4-star DL Jaquelin Roy commits to LSU

In a feature earlier this week on Roy, the Baton Rouge native admitted the pull of the Tigers weighed on him heavy.

“What I like about the Tigers is it’s home. I’ve been growing up watching them on TV. Glen Dorsey, Tyrann Mathieu, so there’s always that home team feeling. Once I started getting scholarships from other schools, I started liking other schools too. But it’s nothing I could do to get that home feeling away from me,” said Roy.
