Report: Karl Malone Jr. Will Play Football At LSU

Basketball legend Karl Malone is long gone from the public eye, but a new generation has arrived on the scene -- his son, Karl Malone Jr., has committed to the LSU class of 2013. Karl Jr., or "K.J.," won't be playing basketball. He's been recruited on the gridiron.

"He committed with coach [Les] Miles this afternoon, about an hour and a half ago, probably," high school coach Ben Haddox told David Helman of GeauxTigerNation. "It's something he's been thinking about."

Malone Jr. comes out of Cedar Creek School in Ruston, La. He's a 6-foot-4, 290 pound offensive lineman, another big addition to an already mammoth LSU front line.

"There's a lot of pressure on these kids, at 16 years old, to make these kinds of decisions, and I think that's been weighing on him," Haddox said. "However, he has handled it great.

"He came in today open-minded, wanting to keep his options open. But I think once he got [to LSU] and had the experience he had today, he just felt like this is where he wanted to be."
