Tech Offer Coming Soon?

Lamar Louis, the junior RB/LB from Teurlings Catholic, is receiving interest from several schools, including Louisiana Tech.

"Coach (Pierre) Ingram is recruiting me for Louisiana Tech," said Lamar Louis, the junior running back/linebacker from Teurlings Catholic HS. "He's a pretty cool guy. Tech wants me at running back and they're saying I could get early playing time - that's one of the main things that's important to me."

Louis sat out last year after transferring from Breaux Bridge High School, but that hasn't kept schools such as Florida and Texas A&M from showing heavy interest. In fact, the staffs at the two aforementioned programs have told Louis that he has a preliminary offer on the table.

"I went to Texas A&M this weekend with our quarterback, Dshaie Landor," said Louis. "Coach (Jim) Turner told me they want to see me play a couple of games this year, and then they'll make the offer official. He says they'll have a spot for me, and they like the fact that I'm a big back."

While Louis prefers the running back position, he isn't ruling out the possibility of playing linebacker on the next level.

"I'm open to it, depending on the situation," he said, when asked about playing defense in college. "I'm keeping my options open."

Louis attended the recent Junior Day at UL and he likes the Cajuns.

"UL is one of my three favorites," said Louis. "Texas A&M, UL, and LSU or Florida (in random order). The new staff at UL is doing great things. They're headed in the right direction."

UL has also offered Louis a scholarship.
