LSU was seemingly out of the running for one of Louisiana’s top prospects.
But the Tigers are not done yet.
Four-star cornerback and highly coveted SEC target Shyheim Carter made a trip to LSU on Monday, a source told NOLA.com’s James Smith.
Carter, the nation’s No. 9 cornerback, could possibly making up another trip to Baton Rouge, La., sometime this week, according to Smith.
The 6-foot, 190-pound prospect from Kentwood High School (La.) has long been connected to Alabama, UGA, Ole Miss and Miami. He de-committed from Alabama back in August.
Carter unofficially visited LSU twice this fall — in September and October. He is tentatively scheduled to make his third official visit to Ole Miss this weekend, though those plans seemingly could change.
Carter has two children, and Smith suggested that could play a role in the cornerback’s decision. Kentwood is just more than a hour away from LSU’s campus.
LSU defensive line coach Ed Orgeron and defensive backs Corey Raymond have courted Carter, and it appears as if their pitch has gotten through to the state’s No. 5 prospect.
