More Time Needed

While LSU received a commitment from one Louisiana wide receiver on Saturday, Bradley Sylve remained an available prospect after leaving the Tiger campus.

Throughout his recruitment, South Plaquemines wide receiver Bradley Sylve has maintained that LSU led for his services.

After being invited to an exclusive junior day weekend with the LSU staff in January, Sylve left campus uncommitted – though admittedly very intrigued by what the Tigers had to offer.

Earlier this week, when asked if a commitment could come during Saturday’s junior day, Sylve’s answer was a bit ambiguous.

“It just might,” he said.

After meeting with head coach Les Miles Saturday afternoon, the decision was put off just a little longer.

“I don’t know why I am not ready,” Sylve said. “I don’t want to make any decisions that I would have to go back on. I want to commit somewhere and be confident about being done with the whole process.”

Despite Sylve’s decision to hold off, LSU landed commitments from linebacker Trevon Randle and wide receiver Alonzo Lewis – bringing the total for 2011 to nine pledges.

A great start, but one that the staff would like even more if Sylve pulled the trigger.

“Coach Miles sat me down and asked me to go ahead and do it, and we talked and he understood that I needed just a little more time,” he said. “Coach told me that my spot was there, and he is waiting for me now to just take it.”

With in-state receiver commitments from Jarvis Landry and Lewis, Sylve’s name on the list would certainly give Tiger fans a reason to be excited for the future at the wide receiver position.

Of course, that is a message that the 5-foot-11, 175-pound prospect is hearing loud and clear.

“All the guys are telling me what a great class LSU can have with all these Louisiana kids, and I definitely see that happening,” Sylve said. “I am really feeling LSU right now. We will see where things go from there.”
