Brazil sets first official

Jeryl Brazil leads his highly-touted Loranger team into battle tonight vs. a red-hot University Lab team that includes several elite prospects (Tim Williams, Garrett Brumfield, Nicholas Brossette). He talks about that inside and reveals the destination for his first official visit.

LSU commit Jeryl Brazil has his five official visits mapped out.

"I'm going to as many LSU games as I can," he said of unofficial short trips to Baton Rouge. "Next week I'm taking an official to Arkansas to watch them play Alabama.

"My other officials will probably be to Alabama, Ole Miss, Florida State and Nebraska. I don't have the dates yet for those."

Brazil and his Loranger teammates were open last week due to Hurricane Isaac. They'll step onto the field this evening vs. a talented University Lab squad that features four-star Tim Williams and acclaimed underclassmen Garrett Brumfield and Nicholas Brossette.

"I went to their game last Sunday," Brazil said of University's 42-14 dismantling of East Ascension. "They looked pretty nice. They manage the game real good.

"Tonight we'll need to execute on offense. I have faith in our defense. Our defense will show up. My teammates have confidence but not the big head. They know U-High is really good."

Projected as a corner (and possibly WR) in college, Brazil is the starting QB at Loranger.

"I'm not sure how much I'll play on defense," he said. "I've been focusing on quarterback a lot."

Loranger reached the second round of the 3A playoffs last year (lost 14-13 to Port Allen). The Wolves are expected to challenge for the state title in 2012.

University, or "U-High," went 12-1 last year. The Cubs are a 2A program.
