Malachi Dupre Commits to LSU

The composite 5-star wide receiver from John Curtis made the nail biting from LSU fans come to an end when he announced his intentions to sign with LSU. Let's just say the QBs at LSU are much happier.

Probably the biggest remaining recruit on the board, wide receiver Malachi Dupre gave Cam Cameron, Adam Henry, whoever the starting QB is next year and LSU fans even more reason to be excited about the offense for next season.  Going on the rule set at John Curtis, Dupre wasn't allowed to officially visit anywhere until their season is over, leaving his recruitment up in the air until late December.  After scares from the likes of Florida State, UCLA and Alabama, Dupre decided to stay home.  You could tell he had a leaning interest in LSU over the season when he unofficially visited Baton Rouge on several occasions, even becoming a recruiter for Adoree Jackson, and that interest held strong throughout the battle.

What Dupre Bring To Baton Rouge

What LSU will be getting is arguably the most complete wide receiver in the 2014 class.  His combination of size, speed, athleticism, and other attributes featured in a wide receiver is unparalleled.  He has a real effortless stride that makes it look like he's sometimes floating.  Dupre will quickly challenge for a starting spot on the offense and should be lining up there in Houston for the season opener barring injury.

Dupre has the makings of a star receiver and could be the next great one to come out of Baton Rouge.  His combination of ability gives him the making of a memorable receiver and it should be fun watching him in the purple and gold.
