Deante Triplett Has Offers

Big running back has Louisiana Tech on his list of teams.

Deante Triplett was named to the New Orleans Times-Picayune Top 25 Blue Chip list. At 5'10" and 220 pounds, he looks the part.

Triplett holds offers from Louisiana Tech and Tulane. He is also receiving interest from USM, Memphis, Ole Miss, and Northern Illinois.

Deante recently camped at Ole Miss along with teammate Lamin Barrow. He posted a 4.5 40 yard dash and a verticle jump of 35" in Oxford.

Triplett said he and Barrow may travel togehter again, this time to Louisiana Tech's home opener against Mississippi State. "We're thinking about going," he said. "We've already talked about it."

Triplett said he has not been to Tech or Tulane yet, but plans to visit soon. "I talk to Coach Joseph at Tech," said Triplett. "I call him to check in."

Last season was Triplett's first to play running back. "I played defense my freshman and sophomore years," he explained. "Last year went good, but I still need to work on some things."

Deante may not be used to his position yet, but he can start getting used to college coaches coming around. With a big year on the horizon, his stock is only going to go up.
