Clapp impressed with new LSU offense
Clapp was already sold on what the program had to offer and where he'd fit along the offensive line. He didn't have any concerns about the LSU offense then, but now that he's gotten a firsthand look at the offense now, Clapp's even more excited.
Clapp made a visit to campus on Saturday to take in the Tigers' first scrimmage of the spring. With the new passing game on display, Clapp came away impressed with how things are progressing.
"I think it's great, because the O-Line looked pretty good in Coach Cameron's offense," Clapp said. "It seems like they're all going to be looking pretty good. Everything's still getting installed, and the offense seems to be running really well."
Though Cameron's offense is certainly more passer-friendly, Clapp said LSU isn't steering away from the smashmouth brand of football it's been know for. That suits Clapp well.
"It's still physical football," Clapp said. "They're not becoming just a passing team. They're becoming balanced. The run game is still there. Kenny Hilliard and Jeremy Hill are still carrying the ball. It's still the same football, they just have the option of going deep."
After the scrimmage, Clapp got to meet with two of his future coaches, Les Miles and Greg Studrawa.
"I got to see Coach Miles and it's always good to see him," Clapp said. "He was just telling us how the scrimmage went and what he thought, he was asking our opinions on what happened. There was a lot of good stuff that happened in their scrimmage. With Coach Stud, we watched the film. He's such a great technician coach. He really knows what he's talking about. We just went over the plays, and he wanted to see what I had in mind."
Clapp, one of two LSU commits on campus Saturday, also got an opportunity to recruit this weekend. An early member of the 2014 class, Clapp had a chance to talk with some other elite visitors in attendance, prospects like Trey Quinn, Laurence Jones, Tony Brown and Kenny Young.
"There were a bunch of good guys that were there checking out the scrimmage," Clapp said. "It's cool. I was definitely hanging out with Trey the most out of everybody. We've become really good friends. We all had a good time on the sidelines."
