  08/10/22 - WR *Kayshon BoutteJr/2023, LSU

  Kayshon Boutte thought about leaving LSU. He really did. When rumors floated around about the possibility in December, the star wide receiver was wondering if he should transfer to another school. It never reached the point where Boutte entered the transfer portal, but consider the circumstances. Everything around him was changing while he recovered from the first major injury of his career. Different coaches. Different teammates. Different staff members. The people who convinced him to pick LSU in the first place were gone. Should he leave, too? "Coming out of high school, I felt like the people who recruited me was the people who had the most trust and belief in me," Boutte said. "I felt like being under a new staff, it was all kind of weird playing for people I never really met. I didn't really know any of them personally. I felt like I didn't fit."

Boutte wanted to know the people around him, and he barely recognized any of the faces in the building. Coming off a season-ending ankle injury in October, his professional future hinged on this junior season. He needed to trust the coaches responsible for developing him. "I thought about it," Boutte said. "I really did. There was a lot going on." Ultimately, Boutte stayed. He got more comfortable with head coach Brian Kelly. He decided he should "overcome this process." And it helped that local personal injury attorney Gordon McKernan signed him to a name, image and likeness deal. On Dec. 29, 2021, Boutte posted on Twitter: "Ignore the rumors...I'm locked in." - Baton Rouge Advocate
