One player from the 2007 recruiting class that LSU head coach Les Miles and his coaching staff have their sights set on is Alpharetta, Georgia center T - Bob Hebert.


Hebert, the son of former New Orleans Saints quarterback Bobby Hebert, has been making noise on both sides of the ball for Greater Atlanta Christian, recording a 91% blocking score with 54 pancakes as a center for the offense, as well as five sacks at defensive tackle to earn himself All-County honors as a junior.


The 6'3" 260 lb. lineman is not ready to name a favorite college team as of yet but did say that four schools stand out above the rest.


"I've gotten offers from LSU, Georgia, Ole Miss and Auburn," Hebert said, "And I really like all four of those schools a lot."


Hebert also stated that he feels college football does not get any better than in the South Eastern Conference, because of the high level of competition, the fans, and tradition in the SEC, and hopes he will end up playing at an SEC school.


When asked what sets his four favorites apart from the rest, Hebert commented that he has been by to visit them, attending all four school's junior days, and that he has personal connections to each school.


"I know people from high school that play at Georgia, Auburn and Ole Miss," he said, "I've been to Athens, [Ga.,] a few times and enjoyed it.  I also think Auburn is a lot of fun, and my dad is good friends with coach Tubberville."


As for LSU, Hebert said he has always been a huge Tiger fan, living in Louisiana until he was four, and loves the school's coaches and facilities. He has spoken to Miles as well as LSU linebackers coach Bradley Dale Peveto several times and has great things to say about the Tiger staff.


"Coach Peveto came to see me at school a few days ago," he said. "I got to talk to him briefly on the phone and then I called him again later that night. He is a great guy. He's been really helpful and is real funny and upbeat."


And coach Miles?


"I've also been real impressed by coach Miles," Hebert added. "I first met him when they gave me my offer [at Junior Day]. He text messaged me the other day and I called him back. He said he wanted to make sure that I knew I was a priority for LSU."


T-Bob said that Miles told him LSU is at a point where they are looking for a true center and that he feels Hebert could be very helpful.


What else does he have to offer a college program?


"I feel like I'm pretty far along on my footwork and that I have a good knowledge of the game when it comes to reading defenses and things like that," he said.


Note: When spring training opens up next week, Hebert has been told to expect visits from representatives from his four top schools as well as Vanderbilt. He plans on spending the rest of the off season getting bigger and working on his footwork, and is scheduled to attend summer camps at LSU, Georgia, Ole Miss, Auburn and Boston College.
