ESPN 300 DT McDowell names leader

LAKE OSWEGO, Ore. -- ESPN 300 defensive tackle Garrald McDowell (Covington, La./Covington) received good news recently when his favorite childhood team, LSU, extended a scholarship.

The 6-foot-1, 257-pound defensive tackle, who has offers from Alabama, Ole Miss, Florida and many others, said it was a big relief to receive the offer from his home-state team.
