It’s the end of January, and for most recruits it means finalizing one of the most grueling decisions a college prospect can make.
Not Patrick Queen.
The 4-star LSU commit knows where he will be playing his college football. With that, the Livonia (La.) High School All-State athlete used the first day after his official visit in Baton Rouge to give to the community where he’s from.
Queen spent Monday evening at a nursing home in New Roads, La. In a few hours, Queen got a chance to interact with several elderly residents there, exchanging gifts and also providing words of encouragements.
This wasn’t a chore by any means. This was Queen’s idea of giving back.
“You’ve got to start this early,” Queen told SEC Country, “and we’ve got much more to do.”
Of course, Queen is currently the lone linebacker commit in the Tigers’ 2017 recruiting class. He has been committed to LSU since February 2016, and in eight days will sign his national letter of intent, making his path from Livonia to Baton Rouge official.
Queen, an All-State talent capable of playing running back, linebacker and safety, is an extraordinary talent on the field. It’s actions like this away from it, though, that gives us the impression he’s got the ability to succeed in so many other ways as well.
Had a great time giving gifts to some wonderful people ??❤️ pic.twitter.com/d6ojAbPbGe
