Kevin toliver ii 200
BRADENTON, Fla. - Cornerback Kevin Toliver II is just a rising sophomore at Jacksonville (Fla.) Trinity Christian, but he is already a name on the national radar. Despite currently residing in the Sunshine State, Toliver has many family ties to Louisiana and that, in part, led him to recently camp with the LSU Tigers.
"It was fun," Toliver said. "It was energetic, very live, and very fun. I like a lot of things about LSU. I really liked the defensive backs coach (Corey Raymond) at LSU because he gave me a lot of advice."
He admittedly has an interest in attending the national powerhouse and that is now an option as the SEC school has extended an offer.
"Coach (Les) Miles told me I had the offer," Toliver said. "I was really emotional when he told me. I was really happy. When Coach Miles told me I got offered, I felt honored."
The 6-foot-2, 180-pound defensive back says he didn't consider committing to the offer on the spot. He took the advice of family and coaches to wait it out.
"People told me to wait because I am just a freshman," Toliver said. "So people told me to just wait it out during my 10th and 11th grade year.
"I will probably decide right before my 11th grade season starts," Toliver added.
In addition to LSU, Toliver claims offers from Clemson, Florida Atlantic, Florida International, Miami, and North Carolina. He mentioned that he plans to visit Clemson during the upcoming season.
