Gant recaps LSU visit
Jaquel Gant gave LSU a glowing review after the Tigers hosted the 6-2, 190-pound junior last Saturday. "They treated me good," Gant said. "I like how the fans get hyped after the touchdowns. I like the locker room, too. The coaches asked how I did in my game Friday and Austin Thomas, the director of player personnel, was glad to see me and said I'm welcome anytime I want to go to an LSU game." Gant was pleased with offensive coordinator Cam Cameron's downfield passing game. "I like how LSU was throwing to Odell Beckham and Jarvis Landry," he said. "Those guys go get it no matter where you throw it. "Beckham stepped up even more from the first game. He had an outburst against UAB. Landry is a good receiver. When you throw it to him on third down, he's going to get the first (down)." Gant racked up nearly 100 yards receiving in Donaldsonville's week one win over Assumption, and he'll need another nice game in order for the Class 3A Tigers to upset 5A Dutchtown. "We have to go out and not play scared just because they're Dutchtown," he said. "Everything will have to be perfect because they have much more depth." Gant is eager to showcase his skills vs. Dutchtown, which features two Arkansas wide receiver commits in Torrance Mosley and Corey McBride. "That makes me want to play harder," he said of squaring off against the pair of future Razorbacks. The junior said his team focused on conditioning this week. He'll head to Lafayette Saturday to watch the Cajuns entertain Nicholls State. "I'm going with my dad," he said. "One of the UL coaches asked me to come to their home opener. I watched them on TV against Arkansas. They played a good game even though they lost."
