Elite prospect de-commits from LSU, lists Tigers, Texas A&M as finalists
Michael Divinity has been committed for LSU for months, but apparently his recruitment is now more likely to have a last-minute conclusion.
Divinity, a 4-star linebacker, de-committed from LSU late Wednesday night and said he will decide between the Tigers and Texas A&M.
“I have decided to officially (de-commit) from LSU,” Divinity tweeted. “I (want to) thank the coaching staff and fans for the support. I want to take this time to make sure this is the right decision for me. I will be signing my Letter of Intent on Jan. 5 at John Ehret High School. The two schools will be … LSU (and) Texas A&M.”

Both LSU and Texas A&M secured in-home visits with Divinity earlier this month.
LSU coach Les Miles and recruiting coordinator Frank Wilson visited the linebacker. As did Texas A&M secondary coach Terry Joseph.
Last month after receiving his Under Armour All-American jersey, Divinity said he was sticking with LSU despite the team’s late-season losing skid. However, he did indicate that the Aggies were coming on strong in an effort to make him flip.
“I’m still committed to LSU at heart,” Divinity told SEC Country. “I’m solid right now. Texas A&M is talking to me, trying to get me to switch over.”
Divinity is the No. 5 player in Louisiana and No. 4 outside linebacker in the nation.
