Ducre holds three

Mandeville (La.) Lakeshore 2015 RB/LB David Ducre discusses his first three offers, in addition to this week's LSU camp, inside with FOXSportsNEXT.com.

David Ducre hauled in three offers recently.

"Tulane offered today around 3 P.M.," he said. "I already had Southern Miss and Alcorn State. Southern Miss was two weeks ago and Alcorn State was Monday.

"Coach David Johnson from Tulane texted my coach, who (in turn) texted my dad, and then Coach Johnson and my dad talked. Coach Johnson said they wanted to offer."

Ducre, who will camp with Mississippi State next, put on a clinic this week at LSU.

"It was a good experience," he said. "I got a lot of help with the teaching from the coaches. I felt like I showed a good burst at running back; I'm beating (linebackers) off the ball better now and catching the ball better.

"The coaches were impressed. I told them I play both ways, although I didn't do it much last year...I'm looking into it more for this upcoming season."

LSU RBs coach Frank Wilson had some pointers for Ducre.

"He said for me to relax more," the 6-0, 225-pounder said, "and for me to play my game and do my thing. He liked my footwork and the speed I have for my size.

"LSU is my favorite school. Some of the coaches told me I look like a linebacker instead of a running back. I'm really looking to play either way. I'd prefer to play running back because I've been playing that position longer, but I'll be happy playing linebacker."

Ducre had a 40-yard reception and two carries for lengthy yardage in Lakeshore's 35-14 victory in the spring game vs. Walker.
