Lorenzo Dantzler was ready to commit to Southern Miss even before he had his final conversation with Coach Monken. The talented 6'2 DE from Starkville knew he had found the right fit from the moment he walked on campus.
"Southern Miss is all about the people," he told GoldenEaglePride.com.
"Everyone is so friendly, I met over 50 people in one day! I love the campus and the education plan they have for me.
"Southern Miss is all about family."
The staff talked about how they see him as a part of the defense.
"They see me as a hybrid DE/OLB and they all told me I'll have a great career at USM and they are going to prepare me for the NFL," he said.
"They've had a player drafted the last four years, and only eight schools have done that. I'm very excited about the future."
Dantzler said Trae Collins was his host for the weekend, and that he's fully committed and does not have any plans for other visits.
"SMTTT," he said.
