Brazil firm to LSU

After a roller-coaster day, Jeryl Brazil remains committed to the Tigers for the class of 2013.

LSU grabbed its first commitment for the 2013 class when Loranger athlete Jeryl Brazil gave his verbal pledge to Les Miles on July 20, 2011.

On Sunday, for a short time, Brazil's status seemed up in the air.

After going to Twitter and Facebook with his decision to reopen his recruitment, Brazil said he wanted to take a second look at other programs, and listed off Ole Miss, Miami and Clemson.

But after a phone conversation with LSU running backs coach and recruiting coordinator Frank Wilson, Brazil has elected to remain a Tiger as he begins to take in Junior Day and summer camps outside of Louisiana.

"Keep me as a commitment," Brazil said. "I hate the confusion I caused. I just want people to know I still want to be a Tiger, but also just look around at some other schools to see what is out there."

Brazil said Wilson touched on a number of points that hit close to home.

"Coach Frank said that I can be firm to my decision and still be recruited, and he wants me to be up there this weekend to talk more about it, so I am going up there on Saturday," Brazil said. "Coach Frank explained it to me in detail about me being the captain of the class and the first commit, and that meant a lot to me."

With Junior Day approaching next weekend, Brazil remains LSU's lone commitment for the 2013 class.
