LSU landed a commitment Wednesday night from 2018 four-star wide receiver Devonta Jason.
The Landry-Walker product becomes the Tigers’ third commit in the sophomore class, ranked No. 1, according to 247Sports. Jason joins quarterback Zadock Dinkelmann (Somerset, Texas) and athlete Justin Watkins (Citra, Fla.). All three are at least four-star prospects according to the major recruiting services.
Jason is the No. 79 overall recruit in 2018, according to 247. He’s also ranked as the nation’s No. 6 wide receiver and No. 4 overall in Louisiana.
“It feels great,” Jason said of committing to the Tigers. “The coaches’ reaction was great. Everyone was happy.”
LSU was the first and only school to this point that’s offered Jason. The Tigers extended that offer over the summer after a strong performance at camp.
LSU also offered his 2018 teammate Corione Harris at the same time, but he hasn’t committed yet. LSU has also offered another Landry-Walker standout in 2017 quarterback Keytaon Thompson.
Jason has taken numerous visits to LSU since the summer. He was on campus most recently for the Florida game Oct. 17. Jason measures 6-foot-3, 180 pounds as a sophomore.
LSU recruiting coordinator Frank Wilson, who handles New Orleans for the Tigers, is Jason’s lead recruiter. Only Miami, with four, has more commits than LSU in the 2018 class.
