Last December, Trevon Randle was not hesitant to talk leaders with his recruitment process.
“LSU is what I am waiting on,” he said.
Randle went as far as to say that when the offer came, he would likely commit on the spot.
While the nation’s No. 5 ranked outside linebacker still has not decided to pull the trigger, a decision could be in the near future. And according to Randle, the race has evened out.
“I am just taking it day by day,” Randle said. “I really like a few of the schools that are showing me love, so I don’t know where I am going to head.”
This weekend, Randle will travel to Austin for the Longhorns’ Junior Day. The following weekend, the 6-foot-2, 205-pound prospect has plans to be in Baton Rouge.
“I set things up so I could be at the Texas and LSU weekends,” he said. “I am looking forward to both trips, and I hope the offers keep rolling in.
“I know there will be good news with LSU, because the coaches told me I am getting my offer,” he added. “They just wanted to do it in person.”
With offers from Arizona, Baylor, Houston, Nebraska, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, Oregon and UCLA, most feel that the Longhorns will come calling this weekend – and that a commitment could follow.
At the US Army All-American junior combine in San Antonio this past January, Randle was tabbed as the most complete linebacker; in turn making him one of the hottest commodities in the Greater Houston area for 2011.
This past season, Randle amassed 163 total tackles.
