Are the Tigers in the Driver's seat?

Rayville (La.) offensive guard prospect D'Montreal Wilson got plenty of attention from the LSU coaching staff at junior day over the weekend.

Heading into his unofficial visit, the big 6-4, 300-pounder was told that a scholarship offer cold be coming his way in the near future and on Saturday it all came to fruition.

"Coach Miles offered me on Saturday," Wilson said.

Wilson said he did not commit to the Tigers because he did not want to make a quick decision but he holds that offer in high regard.

"I'm just not ready to commit yet because I need to see what other colleges have to offer," said Wilson. "I'm not ready yet but they are my top school."

The LSU offer marked the third one Wilson has accumulated with Ole Miss and Oklahoma being the other two. He said several schools seem to be recruiting him pretty hard and he listed Baylor, Tennessee, Auburn and Arkansas as the ones showing the most interest.

This past weekend was the first time Wilson had gotten a chance to get to know Miles and the other coaches and he liked what he saw in all of the coaches but especially the headman.

"You can tell he has a good relationship with the players and I like that," said Wilson. "Coach Miles said he would be more than just a coach to me. He said he would be like a father to me."

Wilson said he wants to put recruiting behind him before his senior year starts so he does not have any distractions and mentioned that he will likely make his decision over the summer.

Can LSU make two years in a row at getting a blue-chip recruit from Rayville High School?

If I was a betting man I would say the odds are in the Tigers' favor.
