Injuring a knee during his spring game, Narcisse is expected to miss his entire junior season and because of that felt like the timing was right for him to go ahead and make a decision. With each of his finalists continuing to recruit him hard despite the injury, Narcisse said he felt like he needed to go ahead and get onboard with his school.
“I felt that since I wasn’t playing football this year I should go ahead and secure my spot where I wanted to play,” Narcisse said. “Every school has continued to recruit me hard, nothing has really changed. The process has really been the same.”
Making visits to each of his favorite schools, Narcisse said for him the focus is on playing early in 2017 if things go as planned. With four top programs to choose from the four-star prospect said there is plenty to like about each.
The home-state school, LSU has come on strong since offering Narcisse in November. With his former QB coach Blaine Gautier now on Les Miles’ staff, the Bengal Tigers have something that nobody else has said Narcisse.
“Basically it’s the home team,” he said of LSU. “They make you feel at home when you’re there. It’s something that makes you want to stay at home.”
Getting an offer from Auburn early in the recruiting process, Narcisse has become very familiar with Gus Malzahn’s offense since that time. Watching them put points on the board in a system that fits an athletic quarterback, Narcisse said Auburn is definitely a program he’s very interested in.
“It’s one of the offenses that I could fit in and be a success in,” Narcisse said. “That’s the reason I would go there and play for Auburn.”
With a similar system to Auburn, Clemson fits the same category for Narcisse he said. Rounding out his list is Alabama. Getting an offer from the Crimson Tide in April, he said they’re also very appealing to him.
“It’s about the winning tradition they have,” Narcisse said of Alabama. “Every year they are winning on a consistent basis.”
Narcisse said he plans to visit Auburn this week for one final look at the Tigers and then use this weekend to break down his finalists and make his decision.
