6-2 and 325, that’s a guy that takes up a lot space. Run stopper on one side of the ball, center on the other.

Yeah but he is recruited as a Center not a DL.

SMU and Tulane? I didn’t know they went after the same recruits as Bama

Well, the young man is a very good student and attends a Christian School. SMU is a good school and a Methodist school. Tulane is also a good school so I can see why he had interest. I am glad we got him. The Lafayette area is churning out recruits like never before.

In the case of LCA, don’t let “Christian school” fool you. LCA is the latest version of a sports academy in Louisiana disguising itself as a parochial school( see John Curtis & Evangel). They have already been penalized for breaking LHSAA rules and have been caught recruiting the Lafayette area.

Do you realize how many 3 stars end up being great players? If your coach sees a kid that’s 325 and likes him you should be happy. And im not even a tiger fan

Don't be fooled by the 3 star rating. The kid's a brick wall and eats space like a dying star.

He was recruited to play center not D-tackle

As a Center he’s large, low and athletic. He won’t be a dlineman but has promise as a OC.
