Louisiana Notebook

Four-star LSU commit Josh Boutte (Westgate) is on an official visit this weekend with the Ragin' Cajuns in Lafayette. What's the word on his signing day intentions? Find out inside...

  • U.S. Army All-American Josh Boutte raised eyebrows -- and the hopes of Cajuns' fans -- when he decided to visit head coach Mark Hudspeth and staff this weekend. In December, Boutte canceled his first official to LSU. That same weekend, the hulking o-lineman attended a Cajuns' bowl practice and was given a tour of facilities along with New Iberia Senior High junior prospect Daniel Lewis.

    When contacted Saturday afternoon, sources close to Boutte described the visit as a "courtesy" and stated that he'll sign with LSU on Wednesday. The good-natured Boutte seems to have had fun with the whole thing, recently donning a Cajuns sweatshirt at school.

    Anything is possible in recruiting, so it's worth noting that nothing is set in stone until letters of intent are signed and faxed on Wednesday.

  • Walker athlete Carlton Perkins was expected to visit the Cajuns this weekend but didn't show. It appears that Perkins didn't visit anywhere this weekend. North Texas, Memphis and Minnesota are three other schools that have shown consistent interest in Perkins over the long haul.

  • 2017 RB/LB Dylan Moses (University Lab) was impressive at yesterday's Nike SPARQ combine, clocking a 4.15 shuttle after measuring in at 6-1, 210 pounds. Moses' shuttle was in the 99% percentile. His overall rating was a 101.70.

  • Edna Karr four-star wide receiver Devante Noil was invited to The Opening after his SPARQ performance. The junior jumped nearly 42 feet. Noil expects to move to wide receiver full-time as a senior while Kerry Taylor will take over at quarterback for the defending Class 4A state champs.

  • Scotlandville RB Dontrell Hilliard had a 3.96 shuttle and sub-4.4 40-yard dash at the Nike SPARQ event. Hilliard ran for 157 yards on 25 carries in the final game of his junior year, a 13-8 loss to New Iberia in the first-round of the Class 5A playoffs.

  • New Iberia LB Dre Fusilier is looking for an offer after Grambling State decided not to pull the trigger on last weekend's official visit. The Tigers indicated to Fusilier that they'd offer on the visit, and he intended on accepting immediately.

  • Tulane QB commit Tanner Lee threw for 188 yards and two touchdowns as Orleans Parish defeated Jefferson Parish in the 14th annual Lake Pontchartrain all-star classic Saturday. McDonogh #35 WR Roland Jenkins (ULM commit), West Jefferson WR Ronald Lewis (Arizona State commit), Archbishop Shaw WR Kent Shelby (McNeese State commit), and Carver RB Eugene Brazley (Ole Miss commit) all scored touchdowns.

  • Tulane hosted Tampa Plant WR Tristan Cooper this weekend. Cooper, who prepped at University Lab prior to his senior year, is considering Ball State, Florida Atlantic and the Green Wave.

  • LSU linebacker commit Duke Riley apparently dominated the competition in the hurdles at yesterday's indoor track and field meet held at McNeese State. More specific details forthcoming as they become available.

  • LSU was at Many High School last week to once again check on 2015 offensive lineman Garrett Thomas (6-6, 290). Michigan also contacted Many head coach Jess Curtis to ask about Thomas.

  • Hahnville 2015 WR/DB Jai Knight ran a 4.49 at the Nike SPARQ combine.
