Auburn isn’t done chasing quarterbacks.
Gus Malzahn and Rhett Lashlee — fresh off landing Jarrett Stidham — took a trip to St. James, La., to visit LSU quarterback commit Lowell Narcisse on Sunday night, a source told SEC Country. Narcisse is the No. 8-ranked dual-threat quarterback in the 2017 class.
The two Tigers coaches went in-home with Narcisse shortly after he concluded his LSU official visit. Narcisse’s mother gave the visit positive reviews. The 6-foot-2, 224-pound quarterback took an official visit to Auburn last weekend. The dead period hits at midnight on Sunday.
Despite securing Stidham’s commitment, Malzahn still would like to add an incoming freshman quarterback to the class. Narcisse is option No. 1 at this time.
As an early enrollee, Narcisse’s decision will have to come soon. He has been committed to LSU since May 2, though Narcisse was once an Auburn commit for a five-month span. There is a growing level of confidence on Auburn’s end that a last-minute flip could happen.
Narcisse will finalize his decision near the beginning of the dead period.
LSU still hasn’t named an offensive coordinator.
Auburn has the No. 9 class in the nation, which is fifth best in the SEC.
