Hahnville's Reynaud gaining prominence

Darius Reynaud's name does not pop up too often when referring to Louisiana's top running backs for the Class of 2004 and with good reason. <br><br> The 5-foot-11, 185-pounder split time at running back and receiver last year for Boutte-Hahnville but he will be the featured back for the Tigers this season. However, he plans on playing receiver when gets into a college program and many coaches agree that that is probably a better fit for him.

As a junior, he showed his big-play ability as a receiver when he hauled in 13 passes for 324 yards and three scores. He has offers from all of his favorites but he has finally figured out which schools he will take official visits to.


"I plan on visiting Colorado, LSU, Michigan State, Oregon State and Nebraska," Reynaud told Tiger Rag. "I want to visit LSU and Nebraska during the season so I can see a game there and then take the others after our season has ended."


Does he have a favorite out of that group?


"Right now I am wide open," he said.


One of Reynaud's closest friends and former teammates is current LSU safety LaRon Landry and The Tigers figure to be a player in the mix.


"I talked to coach Lance Thompson last week and he was asking me what games I wanted to see so he could get me tickets, said Reynaud. "I also talked to LaRon last night about going to some games and he said to come on because that would give me a good opportunity to see what they have to offer."
