Anthony Schwartz is slowly preparing to make a decision on where he’ll be attending college. A key part of that is making these final visits before his senior season gets underway.
After making stops at Florida, Tennessee and UGA recently, the 4-star South Florida wide receiver will head to LSU for his inaugural visit to Baton Rouge.
Schwartz, who measures up at 6-foot and 172 pounds, is a top-150 prospect in the Class of 2018 and a top-30 wide receiver, according to the 247Sports Composite rankings.
That, plus he’s arguably the fastest recruit in the country, which was made evident by the 4.34-second 40 he clocked at Nike’s The Opening Finals in Oregon earlier this month.
It is important to note that the 4-star prospect also holds a track scholarship offers from LSU. Schwartz captured the Florida Class 2A championships in both the 100-meter and 200-meter races a year ago. He’s also the World Youth U-18 record holder in the 100-meter. In April, Schwartz clocked a 10.15-second 100-meter at the Pepsi Florida Relays, the best mark in the country.
Schwartz recently included the Tigers in his final six along with the Gators, Vols, Southern California, Auburn and UGA. The American Heritage (Fla.) High School standout visited Gainesville, Fla., on Tuesday and was in Knoxville, Tenn., on Thursday and Athens, Ga., on Friday.
It’s an interesting twist in LSU’s pursuit of wide receivers for the 2018 class. Florida holds 100-percent of the Crystal Ball picks for the Sunshine State product, but recently added its fourth wide receiver commitment in the form of 4-star priority target Ja’Marr Chase from Louisiana.
