Patrick Peterson Reportedly Visited Texas A&M With Will Lyles In 2007

Patrick Peterson has denied having any relationship whatsoever with so-called street agent Will Lyles, saying, “I have never had any type of relationship with Willie Lyles and he had no influence on my decision to attend LSU, or any other school for that matter.”

He’s also claimed he never even visited Texas A&M and that Van Malone “had no involvement” in his recruitment.

But here’s a report from 2007 on AggieYell.com by Brian Perroni on a Texas A&M visit by Peterson. The eventual LSU Tigers cornerback says he visited “the other day,” talking up the school’s academics and facilities before saying he wants to take another visit to the school. And Perroni today tweeted that the “friend” mentioned in the story was Lyles.

And there’s more! Peterson is quoted as saying, “At A&M I really like the coach recruiting me, coach [Van] Malone. He is also my position coach and he is really down to earth and he seems to care about the players more than just in football.”
