LAFM’s Week 8 Recruiting Scoop and Tidbits
by Jace LeJeune
We have reached towards the end of the regular season. It is hard to believe that there are only two more weeks left to go until the end of the regular season for a lot of these teams. Not only has the regular season picked up for a lot of these high school teams, but the recruiting has heated up as well. Trying to keep track of it all, Louisiana Football Magazine’s Jace LeJeune and Cameron Cerniglia were able to cover a couple of teams this week and visit with the coaches as well as the players to give us a recruiting update with what is going on in their prospective programs when it comes to recruiting after Week 8 of prep play. Also, make sure to check in on our website on Tuesday as Louisiana Football Magazine’s recruiting expert Lee Brecheen gives his recruiting tidbits from this past weekend as well.
Baker High School seniors MLB Ladarien Scott (5-10, 215), ATH Bryant Williams (6-0, 180), C/OG Nelson Griffin (6-2, 295), and FB/DE Camryn King (6-2, 215) all were invited on a visit to Prairie View A&M last week for their game against Southern.
