Lafayette Tackle To Visit Green Wave Saturday

Nothing really new. I'm getting a lot of phone calls, there's a lot of people coming by, wanting to set up visits

A TI staff member spoke with Lafayette (La) St. Thomas More High School offensive tackle Geoff Berniard, 6'8 310, 5.2 Monday evening.

TI: How's recruiting going so far, anything new?
GB: Nothing really new. I'm getting a lot of phone calls, there's a lot of people coming by, wanting to set up visits.

TI: How many visits have you already set up?
GB: I've got three set up so far. Florida State on January 23d, they've offered me already. South Carolina on January 16th and Tulane on December 12th.

TI: Are you going to take all five?
GB: Well, I'm going to set up a fourth. I may go to Tennessee if we can work out a time. I don't know if we can, though.

TI: What about the three schools you've set visits to already? What's appealing about those colleges?
GB: Well, I really like FSU. I've been thrre on an unofficial visit and know some of the coaches, a few players, a few recruits. The tradition, Coach Bowden. They've got a lot to offer.

TI: South Carolina?
GB: The tradition is awesome. Coach Holtz's reputation speaks for itself. It's a pretty good place, I'd be around a lot of pretty good people. and they need depth so maybe I could play early. I'm going to take a strong look at South Carolina. They've got tradition and I'm looking at the atmosphere, who'll I'll be there with. But it's pretty far away. My family's important to me, I'd like for them to be able to see me play.

TI: Tulane?
GB: The thing with Tulane is that my family is pretty important to me. If I don't go out of state, that's the only place instate that I'd go. I know a lot of the coaches, they're a bunch of cool guys. I know one of their recruits, the quarterback Scott Elliott. We talked a little.
