Liggins Visiting Tech This Weekend

Levander Liggins of Leesville High School was one of the most dominant players in the state of Louisiana last season, and the senior WR is taking an official visit to Louisiana Tech this weekend. Is there a chance that he'll commit?

Levander Liggins left defensive coordinators dazed and confused last year, torching their units for over 2,000 combined yards rushing and receiving, and there's a chance that the senior from Leesville will continue his career as a Louisiana Tech Bulldog.

This weekend, Liggins will take an official visit to Tech. Is he thinking about committing during the visit?

"We're going to see how things turn out, but that's how it's looking," said Liggins. "Coach (Tommy) Spangler is recruiting me for Tech and school-wise, Tech has a lot to offer me and I have a lot to offer them."

Liggins was a virtual machine for the Class 4A Wampus Cats in 2010, rushing for 977 yards and 16 TDs on 99 carries and catching 54 passes for 1,189 yards and 17 more touchdowns.

"I loved it," he said of his senior campaign. "I loved every day, both practicing and playing the games."

Leesville posted a 9-3 mark, reaching the second-round of the playoffs before running into eventual state champion Franklinton. The Wampus Cats had a highly-productive and explosive offense, scoring at least 34 points in nine contests. They scored a minimum of 50 points in four games, including a 69-point outburst vs. Alexandria Senior High.

Liggins ran for 226 yards and three TDs in the ASH game, as well as 148 yards and three more scores the previous week vs. Peabody.

In the receiving department, Liggins hauled in eight catches for 158 yards and three TDs vs. Class 5A state runner-up West Monroe. Moreover, he caught five passes for 132 yards and two touchdowns against Sulphur. In the first-round of the playoffs, Liggins recorded a six-catch, 180-yard (two TD) performance vs. Huntington.
