LSU has lost a commitment from its second recruit in as many days.
Junior athlete Jacoby Stevens from Murfreesboro, Tennessee, announced Tuesday that he had decommitted from the Tigers. He joins 2016 quarterback Feleipe Franks, who made the same decision the day prior.
Stevens committed to LSU in September but said the ongoing uncertainty with Les Miles’ future factored into his decision.
“All the stuff that’s been going on with Les,” Stevens said. “I just want to get the full recruiting process experience.”
Stevens was one of two recruits committed in LSU’s 2017 class. The Tigers are left with only four-star defensive tackle Tyler Shelvin from Northside in Lafayette.
Stevens ranks as a four-star prospect, according to the 247sports composite. He’s one of the top three athletes in the nation.
He projected to play safety in LSU’s defense at 6-foot-2, 190 pounds.
LSU offered Stevens after his freshman season. Though he lives in Tennessee, he has family who live in Louisiana, with both of his parents growing up in Crowley.
