A pair of 2018 prospects from Landry-Walker High School in New Orleans, La., have de-committed from nearby LSU, both announced on Twitter on Saturday.
Four-star wide receiver Devonta Jason and four-star cornerback Corione Harris announced their de-commitments Saturday night after both had committed to LSU earlier this year.

Jason is rated the 25th best wide receiver in the country and the eighth best prospect in Louisiana, according to 247Sports’ composite rankings. He committed to LSU in April. But the Class of 2018 receiver still was taking offers from other schools. Among the schools who had also offered him were Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia, Ole Miss and Mississippi State.
His high school teammate Harris is rated the 29th best cornerback in the country and the 11th best prospect in Louisiana, according to 247Sports’ composite rankings. He committed in February to LSU and, like Jason, continued to receive offers. He had offers from Arkansas, Auburn, Florida, Mississippi State and Texas A&M.
The two Class of 2018 players may still very well consider LSU, but both are now officially back on the market as they enter their junior seasons.
