Travis Etienne, Louisiana’s second-ranked running back prospect according to Scout, decommitted from Texas A&M and will “reopen his recruiting process,” he tweeted on Monday evening.
Etienne, Louisiana’s 3A Offensive Player of the Year, rushed for 2,962 yards and 43 touchdowns during his junior season. The Jennings, Louisiana native, also punched in three receiving touchdowns in 2015-16 along with 250-plus receiving yards for Jennings High School.
LSU has not offered Etienne — a 5-11, 199-pound tailback with a verified 4.4 40-yard dash — as of Monday, but the three-star tailback visited LSU in July as part of the Tigers’ prospect camp.
Etienne committed to the Aggies on June 11 while having SEC offers from Alabama, Arkansas, Vanderbilt, Tennessee and a bundle of other universities including: Oklahoma, Tulane, Kansas, California and more.
With LSU looking to land at least two running backs in this class, Etienne could find himself with an offer if a player like Cam Akers decides to go elsewhere.
