Eugene said he would announce his decision at the game on Jan. 7. "I already know my choice," he said. "I can't say right now whether I'm going to stay in-state or not." He did say that Michigan defensive backs coach Ron English was the last coach he had spoken to. "He text messaged me to say Happy New Years, I talk to him almost every day," Eugene said.
While he is the top DB in the country, Eugene played quarterback for Destrehan this season. "I just had to play where I was needed," he said. "But it's defensive back all the way for for me in college. Some schools are recruiting me for wide receiver."
The 5-foot-10, 185-pound Eugene visited Michigan for one day on Nov. 18, and USC for the weekend of Dec. 16. He said that if he selects one of those schools, he would not take another official visits. He does have three remaining visits scheduled - Florida on Jan. 20 and Miami on Jan. 27. He said he also has a visit scheduled for Tennessee, but didn't know the date. He will not visit LSU officially. "If I choose a school I haven't visited yet, then I will take my official visit to that school only," he said.
