Coach Hudspeth and staff came away with two signees on the defensive side of the ball on the first day of the early signing period for junior college athletes. The Cajuns were looking to add depth and competition on the defensive side of the ball in its junior college class. While the numbers aren't large, UL did come away with two solid athletes that will compete in spring football.
Safety Wil Burrowes, 6-1, 200-pounds out of Mississippi Gulf Coast CC will add depth to a young group of safeties returning for the Cajun defense. Burrowes finished the season with 45 tackles, 7 pass breakups, 3 INT as a sophomore for the nationally ranked Bulldogs. Wil Burrowes reported offers from UL, South Alabama and Toledo. He also had interest from Miami, Florida State, South Florida and Florida.
Arizona Western OLB Ryan Mosby, 6-1, 225-pounds announced his decision to sign with Louisiana last night. Mosby originally signed with Kentucky out of high school and redshirted his freshmen season. Mosby played sparingly in his second season with the Wildcats on special teams. After Kentucky made coaching changes in their football program, Mosby transferred to Western Arizona.
Mosby finished his sophomore season with all-conference honors at Arizona Western, with 81 tackles (21 solo), 7 for loss, 2 sacks and 2 fumbles recovered. He visited UL, Ohio State and Western Michigan before committing to the Cajuns.
Several other junior college athletes that visited earlier this month have not made final decisions as of late Wednesday night. It is possible that UL may pick up one or two more junior college transfers before the end of the early signing period.
