The battle for the nation’s top-rated wide receiver has come down to two heavyweights.
“It’s pretty much between Miami and LSU right now,” said five-star St. Martinville (La.) wideout Early Doucet, who had previously trimmed his list to those schools and Oklahoma.
“Oklahoma has a nice program, and I don’t want to knock them or anything, but it just wasn’t for me,” he said. “They have great people there and great coaches, but I just wasn’t feeling it.”
Doucet (6-1, 207, 4.4) was scheduled to visit Miami this weekend, but said he had to postpone the trip one week due to a family issue. He’ll be in Coral Gables on Dec. 19.
His other visit is scheduled for LSU on Jan. 16.
“I got a visit from coach Saban on Monday,” Doucet said. “I was surprised that he came down, being right after they won the SEC championship. I know he’s got a lot on his mind right now, getting his team ready to play in the national championship, so that makes me feel pretty special that he took time to come and see me personally. I guess I’m pretty important to them.”
With good reason.
The Rivals100 Team member capped his senior season with 850 yards and 16 touchdowns passing, 700 yards and 10 touchdowns rushing and 300 yards and three touchdowns receiving.
Although he's down to two schools, Doucet said he plans to make his decision "sometime in late January."
