LeBlanc's stock is on the rise

It's hard to believe that a 6-foot-6, first-team all-state senior is a sleeper on the recruiting scene, but that's exactly the case with Cecilia WR/S William LeBlanc.

"Memphis is trying to set up a visit for me, and UL came to my basketball game Saturday night to watch me, Montrel (Carter), and Jacob Carmouche (Beau Chene)," said Cecilia WR/S William LeBlanc. "I like LSU the best, and so I might sign a track scholarship there and walk-on for football."

LeBlanc earned first-team all-state honors at safety this year for the Class 4A Bulldogs, and he might be the tallest safety in the nation, let alone Louisiana.

Although LeBlanc is listed at 6-foot-4 in the all-state materials, the senior says that he's actually 6-foot-6 -- which makes his physical play even more impressive; it's almost unheard of for a defensive back to stand that tall.

"I like safety better than wide receiver," LeBlanc said. "Safety is more fun, because you get to hit people. I had 91 tackles last year, eight interceptions -- four pick-sixes -- four forced fumbles, and two fumble recoveries.

"On offense, I caught around 20 passes with three touchdowns. I don't know the exact numbers or the yardage."

As a junior, LeBlanc said that he recorded 71 tackles and "three to four interceptions."

He won state in the high jump as a sophomore and finished second as a junior. He's been ranked as high as 6th in the nation in that event.

LeBlanc reports a 2.5 GPA and an 18 on the ACT. He's taking the test again on the next date that it's offered.
