First came a visit. Second came an offer.
After the LSU coaches stopped by Hinds Community College (Raymond, Miss.) last week, the staff was quick to extend an offer to wide receiver Stephen Guidry.
The nation’s No. 1 junior college wide receiver according to 247Sports, Guidry picked up an offer from LSU just four days removed from decommitting from South Carolina.
The 6-foot-4, 190-pounder from Morganza, La., played his final season of high school football at Livonia (La.) High School, where current LSU commit Patrick Queen is enrolled.
The four-star prospect picked up an offer from his hometown Tigers on the same day that fellow SEC West power Alabama also extended an offer.
Guidry now claims offers from 14 schools, including a handful of SEC powers. LSU, Alabama, UGA, South Carolina, Missouri and Mississippi State have all made offers to the budding prospect.
Last month, Guidry unofficially visited Mississippi State two weeks before ultimately re-opening his recruitment. After the LSU coaches made a stop at his junior college, a visit to the Tigers’ campus may be imminent.
LSU is targeting a short list of elite wide receiver prospects in the Class of 2017, including in-state prospects such as five-star Devonta Smith and Al’dontre Davis, as well as New Orleans standout Rayce McMath.
Guidry was an LSU target during his senior season at Livonia, but his academic standing hindered the Tigers’ pursuit of the wide receiver. With that issue sorting itself out at Hinds C.C., Guidry is quickly climbing up LSU’s wide receiver big board and may ultimately become a top target for the Tigers as they hope to bring him back to The Boot.
