Benton talks about weekend & other recruits

Bastrop wide receiver DeAngelo Benton took his official visit to LSU this weekend and although he had been there several times before the trip was well worth it for the nation's 7th rated wide out.

"It was good," Benton told Tiger Rag. "It made me realize why I chose LSU in the first place. Everything was great."


Benton was not the only highly regarded prospect on campus for a visit as he joined several others including the nation's top rated running back in Joe McKnight and top rated safety in Chad Jones.


"We were all having a good time," said Benton. I talked to Chad a little and I think he will be coming on down too. Joe spent a lot of time with the coaches but we talked some when we ate and he was talking good about it too."


Next weekend is the final weekend for official visits before National Signing Day and Benton that one coach is trying to get him to use that weekend for a visit.


"Nick Saban is trying to get me to go down to Alabama but I'm not going to go," stated Benton. "I know where I'm going and it's to LSU so no need to go anywhere else."
