Strong camp showing

Sentimore is one of Louisiana's top DT's

Destrehan High defensive tackle Darrington Sentimore camped with the Tigers last weekend, and to say the visit left a mark on his recruitment process would be an understatement.

Without an offer from LSU, Sentimore (6-2 ½, 270, 4.72) has kept Alabama near the top of his list for most of his recruitment process, as the Crimson Tide reportedly has both an offer on the table and Sentimore near the top of his defensive line target list.


Yet, after spending a couple of days in Baton Rouge and showing the Tiger coaching staff where he stands both physically and academically, Sentimore has a new take on the process.


“It is all LSU now,” Sentimore said. “I have no doubt about it. I haven’t even been talking to Alabama. I am just ready to get that offer.”

While the LSU baseball team finished off UC-Irvine in the final days at Alex Box, Sentimore worked out just across the road, and he feels his performance only improved his stock.


“The coaches loved me,” Sentimore said. “I did my thing and nobody could really hold me down. It just went really well.”


With Sentimore enrolled in summer school in order to become academically eligible for the fall, many felt that an offer would be extended by the Tigers sometime during the four-star’s senior season.


Yet, fresh off of a dynamic performance at the Tiger’s camp, Sentimore feels like as long as he stays on top of his books the offer should come even sooner.


“I definitely feel better now than I did a few weeks ago,” Sentimore said. “I don’t know when the offer is coming, but the coaches told me that they want me to come back to Baton Rouge in July.”


With purple and gold fever taking over Sentimore, the Destrehan defensive lineman said that he is anxiously waiting the days until the offer that has eluded him finally arrives.


“LSU is number one and it will stay that way until I get my offer,” Sentimore said. “I am just ready to be a Tiger.”


Note: Sentimore finished his junior year with 89 tackles, 10 sacks and three forced fumbles.
