Jalen Brown commits to LSU – 5 Star Receiver

Five-star receiver Jalen Brown announced he would be committing to LSU, making him the first consensus five-star to join the Tigers’ 2023 recruiting class. Brown chose LSU over Florida State, MichiganTexas A&M and Miami.

Leading up to his commitment, Brown received a flood of 247Sports Crystal Balls pegging him to LSU and was tabbed as the favorite by On3’s prediction machine as well.

According to the 247Sports Composite Rankings, Brown is the 29th best player in the class and the fourth-best wide receiver. He’s a top-10 player in the state of Florida.

The 247Sports scouting report described Brown as an elite deep threat with top-level speed. Along with football, Brown is a track star.

There’s a chance for LSU’s 2023 wide receiver class to really stand out if fellow five-star and Baton Rouge prospect Shelton Sampson Jr. — for whom the Tigers are the favorite — joins the group.

The highly-rated wideout became the Tigers’ 13th pledge in the 2023 class after also adding Bishop Gorman cornerback Jeremiah Hughes Thursday evening. A Miami, Fla. native, Brown has been one of the hottest names on the market, choosing LSU over Miami, Florida State, Michigan and Texas.

With Miami believed to have been the favorite to land the electrifying wideout for much of his recruitment, the Tigers and Brian Kelly went into Florida and stole a big-time playmaker.

Wide receivers coach Cortez Hankton gets his guy. The blue-chip receiver, who is one of the fastest prospects in the country, said his relationship with Hankton is what ultimately sealed the deal.

At 6-foot-1, 170-pounds, Brown is a quick, high-flying receiver with phenomenal technique to separate himself from defenders.
