Several sources including one national recruiting website reported that Scout.com #45 Ranked DE Mario Osborne committed to the Ragin' Cajun's and Coach Mark Hudspeth. Osborne is currently not speaking with the press, but we were able to verify through a source close to the Daphne High football program that he has committed to Louisiana. Osborne finished the season as a 6A All-State and All-Region Defensive Player.
There was little known about the (6'4,265) Osborne going into the start of the 2014 season. There aren't many highlights available for him because he wasn't able to participate in any camps last summer due to an injured shoulder. And he wasn't cleared to start practicing early August.
His preseason rankings varied on different services including Scout.com, in the top 25 players in Alabama. Friday Night Football Alabama magazine put him at No. 50.
We will have a run down on the Ragin' Cajuns full signing class on National Signing Day!
