Perrilloux Visits JSU:
Ex-LSU QB to Depart Today

JACKSONVILLE Jacksonville State received first-hand confirmation it was still in the running for Ryan Perrilloux on Tuesday when the former LSU quarterback visited campus.

The Gamecocks were said to be in the player's top two after being dismissed from LSU two weeks ago, but had no way of knowing until the quarterback made contact.

The visit was said to be more like a business meeting than the entertainment package reserved for high school recruits.

Perrilloux is ex-pected to depart to-day.

No decision is expected to be made until Perrilloux confers with his mother back in Louisiana. Bobbie Breaux told The Star last week that the family would have no comment until Perrilloux made a decision.

The quarterback also is said to have visited Alabama A&M. LSU officials would not release him to any non-FBS schools in Louisiana.

According to NCAA rules, Perrilloux could play right away if he went to JSU, A&M or a similar program.

The Gamecocks are still said to be investigating the circumstances leading to Perrilloux's dismissal from LSU.

Perrilloux took his last semester final at LSU on Saturday and he must be eligible there before he could transfer to JSU. The Gamecocks got caught in that snag when they pursued Joel Statham of Maryland in 2005.

If Perrilloux does choose the Gamecocks, the earliest he could be on campus is June.

NCAA rules prohibit JSU coach Jack Crowe from discussing the player.
