Trey Palmer Commits To LSU

Tangipahoa Parish prospect becomes LSU’s first receiver in the 2019 class.

Now here's how you start a Wednesday:

After a solid run in the 2018 wide receiver class with Terrace Marshall JaMarr Chase, Kenan Jones and Jaray Jenkins, Jerry Sullivan and the offensive staff had the luxury of being selective with who they took in 2019. Trey Palmer became the first receiver on board when he committed after receiving his offer over a year ago. The 6-0, 179 -pound wideout is a composite top-25 recruit at his position and a top 10 recruit int he state.

What Palmer Brings to LSU

That music, just so inspiring. While Trey Palmer ran a 4.7 40 at The Opening Dallas Regional, Palmer’s tape shows a faster player and a dynamic receiver that lines up all over the field for Kentwood. With his shiftiness and ability to reverse field, Palmer is a continuous threat to find the end zone every time he touches the ball. After adding a little more wait to hand the SEC grind, Palmer can be a perfect slot receiver with his quickness and cutting ability.

What may be even larger than getting the commitment of the talented wide receiver is the fact that LSU is finally back in north Louisiana, a region they have had trouble recruiting and has turned into Alabama territory. Palmer and his family are also good friends with Amite wide receiver Devonta Lee, who LSU has been trending for recently, and his family. If LSU were to gain the commitment of Lee as well, it would go a long way in helping with the big fish of north Louisiana: Ishmael Sophser. Either way, Ensminger’s offense just got a little more dynamic with the talented receiver.
