Four-star wide receiver Stephen Sullivan announced his commitment to LSU during a ceremony at high school, Donaldsonville High in Louisiana.
Sullivan thanked his family, teammates and coaches pulled out a Tigers hat from a wrapped box with a bow and then donned a purple LSU warm-up jacket.
The 6-5, 230-pound Sullivan, ranked as the No. 17 wide receiver and No. 101 player overall in the 247Sports Composite rankings, had been down to TCU, LSU and Mississippi State. Scout.com has Sullivan ranked as the No. 7 wide receiver in the nation and No. 51 overall.
Sullivan is an early enrollee so he needed to make a decision.
Sullivan initially committed to LSU in February 2014 but then decommitted last spring. During a five-week stretch this season, Sullivan visited Mississippi State on Nov. 14, TCU on Nov. 27 and LSU on Dec. 11.
Sullivan is an in-state recruit, but his parents now live in Fort Worth, Texas, so keeping him away from TCU, which many observers thought was the new frontrunner, is a substantial get for LSU coach Les Miles and offensive coordinator Cam Cameron.
