The top quarterback recruit will have a live tiger at his signing day ceremony if he commits to LSU.
Grant Gunnell, the No. 1 pro-style quarterback in the 2019 class, has been committed to Texas A&M since last June.
That hasn’t stopped Ed Orgeron from attempting to recruit him to LSU, though.
The Tigers’ head coach has gone as far as promising Gunnell a live tiger at his National Signing Day ceremony if he commits to LSU.
“He said if I commit, he’ll bring the tiger down to my signing day,” Gunnell said, with a chuckle.
The tiger, of course, is Mike the VIII (formerly Harvey), which officially became LSU’s mascot in August 2017. Gunnell — admitting that it’s highly unlikely that Orgeron would pull off such a stunt — said it’s not the only way he knows he’s the top priority for LSU’s 2019 quarterback recruiting.
“I text with him every other day, probably,” Gunnell said. “He’s texting my parents like every morning. He’s a great guy.”
Gunnell needs to commit to LSU so this can happen.
