Montgomery QB high on Bulldogs

Montgomery High School senior quarterback Cody Stroud is still waiting for that first offer.

But if he had his choice, he knows where he'd hope the first one would come from.

"I still don't have any offers yet," the 6-foot-4, 215-pounder told at a recent practice, "but Tech is my No. 1."

Stroud, who has the Tigers at 4-2 on the season and in the thick of the District 3-1A race, already has made two unofficial trips to Ruston to check out the Bulldogs.

He was on hand when the Bulldogs made their historic victory against Mississippi State in their season opener, and he was on hand again for the win against Southeastern Louisiana.

"I've been at Tech a lot," Stroud said.

Stroud listed four schools that have piqued his interest – Tech, Tulane, LSU and Clemson. Of course, he said, LSU hasn't been in contact much recently, and Clemson recently fired coach Tommy Bowden.

Through six games, Stroud has thrown for nearly 1,400 yards with 10 touchdowns. Cody's 1,372 yards are second in the state to Evangel's Dez Duron. More importantly, his interception rate has dropped dramatically. He's only been intercepted five times after throwing more than 20 picks as a junior.

"Overall, it's a lot better," Stroud said of his senior season. "We've got to get better in a few little aspects, but I think we'll be fine the rest of district."

So far, he doesn't have any official visits scheduled and is leaning toward waiting until after the season is finished to schedule any.

"I think I'll wait until the end of the season because there's more free time," he said, "but if something comes up before, I'll certainly take it."
