"I've got conditional offers from LSU and Auburn," he said. "They said that either after the spring or when I go to their camps and they get to see me that they will probably offer. They just want to see me in person."
Trahan started his junior season at strong safety but after three games he had to move to defensive end. He may be undersized for a traditional defensive end but in St. Aug's scheme he played more of an outside linebacker.
Opposing teams had big problems stopping Trahan due to his speed coming off the corner. He finished his junior campaign with 66 solo tackles, 16 sacks and nine forced fumbles. College coaches are trying to decide where to put Trahan but that is where the debate ends.
"I think I'll probably be better at strong safety but since I played defensive end in our scheme most schools want me as an outside linebacker," he told Tiger Rag. "Once LSU and other schools see me at their camps and see how I am in coverage and my speed then they'll want me at safety. It doesn't matter to me. I just want to play."
Schools from all over the country have expressed serious interest in Trahan and once he gets a qualifying ACT score the offers will start rolling in.
"I really like LSU and Auburn," he said. "Other than that I'm really open to all schools. The rest of my top five right now would be UCLA, Michigan and Colorado."
Is there a leader out of that group?
"I like LSU the most," Trahan said. "I'm from Baton Rouge and I grew up a Tiger fan. My family lives there and I know they put the most money into their program as far as academics. I know if I go to LSU I'll be on the right path."
The thought of playing in Tiger Stadium is something Trahan has always thought about and it made a lasting impression on his last visit to Death Valley.
"I haven't been to a game there in the past few years but the one I went to is one I will never forget," he said.
