Badie visits LSU
"(Teammates) Brandon Porter, Cyle Cortez and I were invited to the LSU/Auburn game," said Sherman Badie. "It was fun and made me go wild. It made me feel like I need to go there for college. Coach (Frank) Wilson talked to me. He was happy to see me. I hope that an LSU offer comes my way." Badie, who has carried the football 37 times for 672 yards (18.16 yards per rush), has scored nine touchdowns. He leads the undefeated and Class 2A top-ranked Patriots in rushing, touchdowns, and yards per carry. "I'm trying to tear it up when I get the ball," said Badie. "I focus on keeping my feet and just keep going. I've been surprised at the amount of yards I'm getting. It's been amazing, the way I've been able to break tackles with no problem." Badie says he prefers running back to strong safety, but that he's open to playing either position in college. In addition to LSU, he lists Pittsburgh, Mississippi State and Alabama as programs of interest. "I haven't looked into them specifically, but I've watched them play on TV and saw they have a good running back," Badie said of Pitt. Badie attributes much of his success to his lower body strength, which is evidenced by a 420-pound squat as a sophomore. He has teammates committed to both LSU and Mississippi State. TE Dillon Gordon is pledged to the Tigers, while DE Torrey Bell has cast his lot with the Bulldogs.
