William Clapp COMMITTED 01/12/2013 - why this could be huge. Per DP
(Posted on 1/16/13 at 6:27 pm)
Love me some Polish Prince. Derek mentioned a good point on the radio. The New Orleans area will be load with talent for the 2014 class. Getting Clapp this early basically gives us yet another recruiter for the NOLA area. I talked to DP after a show one time and he said that when its all said and done that Leonard Fournette could be the best running back prospect to ever come out of Louisiana.
My questions to the RB.... Do yall agree with DP about getting Clapp so early and do you agree on DP's thoughts of Leonard Fournette?

They're probably not going to be BFF's but there could be a mutual respect there. They will cross paths at least when BM plays Aug and Fournette may think damn I want to run behind this guy if Clapp shows up.
I think the bigger angle is Speedy Noil --> Gerald Willis --> Leonard Fournette. That's how the dominos will fall.

Sure hope not....I want Noil to commit soon..if people are scared of competition then we dont need them here.
On another note, today on the Buddy Songy show Tommy Clapp (Will's father) stated how Frank Wilson wanted Will to take the lead in recruiting the NOLA area. He also said that Will has a good relationship with Trey Quinn..FWIW
