Central three-star 2015 wide receiver Terrell Chatman was one of several in-state juniors to land a new offer yesterday...
Terrell Chatman reached out to the Wake Forest staff and received a warm response in the form of a new offer. Tulane offered Chatman last weekend, and reportedly he's very close to an Arizona offer. Wake offered Silliman Institute three-star defensive tackle Jozie Milton late last week.
Georgia Tech made offer No. 14 yesterday to Milton, who will visit Southern Miss and the Ragin' Cajuns in Lafayette later this month. The Milton camp believes that Illinois could be next, with Oregon "showing strong interest."
Arizona is also evaluating Woodlawn-Shreveport three-star defensive back Henry Black, who has pocketed multiple new offers over the past couple of weeks. Black teamed up with Texas A&M signee Donovan Wilson last year in the Woodlawn secondary.
Look for University Lab 2016 defensive back Malik Antoine to grab his first BCS offer soon. Antoine is a tremendous talent who only has an Akron offer thus far. U-High, which only lost to nationally ranked John Curtis Christian last year, returns a wealth of talent in 2014 with four-star RB Nicholas Brossette (LSU commit), Florida DB commit Tre Jackson (2016), all-world linebacker/running back Dylan Moses (2017 LSU commit) and QB Manny Miles.
Cincinnati is sizing up Comeaux three-star wide receiver Hunter Register, who visited the Cajuns' campus yesterday for practice but departed without an offer.
Louisiana Tech is the first offer for Dutchtown 2015 safety Alonzo Creighton, a very athletic 6-2, 180-pounder who performed admirably at the New Orleans Nike SPARQ. He'll visit Louisiana Tech this weekend and the Cajuns later his month. Creighton is high on Miami, as well.
Parkway three-star defensive tackle Kameron Eloph reeled in a cool three offers yesterday from Arkansas State, Tulane and the Cajuns. That comes on the heels of last weekend's offer from Louisville. Eloph could be the recipient of a Georgia Tech offer in upcoming days. He's set to talk with the Tech staff again today.
LSU defensive end commit Isaiah Washington reported a new offer from Florida yesterday. The three-star junior is the country's No. 47 DE.
As mentioned yesterday, Alabama is eager to host four-star Woodlawn defensive tackle T.D. Moton on its campus, and the Tide will get the opportunity next month when Moton and Henry Black travel to Tuscaloosa April 19.
No. 4 St. Augustine narrowly missed an upset of top-seeded Scotlandville in a Class 5A semifinal basketball game last night in Lake Charles, according to nola.com's Jerit Roser. Louisiana Tech wide receiver signee Marlon Watts provided St. Aug (27-9) with a one-point lead on a dunk with less than a minute remaining, but the defending state champs were able to escape by sinking a pair of free throws with only nine seconds left. Scotlandville (35-1) moves on to this weekend's finals versus the winner of No. 2 Natchitoches Central/No. 19 Thibodaux.
TCU expert Jeremy Clark reported that Nebraska three-star running back commit Kendall Bussey has added new offers from Arizona State, Missouri and TCU. Bussey originally committed to Tulane before switching to Nebraska, which signed three New Orleans standouts from Edna Karr this year.
Nebraska and Arkansas State both offered Warren Easton three-star linebacker Arthur McGinnis, who stood out at the New Orleans Nike SPARQ with a Top 10 rating and excellent size (6-2 1/2, 222 lbs.). Georgia offered McGinnis last Friday.
Another prospect who turned heads at the SPARQ Combine was St. Augustine athlete Lanard Fournette, younger brother of LSU five-star running back signee Leonard Fournette. Lanard, a three-star junior running back/slot receiver, turned in a 4.31 shuttle with a 4.57 in the 40. He'll obviously get many more touches in 2014 with his brother an hour north in Baton Rouge. The Purple Knights also return three-star wide receiver Stanley Morgan.
Courtney Walker of Varsity Preps says Arkansas is serious about Haynesville middle linebacker Kendrick Jackson. Last year, Jackson led Haynesville to a perfect season and another Class A state title.
Oklahoma State went ahead and pulled the trigger with an offer to John Ehret 2016 outside linebacker Michael Divinity, who began his career across the Mississippi River on the East Bank at John Curtis Christian.
