Class of 2023 five-star wide receiver Shelton Sampson Jr. has committed to LSU, he announced on Instagram on Saturday.
Sampson Jr. is ranked as the No. 33 overall prospect and No. 4 wide receiver in the 2023 class, per the 247Sports Composite.

Sampson Jr.’s decision gives first-year coach Brian Kelly his highest-ranked commit in the 2023 class and his first top-100 commitment from Louisiana.
LSU now has two top-50 receivers in the 2023 class and three receivers total, with Sampson joining No. 40 overall player Jalen Brown (Miami) and three-star Kyle Parker.
