Elite five-star wide receiver Shelton Sampson Jr. from Baton Rouge announced his final four schools over the weekend, including LSU.

His top schools are LSU, Alabama, Florida State, and Texas A&M. He will announce his official commitment this upcoming Saturday.

The 6-4, 185-pound prospect from Catholic High School is rated the No. 4 wide receiver in the country and the No. 3 overall player from the state of Louisiana for the class of 2023, according to the 247 Composite Rankings.

What is wrong with some of you clowns? Geez man, the world isn’t going to end no matter what this kid does so why are so many of y’all like that? I would understand if it’s like one or two but this is half of the posts? LSU doesn’t lose that many players they want people. Last year was a coaching change anomaly for kids leaving with uncertainty and the rival schools pounced on that. It’s not the same this year calm down.

Well BAMA and SABAN are proven while WRs under Kelly at NOTRE lame were pretty mediocre...who were his best guys? Miles boykins, fuller?

@SevensBlue, quick, name me all the star WRs at Bama that weren't top 100 recruits, BEFORE Metchie. Stop acting like Bama is producing WRs. Name me a WR BEFORE Metchie, that came in and actually had to be developed into a star? The vast majority of the WRs Bama has sent to the NFL and did good, didn't have to pack on a lot of weight, didn't have to improve routes greatly, and didn't have to develop their athletic gifts.

He is a really good young man and his dad was a former RHS wolf just a few decades ago. My feeling is he becomes a Tiger. Good luck to him and rewards for his work put in at Catholic High

It is crazy the amount of 4 and 5 star WRs we put out.

are these kids listing A&M because they know the Aggies will overpay on NIL so listing them is a bargaining chip?

Would be a huge upset if we don’t get the two uncommitted 5 stars left in Louisiana

I am becoming accustomed to feeling upset when Baton Rouge blue chips leave for another school

Young men wanting to get out from under mom's apron strings has more to do with this than anything. It would be great for every prospect to want to go to LSU, but some just want to spread their wings and now demand some cheddar to go along with it. For some, it is better to get away from home town outside influences as well.

A&M and Bama in the same Division cant afford to lose many more top La. Wr's to out of state rivals.
