"I committed Monday night," Voogd told Tiger Rag. "I gave them a verbal and I plan on signing in November."
The 6-2, 175-pounder visited the Tigers officially this past weekend and fell in love with everything on the bayou except for the humidity.
"It was beautiful down there," Voogd said. "I loved it. Everything was so close and it was just a real nice campus. The weather kind of got to me a little but other that everything was great."
Voogd is not your typical point guard because he can light it up from the outside which is evident by his 28 point per game average last season. As impressive as his scoring ability is the reason John Brady offered him a scholarship was probably because he is very good at getting everyone else on the floor involved in the offense.
Gonzaga and Washington State expressed a lot of interest in Voogd and many wonder why he elected to commit to LSU.
"A lot of schools on the west coast had their point guard but I was fortunate a big school like LSU was there for me," he said.
Voogd gives the Tigers five commitments heading into the early signing period in November joining Kentrell Gransberry, Tasmin Mitchell, Chris Johnson and Magnum Rolle as future Tigers.
Voogd's 2003 stats: 28 points/game, 8 assists/game, 7 rebounds/game, 5 steals/game.
