Dooley on Tour

Louisiana Tech is after a few Louisiana 3 Star players. Coach Dooley visited them this week.

On Monday night, Dooley and Coach Terry Joseph visited Chad Boyd from Shaw and Joey Fontana from Brother Martin.

Boyd said he is down to Tech, Tulane, and Tulsa. "It went well," he said. "We talked about the school and the team. I like Coach Dooley a lot.

Fontana, a SMU commit, said he has has a lot of visitors. "Arkansas came by my school this week. Coach Dooley and Coach Joseph came by my house Monday night and Coach Jones and Coach Reinbold from SMU came by Tuesday night," explained Fontana.

Fontana said he is pretty solid to SMU, but he may consider visiting Tech or Arkansas.

Jordan Mills, a three star lineman like Fontana, said Coach Dooley and Coach Perot came by Tuesday night. He said he is down to Tech, USM, and Tulane. "Being close to home doesn't matter," he said. "Education comes first. I'm open to all three schools and I may visit Nebraska too."

Another three star Tech target, Josh Johns, has at least caught the eye of one fellow recruit. "He blocked our game winning field goal in the second round and ran it back for the winning touchdown," said Joey Fontana.

"I blocked it," explained Johns, "but our cornerback ran it back." Johns blocked two field goals in the game. Central plays Destrehan this week in the 5A semifinals.

Johns has offers from Tech and a few of the State schools. Coach Dooley visited Wednesday night. "They just left my house," said Johns. "We just talked about the season. I will set up an official visit once it's over."

After leaving John's home, Coach Dooley made it to Lafayette. "They are supposed to be here around 8:30," said Acadiana'a D.J. St. Julien.

The next morning, St. Julien said it went well. "I committed," he said. That was all he had to say.

Javontay Crowe from Ruston said he is expecting a visit as well. "Coach Dooley is coming to my house tonight," he said. "Tech is very exciting. They are going to a bowl. I am supposed to make my official visit this weekend."

Louisiana Tech is in good shape with recruiting at this point in the process. With 15 commitments in hand, they are already halfway home. Several of Louisiana's top players are still in the mix for Coach Dooley.
