Louisiana Notebook

Houston commit Donald Gage (Zachary WR) added a new offer from a regional FBS program that's had sustained success recruiting Louisiana prospects (especially receivers)...

  • Donald Gage is in the process of setting up official visits, per a source in the Houston commit's camp. Gage pulled in an offer this week from Southern Miss, which joins Illinois, Kentucky and the New Orleans Bowl-bound Cajuns on the list of programs that have offered the senior since his verbal to Houston.

  • Houston got a new commitment from three-star Ouachita linebacker Caleb Tucker, who had been previously pledged to Washington for six months. Tucker cited Houston's location and the persistence of Cougars recruiter Brandon Middleton as reasons behind the move.

  • St. Augustine five-star Leonard Fournette told TigerSportsDigest.com recruiting analyst Austin Cooper that LSU, Alabama, Notre Dame "and pretty much everybody else is still in it." Fournette is the nation's top-ranked junior RB.

  • Kaleb Blanchard (Denham Springs) de-committed from Arkansas and told TCU recruiting expert Jeremiah Glenn that the Frogs are in his current top three along with LSU and Tennessee. Blanchard is a three-star ranked 61st in the nation among 2013 running backs.

  • Davon Godchaux (Plaquemine) told TSD's Cooper that the Cajuns are his most recent offer. Godchaux, rated three stars and the nation's No. 18 junior defensive end, only has two offers thus far but says Notre Dame and LSU are showing major interest.

  • Florida State commit Ryan Hoefeld (Brother Martin) changed the date of his official visit with the Seminoles to January 25th, slightly later than the previously-scheduled weekend. Hoefeld was named 5A first-team all-state this week and honored as the state's best o-lineman (nola.com's Blind Side Award).

  • A second Brother Martin o-lineman, 2014 three-star William Clapp, was named first-team all-state. Clapp, who wants to commit prior to the start of his senior season, specifically mentioned LSU, Alabama and Texas A&M during an interview last night. More details coming...

  • John Curtis Christian LB Duke Riley reeled in offer No. 15 from the Kentucky Wildcats. He's coming off an official visit to Minnesota with subsequent trips to Tulane and Ole Miss on deck in January.

  • Four-star junior offensive guard Garrett Brumfield (University Lab) plans to attend junior day events at LSU and Texas A&M, per his father. Brumfield, who was offered by the Aggies last week, is hearing from the "entire SEC" and also Notre Dame. The Irish, along with Georgia and Mississippi State, are flooding Brumfield's mailbox.

  • 2014 DB Daniel Lewis (New Iberia Senior) visited a recent Ragin' Cajuns bowl practice. Also present was four-star LSU commit Josh Boutte (Westgate). Boutte will play in the U.S. Army All-American game next month.

  • 2017 University Lab athlete Dylan Moses is set to star in the Eastbay All-American Bowl next month in San Antonio. U-High fans are eager to see how head coach Chad Mahaffey will utilize Moses and 2015 RB Nicholas Brossette on next year's squad.

  • Jermaine Antoine is taking the ACT again and might not ink anywhere until after National Signing Day. Antoine says TCU will get an official visit next month. He took an unofficial to North Texas during the Thanksgiving holidays and says North Texas recruiter Justin Gaines traveled to Loreauville for multiple recent in-home visits.

  • Hybrid OLB/DE Gerald Brent (Higgins) has been aggressively marketing himself with a nice set of senior highlights, and yesterday the Southern Jaguars took notice with a scholarship offer that Brent accepted immediately.

  • Nicholls State informed Loreauville senior WR John Reed (pictured below) that his offer was "official." Reed is expected to announce his commitment to Nicholls in the near future.
