Cajuns Offer Defensive Lineman

The Ragin' Cajun football program already has one defensive lineman from McDonogh 35 Senior High School in Derek Dean. Are the Cajuns close to adding another for 2009?

McDonogh 35 senior DL/OL Kyle White talked to his good friend Derek Dean about the Louisiana football program during the summer. The 6-2, 300-pound defensive tackle decided to attend the Cajun Football Camp in July and get a get a closer look at the program. White entered camp with scholarship offers from Louisiana Tech and Louisiana-Monroe, but was hoping the Cajun staff would make it three after camp.

"After camp, the UL staff talked to my coach and he told me that they are offering me. I had two offers coming into camp, from ULM and Louisiana Tech. But I really was hoping they were going to offer me as well."

Does playing next to Derek Dean at the next level have some influence on your future decision?

"That would be really great to play next to Derek again, but I'm going to make the best decision for my future. We talked a little about that possibility, but I didn't know if they would offer."

Were do the Cajuns stand out of the three offers that White now holds?

"UL is definitely at the top, out of the three offers that I now hold. I just felt more at home when I talked to some of the players and Derek. The facilities also looked really good as well."

White also attended camps at LSU and Alabama after the camp in Lafayette. What did those staffs tell him about his performance at both camps?

"They both told me pretty much the same things at each camp. The position coaches told me that they liked my foot work and that I used my hands well. I worked only at the defensive line position at both camps."

Kyle White just recently received more good news, as he scored a 20 on his latest ACT test.
