Shead is waiting on LSU

Adam Shead

After Adam Shead took in LSU Junior Day in January, the Tigers seemed to be sitting pretty for his services. Two months later, Shead said that the Bayou Bengals are in a better spot than ever.

The Lone Star State has turned out another solid crop of offensive linemen in 2010.

One name that headlines the group is 3-star prospect Adam Shead, and the junior’s offer list is getting more impressive by the week.

“I have 13 offers now, so things have never been going better for me,” said the nation’s No. 6 ranked guard with a chuckle.

Miami, Texas A&M, Texas Tech, Kansas, Baylor, Iowa, Iowa State, Colorado, Minnesota, Houston and UNLV have all offered the 6-foot-3, 290-pound guard.

Yet, the verdict is still out over the one offer that Shead covets more than the rest.

LSU would feel really good to get an offer from, because things fit for me in Baton Rouge,” he said. “After I visited for junior day I went back to Texas and felt like I could call Louisiana home. It just felt right.”

Where do the Tigers stand in the overall picture for Shead?

“An offer would be big, I will say that. I almost want to say that I would commit, but I know that I want to wait it out and be smart so that I know where I truly want to go when I make my decision,” he said.

“LSU is up there, though. I guess I would say Oklahoma would join LSU as my top two, because I think that the Sooners offer a lot of the same things that the Tigers can. I am going to be in Norman for the spring game this weekend, so I will know more after my visit.”

What about the LSU program warranted the Bayou Bengals a place in Shead’s top two?

“They are always winning, and the coaches seem pretty cool,” he said. “It all started with how I felt on my visit, because the staff and players made me feel really comfortable. The combination of it all has me high on LSU, for sure.”

When does the Cedar Hill standout plan to make the trek to Baton Rouge for another look?

“If I can get the turnaround down from the Oklahoma Spring Game I would love to get in for the LSU’s the next weekend,” Shead said. “If not, I know that I will be in for the three-day camp this summer.”
