It's not hard to imagine that Tech is back in the New Orleans area looking for the top players in 2010. The 2010 class is full of really good players and it all starts up front.
Ashton Duhe from Destrehan is one of the top offensive linemen in the State. He already has offers from Louisiana Tech, ULL, and SMU. Duhe is a mauler and he can play at any spot on the line. In college, he projects as a guard; where he can use his strength to doinate the opposition.
Elliot Porter from Shaw showed solid speed with a 5.3 laser time in the 40. He has great quickness and is a strong prospect as a defensive tackle or an offensive guard. Another very quick prospect at guard is Charles Barkins from O.P. Walker. Barkins hads a really good day, showing strength and quickness. The O.P. Walker offensive line averages 300 pounds, but Barkins is the catalyst. On a side note, the offensive lines from both O.P. Walker and St. Augistine look like college units already and we are talking about 15 and 16 year olds.
Another player that looks the part is O.P. Walker's Urell Johnson. Johnson is tall and lean and already looks like a college safety at 6'2". Both Johnson and Barkins had good times in the 40. Barkins ran a 5.1; a really good time for a 300 pounder. Johnson runs really well. He ran a 4.59 that turned out to be one of the fastest times of the day.
Seth Ancar is a machine. He ran a 4.72 and has absolutely no fat on him. The 5'11" 195 pound linebacker showed why he was the 1A Defensive Player of the year as a junior.
Munchie Legaux was the best quarterback competing on Sunday. He is tall and has very long arms. Munchie made all the throws and proved he is one of Louisiana's premier prospects. He also joined Furious Bradley from Mississippi for best name honors.
Some of the other top players from the area on Sunday were Glen Coleman from West Jefferson, Jarvis Landry from Lutcher, Beau Fitte from South Plaquemines, Calvin Ursin and Kyron King from Destrehan, Anthony Johnson from O.P. Walker, Byron Williams and Tyrann Mathieu from St. Augustine, and James Gillum from Pearl River.
The New Orleans area is ripe with talent again in 2010.
