CB Jai Eugene Changes Mind in Favor of LSU
Posted Jan 30, 2006
After announcing for Michigan at the U.S. Army All-American Bowl on Jan. 7, there were immediate concerns regarding whether Jai Eugene of Destrehan, La., High School would make it to Signing Day a Wolverine. On Monday those concerns were validated when the No. 1 cornerback in the country changed his mind in favor of staying home.
Saying that Michigan was still the best place for him, cornerback
of Destrehan, La., High School said however that he has changed his mind in favor of home-state LSU. "I just couldn't see leaving my boy," Eugene told
. "I loved the thought of going to Michigan, but in the end I don't want to be that far from Jai, Jr."
Eugene said he had informed the Michigan coaches of his decision. However, his father told GBW it isn't yet over for Michigan. "We've already talked to Coach English and Coach Jackson," Stephen Lewis said. "He is on his way to my house now so we can talk."
The 5-foot-10, 185-pound Eugene stunned most of the recruiting world when he announced for Michigan during the U.S. Army All-American Bowl game on Jan. 7 in San Antonio, Texas. Most analysts expected the No. 1 cornerback in the country according to Scout.com to initially choose the Tigers.
