Elite five-star wide receiver Shelton Sampson Jr. announced his commitment to LSU on Saturday.

The Baton Rouge native picked the Tigers over Alabama, Texas A&M, and Florida State.


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.

LSU now has 18 verbal commitments for the class of 2023 with the addition of Sampson Jr.
