Chris Hardeman: 2014 Defensive Back Decommits From LSU; Where Will He Go?
After committing to LSU in July of 2012, it seemed that cornerback Chris Hardeman would undoubtedly be playing his college ball for the Tigers. But Hardeman decided to decommitt from LSU this week, opening up once again a chance for another school to draw him to their school. It came as a shock to the Tigers, who Hardeman had helped recruit other guys to the school before changing his mind.
Hardeman is an ESPN 300 recruit for the class of 2014, and he is also among the top 250 by Rivals and 247 Sports. He stands at only 5-foot-8 but weighs 190 pounds, and he is noticeably muscular. He participated in The Opening this past July and was considered a very underrated prospect by many.
Hardeman attends Alief Taylor High School in Houston, Texas, the high school Chicago Bears tight end Martellus Bennett attended. The Lions finished 8-4 last season after losing in the second round of the Conference 5A Division I Playoffs. He was one of the leaders of a defense that held opponents to just 15.2 points per game.
After hearing the news of his decommittment, Arkansas jumped at the opportunity and offered him a scholarship. He also has standing offers from numerous schools across the nation such as Notre Dame, Georgia, Nebraska, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, Ohio State, Baylor, Ole Miss and others.
Hardeman’s situation just goes to show you that until a recruit signs their letter of intent the February after his senior season, they still have the option to choose whatever they may like. It will be interesting to see what happens with Hardeman as this all plays out.
