LSU makes final push for Tashawn Bower

By Dave Hooker

LSU has one good shot to land Tashawn Bower. That time is upon the Tigers.

Bower is taking his official visit to Baton Rouge this weekend. It will be his first visit to see LSU's campus so he's looking to learn a lot.

"Pretty much as much as I can," the No. 132 prospect from Somerville (N.J.) Immaculata said shortly after arriving in Louisiana. "Nothing specific since I haven't seen anything before."

Bower said he has developed a good relationship with his primary LSU recruiter, defensive line coach Brick Haley. Bower has taken official visits to Auburn, Florida and Florida State. He has said he will visit Auburn again unofficially just before national signing day.

Bower is rated the No. 4 prospect in New Jersey and the No. 11 defensive end in the country.
