"My visit to LSU was awesome,"
Tolliver exclaimed. "It was great, I give it a 10."
Tolliver arrived in
Friday night with friends and his visit began on game day.
"We got to Baton Rouge around 2 in
the morning so I just went to sleep," Tolliver stated. "On Saturday my friends
and I walked around and spoke to some of the LSU fans.
"It was crazy," Tolliver added. "I
went into a recruit room they had set up and some fans recognized me and were

wide receiver does not disagree with that either.
