'15 RB reels in LSU offer

Quite a few '13 prospects are still waiting for their first offer, but '15 RB Nicholas Brossette already has his - from the local LSU Tigers. Brossette has been a starter since the eighth grade at University Lab, which is located on the LSU campus, and he talks about getting his first offer inside.

Nicholas Brossette went for over 1,000 yards each of the past two years at University Lab, a small-school (Class 2A) power that went 12-1 last year, and Brossette recently got recognized for his hard work with an offer from LSU.

"I got offered at the Bayou Picnic," said Brossette, referring to LSU's on-campus get-together last Saturday. "My brother and I went to shake hands with Coach (Les) Miles, and he pulled me to the side and offered.

"I went back up there yesterday with my brother and mom to meet with Coach Miles. He wants me to come to their school and be the face of the 2015 class. I really like LSU. If I go there, I could fly right in because I already know everybody."

Brossette will be at LSU again tomorrow for the first session of summer camp.

"I'll be there with (teammates) Jarrod Franklin ('13 safety), Tim Williams (four-star '13 DE) and Garrett Brumfield ('14 OL/DL)," said Brossette.

"It's very exciting to get my first offer. It felt pretty good. LSU is at the top of my list, and I'm really excited."

University lost productive WR Tristan Cooper, who transferred to Plant HS in Tampa, Florida, which means that Brossette should get even more work this fall.

He loves to run behind the blocking of Brumfield, a 6-foot-3, 275-pounder who will play both ways in 2012.

"We should be very good," said Brossette. "We're looking to go to state and win it. My speed has gotten better; I've been cutting some pounds and am now at 203 lbs. I'm more explosive."

Brossette and Brumfield both performed well at the National Underclassmen Combine 5-Star Showcase held earlier this year at Zachary High School north of Baton Rouge.

Their head coach at U-High is Chad Mahaffey.
