Q&A: Elliot Porter
Oh yeah, it’s a big time challenge. It’s all for the best and getting ready for college level. You have guys going to D1 schools, some of the top schools in the nation, so I’m just getting ready for the best of the best.
You've done well this week, does that give you some confidence?
Oh yeah, it gives you a lot of confidence, because you know if you can block somebody out here that’s bigger than you or the same size as you, you’re pretty much going to be ok in the future.
Has LSU told you specifically which position you'll be playing?
I'll probably end up playing guard, put a little weight on and end playing guard.
What about playing early?
It’s all up to me. If I come up ready, learn my playbook and stuff, maybe I can fight for a spot because they have two guard spots open next year. I’m going to fight for a spot and if I get, I’ll get it.
How much time have you spent with the two other LSU commits this week?
Me and Ronnie are close. We’ve known each other for a couple years and it’s cool. Cameron, I met him up in June. Everybody’s been real cool. We’ve just been hanging out.
Watching Cam out here, what has your impression of him been?
Oh, he’s real good. He’s going to be good. He’s real athletic. If he plays offensive line, tight end, whatever it is, he’s going to be good at it.
Can you talk about your relationship with the LSU coaches and how that affected your decision?
Well, we’re very close. Coach Miles is very close with me. Coach Stud (offensive line coach Greg Studrawa) is very close with me. You know, all these guys are real good coaches. It’s just a real close relationship and that’s what made my commitment. They’re real good people over there and that’s what made my commitment. Everybody’s family oriented, so that’s what makes me feel good about LSU.
