LSU Prospects

 

Louisiana's top rated prospect Joe McKnight had one of his best rushing performances of the year as he ran for 122 yards and 1 TD on 4 carries during John Curtis 50-6 win over Donaldsonville. McKnight's scoring run was from 71 yards out and he now has 18 total touchdowns in 2006. The nation's 4th ranked back now has 609 yards and 9 TDs on 37 rushes to go with his 12 catches for 441 yards and 8 TDs. McKnight is averaging 21.4 yards every time he touches the ball on offense.

 

  The nation's No. 1 rated running back Noel Devine dazzled the crowd to the tune of 173 yards and 5 TDs in a 53-10 win. The 5-star back scored from 32, 75, 4, 10 and 76 yards out. He also added a 76-yard punt return touchdown for good measure. Devine now holds the record for career touchdowns in Lee County as he has 87 total scores.

 

Catholic of Pointe Coupee receiver Toddrick Bajoie has been plagued by an injury most of his senior season but against Opelousas Catholic he hauled in  23-yard TD pass and also threw a 34-yard touchdown strike on a gimmick play. CHPC won the contest 34-7 and finished a perfect 10-0 during the regular season.

 

  4-star signal caller Jarrett Lee showed some mobility in Brenham's 24-7 win against Willis. Lee ran 5 times for 69 yards with a pair of 32-yard TD runs. In the air, the 15th ranked QB completed 14-of-24 for 114 yards with no scores and no picks. For the year, Lee has completed 135-of-221 for 1,709 yards with 22 TDs and 4 INTs.

 

  4-star safety Christian Scott can play on either side of the ball at the next level and he showed why with a 52-yard TD reception in Dallas (Texas) Skyline's 17-16 loss to Carter. Scott finished with 102 yards receiving on the evening.

 

 

  Dez Bryant has been put on the back burner but he is someone the LSU coaches could call upon as other prospects fall off the board. The 17th ranked wide out was held in check in Lufkin's 50-0 victory over Magnolia as he caught only 2 passes for 34 yards but one of them did go for a 22-yard score. Bryant has totaled 48 catches for 889 yards and 5 TDs on the year.

 

  4-star wide out Ron Brooks had a hand in five touchdowns – rushing, passing and receiving – to help lead Irving (Texas) MacArthur to a 56-38 win over Grand Prairie. Two of Brooks' scores were of the long variety when he broke loose for a 73-yard TD run and later hauled in a 68-yard TD pass. Brooks has accounted for over 2,000 total yards of offense playing primarily at quarterback and has 28 total TDs.

 

  Texas A&M commit Shawnbrey McNeal rushed for 130 yards to help Dallas (Texas) Madison to an 11-7 win over Roosevelt. McNeal is someone the staff is keeping an eye on if things fall through with Joe McKnight and Noel Devine.

 

  Stevan Ridley had one of his most productive outings of the year but it wasn't enough as Natchez (Miss.) Trinity Episcopal dropped one to Porters Chapel 42-41. The LSU commit did his part by rushing for 390 yards and 4 TDs, and passing for 128 yards and 2 more TDs.

 

 

  Josh Jasper's 23-yard field goal proved to be the difference as Memphis (Tenn.) Ridgeway defeated Germantown 10-7 in the first round of the Class 5A playoffs

 

  3-star prospect Gilbert Moye passed for 158 yards and a score, and rushed for 59 yards and another score but Diboll (Texas) came up short in a 31-17 loss to Crockett High School. In five games, Moye has accounted for 991 yards of total offense and 17 scores. He has completed 32-of-56 through the air for 547 yards and 8 TDs, and has rushed for 444 yards and 8 TDs on 69 carries.

 

Captain Shreve linebacker Dusty Rust picked up his first scholarship offer as La. Tech has anteed up. Rust went out two days later and picked up 6 tackles in less than a half of action as his squad defeated Woodlawn 56-6.

 

 

St. Thomas More's standout safety Grant Fleming intercepted a pass and returned it 35 yards for a touchdown in the Cougars 28-6 win over Opelousas.

 

3-star safety Tarence Calais was too much for Franklin as he directed the Lumberjacks to a 48-8 victory. Calais  tossed a pair of touchdowns from 37 and 23 yards out and ran one in from 52.
