Needless to say, Memphis (Tenn.) Ridgeway running back Aaron Crawford was impressed during his trip to Baton Rouge for LSU's Junior Day event this past weekend.
"I was very impressed with LSU," Crawford said. "Their $20 million facility was something else. I don't know what to say. I was stunned with how great LSU was."
When Crawford arrived in Baton Rouge, he was given a lesson in recent Tigers football history.
"When we first got there, we watched a video of them winning the 2003 national championship when they beat Oklahoma," he said. "Then, we looked at the weight room and the locker room and the stadium.
"LSU might be one of the schools at the top of my list now."
The Tigers did not offer Crawford a scholarship during his visit.
"They didn't offer," he said. "I talked to the coaches and they were surprised to see me there, but they didn't offer yet."
Crawford has an offer from Mississippi State and has been drawing interest from Ole Miss, Tennessee, South Carolina, Alabama and Auburn, along with LSU.
This weekend, Crawford plans to head to Oxford to check out the Rebels. He will follow that trip with a trip to Knoxville to check out the Vols.
Crawford rushed for 2,242 yards and 22 touchdowns in leading his high school team to a 12-1-1 record his junior year.
