Warhawk Nation caught up with Ouachita head coach John Carr to get his thoughts on the Warhawks newest commitment Justin Ginyard.
"ULM offered after their junior day and Justin wanted to commit that day. I told him to sleep on it because this is a big decision and I expect him fulfill his commitment. He called me the next morning and told me he wanted to commit to ULM so I called Coach Berry and we set up a meeting today".
In Ginyard the Warhawks get a big physical wide out with great hands and even better blocking skills.
"The thing that separates Justin is from every other receiver is how physical he is", said Carr.
"Not only that but he is an excellent blocker. We will use him to block the backside or take on a DE as well as being a great down field blocker".
It also appears that the Warhawks are committed to keeping a great relationship going with Coach Carr and his staff.
"I think it started back with Lagregory Sapp and then Cameron Blakes, and now Justin Ginyard", said Carr. These kids go to ULM and have great experiences and they come back and tell the younger kids about it and word of mouth spreads fast".
"Playing in a conference where you have a shot at a bowl game, being close to home with friends and family also play big factors into it as well".
Ginyard enjoyed a very good junior season hauling in 26 passes for 544 yards and 6 touchdowns.
"He's up to 6'2 and 212 pounds now", said Carr. I really don't think he is through growing. The thing is he can carry that weight and still be a fluid runner. Justin is a strength competitor. He is also a kid you can ride and grind and he won't shut down on you. He deserves this".
"I sat down with Justin when he was a Freshman and he told me his goals. He wanted to be a dominate high school player and then play college football. He has taken all the necessary steps to make that happen".
Justin has also worked hard in the classroom according to Carr as he is academically qualified with a 18 on his ACT and near a 3.0 GPA.
