Cajuns Offer JuCo Receiver

Louisiana's Ragin'Cajuns will lose Jason Chery and Derrick Smith at the wide receiver position after the 2008 season. The Cajuns will return some talented underclassmen, but the coaching staff is looking to the junior college ranks to fill one scholarship.

The Cajun staff invited Hinds Community College WR prospect Vernon Wolfe in for a visit this past weekend for the UTEP game. The 6-1, 185-pound athlete missed four games during the season, but still managed to catch 33 passes, for 395 yards and 2 TD in just five games. How did Vernon Wolfe enjoy his visit to Louisiana and what are his plans.

"I really like UL, said Wolfe." "My roommate and I came in Friday night and we love the Lafayette area. We had a chance to drive around campus and look at the indoor facility, weight room and the locker room; it's a nice school."

"What did the coaches tell you about the opportunity to play next season?

"They told me I would have the opportunity to learn the offense during the spring and play a lot next fall, stated Vernon." "I watched film with Coach Mason and I like the offense and the way they use Jason Chery. They told me that they will throw the ball more next season, so that certainly peeked my interest."

As a full qualifier out of high school, Wolfe is not subject to degree progress requirements for non-qualifiers. He would be eligible to transfer at the end of the fall semester and participate in spring practice.

"That is something of an advantage for me, Said Wolfe." "I can come in the spring and learn the offense, and work out over the summer with the quarterbacks. It's something that schools look at when they want someone to come in and help immediately."

Despite missing four games, Wolfe has been invited to the 2008 MACJC All-Star game on December 6th.

"Yes, that is a great honor to be invited to the all-star game, Wolfe said." "I missed four games, but I worked really hard to prove myself on the field and help my team."

Vernon Wolfe has had interest from Mississippi State and Ole Miss, but he has not been offered any unofficial visits yet.

"I haven't heard anything from either lately, said Vernon." "I going to take several visits and then make my decision after the all-star game. UL is definitely a program I would enjoy playing for next season."
