Four-star defensive tackle Tyler Shelvin has opted to end his recruitment and stay home to play his college football.
The 6-3, 375 pound native of Crowley, La. took an official visit to LSU over the weekend and was so impressed with what he saw that he’s decided to honor his nearly two-year old verbal commitment to the Tigers class of 2017.
“I’m not taking anymore official visits,” he said. “My experiences this weekend on my official visit to LSU, I liked what I saw and I want to stay at home. “
According to 247Sports composite rankings, Shelvin is the nation’s No. 3 DT and the top overall prospect in the state of Louisiana. Shelvin is seen as a solid runstopper who moves well for his size.
Shelvin makes for an imposing presence on the field. He really moves well for a guy his size and has shown he can really chase the ball.
Shelvin also had offers from Alabama, Texas A&M and Nebraska.
