Beverly Talks Commitment to Ragin’ Cajuns

Beaumont West Brook HS offensive lineman Al Beverly (6’5,330) switched his commitment his to the Ragin’ Cajuns from Louisiana Tech after visiting Lafayette. Go inside the Cajun Redzone for the rest of the story!

Al Beverly made a decision earlier this summer to commitment to the Louisiana Tech Bulldogs program with the intentions of playing his college career in Ruston. But the big senior offensive lineman made a decision to travel to Lafayette and take a closer look at the Ragin’ Cajuns football program. After visiting the campus several times, Beverly reevaluated his decision to commit early to the Bulldogs and decided that he felt more comfortable in Lafayette.

“I just felt more comfortable with the environment, the coaching staff and the program as a whole,” Beverly stated.”

Beverly’s decision was not based upon anything that the Louisiana Tech program did, the decision to change his commitment was entirely his to make.

“The decision was mostly mine, but I did confide with my mother,” Al said. “My decision had nothing to do with playing closer to home, but that fact that I just felt more comfortable with the staff and the program. They just made me feel more like family and coach Rodrigue is the kind of offensive line coach I wanted to play for in college.”

With several players from Beaumont currently on the Ragin’ Cajuns roster, Al Beverly spoke to Ken Marks (Beaumont Central) and Michael Jacquet (Beaumont Central) before making his decision to commit.

“I spoke to both of them about the staff and the program,” Beverly stated. “I just wanted to know what they had to say about the program and playing in Lafayette.”

Al Beverly reported offers from Louisiana, Tulane, Tulsa, Louisiana Tech and Southeastern Louisiana.

Note: The Cajuns offered Al Beverly’s teammate Dan Moore Jr. yesterday after his first unofficial visit to Louisiana. Moore is currently a junior at Beaumont West Brook HS.
