All-world wide-receiver, Chris Tolliver (6'1, 185, 4.4) from Rayville High School recently took an unofficial visit and he spoke to Tiger Rag about his trip to Baton Rouge.

"My visit went well," said Tolliver. "I didn't get the chance to really speak with many of the LSU coaches, but I did hang out with Richard Murphy (former Rayville H.S running back). He showed me around the campus a little bit and it had a good atmosphere. I could feel it."


Where does LSU stand with Louisiana's No. 1 rated prospect?


"I've always liked LSU," he said. "They have a good football program, good academics, and I really liked the facilities. I also like how it is close to home. It is only about a two and a half hour trip from my house. So I guess you could say I like everything about the school."


Rayville head coach Bo Barton normally likes for his players to make a decision about their future prior to their senior year but as of now it looks like Tolliver will not follow suit.


"I haven't really changed my mind any with what I want to do," explained Tolliver. "I still think I am going to wait until my season is over before I decide."


Tolliver has offers from several high-profile programs and one thing he has realized is that the recruiting process is a joint effort.


"I haven't narrowed any of my choices down," informed Tolliver. "My parents and I have been breaking some schools down though. I've also been talking to them as well as my coaches about everything. My high school receivers coach has been breaking down the depth charts of some of the schools that have offered me. Everyone is kind of pitching in."


Will the depth chart or the status of the quarterback play a factor in making his decision?


"It doesn't really matter to me who the quarterback is or will be," said Tolliver. "I'm really not even too concerned about the depth at the receiver position. I just want to go to a school where I am going to feel comfortable. That is probably the most important thing to me."


Note: Tolliver recorded a 2.5 GPA last school year and will be retaking the ACT in September. The 1st team class 3A All-State receiver led the state in receiving with 1,521 yards receiving and 17 touchdowns.
