Brumfield gives fresh take

U-High offensive lineman Garrett Brumfield has been a commitment to LSU since April 2013. In this candid interview following the Under Armour All-America Game, the big man wonders why anybody would wait to give his pledge on national TV. Brumfield also talks about what position he'll play on the next level.

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. - In the midst of a day Thursday when seven recruits put the attention squarely on themselves, announcing their college intentions on national television at the Under Armour All-America Game, one long-time LSU commitment gave a refreshing take.

Garrett Brumfield, a 2014 offensive line pledge to the Tigers, was more than a little dubious in postgame interviews as to why anybody would wait until this late in the game just to commit in front of the whole world.

"I'm not going to say why do you need it on national television, but why," Brumfield asked, drawing laughs. "I'm not knocking anybody. If that's what you want to do, fine."

Brumfield went on to share the thought process that went into his commitment, back on April 20, 2013, between he and members of his family. He also acknowledged, compared to guys that waited until this week, that he's probably slept a little easier.

"That night was probably one of the best sleeps I've had since I was a small child," said Brumfield.

The four-star from University High School in Baton Rouge finished the HD video interview below by previewing his arrival at LSU, including which position on the line he's most likely to play.
