High School Recruit Landon Collins Picks Alabama Over LSU and His Mother is Not Happy About it (Video)

Whatever Nick Saban said to five-star defensive back high school recruit Landon Collins, it worked. Collins was one of the most sought-after players in the country before Thursday night, we he announced his decision to enroll at Alabama after the Under Armour All-American game. The irony of the situation is that Collins is from Louisiana, meaning he has decided to betray his roots by not committing to LSU. At least Collins’ mother will always support him no matter what he does even if the people of Louisiana turn against him, right? Wrong. Check out this video that Kegs ‘N Eggs passed along:

Now that’s a diehard LSU fan.  It would be tough to find a more committed Tiger than one who is willing to turn against and embarrass her son on national television for announcing his plans to sleep with the enemy.  Granted, LSU will still have Tyrann Mathieu next season and he can play every position in the secondary at once, but this is a slap in the face to Tiger nation.  Let’s all just cross our fingers this situation doesn’t create another one of those dreadful half-and-half jerseys we have been seeing more and more of.

    This was a verbal commitment and nonbinding, so mom may have the last word after all.  Monday night’s game may make an impact on his decision as well.  Either way, he is headed to a top program.

    With a mom like that, I’d go to college out of state myself too!

    You don’t even know what his mother is like…perhaps you were thinking of your own!

    What the heck?  That was so ghetto!  At least support him on TV.  Then talked to him afterward!
