Autry on LSU's radar
With so much talent, recruiters from every conference flock to Norcross in order to get in on the quality prospects. LSU's Brick Haley was one of those coaches, making the trip on Wednesday to check in on some of the staff's targets.
The headliner is five-star DE Lorenzo Carter, who picked up an offer from LSU in April. But there's another 2014 prospect at Norcross on LSU's radar.
RB/ATH Myles Autry met with Haley for the first time on Wednesday,
"I talked to him, and he wants me to visit some time soon," Autry said. "He wants me to come on a special date when they're having a cookout and having fun. He definitely wants me to come out there."
Listed as a four-star RB on the Scout network, Autry has enough athleticism to fit in at a number of positions. Though an injury has shelved him for the offseason — he said he still has two months left in his rehab — Haley said the LSU coaches had seen enough in his highlight tape to catch their attention.
"He said they've been watching my film, and they're most likely going to offer me," Haley said. "He likes my speed. He said they're going to check out my film a little bit more, and they'll see from there…He said he's going to reach out to me soon."
Though that was the first time Autry had gotten to speak with Haley, the coach's purple and gold clothing quickly caught his eye.
"He caught my attention, and I was pretty surprised when I saw him," Autry said. "I've heard that LSU doesn't really recruit in Georgia, so them coming to our school and reaching out to me, that really caught my attention."
This being the first time Autry had heard from LSU, he isn't familiar with what the Tigers have to offer. All he knows is what he's seen on television and the reputation they have as a national power.
"I watch them play, but other than that, LSU is a good school," Autry said. "I've been watching them since I was a little kid, and they're a good team. They're well-coached, and the coaches seem cool."
With Carter also high on LSU's wish list, Autry intends to make a visit to Baton Rouge some time in the near future. When he does, he'll have a checklist of things he'll be looking for.
"If they have my major (finance or mechanical engineering), what are the chances of me starting as a true freshman, do I see myself in that type of offense," Autry said. "All that stuff matters to me, and that's what I'll be looking for."
With an offer list well into double digits, Autry has received interest from coast-to-coast. With all that attention though, Autry said he hasn't started to narrow things down, and is in no hurry to make a commitment.
"I don't have a list of top schools because I feel like it's too early for that," Autry said. "I'm just taking it day-by-day…I really haven't had time to think about when I'm going to commit yet."
