The Tigers are expecting some good news today from yet another stud defensive back prospect, as Nashville product (but Crowley native) JaCoby Stevens is set to announce his college choice.
Stevens is a composite five-star prospect for the Class of 2017, with offers from every major program in the country. The 6-2 safety had originally committed to LSU in the fall of 2015, but decommitted during the November fiasco surrounding Les Miles’ job status. He appeared set to go to one of the other conference powers, like Alabama or Georgia, but with Austin Thomas’s return to LSU as director of personnel, the Tigers were back in the race.
Georgia had appeared to be the favorite as of the beginning of the summer, but LSU started to get more action in 247’s Crystal Ball predictions in the last few months, and has reportedly pulled ahead. Stevens’ announcement is set at around 2:30 p.m. CST. We’ll update you soon as we have the word.
