WR Chris Hilton Signs With LSU
— LSU Football (@LSUfootball) December 16, 2020
Chris Hilton may be sticking around in his home state, but he had plenty of opportunities to play elsewhere.
Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana Tech, Notre Dame, Ole Miss, Texas A&M, and UCF were just some of the programs that expressed interest in the wideout. Instead, he became one of LSU football's latest signees along with fellow receiver Deion Smith. The Tigers also recently beefed up their defensive line with the addition of 2022 prospect Fitzgerald West.
Head coach Ed Orgeron has been riding the high of his team's 2019 season, and while making the College Football Playoff is nice, I'm sure the Tigers want to build a dynasty that can compete with Alabama and Clemson year after year.
Hilton will get to work with this excellent coaching staff in Baton Rouge to try to make the most of his four-star potential.

After watching his film, it's understandable why Hilton is listed as the No. 78 overall prospect in the 247Sports Composite rankings. His speed, agility are excellent, and the only improvements to his game have to do with building up muscle to compete with more aggressive cornerbacks.
In addition to his work on the football field, Hilton's athletics prowess extends to track and field. He won a state championship for the high jump during his sophomore year.
Wide receiver Chris Hilton has a long way to go before he could think about his professional career. If he can conquer the NCAA, then he has a great shot at reaching the NFL when all is said and done.
