Watch List LB Josh Mabin has favorite

By Bob Przybylo

Following a great junior day visit to LSU, Watch List linebacker Josh Mabin (Spring, Texas/Klein Oak) is a huge fan of the Tigers even though an offer wasn’t extended his way.

“I’ve always been a huge fan of the Tigers,” Mabin said. “The area is not that much different from Houston so that’s something I really like.”

Mabin said Oklahoma linebackers coach Tim Kish visited his school a couple of weeks ago but right now he has no plans to attend OU’s junior day on March 9.

One junior day he does want to attend is Texas A&M, but he’s not sure about his status with the Aggies at this point.

Not getting the offer from LSU has not discouraged Mabin, though.

“It’s more motivation,” Mabin said. “Not many linebackers have my speed. I can run side-to-side with the best of them. And then I just want to be somewhere with the best family environment.”

Mabin said Oklahoma State has offered him, but he hasn’t had a chance to visit Stillwater yet.
