BEAVERTON, Ore. — Patrick Surtain Jr. is no stranger to LSU.
In fact, the nation’s No. 1 cornerback is planning to return to Baton Rouge in a matter of weeks.
Surtain told SEC Country that he’s planning to make a second unofficial visit to LSU’s campus right after the NCAA’s Dead Period expires in the middle of July. This will be the 6-foot-2, 181-pound cornerback from Florida’s second visit to Death Valley in the past four months.
What is Surtain hoping to see on this visit to LSU?
“I’m just looking to get more involved with the players,” Surtain told SEC Country at The Opening Finals in Oregon on Saturday. “I want to talk to the players more, talk about the game and talk about how LSU is. I also want to find out what my role would be for them, if I committed.”
Surtain had admitted that he has been close to committing to LSU in the past and maintained that the Tigers remain his leading school at this juncture in his recruitment.
Surtain will likely hold off on a commitment until after the start of his senior season at American Heritage (Fla.) High School and could wait until National Signing Day.
The 5-star defensive back also revealed that LSU, Ohio State, Florida State and Clemson will all definitely receive official visits this fall.
