Steven Korte has already verbally committed to LSU and Christian Ducre hopes he has a chance to follow Korte to Baton Rouge.
As a sophomore Ducre earned All-District honors at running back and he was a
repeat selection as a return specialist last season.
He showed he has good moves when he has the ball in his hands and he finished
with 866 yards and 10 touchdowns with an average of nearly seven yards a carry.
"He's unbelievable," said Fontainebleau head coach Larry Favre. "He runs
through a tackle as good as any kid I've ever had. He has really good
instincts and is really tough to take down for a kid his size."
Perhaps more impressive than the rushing stats Ducre put up was the job he did
on kick and punt returns. He has the ability take it the distance at any given
time and he did so four times during the 2003 season.
"He could go in and return kicks right off the bat," Favre said. "He'll
play Division-I football."
Ducre attended Alabama's Junior Day and the Crimson Tide is showing a lot of
interest. Tulane, Southern Miss and Oklahoma State are also hot on the trail for
this promising prospect, while LSU is only showing a slight amount of interest.
"He wants to stay close to home but I feel like he'll go out of state,"
Southern Miss has done well with recruiting the Mandeville area of late so do
not be surprised if Ducre ends up in Hattiesburg.
However, Tuscaloosa, Ala. is not too far away either.
