Tiger Rag Recruiting Feature

New Roads-Catholic of Pointe Coupee's Toddrick Bajoie is one of the state's top wide outs and he is finally starting to get the recognition he deserves from college coaches. As a junior, Bajoie hauled in 36 passes for over 1,200 yards and 11 touchdowns for the Hornets and was a first team all-state selection. He averaged over 30 yards a catch and finished with over 1,500 all-purpose yards.

New Roads-Catholic of Pointe Coupee's Toddrick Bajoie is one of the state's top wide outs and he is finally starting to get the recognition he deserves from college coaches.

As a junior, Bajoie hauled in 36 passes for over 1,200 yards and 11 touchdowns for the Hornets and was a first team all-state selection. He averaged over 30 yards a catch and finished with over 1,500 all-purpose yards.

"Nebraska, Ole Miss and Oklahoma have offered," Bajoie told Tiger Rag. "A bunch of schools are recruiting me pretty hard and talking about offering like LSU, Miami, FSU, Virginia Tech and Florida."

LSU offensive coordinator Jimbo Fisher is the primary coach recruiting Bajoie (6-2, 200, 4.45) for the Tigers and a couple of weeks ago he and head coach Les Miles spoke at length with the standout receiver about some things he needs to do to get an offer.

"They were checking on my grades and talking to me about devoting myself to my academics," explained Bajoie.

Bajoie said he is taking their advice to heart and this summer he plans on taking the necessary steps needed to get his grades in check.

"I'm going to summer school to take a class and I'm also taking a correspondence course so I don't have to scramble next year," said Bajoie, who claims to have a 2.3 GPA in his core classes and will take the ACT for the first time on June 10.

Academics were not the only thing Fisher and Miles talked about as they also let him know what they like about him as a wide out.

"They said they love my size and that I'm a physical receiver," said Bajoie. "They said I can go up and get the ball, and I can also take a five-yard pass and turn it into something big. They compared me to Michael Clayton."

In a less than a week, Bajoie plans to attend LSU's 7-on-7 passing camp and that may be all the coaches need to see to extend an offer.

"They said they want to get me to camp and work me out a lot to see some things," Bajoie said. "They said if I do good then I'll get an offer."

If he does get that offer would it be tough to refrain from pulling the trigger?

"I'd want to (commit) but I may want to wait," he said. "I'd probably go ahead and do it though because LSU is my No. 1 school followed by Miami, Florida and FSU."
