Brossette looking at official visit options

Baton Rouge (La.) University Lab Rivals250 running back Nicholas Brossette has been committed to the LSU Tigers for almost a year, and on Thursday he was one of several top prospects on hand for LSU's camp in Baton Rouge.
"It was fun just hanging out with guys and competing," Brossette said. "I was just getting myself better and getting ready for my senior season."
Brossette also competed at The Opening in Oregon, and last weekend he took a trip to Mississippi State with a few teammates. He has continued to keep in touch with the Mississippi State coaching staff and he came away impressed with what he saw in Starkville.
"It was nice," Brossette said. "It was nicer than I expected."
With the season approaching, the standout running back has a few more visit plans in the works.
"As of right now I'm going to take my official visits to LSU and Texas right now," Brossette said. "All of my officials will be after the season."
He remains committed to the LSU Tigers, and continues to see the LSU program as a great fit for his talents.
"It's close to home and I can stay by my family and stuff," Brossette said. "And I think it's good opportunity to come in and play."
Texas has also done a good job of establishing a strong relationship with the Baton Rouge running back.
"They've been recruiting me real hard," Brossette said. "They want me to come in and play. They've been straight up with me. They're not going to sugarcoat anything. That whole coaching staff is a great group.
"I have a good relationship with coach Strong and coach Robinson and coach Vaughn. They're really cool. We talk a lot."
Brossette plans to take all of his official visits five of his official visits at this time in the process, and he does have a few other options he is looking at in addition to LSU and Texas.
"I'm looking at Florida State," Brossette said. "I've been talking to them. Arizona State, Notre Dame, Alabama, and that's about it for right now."
Brossette is currently ranked No. 112 in the Rivals250, No. 12 among the nation's running backs, and No. 4 in the Louisiana Preseason Top 50.
