On the day Lafayette Christian Academy OL/DL Fitzgerald West Jr signed with LSU (alongside his close friend & LCA teammate Jordan Allen), we asked him how he felt this early into life as a Tiger:

LONN: How cool is it having so much Lafayette talent in one place? You, Walker, Jack, LT, Malik, Jordan, Sage...

FITZ: It's such a blessing.

LONN: Jordan was supposed to be at Penn State only a month ago, so much has changed! Did you ever feel this could happen? That Jordan could join up, too?

FITZ: I've always felt that he was coming. God meant it to be like this, I believe.

LONN: Fitz have you and Coach Kelly talked about your final position?

FITZ: I'm playing center.

LONN: Yes! LSU need one bad. Did you ever know Lloyd Cushenberry personally?

FITZ: No I don't know him, I believe.

LONN: So you want to play center? There was a ton of smoke during your recruitment from people saying you didn't want to play OL?

FITZ: I actually didn't, but I don't mind playing it.

LONN: So what made you think twice about playing center?

FITZ: The school I would be playing at.

LONN: Fitz, what are you most excited about when it comes to next season?

FITZ: Getting to work with my bros.

LONN: You feel like this freshman group could all start on the OL?

FITZ: Yes sir most definitely.

LONN: Who was it that really helped you feel comfortable about the vision of you at center?

FITZ: Coach Davis.

LONN: How did he sell it?

FITZ: He seen me playing multiple years in the league.

LONN: It's that OL technique mixed with a DT's aggression?

FITZ: I believe.

LONN: Fitz, what do you think about playing center with Walker Howard at QB?

FITZ: I'm excited about it.


WE LOOK FORWARD TO TALKING TO FITZ AGAIN, HOPEFULLY FOR A CAREER-SPANNING CONVERSATION!
