METAIRIE, LA (WVUE) - LSU picked up one of the top receivers in the country when Ja'Marr Chase signed with the Tigers on National Signing Day. Chase picked LSU over Auburn.
Chase told FOX 8 Sports in our sitdown interview he went to sleep with Auburn on his mind, but woke up and decided on LSU. Being close to home with family also weighed heavily in the decision.
Also, a lack of workhouse running back means a lot more passing in 2018 for the Tigers. Myles Brennan is the presumed starter at quarterback for LSU.
Chase verbally committed to Kansas, then decommitted. Verbally committed to Florida, but decommitted after the head coach got fired.
