Gbadyu will take visits

Gaithersburg (Md.) Quince Orchard linebacker Bani Gbadyu took his official visit just over a week ago to LSU. The 6-foot-1, 205-pounder with 4.52-second speed has opened up his recruitment slightly since then and has decided to take a few more visits. Who will Gbadyu be visiting and what has made him want to re-open his recruitment?
"I've decided that I want to take a few more visits just because of the fact that I have the opportunity to find the best situation for me, my family and relatives. I also want to make sure I'm 100% certain that I'm going to the right place. I won't know what is out there if I don't look around, so I want to see if there's a better situation for me," he said. "I've decided that I'm going to be taking official visits to Penn State when they play Wisconsin on November 4th and Georgia when they play Kentucky on November 18th. I'm also possibly considering an official to Tennessee, but I don't know when that would be."
What does the Rivals250 prospect hope to see out of his visits?
"I just want to see how they compare to LSU," he said. "I know Penn State is a really good school that has only lost one game this year and they should have won it. They have a good coaching staff, education and it's a fun place to play. Georgia is undefeated and always a good program with a solid defense. Finally, Tennessee has a great program and possibly the toughest schedule in the NCAA. Overall I just want to see if any of them top LSU."
Gbadyu still has the Tigers leading for his services by a solid margin after a very enjoyable official visit.
"I went there when they played Florida and I loved it," he said. "Everyone treated me great and gave me a chance to meet the players, coaches and let me know that this is the type of team I want to be on. I love that they blitz and the coaches there made me feel really welcome. It was like I was at home.
"As for the game, the stadium was ridiculous and it's the loudest place I've been to in my life. People were telling me that I should wait until it's a night game because it gets even louder. Being there, I could definitely imagine myself playing there for five years and the crowd is filled with purple and gold everywhere. I also love the Cajun food down there."
The four-star prospect took a tour of the campus and met with many of the coaches.
"We walked around the campus and I met with the academic counselors," he said. "I also was able to hang out with the players to see what life is like and talk to the coaches. All of the coaches mentioned how they need me and how I can impact the team early on as it only depends on me."
Currently, Gbadyu still has LSU as his No. 1 by far.

"I love Les Miles as he is a role model and wants to make a man out of his players. Everyone has read about how the players helped during the hurricane disaster and I feel that shows a lot of character from not only the players, but also the coaches."Here to view this Link.
