RECRUITING: Louisiana QB still open

A record setting quarterback from New Orleans, Santos has been a starter since his freshman year at Holy Cross High School. He set season and career records at Holy Cross in only his sophomore season when he added 2,329 yards and 29 touchdowns to his freshman totals. He added 2,233 yards and 25 touchdowns as a junior.

"I've had a lot of attention lately," Santos said. "Northwestern, Florida Atlantic, Ole Miss, Auburn, Louisiana-Lafayette and Southern Mississippi are schools I am looking hard at."

"Auburn came to see me play and has been in touch with me ever since," Santos said. "I don't have a clear cut leader, just keeping my options open as far as college goes. I don't have any offers yet, so I don't expect to make a decision anytime soon."

Asked if the hometown Wildcats had made any recent calls: "They haven't been in contact," Santos said. "I haven't heard from them since the summer."

Said Dicky on his former teammate at Holy Cross prior to his coming to Lexington: "They said he needed to get faster and he is working on that," Lyons said on Santos. "He'll get his chance to play college football. If it's in the South, then that would be great. Wherever he goes, he's gonna shine."

As far as his season is concerned, Santos again showed why he is one of the better quarterbacks in Louisiana history.

"It went alright ... we went .500 and lost to Evangel in the first round. As for me personally, I had a great year - passed for over 2300 yards and 18 touchdowns."
