A Baton Rouge native, Guice would be able to stay right at home by signing with LSU. He would join a program in an environment he knows he's comfortable in, plus he would be able to see his friends and family on a fairly routine basis.
LSU is one of the nation's top programs, and head coach Les Miles has won 95 games in nine seasons, per Sports-Reference.com. The Tigers also have a great offensive coordinator in Cam Cameron, who understands how important it is to run the ball.
Finally, LSU's atmosphere at home games is amazing.
Guice will have to decide if he wants to get away from Baton Rouge. If he does, that doesn't bode well for LSU. The Tigers also signed stud running back Leonard Fournette in their 2014 class.
Guice told the following to Jason Howell of Rivals.com (subscription required) on April 14:
Those are my standouts. I haven't really eliminated anyone because everything can change and I can change my mind. Like this season a coach I was really close with could get fired or just leave and that would down my interest in that school.
