ST. JAMES PARISH, LA (WVUE) -

In the 2015 playoffs Lowell Narcisse wowed fans in the River Parishes with his return from an ACL tear after only five months out. This spring he's back to 100 percent, sans the knee brace. 

"It's a great feeling to not have a brace to limit your running motion. It's great to be out here, and be yourself again," said St. James quarterback Lowell Narcisse.

With his health intact this spring, Narcisse also nailed down where he'll play football for the next four years starting in 2017. The four-star dual-threat quarterback made the decision while meeting up with Head Coach Les Miles, and Offensive Coordinator Cam Cameron.

"They both kind of picked me up and hugged me, gave me a big hug," said Narcisse.

Robert Valdez took over the program only three months ago, but it didn't that long to realize he possesses a once in a lifetime quarterback.

"When you have someone like that it gives you a real good chance at winning every Friday. He's a great kid, he's a leader, tremendous competitor. When you have a guy like that, just let him go," said St. James Head Coach Robert Valdez.

Narcisse admits, even though he's verbally committed to the Tigers, recruiters from other schools still contact him. He tells them though, he's committed to LSU, and he just wants to focus on his senior year with the Wildcats.
