Porter will make his decision following next weekend

One of the most underrated players in Louisiana in 2011 visited Louisiana Tech this past weekend. Tyler Porter is that player and Porter described his visit to La. Tech as "great".

Porter said he is really close with coaches [Pierre] Ingram and [Stan] Eggen and as a result, nothing was a surprise to him on his visit. His primary focus was to see how he fit in with the current players.

Christian Lacey was Porter's host during his visit. He said he meshed real well with he and IK Enemkpali. He said he could not have gelled any more perfect with the players he met at Tech.

Next week, Porter visits McNeese State and said he will make his decision after that visit. Like Tech, Porter is close with the coaching staff there and wants to see how well he gets along with the team.

He will choose between Tech and McNeese State because they have recruited him the longest. He has talked to Louisiana-Lafayette but they have not officially offered even though they talk as if they have he said.

In closing he said, "It's nice to be close to home [McNeese] but also it's good to get away [Tech] and become a man."
