Louisiana 2015 Watch List: No. 8

6-foot-3, 240-pound tight end/defensive end Bry'Kiethon Mouton checks in next on the watch list. The sophomore is mostly known thus far for his pass-catching skills, although he might make the move to defense on the next level. Find out more inside...

Two south-central Louisiana sophomores -- Bry'Kiethon Mouton (Acadiana) and Rhashid Bonnette (Loreauville) -- led the region in yardage per catch last year.

Mouton accounted for 22.4 yards per catch (21-470, nine touchdowns) during the regular season for Acadiana, one of the state's premier 5A schools.

Approximately nine additional catches and another TD were credited to Mouton's stats during the playoffs.

He does a good job of hustling out of his stance - and past linebackers - at the snap.

Mouton led Acadiana's basketball squad to the playoffs this year, regularly scoring 20-or-more points per game for the Rams.

On film vs. NISH he makes a brilliant one-handed leaping grab on a short route across the field, and then outraces the secondary to paydirt.

As a blocker, Mouton locks onto the assigned target and is able to drive most defenders a dozen yards off the line of scrimmage.

He also does a nice job of selling the fake by making initial contact with pass-rushers, and then scooting into the clear down-field to make a catch.

With his size Mouton can make a defender look silly. For example, he easily shook off a would-be tackler (that didn't properly wrap up) vs. state runner-up Barbe.

During a January interview, he named LSU, USC, Florida State and Alabama as schools of interest.
