Tennessee commit J.C. Copeland will take an official visit to LSU this weekend.
The 6-foot-2, 240-pound defensive end from Troup High School in LaGrange, Ga., decided to take the trip after receiving a visit from LSU coach Les Miles on Wednesday.
Copeland, who previously planned to visit South Carolina this weekend, said he's unsure if he has a scholarship offer from LSU.
Copeland said he would seriously consider the Tigers if he were to receive an offer.
"I would have to talk it over with my family," he said. "Either place I go is going to be great for me."
Copeland said he's heard plenty about LSU from his teammate Brandon Worle, a fullback who's been committed to the Tigers since March.
"He buzzes me every day," Copeland said. "He always says, 'You need to go there with me.' "
Copeland said he informed UT's staff that he would visit LSU this weekend.
He insisted he has no concerns about UT's lack of defensive coordinator or defensive line coach.
"(UT coach Derek Dooley) told me what he's going to do," Copeland said. "I'll stand by him 100 percent."
