Three-star OT commits to LSU 

July, 19, 2011
Lifelong LSU fan Derek Edinburgh (New Orleans/Edna Karr) finally got the offer he was hoping for. It didn't take him long to commit to the Tigers and head coach Les Miles.

"I camped there twice this summer," Edinburgh said. "Coach Miles sat me and my family down and recently offered me a scholarship. I went home and evaluated everything with my parents and coaches. Today, I decided it was in my best interest to commit to LSU."

Edinburgh, 6-foot- and 337 pounds, had a ton of options with offers from teams such as Colorado, Mississippi State, Arizona, Arkansas, California, Nebraska, Pittsburgh, Utah and Vanderbilt. In the end, he couldn't pass up on his dream.
