Jeryl Brazil Recruiting

Jeryl Brazil, the junior speedster from Loranger High in southeast Louisiana, opened up his recruitment today...

"I decided to open my recruitment back up," said Jeryl Brazil, who was LSU's first and - thus far - only commitment in the Class of 2013.

"I committed super-early (last summer) and want to see what other schools have to offer. I talked with my mom, and while she would prefer I go to LSU - which is close to home - she understands where I'm coming from."

Brazil attended LSU's first Junior Day event a couple of weeks ago and is unsure if he'll attend their second Junior Day on February 4th.

He's open to hearing from all programs.

"I'd like to be recruited by Miami, Clemson and other schools that aren't necessarily in the SEC," said Brazil.

The 5-foot-9, 175-pounder led Loranger, a Class 3A school in an area of southeast Louisiana known as the Florida Parishes, to its best season in many years in 2011.

The Wolves went 10-2 and reached the second round of the playoffs before losing a 14-13 heartbreaker to Port Allen.

Loranger's only regular season loss came at the hands of powerful district rival Amite, which subsequently advanced to the state championship game.

Brazil ran a blistering 4.35 at the '11 New Orleans Under Armour Combine. He's a nationally-renowned and defending state champion sprinter who plays multiple positions in football.

Yesterday, Brazil spoke with Landon Collins, the five-star senior safety from Dutchtown (Geismar, La.) who is committed to Alabama.

"He just told me why he made the decision to commit to Alabama," said Brazil of Collins. "He told me about the relationship he's formed with the Alabama coaches and that he'll be signing with them this week."
