2018 Scout 100 wide receiver grabs big LSU offer

Tiger Blitz caught up with one of LSU's newest offers in 2018 Mater Dei (Calif.) wide receiver Amon-Ra St. Brown about his big offer from the Tigers.

2018 Mater Dei (Calif.) wide receiver Amon-Ra St. Brown got a huge offer from LSU this past week with player personnel analyst Brian Squeglia reaching out over Twitter to let St. Brown know if he called Dameyune Craig, he'd have good news for him.

"He was just telling me how I should talk to coach Craig soon to get some good news. They want me to get to know him," the 6-foot, 190-pound receiver said. "My coach told me I was offered. I was super excited to get offered by LSU because they're a wide receiver machine. Getting an offer from there was huge."


St. Brown plans to give Craig a call soon and find out more about the Tigers, who continue to produce big-time wide receivers.

"LSU is a huge offer for me because knowing all the receivers that have come out of LSU is big. Me possibly going there would be huge. LSU would be a great school to go to for me to get to the next level.

The great NFL receivers that LSU produced mean a lot to St. Brown for his recruitment. 

"I think they're some of the best in the country. Obviously they have Reuben Randle, Odell Beckham, Jarvis Landry, some great receivers from LSU in the league. If I go there, hopefully I can be one of the next ones."

His older brother, 2017 receiver Osiris St. Brown, is committed to Stanford and his other brother, Equanimeous St. Brown, plays for Notre Dame, but that won't sway his decision.

“Osiris never really tries to influence me on where I should go or where I should not go. He lets it happen, lets me decide or choose what I like or what I don't like,” St. Brown told Scout's The Bootleg. “We talk about things like where we are going to play and what we are going to do, but (my brothers) haven't forced me to do anything for like where I should go or what I should do.”

Stanford, Notre Dame, USC, Tennessee, Cal and Washington are some of the other schools coming after St. Brown the hardest. All of them like the Scout four-star's ability to produce after the catch.

"They just like my ability to make plays and make plays after the catch. Just saying I can help the offense because I'm what they're looking for," St. Brown said. "I have strong hands, can run after the catch and I can block."

St. Brown already knows what one of the biggest factors in his recruitment will be as he prepares for hopefully, the next level.

"The biggest thing for me with college is to play as a freshman and my role in an offense. I want to go three and done. Having a big role in the offense is something that's big for me."

Stanford and Notre Dame got visits from St. Brown this summer for camps. St. Brown is really looking for Michigan, Tennessee and Florida, Florida State offers next. 

"I think it's nice to go anywhere I want and not just stick on the west coast. West coast players usually stay on the west coast, but I like to see them go elsewhere."

St. Brown is the No. 55 player in the Scout 100, the No. 2 wide receiver in the West and the No. 6 overall receiver in 2018.
