Brian Kelly and the LSU coaching staff landed a commitment from transfer cornerback Andre’ Sam on Thursday.

Sam, a native of Iowa, La., spent the 2022 season at Marshall and played four years at McNeese before that.

Release via LSU Athletics:

BATON ROUGE – Louisiana native and two-time All-Southland Conference defensive back Andre’ Sam has signed with the LSU and will join the Tigers for the 2023 season.

Sam, a native of Iowa, La., spent the 2022 season at Marshall where he earned honorable mention All-Sun Belt Conference honors after racking up 53 tackles, 5.5 tackles for loss and an interception for the Thundering Herd.

Sam added eight pass breakups and recovered a fumble in helping Marshall to a 9-4 mark and a win over Connecticut in the Myrtle Beach Bowl. His top game a year ago came in a 26-21 win over No. 8 Notre Dame when he recorded 10 tackles and broke up a pass in the upset over the Irish in South Bend.

Prior to Marshall, Sam played four seasons at McNeese, earning All-Southland Conference honors in 2020 and 2021.

In four years with the Cowboys, Sam accumulated 179 tackles, 4.5 tackles for loss and five interceptions.

Sam earned all-state honors at wide receiver and kick returner during his prep career at Iowa High School. He caught 48 passes for 775 yards and 11 TDs as a senior, helping Iowa reach the Class 3A quarterfinals that year. For his career, he hauled in 178 passes for 2,593 yards and 31 touchdowns.

Great story , keep ‘em coming coach. Some guys bloom late. I trust Kelly can tell whether or not his game can matchup with the SEC.

If he’s from Iowa he must have a nice duck lease. Welcome back home.

Id be satisfied with that as long as he make the roster as an udfa. A udfa makes alot more than what i make as a program manager at my company. They get bigger raises than i get as well.

His draft ceiling has nothing to do with his LSU tenure.

He's an older guy who will have a calming effect on the younger players. He's also played against D1 competition and handled himself very well. Leadership is invaluable in a locker room.
