Natchez (Miss.) Trinity Episcopal running back Stevan Ridley pulled back on the early verbal pledge he gave to Ole Miss and said that he could soon be committing to LSU.
After pulling the trigger so early in the recruiting process, the 6-0, 220-pounder wanted to think about things for a few days before making his big decision.
On Sunday evening Tiger Rag caught up with the Magnolia State product to see if he was still planning on making that call to LSU head coach Les Miles.
"Yes sir," Ridley said. "I'm going to call coach Miles either tomorrow (Monday) or Tuesday to make it official."
Ridley said that he decided over the weekend that LSU was going to be his home after high school but one of his biggest fans wants to be there when he makes the call.
"My coach (David King) is the biggest LSU fan in the world and he wants me to call coach Miles from his phone so he can be there," said Ridley.
The last week or so has been a series of ups and downs for Ridley as he had to call Ole Miss head coach Ed Orgeron and tell him that he was withdrawing his pledge. He said that was hard to do because he did make a commitment to the Rebels but in the end he had to do what was best for him.
So how does it feel knowing that he is about to become LSU's sixth verbal commitment for 2007?
"I'm pretty pumped about it," said an enthusiastic Ridley. "I've always had that dream of what it would be like if LSU came calling and I had the chance to play there. It's such a big dream that came true. It still hadn't hit me."
Is Ridley about to make the call?
