Dual-threat quarterback Jeremy Liggins made his commitment official at a restaurant on Oxford's Square. The Lafayette (Oxford, Miss.) High School star was choosing between Alabama, Auburn, LSU, Mississippi State, and staying home at Ole Miss.

Any potential hometown celebrations were spoiled when Liggins spurned both in-state schools and chose LSU.

Liggins, with Mardis Gras beads around his neck, told the crowd that he was "100 percent" committed to LSU. The 6-foot-4, 265 pound signal caller joins a LSU class lacking a quarterback after Gunner Kiel flipped his commitment to Notre Dame. He led his high school team to back-to-back 4A state championships, including 32-straight wins. In 2011, he there for 1,678 yards and 16 touchdowns, while rushing for 953 yards and adding 18 touchdowns on the ground.
