Pulaski Academy (Little Rock, AR) linebacker Matt Stoltz made an unofficial visit to LSU on October 25th to see the game versus Auburn.
On his first-ever visit to LSU, Stoltz came away excited about his experience.
“I took an unofficial visit to LSU about two weeks ago, and I liked it a lot,” said Stoltz. “The campus is real beautiful…I can’t really describe it, but it is. The atmosphere was sweet…I didn’t get to see the pregame ritual they do, but it was still intense. LSU’s probably at the top over everyone right now because of the visit.”
Stoltz set up an official visit to LSU during his visit, and he will take it on January 16th. In addition to the Tigers, he plans on visiting Tennessee and Virginia. He may not take anymore visits following those three.
“Tennessee and Virginia are definites [for official visits],” said Stoltz, who said he may set up an official to Tennessee next week. “I’m not sure who the other two will be to – maybe Nebraska or Iowa or Oklahoma State. I’m not sure if I’ll take them. I’ll have to see. LSU, Tennessee, and Virginia are my top three right now. LSU is on top, and Tennessee and Virginia are on the same level right behind them.”
During the season, Stoltz has been keeping a close eye on how each of his favorites are faring this season. He watches each school’s verbal commitments as well, staying up-to-date on how fast one school’s class is filling up.
“I have been checking out how they are doing,” said Stoltz. “I try to listen and watch as much as I can, to see where I’d fit in. I also keep up with the commitments, because I don’t want to lose a spot if they fill up too fast. I keep up with this stuff, but at the same time I try not to think about it too much because the season wouldn’t be as fun.”
Though winning is obviously important to him, Stoltz basically just wants to go to a program headed in the right direction.
“I look to see if a school has all seniors, then that might be as good as they are going to get,” said Stoltz. “Basically, I look to see if a school has gotten some good recruiting classes in the past few years. All three of my favorites have gotten top classes in the past two years, so they are looking good.”
Stoltz says he has not talked to Virginia about an official visit date, primarily because “Coach [Al] Golden has not been calling as much...
