Recruits all around the country are taking notice of Arkansas State's recent hiring of Gus Malzahn as the Red Wolves new Head Football Coach.
Malzahn, who is known as one of the nation's best offensive minds, left Auburn where he was the Tigers offensive coordinator to become a D1 Head Coach. Malzahn led Auburn to one National Championship and helped tutored Cam Newton to winning the Heisman Trophy.
It appears that Malzahn and his new coaching staff will go after top athletes across the region no matter if they are currently committed elsewhere or not.
One such athlete is Louisiana's wide out Devon Breaux of Donaldsonville HS.
Breaux, a 6-foot-0, 175-pound wide receiver, is currently committed to Conference USA member Tulane.
AStateNation.com caught up with Breaux to get his thoughts on the news of Malzahn being named Head Coach at Arkansas State.
"He is going to make their offense a lot better," Breaux said. "They were good this season and won a conference championship, look for them to win it again next year with Malzahn calling the plays."
Breaux likes the Malzahn offense, especially since he is a wide receiver.
"They will pass the ball a lot more with him being their coach," Breaux said. "They have offered me already."
Could Malzahn convince Breaux of changing the Scout.com three star prospect's mind and pledge?
"It would take a lot for me to change my mind," Breaux admitted. "If anyone could turn me around it could be Coach Malzahn."
