mallory did not waste any time in following up on Spurrier's visit as he checked up on Mitchell on Wednesday.

"He called up at the school just to see how the visit went and that was it," Mitchell said.

Did Mallory ask if he was ready to pull the trigger?

"He asked me if I was ready to come on board," Mitchell said with a laugh. "I think he was kind of joking because he knew I still hadn't made my decision."

Mitchell said he needs a little time to sit back and analyze everything then he should be ready to make a pledge.

"I just need to talk it over some and look at everything again so I can make the best decision for myself," he said.

Is he leaning one way or the other?

"Not really," he said with a chuckle.
