LSU Football: QB Lowell Narcisse recommits to LSU

LSU Football has had a quarterback commit open up their recruitment again, only to close it shortly after – and we’re not talking about Myles Brennan this time.

Monday morning, four-star dual threat quarterback Lowell Narcisse shut down his recruitment and announced via Twitter that he would be committing to the Tigers once more.

A lot of fans were concerned that Narcisse was seriously considering committing to the Auburn Tigers when he re-opened his recruitment. After all, he did take an official visit with Auburn on the weekend of Dec. 2.

Perhaps the most interesting thing about Narcisse’s decision is that he never truly intended to leave the LSU Football program. According to the QB, he only made the move to force LSU to speed up their search for a new offensive coordinator.

“I wanted to help Coach O speed the process up by opening my recruitment and force him to move the process a little faster and he did just that,” Narcisse said upon calling in to ESPN 104.5 FM’s Culotta and The Fan.

So, it was no surprise when LSU Football named Pittsburgh’s Matt Canada as the new offensive coordinator, Narcisse committed right back to the program.

Narcisse claimed that he was “on track” to participate in spring practice with the Tigers in an interview with The Advocate on Monday.

“It came down to LSU and Auburn. I decided I wanted to stay close to home,” stated Narcisse. “It’s officially over.”

Now that the early enrollee is for sure a member of the LSU Football program once more, the Tigers are now No. 4 in 2017 recruiting per 247sports.com. The team currently falls just behind Georgia, Ohio State and Alabama.

Narcisse will be headed to Baton Rouge in January to join wide receiver Emmanuel Netherly, offensive tackle Austin DeCulus, defensive backs Grant Delpit and Jacoby Stevens, and defensive end Justin Thomas.
