Les Miles and LSU got some bad news on the recruiting front when it was revealed that class of 2016 four-star linebacker Michael Divinity has backed out of his pledge to the Tigers on Wednesday.

While he has not ruled out the Tigers when he ultimately selects a school on January 5, Divinity still opted to back out of his commitment to LSU.

Divinity made the announcement on his Twitter page saying:

“I have decided to officially decommit from LSU. I want to thank the coaching staff and fans for the support. I want to take this time to make sure this is the right decision for me. I will be signing my letter of intent on January 5 at John Ehret High School.”

Divinity then said he will choose between LSU and Texas A&M. He has made official visits to both programs.

Divinity, a 6’2”, 218-pound outside linebacker from Marrero, Louisiana (John Ehret High School) is rated as a four-star recruit according to 247 Sports. The site ranks Divinity as the No. 72 overall prospect in the 2016 class and the fourth-best outside linebacker in the country. 247 Sports also ranks Divinity as the fifth-best football player in the state of Louisiana.

He also had strong interest from Florida State, Oregon and Arizona State.
