Without star receiver Kayshon Boutte, who is still recovering from offseason surgery, available for the spring game on Saturday, LSU’s other receivers got the opportunity to showcase their skills.

One player who many were excited to see was sophomore Malik Nabers, who became the team’s top option after Boutte’s 2021 season ended prematurely.

As the clock ran out in the third quarter of the exhibition, Nabers made an excellent play on a home-run ball from quarterback Myles Brennan inside the red zone. The ball was tipped, but Nabers’ concentration allowed him to make the juggling catch and do the necessary footwork to stay inside the end zone and give the offense a 52-28 lead.

Nabers is one of several Tigers pass-catchers to make some nice plays on Saturday, including Brian Thomas Jr. and Jack Bech. Once Boutte is back in the fold and hopefully healthy this fall, this will be a tough receiver group for opposing defenses to contend with.

The only question is which quarterback will be the one throwing to them.
