August, 27, 2013
LSU got a big boost to its 2015 recruiting class late Monday night as top junior running back, Nick Brossette (Baton Rouge, La./University Lab), and cornerback Xavier Lewis (Laplace, La./East Saint John) verbally committed to LSU.

The 6-foot, 210-pound Brossette is the No. 16-ranked player in the ESPN Junior 300 and chose the hometown team over offers from Auburn, Alabama, Florida State, Miami, Notre Dame, Texas A&M, Tennessee and others.

As a freshman Brossette rushed for over 1,500 yards and 29 touchdowns and followed that by rushing for over 2,100 yards and 44 touchdowns as a sophomore.
