The Tigers are off to their hottest recruiting start ever, nabbing one Texas talent and eight in-state bodies from what is viewed as the most talent-rich Louisiana class in recent memory.
Greg Robinson, a four-star prospect out of Thibodaux High that is tabbed as the No. 3 ranked offensive guard in the nation for 2011, is one of the top talents remaining on the in-state board.
The big man was on hand for Saturday’s scrimmage, and he headed home with an even more comfortable take on the possibility of becoming a Tiger.
“It is in my heart that LSU is where I want to play,” Robinson said. “I am only worried about deciding early and then not giving myself the opportunity to look at everyone and give each school a chance. There is no doubt that playing in front of the hometown fans would mean everything to me. That is definitely one of the biggest things pulling me.
“I’m trying not to feel pressure with all of it now, and I will make the call as soon as I know the timing is right.”
Robinson used his weekend trip to continue to get acquainted with the LSU program, from hanging out with the players to talking recruiting with the staff.
“The committed guys like La’el Collins and [Anthony] Freak Johnson were there hanging out with me the whole day, and we are starting to have a really close friendship,” he said. “Coach Frank [Wilson] is selling all of us on being the future, and he wants us to use this recruiting class to take LSU to the next level.
“It is something I would love to be a part of, but I need some more time before things become a done deal.”
