LSU isn’t out of the running for Devonta Jason just yet.
The highly touted 4-star wide receiver committed to Kansas in February. But before he gave the Jayhawks any consideration, he was a part of the Tigers 2018 recruiting class. LSU hoped to win his commitment again when he came back to campus for an unofficial visit on Saturday.
The wideout originally made a visit to the school for the elite high school camp back in June. He did not take part in the event, but met with multiple members of the LSU football staff, including head coach Ed Orgeron, GM Austin Thomas and WR coach Mickey Joseph.
The Tigers are not the only team looking to flip the commitment of the New Orleans native. Mississippi State and Ole Miss are trying to get in on the opportunity to potentially add Jason to the roster as well.
If LSU is able to flip the 6-foot-3, 215 pounder, he’ll provide a great deal of depth at the wide receiver position - one that is of utmost importance for the Tigers’ 2018 class. Hecurrently ranks him as the 111th-best player in the 247 Composite, and the fifth-best in Louisiana.
Jason will be an early enrollee, and is expected to make a decision on a program by December.
