LSU football missed out on signing four-star SDE Charles Moore, who inked his letter of intent with Auburn on Wednesday.
Moore was later quoted as saying that if he wanted to live a "flamboyant" lifestyle he would have picked LSU.
“Auburn wasn’t the place initially that I wanted to go to because it’s in a secluded, country area. I wanted to live a flamboyant lifestyle," Moore said, according to Tyler Horka of the Clarion Ledger. "But actually, going to college isn’t about that life. When you go to college, that 3-4 years is to set you up for the rest of your life...”
Moore added, “...If I was to go to LSU, me being the person that I am, I probably could have got in trouble or something could have came up. Things could’ve just happened. I actually feel like Auburn is where my blessing is.”

The Louisville, Mississippi, prospect made a late visit to Baton Rouge over the weekend.
