LSU football is one of the teams in the mix to land 2021 five-star quarterback Caleb Williams.

2021 five-star quarterback Caleb Williams is one of the most sought after recruits in the nation, so it’s no surprise that LSU football is strongly pursuing him.

Williams, 6-foot-2/209 lbs from Washington D.C. (Gonzaga), is rated in 247Sports’ composite rankings as the No. 1 dual-threat quarterback in the nation and the No. 5 overall 2021 recruit.

The highly touted quarterback recently included LSU in his top five schools (along with Clemson, Maryland, Oklahoma and Penn State).

This past weekend, Williams went on Instagram live to discuss his recruitment.

Williams pointed out several things that he loves about LSU, including Tigers head coach Ed Orgeron’s “insane” persona, saying (via Rivals) “he basically makes you want to run through a brick wall and that’s really exciting for an athlete to go to war with his brothers”.

The dynamic signal caller also noted LSU’s crazy atmosphere, saying “If you’ve never been to a LSU game at LSU then you should definitely go”.

Williams then pointed out that if he could throw the ball to any wide receiver in the college game, it would be Tigers wide receiver Justin Jefferson.

Unfortunately for Williams, Jefferson is off to the NFL. And Ja’Marr Chase, the nation’s best wide receiver, will almost certainly be leaving Baton Rouge for the NFL after the 2020 season (he’d be foolish not to).

But LSU still has plenty of talented pass catchers. The Tigers signed five-star wide receiver Kayshon Boutte and five-star tight end Arik Gilbert during the 2020 recruiting cycle. LSU also has a commitment from 2021 four-star wide receiver Deion Smith.

It sounds like Williams is loving almost everything about LSU. For now, it appears the Tigers’ main competition for Williams is Oklahoma.

Basically, Williams’ entire decision could boil down to what he thinks about new LSU passing game coordinator Scott Linehan. If Williams believes Linehan can help him turn into an elite quarterback like Joe Brady helped Joe Burrow, then there’s a strong chance the Tigers will land the nation’s No. 5 overall recruit.

Williams is hoping to commit before his senior year, which means Linehan doesn’t have a lot of time left to make a strong impression.
