Jeryl Brazil (Loranger, La./Loranger) will stay home and play his football at LSU. Brazil, 5-foot-10 and 180 pounds, committed to the Tigers over Southern Miss.

"I just committed to LSU," Brazil said. "I like the program. It's a state school and I think I can fit in with them. It's a place where I really felt at home. I really like Coach [Les] Miles. He's a great coach. I like the whole staff."

Brazil says he may get an opportunity to play on both sides of the ball.
