The LSU Tigers are aiming to secure the commitment from 2022 four-star wide receiver Shazz Preston.

The Saint James product is ranked as the No. 6 wide receiver in the country and No. 4 in the state of Louisiana according to 247Sports composite rankings. Many felt that LSU had the inside track on Preston’s recruitment but the firing of Ed Orgeron has opened the door. Much as we saw with Aaron Anderson, who recently flipped to the Tide.

On Saturday when LSU and Alabama kick off the game, Preston will be in attendance as he makes a visit to Tuscaloosa. It is a different environment in Tuscaloosa, especially on game day. Factor in a game against his home-state LSU Tigers, and it should be a raucous game.

Preston visited LSU back in June, six days later he was in Tuscaloosa for his unofficial visit.

“It’s exciting because I never experienced a Tuscaloosa game before. That’ll be my first time at a Tuscaloosa game,” Preston said. “It’s bigger than football at Alabama. It’s about family. It’s about character. It’s about building yourself as a better person. It’s all about life after football.” via The Advertiser

Current crystal ball predictions have LSU in the lead, but you can throw that out the window for now with no head coach in play. Especially when you figure that Nick Saban and the Alabama staff will use that in negative recruiting. Perhaps a strong performance by the Tigers could keep him on the Bayou.
