Louisiana Football Update for Kids Who Play Football Out of State

December 8, 2009 – If there are two kids who have really done a tremendous job, out of state playing college football , and very rarely you hear of their accomplishments it’s RB Brent Grimes 5-9 (196), of Central Arkansas, and QB Scott Buisson 6-0 (180 ) of Arkansas Monticello. QB Scott Buisson played his high school football at Archbishop Rummel in New Orleans, and was a heck of a football player in high school, he came very close to getting Archbishop Rummel to the superdome his SR year, and was one of the all time great QBs to play at the school. Scott was not even a one star coming out, and none of the DI programs offered visits, and very few IAA schools even showed a lot of interest because of his height (5-11) to (6-0), and his weight at the time (170). Scott now is the starting QB for Arkansas Monticello, which is a D2 program, and has been very successful. Scott this year finished with 443 yards rushing, 4 touchdowns, and 2,594 yards passing, with 17 touchdowns throwing, that’s an average of 235.7 yards throwing per game, and 40 yards rushing a game. Scott had 395 yards passing against Harding University, October 24, of this year as his best single game passing performance. Scott Buisson had 1,319 yards rushing , 12 touchdowns, and 2,700 yards passing with 25 touchdowns as a SO, Scott Buisson is only a junior , and will be a SR in 2010. I bet many IAA programs are kicking themselves after seeing what this kid has done at the D2 level, he’s so quick in the pocket, a big time leader for his team, and has a really good arm, with great touch. Scott reminded me as taller version of Doug Flutie former Boston College QB, when I saw him play in high school, he competes every play, and gets the most out of his ability.

RB Brent Grimes of IAA Central Arkansas, played his high school ball at Baton Rouge based high school Redemptorist, and was always over shadowed by the bigger skill players at his school most notably CB/RB Johnell Neal, 5-11 176 , who had a great career as a DB for Head Coach George O Leary for( DI) Central Florida, best CB for three straight years and probably best CB in that conference , and is currently playing pro ball. Brent only stood about( 5-8 )about( 175) in weight coming out of Redemptorist High School, but now stands( 5-9 ), and a very muscled built (196) pounds. Brent finished the 2009 season rushing for 1,222 yards with 18 touchdowns, Brent carried the ball , get this, 597 attempts in his college career at Central Arkansas for 3,060 yards, and a whopping 50 touchdowns. Grimes season best game this year was 181 yards against McNeese State; he carried the ball 39 times in that game for his team. Brent also had 32 catches for 311 yards as a Wide Receiver out of the back field in 2009. Brent Grimes will have a chance to be invited to a NFL camp or CFL, in the upcoming months. The NFL loves short quick downhill runners, with really good hands out of the back field. The only former Redemptorist RB to have as much success in college would be RB Jay Lucas, who signed with Texas A&M out of high school, but transferred to IAA Southeastern in Hammond, where he started three years with some very good stats.

I will end by say this, these are two great examples of kids, that were not big in high school and where not recruited by DI or IAA schools even in state very hard, they have the it factor, when it comes to recruiting, RB Brent Grimes was always fast and quick, when he was 5-8 175 in high school, QB Scott Buisson was always a leader, with a good arm, and great touch, and found a way to move the chains in high school. Leadership and knowing the game, with a great work ethic will go a long way for you in college.
