Batiste back on the open market

12/18/2011

Jordan Batiste (Lutcher, La./Lutcher) is back on the open recruiting market. This three-star defensive back prospect had previously been committed to Ole Miss.

“I am no longer committed to Ole Miss,” Batiste said. “I just wasn’t comfortable with the new coaching situation. Right now I am looking at Arizona State, Louisiana Tech, and Tulane. ASU could be offering me soon. I have already seen Louisiana Tech and Tulane.”

Batiste, 5-foot-8 and 170-pounds, wants to enroll next month so he’s in somewhat of a difficult circumstance.

“I think I am good with Tech and Tulane because I have seen them. I met with some of the new coaches at Tulane and they seem like cool people. I may try and get to ASU on that first weekend in January. It’s a tough situation because I am a December grad.”

Batiste is the No. 76 ranked safety in the country and the No. 44 ranked recruit from the state of Louisiana.
