You all must forgive me... I kinda feel where the mom was coming from. As a Louisiana resident and diehard LSU fan and alum, if you are an athlete (football mostly) from the state and LSU offers you a scholarship, you are expected to accept. No ifs, ands, or buts about it. And you will receive pressure from all sides to take it. From relatives you want to keep you close (mom) and those who don't want you playing for the enemy (Alabama.) However, she should have shown more tact in voicing her displeasure. And it is his own decision to make. That combined with his gf already being there receiving a full ride.
Playing football for LSU is almost every kid in Louisiana dream I guess he wanted and a change of scenery and follow that chick of course
Also i think the way LSU fans treated Jordan Jefferson after he got in that lil trouble affected his decision..Jordan lil brother Ricky Jefferson had a verbal commitment to LSU but he took it back and reopened his options after that Jefferson sh*t maybe alot of the kids was thrown off by that bullsh*t too. Just a thought
