Louisiana defensive lineman Jaquelin Roy reopens the recruiting process

February 28, 2019

Class of 2020 defensive lineman Jaquelin Roy‍ of University High in Baton Rouge announced Thursday evening that he's no longer committed to LSU. 

Roy announced his decision via his twitter page.

“I would like to start off by saying thank you to the LSU saff for all the support and treating me like family.  I am forever grateful for the relationship that I’ve built with them.  After much thought and consideration I have made the decision to de-commit.  My recruitment is officially back open.  I’ll be moving on from here.  I’ll also like to thank the Tiger fans for believing in me and making me feel like family.”

Defensive line is of the highest priority for Ed Orgeron and staff this year after falling short in 2019.  Roy is the highest rated prospect in Louisiana amongst the multiple defensive linemen with scholarship offers.

Roy recently made an unofficial visit to Alabama.  

It has been thought that the Tigers need a group of six strong defensive linemen in this class.  CamRon Jackson of Haynesville could very well end up as an offensive linemen.  The other current defensive line commit is Jordan Berry of Harbor City, Calif.  

LSU now has ten commitments for the class of 2020 with the departure of Roy.
