Sumrall, Miss. offensive tackle Tyler Graves picked up an early offer from LSU and then his recruitment started to level off. Now his recruitment has picked back up, but it's not the Tigers that are showing him the most love.
"I've gotten calls from Vanderbilt, Memphis and Southern Miss," Graves said. "Southern Miss has been calling every week, but the others called like once and that was it. Southern Miss has now offered me, they offered back around the beginning of August. I expected some more calls to be honest. I haven't heard from LSU at all. I did call coach Henson after their game with Tennessee and talk to him."
So where does Graves stand with the Bengal Tigers?
"I asked him after that game if they were still serious about me and he said they were," Graves said. "Then they don't call or anythingso it's kind of weird. I sent them some game film from my first few games because they wanted that. I was supposed to go to the LSU-Tennessee game but it got moved to a Monday and I couldn't make it."
The 6-foot-6, 272-pound Graves runs the 40-yard dash in 5.2 seconds, has a 330-pound bench press, 475-pound squat and a 30-inch vertical jump.
"I have been to two Southern Miss games so far this year," Graves said. "I am going to try to get to a Vanderbilt game in November. I also want to try to get in an LSU game sometime this year too."
Sumrall only had one game cancelled due to hurricanes and one postponed. Through six games this season graves has 30 pancakes and has graded in the 90's twice and the high 80's four times for his blocking this year.
"I don't really have any top schools right now," Graves said. "I'm not wanting to list anyone really because I want to leave the door open for everybody. I am just trying to check into all of my options and decide sometime in February."
