Gridiron Football Top 300: Kylan Billiot

Terrebonne High School has produced some great players just in the last couple of years at the Division I level including Ja’Khi Douglas (Florida State), Jaylin Lucas (Indiana), and Maason Smith (LSU). Now, the Tigers have another DI prospect that has a chance to be the next great player to come out of the area in Class of 2024 wide receiver Kylan Billiot.

“It would mean a lot to me to make it out Terrebonne and leave a mark. Those guys are putting on for our city right now and I’ll definitely follow in their footsteps.”

At 6’3, 188 pounds with 4.5/40 speed, Billiot is a physical specimen that can give defensive backs fits because of his length and athleticism.

“My length, my height, and my athletic ability to jump higher than my opponent to high point the ball is my biggest strength.”

Terrebonne High School WR Kylan Benoit is looking to become the next great receiver recently to come out of the Houma area.

As a go get it type of receiver, all Billiot does is make leaping grabs. The physically gifted wide receiver can go up and get the ball at its highest point. His big play and jump ball ability has helped him receive offers from Southern Miss, Tulane, Nicholls State, Southeastern, Troy, and FIU. Despite receiving DI offers, the Houma, Louisiana native is working on getting more offers before it is all said and done.

“I would love to get an offer from LSU, UL, Alabama, Texas A&M, and I could keep going on. I want to have a lot of choices because I want to choose the right place that is most comfortable for me and my family.”

This summer, Billiot is looking to earn those offers by hitting some upcoming camps including TCU, UL, and LSU as well as making some upcoming visits with Tulane and Southern Miss. Even though he has proved to be a jump ball receiver that thrives getting the 50/50 ball, he wants to show that he can take the right steps necessary to be a complete receiver.

“I want to improve on running off the ball full speed even if I’m not getting the ball, and running my routes better coming out my break on top of the route.”

Billiot originally started as a big basketball guy and was actually offered by Nicholls State to play both sports, but he eventually fell in love with the game of football. Although football has become his main priority, he still takes some things that he developed on the hardwood and translated it onto the gridiron.

“Playing basketball helps me with my explosiveness off the ball and fast twitch.”

Also, watching one of the best players in the NFL definitely helps him in his development.

“Justin Jefferson is just so smooth and his story coming out of high school shows me that its not impossible to get at the talent level he is at now.”

Like Jefferson, Billiot wants a chance to play for the LSU Tigers. He has not received an offer yet, but he has taken a visit and has enjoyed some of the conversations that he has had with some of the Tigers’ coaches.

“LSU probably impressed me the most. Their facility is beautiful and I was comfortable and felt like home.”

“The conversation went really well and I have talked to Coach Jordan and Coach Hankton, and they tell things I want to hear. I definitely feel comfortable talking to them.”

After having 33 catches for 547 yards and 5 TDs, the All-District wide receiver is emerging as one of the state’s top receivers and is looking forward to proving that to be the case in his senior season.

“I want to make the playoffs and have a better record than last year. This is my senior season. I want to go out with a bang!”

The explosive big receiver wants to go our with a bang while also showing college coaches why he should be nationally recruited.

“I think a college should offer because I feel like I work harder than everyone else.”
