LSU Targets scheduling official visits

A pair of top LSU targets have finalized their visit plans for the fall. Here are the latest details.

2015 offensive tackle William Sweet has locked in his five official visits, and LSU will get one of them. The four-star North Carolina commit will come to Baton Rouge on Nov. 8 for the Tigers' game against Alabama.

That will mark Sweet's third trip to Baton Rouge. He first visited for the Bayou Picnic in May then returned a couple months later during LSU's Elite Camp in July. Sweet was one of the top offensive linemen at that camp and showed why the Tigers are working to flip him from the Tar Heels.

LSU will get that chance when he visits in November for the Tigers' biggest home game of the year. He does remain firm to UNC though, and schools will have a hard time convincing him otherwise. He is still open to at least visit though, and the Tigers will get their opportunity to impress later this fall.

The other schools on his visit list: Missouri (Sept. 20), UNC (Oct. 4), Michigan (Oct. 11) and Tennessee (Oct. 25).


2015 defensive back Deshawn Raymond has also locked in official visit plans for the fall.

He'll take his first visit next weekend to Nebraska (Sept. 20) when the Cornhuskers host Miami. He'll also trip to Mississippi Stat (Oct. 4), Arkansas (Oct. 11) and TCU (Oct. 18).

You'll notice LSU isn't on that list, but that doesn't mean the Tigers are out of the running. Raymond has made numerous visits to Baton Rouge since getting offered in May. Because of that familiarity, he may not take an official visit to LSU, instead spending that fifth spot on somewhere farther away. But the Tigers are still considered the heavy favorite to land his commitment, and other schools will have a tough time prying him from the state.

Raymond is still entertaining that idea though, and most consider TCU to be the Tigers' biggest threat. Raymond doesn't plan to make a commitment until after his senior season, though a final decision could come anytime after he wraps up these officials.
