Standout four-star athlete Shyheim Carter
from Kentwood, LA stopped by LSU's campus for a visit Monday that was not originally planned, according to multiple sources.

reports that LSU could be a potential landing spot for Carter due to the fact that he has two young children that he wants to be close to and because of his relationship with defensive line coach Ed Orgeron.
Carter has two children, both of which he plays an active role in helping raise, making it difficult for him to leave home. Another factor here is that LSU defensive line coach Ed Orgeron has built a solid rapport with Carter and those involved in his recruitment. The Tigers view him as a versatile prospect that could excel at multiple positions.
Carter, a 5-11, 182-pound prospect from Kentwood HS was originally committed to Alabama but decommitted and re-opened his recruitment back in August. He is a top 10 player from the state of Louisiana.
