No. 5 wide receiver in America to visit Baton Rouge

The LSU football staff continues its pursuit of coveted wide receiver Jaime Ffrench as he navigates a busy spring of visits.

After a series of unofficial trips to America’s top programs, he is committed to an official visit to Baton Rouge on June 1, sources confirmed to LSU Country. On3’s Chad Simmons first reported the visitation schedule.

Ffrench, ranked No. 5 nationwide, is in the top 30 of the 2025 cycle with several programs on his ear.

Now the Tigers get the first chance at Ffrench, with Brian Kelly and Co. have the first official visit planned.

The visiting schedule:

LSU: June 1

Miami: June 7

Tennessee: June 13

Texas: June 21

Now that Ffrench is locked up for an official visit, who else is on LSU’s 2025 Wide Receiver Big Board?

The wide receiver big board:

Dakorien Moore: No. 1 wide receiver in America

Moore announced his commitment to LSU in August 2023 and has remained true to his commitment ever since. He is still tied to Brian Kelly and the Tigers, but is certainly enjoying the recruiting process.

Now a trio of schools are trying to move him away from his commitment to LSU, while Texas, Oregon and Ohio State are making noise.

Last weekend, Moore traveled to Ohio State to visit the Buckeyes staff, opting not to move to Baton Rouge for their Spring Game.

The decision raised eyebrows among some, but Moore cleared the air afterward and confirmed that he is “1,000% committed” to LSU.

It’s clear the Tigers will be on red alert for the next few months until Moore puts pen to paper in December.

Kaliq Lockett: No. 2 wide receiver in America

Lockett headed to Baton Rouge last Friday, where he was joined by Bryce Underwood, the nation’s No. 1 quarterback, for a weekend stay.

The coveted wideout remained in town all weekend and sources believed the visit “went very well” as the Tigers landed on his list.

Now, Lockett will make a return trip to LSU for an official visit from May 31 to June 2, where he will be joined by several prized targets, but none bigger than DJ Pickett, the No. 1 cornerback in the 2025 cycle.

We like where Lockett stands here as he continues to look at LSU. It will be a battle for his services, but the Bayou Bengals are gaining momentum.

Caleb Cunningham: No. 3 wide receiver in America

LSU has already received a visit from Caleb Cunningham this spring, even more wideouts are expected to make their way to town over the next two months, but for the coveted goal, it was a productive visit to campus.

The five-star Mississippi native was joined by a handful of the nation’s top recruits as he made his return trip to The Boot.

Cunningham gained game day experience last fall and after a positive visit, he looks forward to an official visit to Baton Rouge soon.

A few notes:

Wide receiver coach Cortez Hankton brought in an impressive wide receiver last season and appears to be swinging for the fences again. With a commitment already in place from the top and the No. 2 wide receiver about to return for an official visit, it’s clear his formula is working down south.

Moore, Cunningham and Lockett, the nation’s top three receivers, all have LSU on their radar as they prepare for an official visit schedule this summer and fall.

The Bayou Bengals will fend off the Texas Longhorns and Oregon Ducks for Moore’s services, but his promise so far is a big boost for LSU.

Another important note is that LSU already has a commitment for the No. 1 wide receiver in Louisiana, TaRon Francis. A player coveted on the recruiting trail, the Tigers went out and secured his services early.
