OL Josh Williford still high on the Tigers

Scout.com's #80 nationally ranked offensive tackle was on his way home from a LSU football game when we made contact. The message was simple.

"I am going to school to LSU next year," added Josh Williford.

What attracted the Dothan (AL) product to LSU?

"I just like everything about it. The fan base, the family atmosphere, the relationship the coaches have the players. I just like it all."

Anyone else calling outside of LSU?

"Ole Miss, USM, Stanford, Alabama, and Auburn continually contact me, but there is nothing to it. I am 100% LSU."

Josh has had a chance to take in a couple LSU games this Fall but one of them stuck out.

"The Alabama game was the best game I have ever been to. Hey, LSU might have lost, but they played their heart out. The stadium was crazy. I can't wait to play for those fans."

Williford has played on both sides of the ball this season for Houston Academy but offensive tackle is where he projects.

"I have been doing a great job of pass blocking this year, and that was not one of my strengths last year. I went to some camps this summer, and it has become easier."
