Two LSU commits invited to The Opening

LSU commits Stephen Sullivan and Dylan Moses earned invites to The Opening on Saturday in New Orleans, giving the Tigers four pledges heading to this prestigious football camp

NEW ORLEANS — The Opening came to New Orleans on Saturday, and a pair of LSU commits earned invites to the elite summer camp held at the Nike Headquarters.

Wide receiver Stephen Sullivan (Donaldsonville) and athlete Dylan Moses (U-High) stood out amongst the hundreds of players participating in Saturday's Opening Regional. Those two were two of the six top performers that received their golden ticket.

Sullivan has the longest length of commitment in the Tigers' 2016 class. He pledged to LSU back in February 2014 after receiving an offer during "Boys from the Boot" as a sophomore. It was his first one, though Sullivan has received several offers since.

He's visited other schools, like Auburn and Mississippi State, but Sullivan said Saturday that he's 100 percent committed to LSU.

Sullivan's one of the best players in the state. The 6-foot-6 monster is the No. 1 wide receiver in the state, and the No. 5 player in the state. He's a four-star prospect that comes in as the No. 34 overall recruit and No. 7 wide receiver nationally.

Moses made national headlines after receiving a scholarship offer from the Tigers while still in middle school. He caught even more attention when he committed to LSU in the fall of his freshman year. He was the first five-star prospect ever designated by Scout while still only in his first year of high school.

Now Moses has the distinction of receiving an Opening invite before his junior season. While this camp is mostly reserved for the best of the rising senior class, a handful of underclassmen do land invites each year. Moses is the first to get one for The Opening 2015.

Four other players landed Opening invites at the New Orleans regional, several of which are LSU targets.

Rummel cornerback Kristian Fulton picked up his golden ticket. He's long been one of LSU's biggest priorities in the 2016 class, and has visited Baton Rouge many times over the last year. He said Saturday that he would like to commit somewhere this summer, and most consider the Tigers a heavy favorite.

He ranks No. 34 nationally, No. 3 at his position and No. 6 in the state.

The other three invitees came from out of state. CB Nigel Knott (Germantown, Miss.), DL Raekwon Davis (Meridian, Miss.) and DT Ed Oliver (Houston). Both Knott and Oliver have offers from LSU, and Davis is committed to Alabama.
