When most folks talk about LSU football wide receivers that will play a big role in 2021, the first name that usually comes up is Kayshon Boutte.

Boutte, a former five-star wide receiver who was ranked as the No. 24 overall player in the 2020 recruiting class, had a tremendous freshman season for the Tigers this past season.

In 10 games, Boutte caught 45 passes for 735 yards and five touchdowns.

That’s a more impressive true freshman season than either Ja’Marr Chase or Justin Jefferson.
