Prevot will visit for LSU practice

Prevot had a big weekend in Houston

Torrodney Prevot is one of the hottest prospects in the country, going from zero to 15 scholarship offers in a matter of weeks. Thanks to LSU being the first to offer Prevot, the rising star remains high on the Tigers.

On Feb. 10, Houston (TX) Alief Taylor defensive end Torrodney Prevot picked up his first scholarship offer after a phone call with LSU coach Les Miles.

"(Miles) just came out and told me that they are offering me a full scholarship," Prevot told Scout.com's Ahmard Vital after receiving the offer. "Coach Miles told me that they are losing a lot of defensive linemen in this graduating class and that I could make a difference on the team."

Fast forward one month, Prevot's stock is sky high. With 15 scholarships under his belt in four weeks time, he is one of the hottest 2013 prospects in the country.

"LSU was my first offer, and that was pretty big for me because I hadn't had anything to that point," Prevot said.

Within a week of hearing from the Tigers, Utah, Texas A&M and Oklahoma had also offered.

"It was just crazy hearing from LSU, and then it was one after the other," Prevot said. "They started coming almost daily."

At Texas Junior Day on Feb. 25, Prevot was the lone 2013 prospect offered by Mack Brown that didn't commit to the Longhorns on the spot, a sign that Prevot might be a little more willing to leave the Lone Star State for college than the normal top prospect out East Texas.

"I am keeping things open, at least for now," Prevot said. "I will come to a decision in the summer. LSU will definitely be in the mix."

Since extending an offer to Prevot, the LSU staff has kept in consistent contact with the 6-foot-4, 210-pound defensive end prospect.

The hunt to land Prevot is being lead by special teams coordinator Thomas McGaughey, who is one of the LSU assistants assigned to recruit Texas for the Tigers.

"I talk to McGaughey a good bit," Prevot said. "I talked to him recently, and he is really excited to get me down there on a visit. After talking with him, I feel like I am high up on their wish list.

"I did some looking around, and they haven't offered a ton of guys at my position. I feel like they really want me there."

The staff will get their biggest chance to make an impression to date when they host Prevot for a spring practice in two weeks.

"I am going to be at LSU March 17," he said. "I am going to Texas A&M on March 23. Those are both spring practices.

"Then I have the NFTC in Dallas. That's all I have planned so far."

Prevot proved his worth this weekend with a spectacular performance at Houston's Nike SPARQ Combine, dominating the field and earning one of only three offers that has been extended for Nike's The Opening this summer in Oregon.

His 102.81 SPARQ rating is the highest by a defensive lineman in the 2013 class.

"It was just a good morning for me," Prevot said. "I just came out there and wanted to compete. I think I could go have done even better, because I have hit a 4.5 (40-yard dash) before. I know I'm faster than what I showed."
