Prater's coming in June

With only five scholarship players returning next season, linebacker was one of the biggest needs in LSU's 2008 recruiting class. The LSU coaches made an effort to replenish the depth at the position by signing three in the class and one of those signees was Kyle Prater from Kerrville, (Texas).

Kyle Prater

Prater was one of the most dominant players in the San Antonio area in his senior season at Tivy High School, and he was rewarded for his play on the field with multiple post season accolades.

"I don't have the sheet in front of me, but I think I finished the year with 142 tackles," Prater said. "I was named to the all-district, all-region, and all-state team. I was also named the Greater San Antonio Super Team Defensive MVP."

Prater was also named to the West squad in the US Army All-American Bowl and that experience helped prepare him for the next level.

"Playing in the Army game was a big honor to me," Prater said. "I got to play with the best athletes from around the nation. Everyone there is bigger, faster, and stronger than what you're used to in high school, so you have to adjust pretty quick. I think it gave me a good look into the future and what it's going to be like playing in the SEC."

LSU sends all of their incoming freshmen a workout program to prepare them for when they move to Baton Rouge, courtesy of strength coach Tommy Moffit.

Prater says he has been keeping up with the workout as best he can but he has another obligation that must be met.

"It's a pretty thick packet, and we have a really set regiment to stay on," said Prater. "We have workout periods for baseball, so I do what I can then. Whatever I don't get to I make sure to makeup on Saturday and Sunday."

"I've talked to Coach Moffit about it," Prater added. "He told me to just keep up with it the best I can, and that it's my responsibility to stay in shape."

Prater is enjoying his last season on the baseball diamond before focusing strictly on football in college and things are going well for the 6-2, 210-pounder.

"We are having a good season," Prater said. "We are playing for the district championship on Friday. My coach doesn't really give us our stats, but I know I have two homeruns. I pitch and play 3rd base and outfield. I'm kind of the utility guy."

After committing last July and signing his letter of intent over two and a half months ago, Prater is ready to move to Baton Rouge and get his college career started.

With a 3.5 GPA and 1070 SAT, the only thing stopping him now is time.

"I'm moving to LSU in early June," he said. "I'm not sure who I'm going to room with yet. I've met a few of the guys already on visits. We all get along great, so I don't think there will be any problems no matter who my roommates are. I'm really looking forward to meeting up with everybody again."

Prater was planning on getting reacquainted with many of his fellow signees a few weeks ago at the LSU spring game, but unfortunately he was unable to attend.

"I couldn't make it in for the spring game," he said. "I got the invitation and was planning on going, but we had an away game the night before. I just didn't have enough time to get back in town and get to the airport."

Prater has certainly worked very hard already to get to where he currently is as a player. But he also realizes he will have to work even harder to be successful at the next level, and that's his biggest goal for his freshman season.

"The most important thing for me to do my first year is to get adjusted," he said. "I need to get bigger, faster, and stronger. I need learn a lot of new schemes to get ready for all the different offenses in the SEC."

"Hopefully I'm able to come in and make a difference right away," Prater added. "But if I end up redshirting that's not a big deal."

Redshirting is a topic the LSU coaches have discussed with Prater a few times already and he has a positive outlook on things if the chips fall that way.

"They want to see how well I'm adjusting and doing in practices," said Prater. "I'd rather get o the field as fast as I can. But if I do redshirt that's fine too. That's an extra year of football. I can't go wrong either way."

Of all the 2008 recruits around the country, one thing that only LSU signees can say is that they will be coming to play for the defending national champions.

Prater thinks that could also be an honor for LSU's 2009 class.

"Our team goal next year should be to win the national championship again," he said. "We are losing a lot of seniors from last year's team, but the upcoming seniors are just as good if not better from what I hear. With all the players we have coming back next year, a national championship is a very realistic goal."
