Brazil recaps LSU camp

LSU has more than a couple of '13 commits who have the versatility to play on either side of the football. Jeryl Brazil, Tre'Davious White, John Diarse and Rickey Jefferson are all capable on both offense and defense. Read further as Brazil talks about LSU camp (where he shined at WR) and more.

LSU's July camp got started last weekend and continued through Tuesday. Tigers commit Jeryl Brazil was there every day, working the crowd and keeping in contact with the LSU coaching staff and his fellow commits.

"The camp went good," said Brazil. "I like wide receiver and got to play that position. The LSU coaches talked to me about the position I'll play in college; they said I can play whatever I want. There's a good chance I'll get touches on offense (at LSU)."

Brazil's close friend -- four-star WR/DB Rickey Jefferson -- committed to the Tigers on Monday evening.

"That was the highlight of the camp," said Brazil. "That made my day. I'm excited; I've been waiting for him to commit."

Last Saturday, Brazil suited up once again for the Louisiana Bootleggers Elite team at the LSU 7v7. The Bootleggers won the event, but the mood was dampened early during the tourney when Brazil was sidelined due to injury (bruised knee). While Brazil sat out the remainder of the 7v7, he had fully recovered by the next day. Throughout the duration of the camp, Brazil got reps at WR during the one-on-one drills vs. the best secondary prospects.

"Will Likely and Rashard Robinson were two good corners who impressed me," said Brazil. "I think Rashard will commit (to LSU) soon. He's coming back to campus this week with his family."

Brazil will be the starting QB this season at Class 3A Loranger, which is coming off its best season (10-2) in awhile. The Wolves should feature a potent rushing attack with Brazil sharing carries with a trio of transfer RBs: Javeon Francis and Breland Dillon (both at St. Thomas Aquinas-Hammond last year) and Miquel Toefeld (Independence).

Surprisingly, Brazil says the Wolves may be strongest on the defensive side of the ball.

"I have faith in our defense," said Brazil. "It's really strong. Our offense will need to come together as a team and execute: that will be the key.

"Francis and Dillon are well-coached backs, being out of St. Thomas Aquinas. They will open a few eyes. Our offensive line is looking good, and they will be able to open things up for us."
