Chevis camps with Tigers, Cajuns

Speedy '13 RB/WR Jamal Chevis camped with LSU last week and the local Ragin' Cajuns over the weekend.

Jamal Chevis is a sleeper only in terms of his offer sheet. The senior from south Louisiana is looking for his initial offer and believes it could come from the New Orleans Bowl champion Ragin' Cajuns in Lafayette.

"When I walked up to the camp (on Sunday), the coaches were calling me 'Mr. 4.3,'" said Chevis, who actually ran a little faster than 4.30 at the Cajuns' first camp.

"The coaches expected the same (speed) again. I ran a 4.38 the first time. I wasn't comfortable with that because I knew I could fun faster. The second time I ran a 4.30."

Chevis got good feedback from the staff.

"Coach Reed Stringer said he's going to come see me this season," Chevis said. "Coach Hud (Hudspeth) said, 'Be patient; we want you to be a Cajun."

LSU hosted Chavis early last week.

"Now that camp was the best of the best," he said. "They had the opportunity period where I caught three TDs in one-on-one coverage. They had some good wide receivers there like Malachi Dupre (LSU offer) and Trey Quinn (LSU offer).

"Honestly, I feel like Trey Quinn and I were the best two receivers there."

Chevis talked about his goal for 2012.

"It's definitely the playoffs," he answered. "That's my goal. I'm not worried about myself. I'm worried about the playoffs. I'm focused on my team. We went 3-7 last year, but we lost some close games."

4A Beau Chene takes on 3A Church Point and DT Dexter Charles in week one next month. Church Point prevailed in 2011 by a 14-0 margin.
