KAYSHON BOUTTE (Freshman)
WESTGATE 2019 STATS:
-5 TDs in 1 game (3 RUSH, 1 REC, 1 KR)
-282 Yards and 2 TDs from kickoffs
-198 Yards and 1 TD from punt returns
-871 Rushing Yards, 71 Carries, 12 TDs
We feel 5-Star freshman Kayshon Boutte will be the #3 WR if given the opportunities, such is the breadth of his bountiful pace, virtuosic hands and shifty turbine of moves propelling him in space.
WRs Coach Mickey Joseph already testified on Boutte's behalf, informing us all about the Westgate High juggernaut's generational speed and agility; but the most interesting piece of info the former Nebraska QB revealed during a recent OTB interview (which sounded alarm bells across the desks of all defensive coordinators)????
Boutte is in possession of two "natural catcher's hands"... So...LSU's WR Room, led by the two best WRs in collegiate sports, a sophomore (Trey Palmer) everyone expects to tear the roof off of defenses, two NFL-capable veterans who's time has seemingly arrived, a freshman who studied under Chase at Rummel High (Koy Moore), a generational tight end talent who could wreak as much havoc and win just as many plaudits at receiver or defensive end (Gilbert), freshman TE Kole Taylor appearing taller than the Colorado Rocky mountains from which he hails, high-fiving Yao Ming with ease at 6'7 (Taylor is so hulking he could've drank the entire Mississippi River itself)...with all of these grade A options catching passes from a proven leader at quarterback with a dynamite dolamite arm (our offense generating 45 points, 13 first down completions and 8 3rd down throws during garbage time outings throughout 2019: Arkansas' total offense mustered just over 45 in their final three games combined), then there's a sophomore trio of running backs who caught the ball 19 times for 157 yards last year from the bench and scored 10 TDs...but now you add an unstoppable roadrunner, Kayshon Boutte aka "Lord Miracle Whip-Yo Ass!" as Ensminger's cherry on top???
Featuring merciless hands of ghoulish iron, testimonial moves so languid in their pursuit of the infinite they even made Bo Diddley rise from the dead, and... last but not least: Kayshon's pair of ninja hands, poised with such strength they could somehow resist punching Tucker Carlson. How can you even begin to script a formula to stop a scorching, finishing, accurate, primally dedicated supernaut such as Boutte??? Especially when he's surrounded by the two best wide outs in the game, a 5 star Tight end garnering comparisons to Megatron, and Trey Palmer breaking out, all while housing a certified, beautified running game...not to mention the cavalcade of other savage nobility in tow...all just hungering for the sexy farewell Saban facelift....
...How could they be stopped?
They can't... To make things even more exciting for those partial to WR-based obsessions, Coach Mickey Joseph one-upped himself by declaring "Boutte's natural hands were extreme in their similarity to Ja'Marr Chase's" mittens. He finished by saying "Justin Jefferson had to get to that level...but Kayshon is already there."
Considering Boutte is a guy who hasn't featured in a single official snap in purple and gold, appearing in a slight three practices, these were stunning words coming from one of LSU's most hard-nosed coaches on staff.
Due to Joseph's high confidence levels (the toughest man on LSU's staff doesn't give freebies), we feel higher on Kayshon Boutte than Snoop Dogg at Coachella...we're so high on Boutte you could call us "The LSU David Crosby"....we can't help ourselves....and there's plenty of smoke to tell you why:
When you combine uncompromising skill, unselfish teammates, detail-obsessed coaches, a juggernaut offensive blueprint, and many ultra talented guys all aiming for success, you become a Freight Train of Saban Stain...which is why we believe Boutte will be a major success. The only sustained image defenders will remember from the Boutte-blur will be Boutte's bootay dancing off to the end zone, leaving the derelict architects of his attempted destruction emasculated in the ashes of his wake.
31 Catches, 479 Yards, 5+ TDs
Really that's a minimum, he could soon become one of LSU's most productive freshman wideouts ever.
Although we don't see him topping Terrace Marshall's 13 TDs, Boutte will provide Mickey Joseph a luxury threat from the bench, potentially in an attempt to turn tight SEC contests on their head.
If injuries or poor performances occur from upperclassmen still yet to explode (such as Racey McMath or Jontre Kirklin) those veterans will suffer another season in which younger receivers steal playing time...
He's been compared to Stefon Diggs by many outlets, but I feel this young man reminds me of LSU's Early Doucet, a Tigers legend who amassed 20 touchdowns and 1,943 yards from 160 catches during his time in Baton Rouge, winning the 2007 National Championship.
Same height, same position, same profile, both from New Iberia, Louisiana...
I'd love an Early Doucet sequel....but Boutte may be far more than an update of a predecessor...he's an origami death trip, a signifying mind, a salvation prodigy:
A Touchdown Merchant.
