"It was amazing"

Scout.com 4-star tight end Alex Russian took his official visit to LSU this weekend and he was sky high when we caught up with him on Sunday afternoon.

Before Tiger Rag could even ask a question, the first words out of LSU commit Alex Russian were, "It was a pretty amazing visit."


Russian said this trip reassured him that he has made the right decision as far where he wants to play football and be a student.


"I had a really great time," said Russian. "Because it was me and I think like eight other recruits we really got a chance to bond. Matt Flynn was our tour guide and everyone just took care of us really well."


Russian said learning about LSU's campus life is the thing he will take away the most from this trip.


"We took a tour of the campus and the facilities and they were just great," said Russian. "I really feel like this gave me a better insight into LSU college life. I got to see how student athletes live in a college environment. This trip was really just the icing on the cake."
