LSU is bringing in yet another important prospect for a visit on Thursday.
Derek Stingley Jr., the No. 1 cornerback in Louisiana for the Class of 2019, will make a return trip back to Baton Rouge to check in with the Tigers’ coaching staff.
The 6-foot, 170-pound prospect from the Dunham School (La.) is a one-time LSU commit, who reopened his recruitment back in the spring amid a flurry of new offers rolling in.
Stingley, a 4-star recruit, is ranked as a top-200 prospect in the 2019 class. He’s the No. 11 corner and a top-10 prospect in the state, according to the 247Sports Composite rankings.
Stingley earned his offer from LSU last June during the elite high school camp and committed on the spot. He de-committed in April and now boasts an impressive offer sheet which includes schools such as Florida, Florida State, UGA and Texas, among others.
Stingley recently made stops at both Florida and Texas. He has also frequented LSU’s campus this summer, attending the Tigers’ 7-on-7 tournament and elite high school in June. Stingley was also at LSU on his birthday when he received a unique gift from the coaching staff.
LSU defensive backs coach Corey Raymond has worked furiously to continue to improve his relationship with the prized 2019 corner, which has resulted in several visits this summer.
LSU is also hosting 5-star wide receiver Terrace Marshall Jr. for an unofficial visit with his family on Thursday. The staff has hosted 2018 4-star WR Lawrence Keys III and 2020 WR Koy Moore in the past week.
