Baton Rouge, La., was home to one of the top college football games of the season on Saturday as the LSU Tigers beat the Georgia Bulldogs. On hand were many of the nation’s top recruits, including some of the top prospects in the state of Texas. This includes Port Arthur (Texas) Memorial cornerback Danny Gorrer.
Gorrer, who is 5-foot-11 and 180 pounds, said he came away very impressed with the Tigers.
“It was a real nice time,” Gorrer, ranked as the No. 93 player in the state of Texas, said. “I wouldn’t mind going up there at all. I talked to coach Travis Jones and coach (Nick) Saban for a long time. They said they really want me bad. Coach Jones is a great guy. I could play for a guy like that.”
Gorrer said LSU is new leader, over Oklahoma State, Texas, Texas A&M and Oklahoma. He’s received calls so far this month from Oklahoma State, Oklahoma, TCU, Texas, A&M, LSU, Arkansas and Alabama.
“LSU is pushing up on top of my list,” he said. “The five schools I want to visit are LSU, Oklahoma State, Texas, Texas A&M and Oklahoma. I have offers from OSU, LSU and A&M. The coaches from Texas and Oklahoma told me this week that I have an offer and that those are coming in the mail after they talk with the head coaches.”
Gorrer said he’s not lined up any official visits at this point but will for sure visit LSU some time in January. He said the LSU coaches told him that they are trying to bring in all of their top Texas recruits for a big weekend in mid-January.
Gorrer has four interceptions on the season, including two pick offs last weekend against Forest Brook.
“I should have had three,” he said. “But I slipped and dropped the ball when it came my way.”
