Louisiana Notebook

Five-star junior offensive tackle Cameron Robinson (West Monroe) has maintained a top two of LSU and Alabama throughout his recruitment. However, there's word that a trio of out-of-state programs are also legitimate contenders to land the nation's second-ranked 2014 prospect...

  • Cameron Robinson has legit interest in Florida, Florida State and Oregon, according to sources close to the massive five-star offensive tackle. Robinson visited both LSU and Alabama in recent weeks.

  • Edna Karr capped off a perfect season with a 29-22 victory over the Neville Tigers in the Class 4A final Friday night. Karr (14-0), which lost to Neville in last year's title game, got over the hump after finishing as runner-up the previous two seasons.

    Four-star junior Devante Noil completed 10-of-15 passes for 145 yards. "Speedy" also ran for a short TD. Karr senior Jeremy Jamison was his team's Most Outstanding Player after rushing for 129 yards and two scores. Jamison's 53-yard fourth-quarter scamper gave Karr the lead for good.

    Karr five-star defensive end Gerald Willis impressed observers. Neville QB John Diarse (LSU commit) rolled up 148 yards on the ground to accompany 151 through the air.

  • Loreauville 2013 WR Jermaine Antoine will take an official to TCU next month. Antoine told TCU recruiting expert Jeremiah Glenn that he'll commit if the Frogs offer.

  • Trevell Dixon (West Saint Mary) has a top four of Nebraska, Arizona State, Houston and TCU. Dixon is listed as a three-star safety although he's now being recruited solely for receiver. He'll visit Houston next week.

  • John Curtis Christian junior linebacker Kenny Young says he has no favorites. Young has an Ole Miss offer. He attended the Egg Bowl last month with senior teammate Duke Riley. LSU recruiting coordinator Frank Wilson has a great rapport with Young, who is related to Tigers RB Alfred Blue.

  • Les Miles and LSU secondary coach Corey Raymond were in Raymond's home-town of New Iberia to see Catholic-NI QB Joe Lissard. After viewing Lissard's film, Miles asked the senior to take an official visit to Baton Rouge. Lissard has offers from McNeese State and Central Arkansas but could blow up between now and National Signing Day.

  • It's guaranteed that Miles and Raymond will return to Catholic over the next couple of years to recruit Lissard's successor: 2015 QB Jason Pellerin. At 6-foot-3 and 195-pounds, Pellerin was a nice target at receiver for Lissard. Former Catholic head coach Keith Menard expects Pellerin (pictured below) to pull "20 offers before it's all said and done."

  • Four-star Kendell Beckwith (East Feliciana) informed TigerSportsDigest.com recruiting analysts Austin Cooper and Hunter Paniagua that he'll take officials to LSU, Alabama and Florida State. Beckwith is visiting the Crimson Tide this weekend.

  • 2017 Eastbay All-American Dylan Moses (University Lab) expects to camp at both LSU and Alabama during the summer. Moses (6-1, 210, 4.4) earned an LSU offer at the Tigers' July camp.

  • McKinley defensive tackle Donovan McCray picked up his fifth offer from Texas Southern. McCray is an intense competitor who could be an FCS steal.

  • Southern Lab QB Deonte Shorts added offers from Southeastern Louisiana and Texas Southern to accompany his Southern offer. Shorts looks the part at 6-foot-2 and 185-to-190 lbs. He has tremendous athletic ability and is a leader.
