Between visits to LSU and Miami, Houston (Texas) Booker T. Washington offensive tackle Reginald Youngblood holds court on campus.
Before hundreds of co-eds during athletic period, Youngblood is the center of attention during a pickup basketball game. With his running partner Jeremy Broadway at Texas Tech for a mid-week official visit, Youngblood came up on the losing end of his game missing a few three-pointers while swatting away some opponents' shots.
As the bell rings, Youngblood has time to talk about recruiting and his trip to LSU.
"I loved it," the 6-foot-5, 280-pounder said. "I got there and we ate, then we went back to the players' room and played some video games. Then we watched the Auburn-Tennessee game. Everyone was rooting for Auburn because that would determine where they went for their bowl game.
"I was hosted by Nate Livings and we got to talk about playing at LSU," he said. "Nate said that he liked playing for Coach (Nick) Saban and really liked offensive line coach (Stacy) Searles. Overall it was a good trip."
Youngblood will be visiting Miami this weekend.
"Yeah, I'm excited," Youngblood said.
