Batty: Southeastern Louisiana invited me to tour their campus and facilities on their junior day this past fall. 

I had an unofficial visit at Louisiana Tech while my team played in West Monroe in March. They invited me to watch them play then after the game, Coach Goff showed me around and talked to me. Loved the coaches and liked the facilities.  Definitely would be an awesome place to play.

I played at Ole Miss this fall with Coach Raley and did not have one of my better outings but our whole team was given a tour of the locker room and facilities after our game. Coach Lafferty pulled me off to the side before the tour was done and talked to me. 

The fall before my freshman season I went to a showcase at LSU and after it was over Coach Sanchez talked to me and said they really liked me and were going to keep up with me. After the showcase was over Coach Davis and Coach Sanchez showed me around their facilities
