LSU grabbed its first commitment for the 2013 class when Loranger athlete Jeryl Brazil gave his verbal pledge to Les Miles on July 20, 2011.
On Sunday, for a short time, Brazil’s status seemed up in the air.
After going to Twitter and Facebook with his decision to reopen his recruitment, Brazil said he wanted to take a second look at other programs, and listed off Ole Miss, Miami and Clemson.
But after a phone conversation with LSU running backs coach and recruiting coordinator Frank Wilson, Brazil has elected to remain a Tiger as he begins to take in Junior Day and summer camps outside of Louisiana.
“Keep me as a commitment,” Brazil said. “I hate the confusion I caused. I just want people to know I still want to be a Tiger, but also just look around at some other schools to see what is out there.”
Brazil said Wilson touched on a number of points that hit close to home.
“Coach Frank said that I can be firm to my decision and still be recruited, and he wants me to be up there this weekend to talk more about it, so I am going up there on Saturday,” Brazil said. “Coach Frank explained it to me in detail about me being the captain of the class and the first commit, and that meant a lot to me.”
With Junior Day approaching next weekend, Brazil remains LSU’s lone commitment for the 2013 class.
