That changed on Wednesday when the Tigers extended an offer to the blue-chip from New Roads-Catholic of Pointe Coupee.
"I am going to be a Tiger," said
Bajoie, who selected the Tigers over
New Roads is about 30 a 35 minute drive to the LSU campus and proximity played a role in Bajoie's decision but it wasn't the only factor.
"You can't help but like LSU because it's close to home but they are one of the best schools around," he said. You name it and LSU has it. They have the facilities, the coaching staff, the fan base, and they put guys in the NFL."
The Tigers have sent a few receivers to the NFL in the last three years and the way offensive coordinator Jimbo Fuisher utilizes his wide receivers in the passing game was another plus for the Tigers.
"They like to use a lot of 3-wide sets and will get the ball in the receiver's hands," said Bajoie, who hauled in 36 passes for over 1,200 yards and 11 touchdowns during his junior season. "A lot of guys have been successful in their offense and made big plays."
Recruiting was weighing heavily on Bajoie's mind over the past couple of months because he was waiting for LSU to step up to the plate. Now that the Tigers have done their part, he said it is time for him to do his.
"I'm working on learning how to run my routes and just learning the position," he said. "I haven't played football long so I have a lot to learn and I can get a lot better."
With Bajoie now on board the commitment total has risen to 10 but don't be surprised if No. 11 is right around the corner.Note: For a sneak peak at Bajoie's highlight film that is posted on Google Click here
