Quarterback Jeremy Liggins from Lafayette (Miss.) High School won’t attend LSU.
“I have scratched LSU,” Liggins told 247Sports. “I was thinking about it real hard (Monday) night. I called LSU today and told them they were out.”
Liggins will now turn his attention to two in-state schools: Ole Miss and Mississippi State.
“I just want to stay in Mississippi and represent my state,” he said. “I love my state. I want to help bring a national championship to Mississippi.”
It would appear Liggins wants to help Ole Miss win that championship. He told 247Sports during his visit to LSU last weekend he was promoting Ole Miss to junior college wide receiver Cordarrelle Patterson.
“I was kind of in his ear about Ole Miss,” Liggins said. “The Ole Miss coaches asked me to keep an eye on him. I did.”
