Four-star LSU defensive tackle commit Jaquelin Roy announced that he has reopened his recruitment and has de-committed from the Tigers.

Roy, a 6-4, 300-pound prospect from University Lab in Baton Rouge, LA went public with his decision on Twitter Thursday night.


Roy originally committed to LSU back in September of 2018, choosing the Tigers over offers from Alabama, Georgia, Texas, Auburn, Texas A&M, Florida State, and others.

He is rated the No. 9 defensive tackle in the country, and the No. 2 overall player from the state of Louisiana for the class of 2020, according to 247 Sports.

No problem with this...look around a bit if you wish. Later, when you decide that LSU was your dream school, hopefully your scholarship hasn’t been given away.

Why is everyone crying over the decision a 17 year old made? Recruiting is a cut throat game. Don't put any stock to a verbal commitment. Wait until it's official, but don't get on a message board and take shots at these kids. Think back to when you were 16, 17 years old.. How would you have handled having all these big time universities coming for you every day?

They should really get rid of this commitment crap. It's all a lie for popularity. I long for the days when we didn't have to hear anything until Signing Day.

Better believe Saban is recruiting these top line guys heavily as he knows that's the key to winning when you can control the line of scrimmage. Don't know what he tells them, but they sure drink his old bald-headed midget koolaid.

Uhigh's head coach from last year (and several years before that) is now Walker's HC.

Well its clear the kids there still are influenced by the new Walker coach. Gotta cycle this anti LSU way of thinking out. Too many good athletes to lose year after year after year after year.

A man's word doesn't mean squat any more....or maybe he's just not a man yet?

He is a 17 year old kid. All of these schools are coming at him wanting commitments. He has every right to change his mind.

Hope he just wants to reap the benefits of recruitment. But this is one of the reasons I don't consider anyone a Tiger until they sign the dotted line.

I believe that recruits should have to sign a LOI if they 'committ' to a program. This would keep those that aren't sure from changing their mind 4,5,6, or more times.

Bama prints money. I doubt they have to wait on the IRS for help

Hey younglings... People WILL respect your decisions when you learn to respect your own. Learn the concepts of "commit" and "decide" and you may very well earn "respect."

That said, enjoy the free trips and tickets to games. If you did the work to put yourself at that level, have some fun with it. We want you to come back home as an actual 100% commit, with ink on paper.

Respect his decision? Hell he doesnt respect his own decisions, funny stuff!

Isn’t this the kid that Moscona interviewed and he repeatedly said he was absolutely 100% LSU?
Reply20 days
It's a process! He committed to LSU without reaping the rewards of being recruited. No one is gonna invite you to thier campus or give you tickets to big games if they know you aren't interested in going to thier school. Let him enjoy the process! He's earned it. He may very well recommit to LSU in the end anyway.

Absolutely nothing wrong with that. Except...if that’s what he wanted then why commit early in the first place?

Pretty sure the same comment was made about D Moses.

Recruiting is such a joke these days
Reply20 days
The only thing that is a joke is taking a commitment without a LOI. NCAA should not allow schools to accept commitments from kids who haven't taken visits and or younger than a jr in high school. No reason kids to make a commitment to a school more than 2 years away from going. Too young and immature
