Outside linebacker Michael Divinity, who decomitted from LSU in the midst of questions about Les Miles’ job in October, recommitted to the Tigers on Saturday at the Under Armour All-America Game.

Divinity is ranked as the No. 4 outside linebacker in the nation and the No. 5 player in the state of Louisiana by the 247Sports Composite.

Divinity is an early enrollee and will have a signing ceremony on Jan. 5 at his high school, John Ehret High in Louisiana, before he heads to Baton Rouge for the start of the spring semester.

“I’m sticking with LSU,” Divinity said in making the announcement, according to 247Sports. “I love it there. It’s home. Me and Coach Frank Wilson and Coach Les Miles and Coach Bradley Dale Peveto, we all have a great relationship. I told my mother and father that even though all the stuff happened with Coach Miles, I still wanted to be a Tiger.”

After decommitting, he had considered Texas A&M.

His recommitment comes a day after LSU hired Dave Aranda as defensive coordinator from Wisconsin. A vacancy was created earlier this week when defensive coordinator Kevin Steeler left for Auburn to replace Will Muschamp, now the head coach at South Carolina.

“I thought hard about my decision,” Divinity said. “But I had to make my decision for me and not worry about what was going on.”

Divinity’s addition follows the commitment of IMG Academy (Bradenton, Fla.) wide receiver Drake Davis, who announced for the Tigers during the ESPN2 broadcast.

LSU has the No. 1 spot in the team rankings for the Class of 2016, according to 247Sports. According to ESPN, the Tigers were No. 2 behind Ole Miss entering the day.
