At 6-4, 250 pounds Randall Dent couldn’t pass on the opportunity to attend the camp and compete with and against some of the nation’s best prospects.
“I got to LSU on Saturday night and I’m home now,” Dent said. “The camp was good. There were a lot of players there and a lot of good competition. There were guys from all over the place like Texas, Louisiana, and Mississippi. I talked to a lot of them but don’t remember any of their names really.”
“I’d say the best lineman there was probably Chris Faulk,” he continued. “I never went up against him but of all the guys I watched he was probably the best.”
Dent also took some time to see LSU facilities and talk with a few of the coaches.
“The facilities are very nice here,” he said. “This is my second time being here so I’d seen a lot of the facilities before. I had never seen the indoor practice field though. I think that’s the biggest one I’ve ever seen.”
“The coaches here were really good too,” Dent continued. “They taught us a lot of fundamentals and stuff. Coach McCarthy is my recruiting coach, and I talked to him for a little bit. Coach Lane was running our defensive line drills. He is a real good coach, and he wants you to do everything perfectly. I also got to shake Coach Miles’ hand and talk to him for a little while.”
The 3-star prospect left camp without an offer from the Tigers but his camp experience still helped LSU in his mind.
“The camp has definitely helped LSU’s chances,” Dent said. “We did everything the players on campus already do. In fact I saw a few of them out there doing their drills and just hanging around the facility like Tyson Jackson and Trindon Holliday. I would really like to come back here for a game.”
As for the rest of his recruitment, Dent says he currently has ten offers and is looking closer at a few schools than the others.
“Right now Oklahoma State, Kansas, and Nebraska are a few of the schools I’m really interested in,” said Scout.com’s 40th ranked defensive tackle. “I couldn’t really tell you when I’m going to commit though. It’s just going to be whenever I feel the time is right. And I need to take a few more visits first. I’ll probably take some official visits to see some schools on the west coast like Oregon and Arizona. I might be taking one to LSU too.”
