LSU QB commit Lowell Narcisse tears ACL
Injuries continue to follow Lowell Narcisse.
LSU’s 4-star quarterback commit suffered a torn left ACL on Thursday evening during the final minutes of St. James’ (La.) jamboree in Donaldsonville, La.
Narcisse, the nation’s No. 6 dual-threat quarterback in the Class of 2017, rushed for a first down in the waning minutes of the contest and suffered the injury while attempting to juke a defender. The 6-foot-3, 224-pound prospect went down grasping his left knee, then sought attention from the medical staff immediately after exiting the game.
Narcisse stood on his own power and walked to the team bus with an ice pack wrapped around his knee. He told SEC Country afterward that he felt OK, but would get a second opinion from a doctor today.
Here’s the play in which Narcisse suffered the injury:
Narcisse is 15 months removed from tearing his left ACL in the 2015 spring game. He re-injured that same knee six months later after returning to the field for St. James’ postseason run.
Narcisse is one of the two quarterbacks embedded in LSU’s 2017 recruiting class along with 3-star Mississippi pro-style passer Myles Brennan. All of his scholarship offers were honored after he tore his ACL last year, and the same is expected this time around as well.
The usual timetable for a torn ACL is six months, which puts Narcisse back on the field in late February or March. Narcisse is expected to enroll early at LSU, which means he should be a full go when the Tigers kick off spring practice next March.
