O'Bryant makes it official for LSU

Posted on: October 14, 2010 12:36 pm
Johnny O'Bryant has been silently committed to LSU for a week.

The 6-foot-9 forward from Mississippi finally confirmed the news on Thursday.

"I'm going to LSU," O'Byrant told's Evan Daniels, and so now the prospect ranks 21st in the Class of 2011 is officially off the board. Again, the announcement came as no surprise. But O'Bryant's explanation for why he chose LSU over Ole Miss and Mississippi State was interesting because he credited the Tigers' "laid-back" approach.

"They never pushed themselves hard," O'Byrant said. "They were kind of laid back, and I kind of liked that. They didn't worry me with the phone calls."

So let that be a lesson to all coaches.

Aggressiveness and a constant push works with some kids, no doubt.

But sometimes less can be more.

"So let that be a lesson to all coaches."

Did it ever cross your mind that their might be a reason they were so laid back and confident? Why did other rather straight-laced teams drop his recruitment, do you think?
