Auburn got an official visit from early enrollee quarterback and LSU commitment Lowell Narcisse over the weekend.
Saint James, La.--A very early commitment to the Auburn Tigers before backing off that pledge to commit to home-state LSU, four-star dual threat quarterback Lowell Narcisse was back on the Plains this weekend for an official visit to check out Gus Malzahn’s program along with his family.
Auburn’s top target at the position initially, Narcisse has a longstanding relationship with Malzahn and Rhett Lashlee and it’s something he said kept the Tigers in the race despite his commitment to LSU.
"We had promised Coach Malzahn that we were going to come down and see the place again to make sure we made the right decision," Narcisse said. "It went well. A lot of guys really emphasized they need a quarterback and how much I would mean to this team. I got a good feeling about it.
"Me and my family are going to sit down and talk about it after I take my visit to LSU.
An early graduate that plans to enroll be on campus in December, Narcisse will visit LSU next weekend before making a final decision.
Hosted on his Auburn visit by freshmen Kameron Martin
and Darius Slayton
, Narcisse said the young talent on the roster is something he's impressed with and will be a consideration for him.
"They feel like I have the skill set to come in and compete for the job early on," he said. "That's kind of one of my goals.
"I like the amount of young talent they have," he added. "They have everything except a quarterback. That plays a factor."
Planning to make his final decision in the coming weeks because of his plans to be on campus in January, Narcisse said comfort and trust are two factors that are really important to him and he sees both of those things at Auburn.
"It will all come down to who you trust," Narcisse said. "I think we (Auburn) kind of built that along this recruiting process.
"After I take my visit next week I should know more about my situation."
