"I've been watching LSU since Johnny (Jones) has been back for his three years, I'm very impressed with what he has done with this program. It's a great honor for me to be involved with a program that is on a rise like this in a great, great conference with good young talent, but also with a terrific coaching staff and a guy that I just think the world of."
