LSU football is expected to receive a visit this summer from a four-star athlete from Miami.

2021 four-star athlete Yulkeith Brown plans to visit LSU football this summer, according to a recent report from 247Sports.

Brown, 5-foot-10/174 lbs from Miami, FL (Miami Central), is rated in 247Sports’ composite rankings as the No. 42 player in the state of Florida and the No. 20 athlete in the nation.

The Florida native is also expected to visit Texas A&M and Penn State, before making his final decision. According to 247Sports, Brown plans to sign during the early signing period in December.

Brown, who was offered by LSU in late January, put the Tigers in his top six in February.

Last month, Brown called LSU a “dream school” and said the Tigers made a “really good impression”.

Brown previously indicated that he’s planning to commit just before the start of his senior season, but it’s unclear if that is still the plan (due to the coronavirus outbreak that has essentially shut down sports).

If LSU is able to land Brown, it would give them a player who could be creatively used in the offense.

Brown can play wide receiver or running back, so he could possibly be a “gadget” type player for the Tigers. That would make the most sense, mostly because LSU is in tremendous shape at wide receiver at the moment (the Tigers are essentially “wide receiver U” these days).
