8/7 LA Tech Recruiting Notes

Camp starts Sunday. Here is a look at where several recruits stand with Louisiana Tech.

Carey Fortson from Longview, TX starts us off. "Louisiana Tech is in the top five schools that I'm looking at," said the wide receiver. Fortson talked about the oppurtunity to play close to home and the fact that Louisiana Tech has several East Texas players on the roster. "It's very important," he added. "Anytime you see familiar faces, it makes you more comfortable in that situation." Fortson has offers from Louisiana Tech, Kansas State, SMU, and UNT.

A little ways down Interstate 20, Shreveport Booker T. Washington receiver Cassius Washington is wrapping up his summer. "I just got back from Mississippi State," he said. "I have offers from Louisiana Tech and Northwestern State. I plan on making my decision by December." Washington has Louisiana Tech and Mississippi State as his favorites.

Glen Coleman said he will make his decision close to signing day. Tech is battling Southern Miss and Tulsa among others for the West Jefferson receiver. Coleman made it over to Ruston for Louisiana Tech's camp last month. "It was nice," he said. "I had a great time but I was only out there for two days." Coleman said he hasn't received any new offers.

Two Louisiana linebackers have updates. Seth Ancar added a Tulane offer and Dwayne Mitchell, from Edna Karr, has Minnesota, Tech, ULL, and ULM on his list of offers. Both players plan to be in Ruston for a home game early in the season.

Ashton Duhe, from Destrehan, is getting a ton of attention. He is hearing from Ohio State, Michigan, Georgia Tech, UCF, and TCU. Duhe has offers from Tulane, Louisiana Tech, Southern Miss, and South Alabama among others.

BleedTechBlue.com also spoke with Jacolby Hardnett and Tanner Smith. Both players have offers from Louisiana Tech. We will have their interviews posted soon.

The first home game is six weeks out and Tech will start seeing a lot of visitors. We will keep getting updates from all of these players and more.
