Former LSU Tiger’s running back and top recruit, Jerryl Brazil is planning to enroll at East Mississippi Community College with the hopes of reviving his stalled Division I football career. Brazil was dismissed from the team this year following his third run-in with law enforcement.
“I’m going there for a year and in December I can sign with anyone I want,” Brazil tells NOLA.com, who is from Loranger. “I have no hard feelings toward LSU. What happened there was on me.”
Certainly it was on Brazil and he only has himself to blame why his career is taken this path, but personally I hope he stays out of trouble and matures as a person first and foremost while at EMCC.
Mississippi community colleges are known for their tremendous football programs, and EMCC won the National Junior College Athletic Association national championship this season and in the report from the Times Picayune has had 11 players sign with four year colleges, including two with the Alabama Crimson Tide.
Community colleges are great at giving players second chances to get back to the SEC or major college football, so hopefully Brazil makes the most of his second chance and maybe we’ll see him back after next season.
Brazil appeared in the UAB game this season and received two carries at running back.
