Three-star defensive end Jaquon Griffin from Rome, GA announced Monday night that he has de-committed from LSU and has reopened his recruitment.

Griffin originally committed to LSU in April during the Tigers’ annual Spring Game.

The loss of Griffin puts the Tigers at 18 verbal commitments for the class of 2018 with the early signing period just 16 days away.

We'll see how much he likes it when Les is at UT dominating the East his Sophomore through Senior years.

Well, he is from Georgia.

But, we should always pull for any SEC school if LSU isn't in the game. It is good for the SEC, !@#$ that. If it helps another school's recruiting it is NOT good for LSU. Plain and simple. End of discussion.

Yeah screw that bs. Would rather him go out of conference than to another SEC team. Unless your comment was meant to be sarcastic, why on earth would you want another sec program to boost their team up?

Bummer - now let's find another recruit that is as good or better to fill the spot

NO - not a 3 star!!! Guess we'll have to fill his spot with a 5 star.

Let the kid enjoy the process. Keep recruiting him as much as you every have and let the chips fall where they may..... Or just cut his family a check and be done with it

Writing on the wall when the other 2/3 of the Rome, GA trio decommitted.

I'm sorry, but this seems a bit like it was encouraged. I mean, wasn't he the third of a trio we were trying to pull, with a really big fish LB? We offered all three with the hope of getting the one. We didn't get the big fish.

Normally I’d say I’m not a ‘star gazer’ but it seems like he was just in the mix to get the other two. He has a very weak offer list. And that’s with a lot of exposure.

Gotta watch those package deals.

"Well, he is from Georgia" Rome is a lot closer to Alabama than it is to Athens. Fwiw.

Not very much

This is a “You should find another place to play” move

No problem with that. try your hand at getting a better offer...you can always come back to LSU later...if your scholarship hasn't been filled by someone else.

Best de-commit I can remember, kid should thank LSU for the 3 stars; he had 0 when we offered the trio.
Reply1 month
LSU probably encouraged him to look elsewhere

Rome GA? That's northwest near the Alabama and Tennessee borders. He winds up at UGA or Alabama

He did LSU a favor by de committing.

Actually, he did himself a favor!
