Donaldsonville High wide receiver Stephen Sullivan gave LSU an Christmas present a day late.

The 6-foot-6, 230-pound Sullivan announced he was committing to LSU during a news conference at the school on Saturday afternoon.

A four-star recruit, Sullivan is listed as Louisiana’s No. 8 player in the Class of 2016 by 247 sports. He is rated 17th nationally among wide receivers and 101 overall.

Sullivan committed to LSU before his junior season. He decommitted from the Tigers during the fall and announced last week that his finalists were LSU, TCU and Mississippi State.

Sullivan had over 1,000 receiving yards as a senior for the Class 3A Tigers.
