Malcolm Pichon: Coach & Teammates' Take

Louisiana Tech secured a commitment from three-star defensive tackle Malcolm Pichon last night, and you can find out what Salmen's head coach and two of Pichon's star senior teammates think about him right here.

Malcolm Pichon, the No. 84-ranked defensive tackle in the country, committed to Louisiana Tech last night. Here's what Pichon's head coach and teammates had to say about him.

Salmen head coach Jerry Leonard: "Obviously, one thing that stands out about Malcolm is his size. For us, he was a very special player - one of the best I've been around. He demanded a double-team, but at the same time he was our second-leading tackler.

"He was very active and made a lot of plays for us, and his work ethic speaks volumes about the type of kid he is...he's a player who turns it on when it's game-time...some people didn't think he could make plays from tackle-to-tackle, but they were proven wrong.

"We'll miss him and I know that he'll do great things up there at Louisiana Tech."

Salmen senior cornerback Chrishawn Dupuy: "He's a helluva athlete who can and will cause problems in the middle. He's a big run-stopper with good lower-body strength and when he grabs you, he isn't going to let go. He has a tremendous wing-span and just needs to work on staying low."

Salmen senior defensive end and basketball standout T.J. Price: "Malcolm is a good player who will surprise a lot of people in college, because I expect him to play as a freshman. He'll probably come in and start as a freshman."
