On Sunday, the 3-Star safety out of Destrehan High School committed to Ole Miss. Robinson is the No. 10 overall player in Louisiana according to 247Sports & received an offer from the Rebels way back in February. Louisiana native Pete Golding (defensive coordinator) led the charge in landing yet another top prospect from the boot.
"I didn't want to wait because I knew Ole Miss was the right place for me," Robinson said. "They put a lot into recruiting me during this process. Everybody there preach about being a better man & how to be a better overall player, that's what I need to be around in order to be in the best possible position whether it's the NFL or a different career path."
Robinson recently visited Notre Dame for an elite camp & TCU for an official visit who were also in his top 3 schools. And at 6-foot-1, 190 pounds, he will be an excellent fit in Pete Golding's system on the next level because of his history of putting safeties in the NFL.
"Coach Pete (Golding) & coach Neighbors plan on having me all over the field in the secondary," Robinson said. "They check on me everyday so my relationship with those two guys are great."
Playing wide receiver was where Robinson started his high school career at, but after his sophomore year he made the switch to safety & it paid off big time especially with his recruitment.
"I switched to defense because we needed a safety & I wanted to make an impact for my team to put us in the best position to win," Robinson said."
Robinson has 4 official visits remaining & says that he might take one more official visit to Notre Dame during the fall.
On Wednesday, the 3-Star cornerback out of John F. Kennedy High School committed to Ole Miss. The No. 4 ranked cornerback in Louisiana according to 247Sports. He had been in contact with the coaching staff for some months, but he finally received an offer from the Rebels June 12.
"I took a long look at the DBs on their roster & I feel like I will have a good chance to play early," Causey said. "My relationship with the coaching staff is pretty good, but especially with the defensive coordinator Coach Pete (Golding)."
Causey currently holds 14 offers from schools like Mississippi St, Missouri, Colorado, Nebraska, Georgia Tech, etc. Many thought LSU would offer Causey after he had an outstanding showing at their elite camp two weeks ago where he was arguably the best DB there. He also measured in at 6-foot with a 75 inch wing span, & oh by the way he was clocked at a 4.55 in the forty yard dash.
"I like the fact that Ole Miss is far away from home, but not too far," Causey said. "The coaches have been recruiting me by showing me that they plan on using me everywhere in the secondary because I'm versatile."
One of the traits that stands out the most is Causey's mentality no matter what setting he is in or who he's lining up against. It will be interesting to see if lead recruiter Pete Golding can keep this kid committed leading up to December's first signing period.
On Tuesday, the LSU football staff got their 17th commitment for the 2024 class from 3-star WR Kylan Billiot out of Terrebonne High School (Houma, LA). The No. 9 overall player & No. 2 ranked WR in Louisiana according to 247Sports earned an offer from the LSU staff on last Saturday after a dominating performance at the Tigers 7v7 team camp.
"It feels good & a dream come true to commit to a school like LSU," Billiot said. "I knew I was going to have to work really hard to make it happen. Going to LSU's camp competing against some good competition brought the best out of me, it's just an unbelievable feeling because I went earned it."
The Tigers get their second WR committed for the 2024 class, the other is 5-foot-11 Joesph Stone out of (Fairburn, GA). They may take one more WR for this class, but it's evident that Billiot was a must to keep in the state.
"Me & Coach Hankton have been having a relationship for over a year, he continued to tell me the things I needed to work on to take my game to another level," Billiot said. "I wanted to make sure when he saw me this summer for camp that he could tell that I worked on the things I was weak at."
Billiot's offer list is over 15 & although he's now committed to the Tigers, fans should not be surprised if some SEC schools try to flip him before December's signing day. After being clocked at a 4.57 in the forty yard dash in front of LSU's staff & measuring in at 6-foot-3, 188 pounds with a 78 inch wing span, expect Billiot's stock to continue to rise.
"After I received my offer from LSU on Saturday, a couple SEC schools reached out to me trying to get me to come take an official visit," Billiot said. "I'm not focused on any of those schools, I'm focused on helping my team be better than we were last season & being dominant versus anybody that lines up against me."
"Coach Frank (Wilson), coach Jordan (Arcement), & coach Hankton played such a big role into making me feel like LSU is the best place for me," he said. "We've been having a lot of deep conversations on how to make me a better man by the time I leave there & my career outside of football, that's really big to me. Coach Kelly told me when I get there it's going to be hard, but that's needed if I want to be elite & not regular."
Billiot's first dream was to play basketball in college especially after receiving an offer from Nicholls St. his freshman year, but Billiot soon realized that football could be his ticket.
"I'll always love basketball, but football is better suited for me," he said. "When I started taking football serious after my sophomore year I fell in love with the process & I just want to continue putting in work so I can reach my full potential."
