Recruiting: East Feliciana’s Trey’Dez Green, two-sport star, commits to LSU football
LSU has reeled in a pledge from the top Class of 2024 tight end prospect in Louisiana for the 2024 class and the No. 2 overall rated player in the state.
East Feliciana’s Trey’Dez Green whittled his final list to LSU, Alabama, Texas A&M, Tennessee and Miami before pulling the trigger in favor of the Tigers. Brian Kelly, Mike Denbrock, Joe Sloan and Jordan Arcement, LSU’s Director of Player Development, made it clear how important it was for Green to join the program.
The 6-foot-7, 238-pound Green also considered basketball and football offers from both LSU and Houston. It will be interesting if the LSU basketball offer remains intact. The four-star football recruit is is the eighth overall rated tight end in the nation in his class.
On the gridiron, he grabbed 42 passes for 864 yards and 14 touchdowns, averaging 20.6 yards per catch in just his second season playing football. On the hardwood, Green averaged 27 points and 11 rebounds. He moves extremely well, can finish with either hand at the rim, finishes high flying dunks and demonstrates superior athleticism. He earned All State in both sports.
Green has a distinct advantage for the 50/50 balls as a pass receiver. He possesses great body control as a mismatch target in the secondary. His blocking will need some work but the frame allows for more strength. He holds a 3.9 GPA and plans to major in either Mathematics or Mechanical Engineering.
LSU has signed a pair of tight ends with similar size in the past. Westlake High’s David LaFleur (6’7″) played for the Tigers from 1993-’96 before being drafted in the first round by the Dallas Cowboys. St. Augustine product Jamal Pettigrew (6’6″) played for the Tigers for three seasons (2016-’18) before transferring to McNeese.
Kelly appears to be fulfilling a promise he made when he arrived in Baton Rouge, locking down top recruits in the talent rich state. If you look at the top 10 prospects in Louisiana’s 2024 recruiting class, four are already committed to LSU and the remaining half dozen have the Tigers as a heavy favorite.
