Younger brother of Philip Rivers chooses LSU

The name Philip Rivers will forever be associated with NC State.

Stephen Rivers? Not so much.

Instead of following the family legacy to Raleigh, Stephen chose a different path and committed to LSU last Friday. Athens coach Allen Creasy told Jamie Newberg of ESPN Recruiting that Stephen throws the ball better than Philip and is more athletic.

There's absolutely nothing wrong with Rivers choosing a different path, and the one he feels is best suited for him, but man, what a great story that would have been for NC State -- and what a great recruit.
