Wednesday’s online edition of incorrectly quoted Perrilloux as saying in reference to his decision to choose LSU and pertaining to LSU’s returning quarterbacks: “JaMarcus Russell struggled last year and Matt Flynn is definitely not a better quarterback than me.”

Perrilloux’s quote, as confirmed by a tape of the press conference and other reports by media in attendance was actually as follows: “JaMarcus kind of struggled a little bit. Matt Flynn really didn’t play too much. Marcus Randall was a senior so I decided LSU probably was the best spot for me.”
