Louisiana QB Lands 1st Offer

Brandon Bergeron had a stellar junior season for Class 4A St. Thomas More in 2011, leading the Cougars to the quarterfinals, and the '13 prospect from Lafayette has his first scholarship offer.

"Memphis came down to our school and offered last week," said Brandon Bergeron, the soon-to-be senior from south Louisiana.

"Coach (Galen) Scott is the Memphis coach who offered. He talked to me about our team and their team, and told me he had sized me up and their head coach wanted to offer right away."

What else did Coach Scott have to say?

"He said the Memphis coaches like how I throw the ball," added Bergeron. "They like my decision-making and feel like I can make the throws for them in college.

"It's great to get that first offer. My family was very happy. Arkansas State, Houston and UL (Ragin' Cajuns) have been here, and Tulane, ULM, Mississippi State and LSU are supposed to come. I'm going to hit up a bunch of camps this summer."

Bergeron was a very effective passer last year for the Cougars. He was 20-of-25 for 267 yards vs. 5A playoff club Westgate and connected on 17-of-28 for 275 yards and four TDs in a 41-27 win over north Louisiana power Evangel Christian in a contest that was televised statewide.

He loses a few favorite targets in RB/WR Matt Flores (Northwestern State signee), WR Andrew Stevenson (LSU baseball signee) and TE Jordan Murray, but will have a couple of experienced receivers returning, including '13 WR Jake Juneau.
