|Parker Hufft – Country Day High School (Rhodes College)|
April 26, 2012 – We just ran a story about football players from Louisiana who signed after signing day and we already have several more since the story ran last week to add to the list.
LB/DE Parker Hufft (6-4, 220) from Country Day High School in New Orleans just decided in the past week to go to Rhodes College over Richmond. Parker is a kid who has a frame to weigh in the 255 pound range when he’s done, and I predict he will outgrow Linebacker, the position he played in High School, and be a good 6-4, 255 pound Defensive End and in the future.
Lebeaux Cooper (6-1, 185), a Defensive Back from Port Allen High School, will be in the 6-1, 195 to 200 pound range in two years of college football as a FS or SS in college. Cooper is going to a Junior College in Arizona called Eastern Arizona.
Defensive Tackle Marrick Charles (6-1, 300) from Destrehan is taking his talents to Coffeyville Junior College in Kansas and will play two years there as a quick footed, strong, tough, big, and agile Defensive Tackle. He will be starting Noseguard by the time he signs in 2014 with a big time DI program. I filmed this kid many times in High School at Destrehan and love his upside as a player.
Richard Carthon (5-9, 190) from Byrd High School in Shreveport played QB and RB for his team in three years as a starter and runs a legit 4.45/40. Richard was committed to Cornell for a long time and recently switched to Tulane. Richard will also play Baseball for Tulane, and I think this kid has a great future as a RB in Conference USA. The last Sleeper RB they signed from Louisiana was a kid named Matt Forte from Slidell High School, and Matt has done pretty good in the NFL for the Chicago Bears.
|Marrick Charles – Destrehan (Coffeyville Junior College)|
Wide Receiver Laquan Stewart (6-1, 180) from Warren Easton High School in New Orleans has a legit 4.5/40 to his resume, and in person he looks faster in uniform as a football player. Tuskegee University is getting one heck of a player from New Orleans to remember.
Defensive Tackle Dylan Manale from Archbishop Rummel High School in New Orleans has something you can’t coach, and that’s a big heart. At 6-0, 265 pounds, he will take his talents to Mississippi College. Manale has a chance to be a pretty good Noseguard at the D2 or D3 level of football, and with some time will get bigger in weight and stronger.
We will continue to update the 2012 Recruiting Class for Louisiana, and as the summer goes along there will be some more kids sign late for Junior Colleges and D2 and D3 Colleges.
