Jasper Enjoyed Stay at LSU

Memphis (Tenn.) Ridgeway kicker Josh Jasper made an unofficial visit to LSU last weekend for the homecoming game against Tulane and he was still reeling with excitement late Monday night.

"It was exciting," said Josh Jasper, who is 5-7 in field goals and has kicked 25 of 25 extra points so far this season. "I wish Tulane would have matched up better against LSU and made it a better game."


For his first game in Tiger Stadium, Jasper said he was very impressed.


"The crowd and the stadium was unlike anything I've ever seen," said Jasper. "The noise and fan support was great. The student section was amazing. I definitely look forward to playing in front of that kind of atmosphere."


Jasper said one of the things he was most impressed by was his ability to spend time with Miles, even on game day.


"I toured the campus almost all day," said Jasper. "I talked with all of the coaches and I talked with coach Miles for a long time. It made me feel special that I got to spend so much time with him, especially since it was game day. I got to witness all the homecoming festivities."


Jasper said he and Miles talked about a couple of things.


"We talked about what my role would be with the team," said Jasper. "We talked about how I'd be fighting for a place kicking position, kick offs and field goals. We also talked about working me in to the punting unit as well. They are switching to that new rugby style and that's something I think I would be able to do well."


At this point, Jasper is so committed to LSU, that he said he doesn't even have plans to visit any other schools.


"At this point I don't have any plans on visiting any other schools," said Jasper. "I Think I might come back down for the Alabama game and make that my official visit."


Note*** Jasper said he is doing well in school and plans to take the ACT in October. He said one other thing he likes about LSU is its academic program. He said right now he is looking at majoring in architecture.
