Former West Virginia Mountaineers wide receiver Sam Brown has announced his commitment for the 2022 football season. After just two years in Morgantown, WV, Brown will head down to Texas to become a member of the Houston Cougars football program.

The sophomore saw very little playing time in his two seasons with the Mountaineers. He saw a decrease in receptions, going from eight in the 2020 season two just two catches this past season. He leaves West Virginia with just ten career receptions for 108 yards.

Brown is a 6-foot-2 four-star recruit in the 2020 class from Bloomingdale, GA, according to the On3 database. He was recruited by several big-name schools throughout the country, which included the Florida Gators and this year’s national championship team the Georgia Bulldogs.

LSU adds receiver via transfer portal

Former Louisiana wide receiver Kyren Lacy announced on Friday that he had committed to LSU, giving the Tigers a big-bodied receiver to add to the room for the 2022 season.

Lacy wrapped up a visit to LSU on Friday after taking an Auburn official visit earlier in the week. Oklahoma made a strong push to land the Thibodaux, La. native.

In his sophomore campaign, Lacy caught 22 passes for 304 yards and six touchdowns over just 12 games. As a true freshman, Lacy caught a team-high 28 passes for 364 yards and four touchdowns. His four scores were tied for the most on the team.

In two seasons over 23 games in Lafayette, Lacy caught 50 passes for 668 yards and 10 scores.

A late riser in recruiting rankings, Lacy added a Miami offer during his senior year, but opted to stay home to play for Napier. Now, he’s on the move.

“I would like to start off by saying thank you to the Louisiana Ragin’ Cajun family,” Lacy said in a Twitter statement. “I appreciate how y’all embraced & believed in me. I’m forever grateful for my coaches, teammates, & fans during these last two years. The Ragin’ Cajuns family will always hold a special place in my heart.”

According to the On3 Consensus, a complete and equally weighted industry-generated average that utilizes all four major recruiting media companies, Lacy ranked as the No. 162 overall wide receiver in the country and No. 36 prospect in Louisana.
