I see you've added Jamaican brownies to the menu.
Great read on future Tiger Ethan Pocic. He's gonna be a great one.
my fav parts:
"They (LSU) run the ball so much -- it was a perfect fit for me," said Pocic.
"Pretty much, ground and pound's my style," the 17-year-old Pocic said. Spoken like a true lineman, the four-star offensive tackle said he enjoys, "just hittin' people."
[last year during his junior year in high school,] Pocic anchored a rushing attack that racked up 3,086 rushing yards and made a state Class 6A semifinal run.
During the recruiting process, Pocic and his family felt a natural connection with LSU coach Les Miles. Despite the Mad Hatter's fame, Miles "seemed very down to earth," according to Gary Pocic, Ethan's father. "He talked to myself, and my wife, and Ethan like we'd been friends for years," Gary said.
according to Lemont head coach Eric Michaelsen, Pocic's footwork could make him even more valuable in the trenches in 2012: "Sometimes you get big kids that aren't able to the things athletically that he's able to do," Michaelsen said. "Even the [Lemont] basketball coaches were after him -- that's how good an athlete he is." While his physical attributes are clearly impressive, Pocic is also willing to assist his team in other ways. "He cares enough to help out the younger kids with their technique -- the kids that aren't as talented as he is," Michaelsen said. Michaelsen cites that kind of confidence and leadership as traits that will help distinguish him at the next level. His large frame even provides him with significant upside and room to bulk up when he arrives in Baton Rouge. That last part should be easy -- Ethan likes Cajun food.
"Signing my letter of intent today to LSU cus I'm grad early”
2013 class is going to be a great one!
welcome aboard, big guy!
The best part of it all is that he is supposed to be an early enrolee in January!! That more than anything gives me a strong since of comitment from the young man.
Wait, he can sign an LOI already?
The freshman has size and strength. SEC will test them both.
