Sarasota (Fla.) Booker strongside defensive end Baraka Atkins is back from his LSU visit. Did he like it enough to push the Tigers into his top three?
"I tell you what," Atkins said. "That sure was a great trip. I would give it a nine for sure. LSU is moving on up now. They're all up there now."
Up there with Miami, Ohio State and Florida?
"You bet they are now," Atkins said. "I'm going to take my visits to those guys - Miami, Ohio State and Florida and see what happens."
Atkins said at this point, he's probably not going to visit Auburn and Virginia Tech.
"I just want to get this process over with sooner," Atkins said. "I know what teams I like the best, and it's going to be a tough choice."
Atkins said Marcus Spears hosted him on the visit. He said he didn't know of any players that committed on the visit, but did hang out with Brian Johnson from Tallahassee.
"He really liked it," Atkins said. "We're actually becoming pretty good friends. I met him last week at the Miami game, and now we're also going to the Cal-Florida game together. We sat next to each other on the flight to Atlanta."
