One of the nation’s top wide receivers is back on the market.
Four-star Jhamon Ausbon decided to de-commit from Baylor late Tuesday and re-open his recruitment, he announced on Twitter.
“I would like to announce that I’m officially decommitting from Baylor University,” Ausbon wrote. “I have much love for the coaching staff.”
Ausbon declined interview requests.
The 6-foot-3, 217-pound Houston native is playing his final season of high school football for IMG Academy (Bradenton, Fla.).
The No. 11 wide receiver in the country, Ausbon has been widely targeted by SEC powers in the past two months. He has collected offers from the likes of LSU, South Carolina and Tennessee.
Ausbon returned to his home state to visit Texas A&M on Monday, but don’t rule LSU out of the race just yet.
Ausbon is high on LSU’s wide-receiver big board, and the feeling is mutual.
Upon receiving the offer from the Tigers, Ausbon labeled LSU his “dream school.”
Expect new LSU wide receivers coach Dameyune Craig to help court Ausbon. Recruiting coordinator Ed Orgeron and defensive backs coach Corey Raymond have already helped with the groundwork.
LSU has some ground to make up, but this a positive first step for the Tigers, who have one of their top wide receivers targets in 2017 back in the game.
