BATON ROUGE, La. -- If you see Jeryl Brazil run a 100-meter dash at less than you'd expect from the fastest player in the class of 2013, don't panic.

Brazil, it turns out, is pacing himself on the track this spring.

"I haven't been running much track in the outdoor season," Brazil said Tuesday. "Everything right now is about football training."

Which is, after all, what LSU fans want to hear from one of the prize recruits of the 2013 football class.
