Kentwood star visits LSU with signing day near

(WVUE) - One of the top players in the state left uncommitted, Kentwood cornerback/athlete Shyheim Carter, shook up the recruiting world with a visit to LSU Monday, according to report from

Recruiting expert James Smith of the gave his thoughts on the visit," The state's most dynamic playmaker has long believed to be headed out of state, but as we have alluded to in recent weeks, the two parties have not closed the doors on each other."

247 sports list Carter as the ninth best cornerback in the country. The four-star athlete decommitted from Alabama this past Fall.

According to Smith, family could be a major factor in Carter staying in-state,"Carter has two children, both of which he plays an active role in helping raise, making it difficult for him to leave home.

Another factor here is that LSU defensive line coach Ed Orgeron has built a solid rapport with Carter and those involved in his recruitment. The Tigers view him as a versatile prospect that could excel at multiple positions."

National Signing Day is February 3rd.
