The 2010 Bayou 25

The Bayou 25

by Lee Brecheen

February 10, 2010 – The Bayou 25 are the top recruits in order of true ability and those who are most ready to make an impact in college. I got to see the best by watching over 600 game films in 3 years of these kids, and I ranked the best by position in order. Then I ranked the best overall to get the top guys. I always lean toward big guys who can run in the higher rankings because they are hard to find, and then I rank the most ready, God gifted skill players that can change a game. This list was not gathered by recruiting services, newspaper ALL State teams, or websites. This is a true evaluation of who I think are the best football players in Louisiana. This list, I feel, you can win Championships with, at any level. There are at least 25 more that could be considered impact players for the next level (IAA or DIV 1) that are not included on this list. So any time you have at least 60 players from a state that are great players, you can’t say it’s a bad year. Next year Louisiana will have close to 200 big time recruits in Louisiana. To give you an idea, next years group will be the deepest class I’ve ever seen in my 20 years of watching and filming. I have watched all top 200 players for 2011 as far back as 6 months ago to get that number. The final number for the 2011 signing day, when that day comes next year, could have as many as 350 players sign and that’s any level – DIV 1, IAA, D2, D3, and NAIA combined. The strength of this class for immediate impact is skill, but there are a small group of talented Defensive Ends, Linebackers, and Defensive Tackles that will be great players one day that are raw now but have the frames to develop in college. The top fifteen players in this group can play for anyone in the country right away, and the next group is close behind. Jacobs has the most upside for the NFL as a big guy. Fobbs, Reed, Mathieu, and Wright are game changers. Blue will be a great back, as well as Jackson. And Eric Reid and Simon are physical Safeties, and they’re built like Linebackers. The three QB’s – Broadway, Legaux, and Bullock – can play right away, and the other QB – Briscoe – with a redshirt year, could be just as good. Jordan Allen is the best OT in class with the most upside for the NFL. Armand Williams is the best tall WR with speed that with a redshirt year could be special. Patt from Breaux Bridge is a big time hitter, and Nixon from Southern Lab is the fastest player in Louisiana in the forty and a true CB.
