Catholic-Pointe Coupee star Matthew Langlois announced Monday that he has flipped his commitment from Kansas State to LSU, a notable development for the in-state talent.
The 6-foot, 185-pound Langlois is the nation's No. 46 safety in the 2021 recruiting class, according to 247Sports Composite rankings, but he's made a versatile career for himself at Catholic-PC, where he also plays running back.
On Friday, Langlois scored three touchdowns on plays of at least 70 yards in a 28-22 win over Sacred Heart-Ville Platte. He had 10 carries for 192 yards with scoring runs of 71 and 74 yards, and he returned an interception 65 yards for a touchdown.
So far this season, Langlois has 49 carries for 545 yards and nine touchdowns. He is the first Pointe Coupee Parish commitment for LSU since former LSU linebacker Patrick Queen.
"After much thought and consideration," Langlois posted on Twitter Monday, "I will be de-committing from Kansas State and committing to LSU."

The three-star Langlois joins a recruiting class at LSU that now has 19 members. He is the second safety to commit to the class, joining three-star Khari Gee, an Atlanta native who is the No. 23-ranked safety in the nation.
LSU also holds a commitment in a secondary position from Nathaniel Wiggins, the nation's No. 7 cornerback.
