Da’Monte Coxie has long been one of Louisiana’s most underrated prospects, but other schools have taken notice in recent months.
Still, the three-star wide receiver has remained loyal to LSU, and left his official visit this past weekend feeling confident in his commitment to the Tigers.
“It was great,” Coxie said. “In all honestly, I enjoyed myself and so did my family.”
Despite maintaining a solid stance with his pledge to LSU, Coxie conceded that he still plans to explore all of his options over the final month of his recruitment to ensure that he is making the right decision.
Coxie has yet to hammer out all the final details of his official visit schedule at this time. The wide receiver picked up an offer from Alabama in December and plans to release a top three on Tuesday.
“Right now, I stand in a solid position (with LSU), Coxie explained. “I’m still just waiting and going through the process and everything with my family.”
“I left (LSU) feeling confident,” he added.
LSU wide receivers coach Tony Ball spent much of the weekend with Coxie, giving the East St. John High School (Reserve, La.) product an idea of how Coxie would see the field as early as next season.
“Basically, he was showing me and telling me that they (LSU) would love to have me there,’” Coxie said. “If I want to play, then I have to come in and earn it.”
One highlight from the trip was breakfast at coach Les Miles’ house on Sunday.
There, Coxie and his family got to see the other side of Miles. The 6-foot-3, 175-pound speedster said LSU’s coach had no shortage of jokes, which went a long way with both him and his family.
“It was fun,” Coxie said. “Coach Miles is really funny, and my family loves him.”
“It’s very important because I trust my family enough than when they say ‘I don’t like him’ or something like that, they are saying that because they see something I don’t. So I’ll trust them on that!”
