The hits keep on coming for one of LSU’s heralded commits for the 2017 recruiting class.
St. James senior quarterback Lowell Narcisse tore the anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee in Thursday night’s jamboree versus Donaldsonville, he announced via Twitter on Friday night.
“I know this is probably what everybody didn’t expect,” Narcisse wrote. “My MRI just came back and yes I tore my other ACL. Thanks for all your prayers and calls. Go Wildcats.”
Narcisse tore his ACL in his right knee in May 2015 during St. James’ spring game but was able to return late in the 2015 season, leading the the Wildcats to the Class 3A State Championship game against Lutcher. He also suffered a bone bruise in his right knee during that game.
Before the injury, which occurred on a 17-yard run, Narcisse totaled 113 yards on 11-of-17 passing, including two touchdowns and an interception. He also had six carries for 69 yards.
Narcisse is a four-star prospect and the sixth-ranked dual-threat quarterback in the nation, according to 247Sports. He committed to the Tigers in early May, following his decommitment from Auburn in January. He is expected to be an early enrollee at LSU.
LSU is currently the third-ranked team in 247Sports’ 2017 rankings and has one other quarterback committed to the class, St. Stanislaus (Mississippi) QB Myles Brennan.
