"Their coaching staff is approaching it well," said Abraham, whose primary contact is assistant Bryan Applewhite. "They're good people. ULM is a nice size school and I would like to know more about it. I'd like to stay in Louisiana."
Abraham, who is considering an unofficial visit to Monroe to see the campus, has talked to the ULM coaches about playing wide receiver or cornerback in college. When he attended ULM's camp in Sulphur earlier this month, he showed off his skills as a pass-catcher.
"We ran routes and stuff and I caught a few go routes over the top of other players' heads," he said. "I'm not bragging but I did it multiple times and they were telling me, ‘good job.' There were pretty good athletes out there too."
The competition for his services includes McNeese State and Louisiana Tech, who have also made offers, Abraham said. He's also heard from Northwestern State, Southeastern Louisiana, and Louisiana-Lafayette.
Abraham is a multi-sport athlete who ran the anchor leg on Jennings' Class 4A state championship 4x100 relay team.
"I've been training real hard and working out," he said. "I dropped baseball for the summer to focus on football. I have a better chance in football. I'm staying focused, conditioning, eating well and getting myself ready."
Abraham said the next chance to showcase his talents arrives with the Doug Williams skills camp on June 24 in Baton Rouge. Williams is a former NFL quarterback who played at Grambling State. Abraham also plans to go to LSU's camp. A solid student, Abraham said his GPA is around 3.0. He scored 17 on his first ACT attempt but he's taking the test again on June 12 to improve his score.
"It's always been my dream to play college football," Abraham said. "Finally the time has come all of a sudden and I wouldn't want to waste it."
