“It was good,” McBryde told On3. “I just liked the intensity of the practice. It (the defense) was very fast paced, which is something I like.”
Kelly along with safeties coach Kerry Cooks, quarterbacks coach Joe Sloan and director of player development Jordan Arcement were those who chatted with the four-star target.
“He (Kelly) was just saying how he wants me to come to LSU. I like how he goes about his business and how he handles everything as a coach,” McBryde said. “Coach Cooks is a very intelligent man in his gameplan, which is something I like. Sloan is a good man to talk to. He’s also a very good coach as well.”
McBryde plans to visit Tennessee soon as the Volunteers continue to press for him. Ole Miss is another school McBryde said is challenging the likes of LSU for his commitment. He doesn’t have any official visits set, but said a decision is coming soon.
According to the On3 Industry Ranking, a weighted average that utilizes all four major recruiting media companies, he’s the No. 286 overall prospect in the nation and No. 27 safety nationally.
The Denham Spring safety is coming off a big junior season with 46 tackles, four tackles for loss, nine interceptions, nine pass breakups, four forced fumbles and two touchdowns on defense.
He set the school’s single season record for interceptions, which helped land McBryde All-State honors this past year.
LSU is the heavy favorite on the On3 Recruiting Prediction Machine.
