Day takes in LSU Junior Day

It's another year in recruiting and another year with multiple prospects from West Monroe High School. Tiger fans are already familiar with Jordan Allen, but now there's another Rebel to get acquainted with in offensive tackle Dillen Day.

Day and his parents made the drive down to Baton Rouge to Monroe early this morning to attend LSU's junior day festivities. The 6-2, 262 pound offensive lineman said the trip was well worth it.


"Junior day went pretty well today," he said. "We got to see all the facilities and meet with Coach Miles and Coach Stud."


Day and his parents arrived on campus around noon, and the events began shortly after.


"When we first got there we went to Coach Stud's office," Day said. "He showed us an offensive line video and talked to us about his coaching philosophy and what he looks for in a recruit. Then we met back up with the other positions and watched a motivational video, which was really cool."


"After that we had lunch with the coaches and players," he continued. "Then we went a toured the Cox Center to see the academic setup, and that was pretty much it."


The visit to LSU's junior day was Day's first college visit of any kind, but he hopes to make more visits to other schools recruiting him in the near future.


"Right now I'm being recruited by LSU, Alabama, UCLA, Georgia, Arkansas, and Florida," Day said. "I want to visit those schools also and see what they have to offer. I want to go to as many schools as I can. I'm hoping to go to UCLA's junior day in a few weeks."


While this visit was Day's first time visiting LSU, he is very familiar with the Tiger program.


"I watch LSU on TV all the time," Day said. "They always have a good team and always win. I really like Coach Stud; he seems like a great coach. The academic center with the individual tutors is really nice."


"I talk to Will Blackwell and Barkevious Mingo," he continued. "They tell me how much they like LSU. And I'm good friends with Jordan Allen. He went to the first junior day that I wasn't able to go to. He told me I had to get down there and see it for myself."


Day was named all-district and honorable mention all-state while playing right tackle for West Monroe last season.
