2012 ASU Football Recruiting: Davante Bourque De-commits From LSU, Heading To Arizona State?

According to, running back Davante Bourque's Father has told them that his son has de-committed from LSU to reopen the recruiting process, dropping the Tigers total number of recruits to 21.

Bourque, a four-star prospect, is now setting his sights on a few other schools, such as Tennessee, Nebraska, Miami (FL), and Arizona State. His Father, Kirk Landry, says it's nothing against LSU, it's about making the best decision for Davante:

"Davante just felt it would be best to go somewhere else," Landry said. "He's not scared of any competition. It's about being smart. He said he's going to college to get his education and have a good time playing sports. He didn't think he would have any fun sharing time with all of those backs."

LSU already has a slew of sophomore running backs in Michael Ford (123 carries for 755, 7 TDs), Spencer Ware (174-700, 8 TDs) and Alfred Blue (78-539, 7 TDs), as well as true freshman Kenny Hilliard and Terrence Magee. I see his point.

"He's not upset or anything with LSU," Landry said. "That's how they run their program.

Bourque has already schedule an official visit to Tennessee for Jan. 13, with his visit to Miami the following weekend. Nebraska and Arizona State are trying to schedule him for the last recruiting weekend.
