Corey Raymond‘s tour through Texas continued on Tuesday when LSU’s defensive backs coach landed in Houston.
For the second time during the NCAA’s evaluation period, the Tigers’ coaches checked in on four-star safety Grant Delpit.
Raymond, along with LSU linebackers coach and Texas area recruiter Bradley Dale Peveto, checked in at Lamar High School (Houston) to see the nation’s No. 11 safety.
Peveto stopped in at Delpit’s 7-on-7 practice two weeks ago when the coaches were first allowed to visit prospects, which led the 6-foot-3, 181-pounder to tell SEC Country “it just feels like I’m their top priority.”
Texas’ No. 17 overall prospect in the Class of 2017 has previously told SEC Country that the Tigers are his leading school, and included them in his top 10 late last month.
Of course, since naming LSU his early leader, Delpit has picked up major offers from the likes of Alabama, Southern Cal, Notre Dame, Florida State and Clemson, among others.
Raymond has a longstanding relationship with Delpit and has spoken to the elite safety numerous times this spring, including during the New Orleans native’s two visits to LSU’s campus.
The visit from Peveto and Raymond is a signal that Delpit remains the top safety target for the Tigers, which should go a long way in ensuring that LSU is in contention to land the prized recruit.
LSU is out in front of Delpit’s recruitment, but has its work cut out to hold onto that position as we head into what should be a very busy summer.
