Roundup on LSU Recruits

Here is a look at how some of the top guys on LSU's recruiting board fared over the weekend. We will also take a look at some other Louisiana prospects for 2007, in addition to looking ahead to 2008 and 2009.

LSU Prospects

LSU commit Jarrett Lee and his Brenham (Texas) squad dropped to 2-1 on the season with a 21-17 loss to Lamar. The 4-star QB completed 28-of-41 passes for 227 yards and 2 TDs. For the season, Lee has completed 54-of-90 for 704 yards with 11 TDs and 2 INTs.

 

Pearland (Texas) athlete Sam Proctor had 6 carries for 79 yards which included a 65-yard

TD scamper in the 24-17 win over Memorial. Proctor, who is being recruited as a safety, leads the team in rushing with 48 carries for 382 yards and 8 TDs. He also has one catch for 12 yards and has completed 6-of-11 passes for 56 yards and 1 INT.

 

5-star wide receiver prospect Ron Brooks has a big night playing quarterback for Irving (Texas) MacArthur in a 49-30 victory. He accounted for 322 total yards of offense and also had a part in 6 TDs. Brooks had a game-high 169 yards and four scores with one of his TD runs covering 64 yards and another for 74.

 

4-star safety Christian Scott saw his first action of the year due to a sprained ankle and he responded with a 1-yard TD run on offense. Defensively, Scott got beat on a 72-yard scoring pass but on the next drive he recovered a fumble that led to a field goal to lift Dallas (Texas) Skyline to a 24-21 victory.

 

Tiger commitment Stevan Ridley had another super performance in leading Natchez (Miss.) Trinity Episcopal to a 45-0 shutout win of Tensas. The 3-star running back plays quarterback for the Chiefs and he flashed his running skills to the tune of 379 yards and 4 TDs on only 17 carries. His scoring runs covered 71, 22, 94 and 52 yards.

 

5-star running back Joe McKnight didn't get many touches on the night in John Curtis' 35-7 win over Salmen but he made the most of them. McKnight carried the ball 2 times for 68 yards and 2 TDs that covered 29 and 39 yards. He also caught a pass for 21 yards.

 

LSU commitment Delvin Breaux was reportedly carted off the field with what has been reported as a possible knee injury but I could not get any confirmation as of late Sunday night. We will get some information early this week as to the severity of the injury.

 

5-star safety Stefoin Francois had a huge night for East St. John as he recorded 5 quarterback sacks in the Wildcats' win over New Orleans-St. Augustine.

 

For the first time this season, Breaux Bridge's all-purpose threat John Williams was held in check. The Tigers grinded out a 14-7 win over Cecilia and Williams had a 1-yard touchdown plunge. On the season, though, Williams has been very impressive with 26 carries for 306 yards and 4 TDs to go with his 19 yards through the air on 5-of-10 passing. Williams is also the team's leading receiver with 5 catches for 86 yards and a score.

 

Lynn Haven (Fla.) Mosley running back Enrique Davis led his team in rushing in a 47-27 victory. Scout.com's 20th rated back in the country carried the ball only 9 times but he finished with 130 yards and 2 TDs.

 

The nation's top rated running back, Noel Devine, lit it up in a big 69-0 romp. He rushed for 240 yards and 4 touchdowns on only 10 attempts. For the season, Devine has 632 yards and 10 TDs with only 37 carries. He is averaging 17 yards a pop and 210 yards a game through three games.

 

LSU commitment DeAngelo Benton had only 1 catch in Bastrop's 49-12 win over Richwood but it went for a 19-yard touchdown.

 

Free safety Reggie Weams of Baton Rouge-Redemptorist picked off a pass and returned it 39 yards for a score in helping the Wolves topple Leesville 26-9.

 

4-star lineman Will Blackwell got the scoring started by intercepting a pass and returning it 20 yards for a touchdown to help lead West Monroe to a 39-12 win over St. Amant.

 

Lafayette-St. Thomas More safety Grant Fleming showed a lot of grit in the Cougars' 29-28 setback to Acadiana. Fleming limped around most of the game and he was able to put the pain to the side when he returned a kickoff 95 yards for a touchdown.

 

Slidell linebacker/fullback Cedric Cooper logged 4 quarterback sacks and scored on a 7-yard run to help lead the Tigers to a 22-14 win over Brother Martin.

 

Other Louisiana Prospects for 2007

Jasmine Dalton caught a pair of touchdowns passes for Independence in a 49-12 win over Varnado. Dalton's TD grabs were for 8 yards and then he took one in from 44 yards.

 

Baton Rouge-Capitol's cornerback Dave Clark picked off two passes and had a third interception that he returned for a touchdown called back on a penalty in a 28-12 win against Belaire. His teammate and good friend, Andrew Scott, had 6 catches for 72 yards including an 18-yard TD grab.

 

East St. John rolled to a 45-0 win over New Orleans-St. Augustine. Johnnie Thiel passed for 138 yards and tossed a touchdown while Johnny Owen carried the ball 14 times for 80 yards and 2 TDs. Radi Jabouri also showed why he is the top kicker in the state by nailing a 53-yard field goal.

 

Florida State commitment Ahmad Paige had another tough outing but his Sterlington squad was victorious in a 27-0 win over West Ouachita. Paige had 2 grabs for 19 yards but did tote the ball 3 times for another 33 yards. On the year, Paige has 5 catches for 63 yards and 1 touchdown.

 

LSU baseball commitment Ben Alsup led Ruston to a 38-6 win over Franklin Parish. Alsup, who will pitch for the Tigers, completed 12-of-19 passes for 238 yards, 1 TD and 1 INT.
