LaCouture splits from Nebraska

Lincoln Southwest four-star defensive lineman Christian LaCouture has decommitted from Nebraska.

LINCOLN, Neb. - Four-star Lincoln Southwest defensive lineman Christian LaCouture has informed Big Red Report he's decommitted from Nebraska. The senior is in the process of visiting LSU this weekend. At this point, it's unknown what other schools are showing interest in the standout. A decision was made early last week, but the senior did not want the distractions of recruiting during LSW's playoffs run.

Rated the No. 13 defensive tackle in the country, LaCouture said it was a "personal decision" and at this point he's no longer considering the Huskers.

"It was a difficult decision, but I'm solid in it," said the 2013 prospect, who didn't want to mention specifics.

LaCouture moved to Lincoln at the start of the school year, after playing at College Station A&M Consolidated (Tex.) in 2011. At the time of his transfer, his third high school in three years, he said he would be in Lincoln "for a long, long time."

The Lincoln Southwest SilverHawks' season wrapped up on Friday, after they lost in the first round of the Nebraska Class A State Playoffs to Omaha North, 28-10.
