Munchie Legaux Names Leader

Last Wednesday proved to be quite memorable for New Orleans, (La) Edna Karr QB Munchie Legaux. The dual threat signal caller saw Louisiana Tech join Tulane in extending an in-state offer. Shortly thereafter things got even more exciting when he heard that the University of Michigan was ready to take the plunge as well.

"I've been calling the coach lately," Legaux said regarding his Michigan recruiter, assistant Fred Jackson.  "When I finally got in touch with him, they offered me a full scholarship.  They said they wanted to see a little bit more film and going to send my paper in the mail."

Legaux has gained a rapid rapport with Jackson based in large part on their common backgrounds.

"He's actually from New Orleans," Legaux reported.  "It's been good.  Munchie Legaux:  "Yeah, he said he be down here in April."

At 6-4, 186-pounds, and boasting a 4.6 forty, Legaux is appears to be the prototypical dual threat quarterback.  His stats on the football field last season seem to bare that description out.

"I did good," Legaux said reflecting on his junior campaign.  "1700 yards and 35 touchdowns.  10 were running and 25 were passing."

That ability to make plays on the ground and through the air made seeking out a program that will allow him to utilize both of those skills of paramount importance.  That, though, only partially explains why this self-described Pat White play-alike became interested in Michigan.

"It's just the history," Legaux said regarding Michigan.  "It's one of the winningest schools in college."

That blend of history and style could lure Legaux to Ann Arbor, but not before he deals with the distance issue brought up by his mother.  She has expressed her desire to see her offspring stay close home.  Despite that, her son insists proximity won't be a factor and has a remedy for situation if he decides to capitalize on a far-away option.

"She is just going to have to fly up to all the games," he said laughingly.

That's a course of action the Legaux's will have to look into more deeply if the team currently sitting atop his list maintains its position.

"Michigan in the lead right now," he said matter-of-factly.

That standing will put to the test in the coming months as Legaux fields offers from new suitors.  LSU, Alabama and Kansas State are reportedly showing strong interest at this point, and the Tigers hold the distinction of being his childhood favorite.  Should they extend a scholarship offer, will a quick decision be close behind.

"No," said Legaux.  "I am going to keep my interests open."

Later in the summer he plans to trim his list considerably before making a decision.  When asked for a specific timeframe for a decision, he replied, "as soon as the season starts."
