LSU commit releases statement regarding his recruitment
There has been a lot of uncertainty surrounding the LSU football program in recent weeks.
There should be zero regarding Rahssan Thornton’s commitment.
On Thursday night, the 4-star defensive end from Texas took to Twitter to set the record straight on his pledge to the Tigers.
“I just want to make it CLEAR that I am fully committed to LSU,” Thornton wrote. “From this point on my focus is graduating high school and preparing myself to make an impact in (the) LSU football program. My family and I decided a while back this would be my home.”
“I want to thank all the coaches that took the time and provided me an opportunity to play for their football program. Looking forward to attending LSU. GO TIGERS !!!!”

Thornton committed to LSU back in June and unofficially visited on Nov. 28.
Three days later, LSU special teams coordinator and linebackers coach Bradley Dale Peveto made an in-home visit to Thornton, along with Les Miles.
The 6-foot-3 1/2, 225-pound Thornton is the nation’s 16th-rated weak-side defensive end and the No. 32 player in Texas.
