"I never had a second thought"
The following information was revealed during our interview with JD Lawhorn:
Did you make it in on your visit? "Yea, it was fun."
Did anyone accompany you? "My parents did."
How did they like it? "Well, it was a chance for my parents to get to know everyone, everyone on the staff. We have seen the facilities and everything."
Was this your first meeting with Coach Orgeron? "Yes sir."
What was your impression? "I loved him. He brings a lot of intensity. He will get the best out of his players. He makes you want to play right away after you him speak."
Expand on that comment. "He gets everyone fired up. I have never had a coach like that. He just motivates you. His cheers gets you all fired up. I can definitely tell he will have us motivated for next year."
Did this visit reconfirm your commitment? "I mean, yea, I never had a second thought. I guess you can say after I met coach, I am a lot more excited because I know he can get the best out of me."
Did you get a chance to talk with any of the other recruits during the trip? "Yea, I talked to Jada Brown. I met Burnell Wallace. I was just telling Burnell what it was like, since he starts school on Tuesday and everything."
JD carries a 2.8 GPA and a 21 on the ACT.
