Liggins' situation clears up QB recruiting

Jeremy Liggins has enrolled for summer courses for Mississippi Gulf Coast Junior College, but that doesn't necessarily mean he won't wear purple and gold this fall.

LSU's 2012 quarterback commitment from Lafayette High School in Oxford, Miss., has been the subject of speculation all weekend since word spread he had opted to take the juco route after failing to qualify academically. But Anthony Hart, the athletic director at Lafayette and Liggins' former coach, said that speculation is premature.

Hart said Saturday that while Liggins has not yet met state requirements in Louisiana, he is still in the process of trying to qualify. He reiterated that again Monday morning, saying that the 6-foot-3, 270-pound quarterback can still report to LSU if he meets requirements in the coming weeks.
