Four-star athlete Devin White is thinking about pulling the trigger soon. Get more on White and other top in-state prospects inside...

  • North Webster four-star 2016 athlete Devin White said on Twitter that he's thinking about ending his recruitment soon. It seems a no-brainer that he'll pick LSU, his long-time favorite. The biggest question for White is position. He primarily plays running back for North Webster but is projected by many to man a linebacker spot in college. White has been helping LSU recruit four-star John Curtis Christian 2016 offensive tackle Willie Allen for some time. White and Allen went head-to-head on the basketball court in the Class 3A playoffs a few weeks ago. North Webster won that game, upsetting the top-seeded Patriots.

  • Hahnville three-star wide receiver Rickey Preston was offered by Nebraska. Hahnville will be moving to the double-wing offense this year under a new coach, but that could result in good things for Preston, who excels as a blocker. Look for him to be a big threat running the football out of the wingback position.

  • East Jefferson three-star cornerback Deshawn Raymond reported a new offer from Mississippi State. The 6-foot-1 junior says Auburn could offer this weekend. East Jeff was the highest ranked team in the nation among Louisiana schools this past season.

  • Three-star defensive tackle Kameron Eloph and 2016 cornerback C.J. Morgan, both of Parkway, went on a Texas tour early this week after Eloph participated - and won OL MVP - at the National Underclassmen Combine Five-Star Showcase east of Baton Rouge. The duo from Bossier City visited Texas A&M for practice, followed by stops at Baylor and TCU. They were expected to see SMU, too, but the visit to TCU last longer than initially planned.

  • Another Bossier City prospect, Airline defensive tackle Charlie Matthews, was originally planning to visit TCU this week. He bumped that visit until April, according to TCU expert Jeremy Clark. It's expected that Matthews will pledge to the Horned Frogs after the visit.

  • Saint Paul's 2015 wide receiver Jalen McCleskey could see his stock rise after a dominant performance on the 7v7 circuit earlier this month. McCleskey, who holds an offer from South Florida, was near the top of the rankings at both the Orlando and New Orleans Nike SPARQ Combines.

  • Many three-star offensive tackle Garrett Thomas is visiting Ole Miss today, per his head coach, Jess Curtis. Coach Curtis revealed last weekend that the Rebels are making a big push in an attempt to gain ground on Auburn. Thomas has never listed an outright leader, but it's no secret that he likes Auburn a great deal. The Tigers were his second offer - after only Michigan - and the Auburn staff has consistently stayed in touch with the 6-foot-6, 310-pounder.

  • Notre Dame offered four-star wide receiver Derrick Dillon (Pine).

  • Kansas State offered Riverside Academy outside linebacker Joe Anderson (6-4, 230).

  • South Alabama offered JUCO linebacker/defensive end Claude George, who prepped at Acadiana.

  • Tennessee offered JUCO wide receiver/kick returner Jeryl Brazil, who prepped at Loranger and began his collegiate career at LSU.

  • McKinley 2015 DL Daniel James has accumulated a handful of Ivy League offers, including Princeton.

  • Princeton also offered Warren Easton three-star linebacker Arthur McGinnis, who says UCLA, Georgia, Tennessee and Texas A&M are showing the most interest.

  • The Cajuns could be in the driver's seat for Miller McCoy Academy DL Brian Webb, who had an extensive talk with UL coach Tim Rebowe earlier this week.

  • Ponchatoula three-star defensive end Reggie Walker named Mississippi State his leader, even though the Bulldogs haven't offered yet. Walker visited Starkville last weekend.
