TIGERS WIN!! PERRILLOUX PULLS THE TRIGGER
At a press conference at East St. John High School, Perrilloux pulled the trigger on LSU. Anticipation swept through the Argosy Atrium at the 10th annual Bayou Recruiting Bash as the news reached here around 8 a.m.
According to sources in Reserve, La., Perrilloux said LSU offensive coordinator Jimbo Fisher being retained by new head coach Les Miles was the deciding factor in his decision to come to LSU.
Thunderous cheers erupted in the East St. John library as Perrilloux pulled on an LSU cap. Regarding his other two possible destinations, Perrilloux said after Vincent Young's performance in Rose Bowl (5 TDs) that he would likely have to sit for two seasons on the bench at Texas. As for Mississippi State, Perrilloux said while Sylvester Croom seems to have the program pointed in the right, the Bulldog program wasn't exactly where it should be yet.
Perrilloux had an incredible senior season, passing for 3,546 yards (225/342) and 30 touchdown passes and running for 1,460 yards (226 carries) and 37 touchdowns. He accounted for 69 total touchdowns and finished his career second in total yards behind Brock Berlin with 12,705 yards. As a junior, Perrilloux passed for 2,600 yards, 29 TDs and only five interceptions and ran for 1,274 yards and 22 touchdowns.
"He's going to be offered by everybody in America," said East. St. John head coach Larry Dauterive.
"I do it all," Perrilloux said. "I can run and throw. I have a lot of time to throw and I have a real strong arm. I'm also real fast and the type of QB that everyone wants. I want to improve reading defenses and anticipation."
