  • Beal owns the frame requisite for multiple positions as he projects to the college level: tight end, defensive end, even offensive tackle. But his double-digit offers all appear to be for tight end, where he's a huge prospect with intriguing athletic ability. Schools such as AlabamaAuburnLSU, and Ole Miss want Beal.

Tony St. Julien, RB, Vinton (La.)

  • St. Julien proved his athleticism at The Opening Dallas in early March, when he ran a laser-timed 4.45-second 40. He's picked up half a dozen FBS offers in a short time period, including his first Power Five offer from Ole Miss.

Jeremiah McDonald, Safety, Slidell (La.) Northshore

  • Like receiver, the secondary spots are loaded in Louisiana for 2018. McDonald is one of the fastest-risers thanks to great junior tape and a strong performance at The Opening Houston in early February. McDonald recently hit double-digit offers, including P5 offers from Northwestern, Ole Miss, Vanderbilt, and Virginia.

Ja'Marr Chase, WR, Metairie (La.) Archbishop Rummel

  • More than 30 schools have offered Chase, an imposing receiver at a solid 6-foot-1, 193 pounds. He stretches the field vertically and gains plenty of yards after the catch. Arkansas, Auburn, Florida, LSU, Ole Miss, TCU, and Tennessee are among Chase's numerous offers.

Jammal Houston, WR, Marrero (La.) John Ehret

http://www.scout.com/player/210538-jammal-houston?s=73

  • Houston could play either side of the ball at the P5 level, but will likely wind up on offense as yet another talented receiver in the 2018 class from "The Boot." Houston's offer list exploded this semester and approaches 30 with the spring evaluation period looming. LSU, Arkansas, Auburn, Georgia, and others have offered.
