Louisiana Notebook

Penn State offered four-star WR Mykel Jones from Patterson earlier this month, and head coach James Franklin handed out another offer in Louisiana last night to John Curtis Christian safety Hunter Dale...

NITTANY LIONS IN NOLA

Penn State made offer No. 11 last night to Hunter Dale, the three-star safety out of John Curtis Christian. Florida, Miami, Arizona State and Mississippi State are some of Dale's prior offers. Last year the 6-0, 185-pounder intercepted eight passes for the nationally ranked Patriots. By comparison, Curtis teammates Terrence Alexander (Stanford cornerback signee) and Mattrell McGraw (Oregon safety signee) combined to pick off two. Dale started for John Curtis' national championship team two years ago.

BOSTON COLLEGE IN THE BOOT

Another northeast program has started making its presence known in Louisiana. Last night Boston College put a preliminary offer on the table to Parkway offensive lineman Kameron Eloph, who said the Eagles will make it official after they review his transcript. Louisiana Tech has offered Eloph, who paved the way for many big plays by quarterback Brandon Harris (LSU) and running back William McKnight in 2013. Parkway reached the Class 5A state finals before losing to Acadiana. Eloph measures in the 6-foot-2 to 6-foot-3 range at approximately 275 pounds.

WEBB BLOWING UP

Miller-McCoy Academy 2015 defensive tackle Brian Webb got his third offer in four days when Louisiana Tech jumped on board this morning. Mississippi State offered the 6-foot-3, 260-pounder yesterday, while Tulane was his first offer. He attended Tulane's Saturday practice.

AGGIES OFFER LSU COMMIT

2017 athlete Dylan Moses traveled to College Station Sunday and was rewarded with an offer from head coach Kevin Sumlin. Tennessee and Texas A&M are two of Moses' most recent offers. He started at inside linebacker for a University Lab team that finished runner-up in Class 3A to John Curtis Christian. Moses recorded more than one 20-plus tackle performance during his frosh season.

EAGLES CHASING WILDCATS

Southern Miss extended offers to a pair of East Saint John Wildcats: three-star defensive back Antonio Parks and running back Nigel Anderson. South Alabama also offered Parks this week.

LAGNIAPPE

John Ehret outside linebacker Michael Divinity (2016) and Destrehan three-star running back Kirk Merritt (2015) both spoke with UCLA yesterday. The Bruins were the first school to get in contact with Divinity, a 6-foot-3, 200-pound all-district selection who began his career across the Mississippi River at John Curtis Christian, home to UCLA four-star linebacker signee Kenny Young.

Westgate 2016 offensive lineman Taylor Fondal is making a name for himself. He's the son of Anderson Middle School's legendary head football coach (Glenn Fondal). Anderson, located on the west side of New Iberia along with Westgate, routinely goes undefeated and untested. Fondal bounced back from a freshman injury to handle business as a sophomore. His head coach, Ryan Antoine, has big plans in store for the young lineman.
