The talk about B.J. Chitty has really picked up on the message boards as of late and his recent performance at LSU’s camp has left little doubt about what he can bring to the table.
The 6-foot-2, 185-pound receiver, who reports a 4.4 40-yard dash, left Baton Rouge and no stone was left unturned.
“Man, I got to see everything and it was all really good. They took me around campus, to the academics center for athletes, the stadium, I saw it all,” said Chitty. “They were just showing me a lot of love and I did pretty well at the camp.”
The Northview High product holds offers from Nebraska, Louisville, Southern Mississippi and Duke, but what did the LSU coaching staff tell the athletic receiver?
“I didn’t get an official offer but Coach [Ron] Cooper told me to get back to him this week after they talk about it,” said Chitty.
Chitty, who was once an Auburn commitment prior to Tommy Tuberville’s resignation, plays quarterback for Northview and one can see how effortless he makes the position look. He has undeniable athleticism with straight line, deceptive speed. These attributes led to 600 rushing yards with another 1,500 yards through the air in his junior year.
While Chitty plays under center in high school, it’s not where many project him at the next level.
“They were working me at receiver and I made a couple of big plays,” he said. “I got compliments from Coach Miles. He is a really nice man who knows how to treat his players.”
So what did the successful camp do for Chitty’s top three?
“I do have a top three and it would have to be LSU, Alabama, and Florida State…LSU’s number one for sure,” stated Chitty.
The three-star wide receiver has a 3.0 core grade point average and just took the ACT this past June. Chitty plans on attending Alabama’s camp this Wednesday and will continue the camp circuit the following weekend at Florida State.
While Additional offers would be right up Chitty’s alley, one in particular is on his mind.
“It’s going to be tough for anyone to top LSU right now,” said Chitty. “I just hope they offer.”
