It's been one week since LSU's Ja'Marr Chase decided to opt-out of the 2020 season. Head Coach Ed Orgeron seems to know exactly who will be tasked with filling those large shoes.

"We're looking at Kayshon Boutte starting as a freshman, and I think that is locked in. Also, Racey McMath, Terrace Marshall, has to be our go-to guy and then Arik Gilbert. I think those are our top four receivers that we have right now," said Ed Orgeron.

In Tuesday's press conference, Orgeron expressed how he believes Boutte has what it takes to be apart of the Tigers starting line up by what he's seen from the Freshman's performance in camp.

The true Freshman has been competing against more experienced players like Sophomore Trey Palmer and Senior Jonre Kirklin.

Last season at Westgate, Boutte recorded 1,000 receiving yards and 15 touchdowns.
