Four-star LSU LB/Defensive end commitment Erick Fowler discusses his recruitment after Monday's practice for the U.S. Army All-American Bowl

Fowler (Manor, Texas) has been committed to LSU since June 13, 2015. But schools like Texas are doing what it can to sway him.

Fowler had a solid day at linebacker for the West on Monday. The players only wore shoulder pads for half of practice so there was not a whole lot of hitting going on, but Fowler did show off his coverage skills, one aspect of his game which has made him such a hot commodity across the country.

Evaluation

Fowler is a player who is perfectly suited to be an edge player in college whether he puts his hand on the ground or does it from a stand-up position, it matters little. All that matters is that he is a whirlwind of a defender who constantly applies pressure to the opposing offenses, sucking up running back behind the line of scrimmage and sacking quarterbacks often. He has the size to take a pounding and deliver one as equally as well. - Powers
