LSU’s week got off to a rough start on the recruiting front Monday morning with four-star QB prospect Lowell Narcisse announcing his decommitment.

On Monday, Narcisse joined ESPN 104.5 Baton Rouge to discuss why he backed off his pledge to the Tigers. In short, it’s because he wants to know who will be his offensive coordinator.

“With LSU, there’s a lot of uncertainty there right now,” he said. “You don’t know who the offensive coordinator is. You don’t know who the quarterbacks coach is going to be, and it’s hard to go there and let someone coach you when you don’t know who that person is going to be.”

Narcisse’s recruitment is complicated by the fact that he wants to enroll in college in January. When asked if he would consider waiting until February, which would give LSU more time to have an offensive coordinator, Narcisse remained firm in his plans to make his decision for January at the Under Armour all-star game, Jan. 1 in Orlando.

Since Cam Cameron’s departure, Narcisse said running backs coach Jabbar Juluke and receivers coach Dameyune Craig have handled his recruitment. They however have been unable to tell him anything about the future coordinator.

“It’s hard to say because you never know who that guy is gonna be and what type of offense he runs and what type of guy he’s like,” Narcisse said. “They can’t really tell me nothing about who the guy is that’s going to be.”

Narcisse said that LSU remains a contender for his commitment, along with Auburn and Memphis.
