West Monroe LB NOT an LSU commitment

Don't believe everything you read on the Internet.<br><br>Contrary to reports on other Web sites, West Monroe junior linebacker Luke Sanders has not committed to LSU.

West Monroe strength coach Casey Sanders, who is also Luke's father, says Luke is "sitting tight" on making a choice of where he wants to attend college. Luke met with LSU head coach Nick Saban in the spring and was extended a scholarship offer, but Casey says his son has not committed to the Tigers.

"He's not going to do anything right now," said Casey. "Luke's just a junior and he honestly just wants to concentrate on making himself a better player over his junior season. College is something that seems like it's a long, long way away for him, and he doesn't want to make decision now that he can't live up to down the road."

Casey Sanders says LSU is held in very high regard at West Monroe, and he points to the number of Tiger athletes the school has produced in recent years. Luke's older brother is getting ready to begin his freshman year at LSU, and Casey said Luke will be getting a lot of good feedback from him.

"There's no pressure on Luke to commit right now," said Casey. "Coach Saban told him there is a scholarship waiting for him whenever he wants to make his decision."
