Brian Kelly won’t allow LSU football to lose its WRU designation following the most recent compromise

After his most recent commitment, Brian Kelly wants to make sure that the nickname “WRU” stays in the Bayou for LSU football.

LSU football has recently produced a number of excellent wide receivers, contributing significantly to the school’s designation as a WRU. Brian Kelly, the new Tigers’ head coach, wants to keep it that way.

Shelton Sampson Jr., a 5-star receiver, pledged his commitment to the Tigers on Saturday. The native of Baton Rouge has received offers from other institutions, including Alabama, Florida State, and Texas A&M, but has decided to remain at home.

However, Kelly is trying to make sure that LSU keeps the name of WRU, and now that Sampson is on board, it appears more and more likely that she will succeed. He has great ball skills and a tall frame at 6-foot-4 and 181 pounds, which will help the Tigers’ offense run smoothly.

LSU football: Brian Kelly’s pledge to Shelton Sampson Jr. keeps WRU in the game

Sampson Jr., ranked No. 33 in the 247Sports Composite, is a prominent tandem with Jalen Brown that will try to keep LSU’s offense among the best in the country and maintain their WRU position. The good news is that LSU kept a hometown favorite and was aware of his potential.

As a junior last season, Sampson had 40 catches for 932 yards and eight touchdowns. It’s feasible that he will surpass that total with one more year left, arrive at school with greater experience, and start having an influence straight away.

While he’s in town, Brian Kelly wants to uphold and perhaps strengthen the traditions that LSU has to offer. Everything seemed to be going according to plan, at least in terms of keeping WRU in the Bayou, as he acquired Jalen Brown and Shelton Sampson Jr.
