"It was great," said Lloyd Grogan of his official visit to Louisiana Tech. "I'm back at home now. Coach (Sonny) Dykes talked to me, and I told him I was ready to commit.
"The coaches were excited. They said it's time to go to work. When I got there, they showed me around and I hung out with some of the football players. Everything was straight-forward. The players treated me with respect."
Grogan mentioned Tech safety Chad Boyd as a player he enjoyed spending time with during the visit.
Why did Grogan, a three-star prospect with several offers, pick the Bulldogs?
"I just like their program," he said. "It feels perfect; I fit in perfect with their defense. I feel relieved and not pressured (following the commitment). Now I can focus on only one school."
Grogan will likely attempt to recruit Patterson three-star prospects Trevon Stewart and Jaydrick Declouet to Tech. All three are from the same area. Stewart and Declouet are currently pledged to Houston, but the Cougars lost head coach Kevin Sumlin to Texas A&M and ace recruiter Jason Phillips - a Louisiana native - to SMU.
Grogan is currently starring on the basketball court for Central Catholic, which is 15-3 after handing Patterson its second loss of the season on Friday.
Louisiana Tech assistant coach Pierre Ingram was present for the Central Catholic/Patterson game. Ingram recruited Grogan and continues to pursue Stewart and Declouet.
The UL Ragin' Cajuns could get the last crack at Grogan, who is scheduled to visit on January 27th.
'13 DE/LB Lamar Grogan, younger brother of Lloyd, is a prospect to watch next season.
