Bad news this morning as four star, top 100 LB Erick Fowler has opted to stay home and sign with the Texas Longhorns.
Fowler was really torn over the past month. Reportedly, his heart was set on LSU but his momma really wanted him home. After his visit to Baton Rouge, rumors were that the staff did enough to convince momma, but in the end, the home town draw seems to have won out.
This is a pretty huge blow to LSU's signing class. Fowler is a top 100 player at a key, key position of need. Now LSU enters the 2016 season with even less LB depth. There's no two ways about it, this is a big blow to the 2016 signing class.
