Four star Donaldsonville receiver Stephen Sullivan de-committed from LSU on Sunday, he announced in a social media post.
Sullivan, the 12th-ranked receiver in the 2016 class in 247Sports’ composite rankings, said in the post that he “wants to make sure it’s the right decision for me and only me.”
Sullivan said his next decision on a school will be his final one. National Signing Day is schedule for Feb. 3. “LSU was my first D1 offer, so I guess you can say I got too excited about it,” he wrote. “I’m finally understanding what this recruiting process is all about. I realize I cannot rush anything.”
Sullivan, who committed in February 2014, said LSU will remain one of his “top schools” and that he “loves everything about” the school. Sullivan is the second commit to pull his verbal pledge from the Tigers over the last few weeks. Highly touted University High linebacker Dylan Moses de-committed on Aug. 3.
The Tigers 2016 signing class remains ranked No. 2 nationally, according to 247Sports’ composite rankings, which compile all of the rankings from the major recruiting services. LSU now has 18 commits in the class and is expected to sign 26 this year.
