Its a big weekend for Pittman

Chase Pittman has half of his decision making process over with - this weekend comes the other half.
Pittman took an official visit to LSU this past weekend for the Tulane game and came away impressed.
"I really liked it. They beat up on Tulane pretty bad," Pittman said. "The fans are great and it's just a really great atmosphere down there."
However, he heads to Austin this weekend to get a good look at the Texas Longhorns.
"I am going there this weekend and am definitely looking forward to it," he said.
"They are playing North Carolina, so I will get to see Julius Peppers. He is a really good player. I also get to spend time with a lot of the people that I've gotten to know at Texas over the past few years. It should be fun."
Some have said that Pittman is a lock for Texas and that he might commit this weekend - especially since the Longhorns will be honoring his brother, who died in a car accident, before the game on Saturday. What does Chase say to that?
"I am waiting until after my visit to Texas," he said. "Then will sit down and wrestle with what I want to do as far as my choice."
"My girlfriend is going to LSU and that might play a part in my choice. And then there is the situation with Texas and how much I really like the people there and how they handled the situation with my brother.
"But I won't let those factors influence me. I want to go to the school that is right for me."
