Ducre's Top Two

Lakeshore (Mandeville, La.) 2015 RB/LB David Ducre secured three quick offers this spring and early summer, and the 6-0, 225-pounder released a top two this week...

Last month, David Ducre trekked to Starkville for Mississippi State camp and the Bulldogs, as a result, earned a spot on Ducre's leader board.

"The camp was three weeks ago," Ducre began. "It went pretty well. The feedback from the coaches was that I did fine; if there's one thing I need to work on, it's hip flexibility.

"I liked it a lot at Mississippi State. They have a beautiful campus that's really nice. I was invited back to their 'Big Dawg' camp later this summer."

RBs coach Greg Knox and the remainder of the MSU staff will be keeping tabs on Ducre, who holds offers from Southern Miss, Tulane and Alcorn State.

"Coach Knox wants to come watch me in a game," Dupre added. "If he's impressed, then the offer will be good. (Knox) is a really great coach who is a lot of fun and very motivational. I met Coach Mullen, too, which was good."

What's on Ducre's calendar for the remaining weeks of summer?

"I'm going to LSU's second camp, which is July 14-through-17," he said. "Coach Frank Wilson is a very good coach who taught me a lot of good things at last month's camp.

"He helped me with my spin move, pass release, running routes overall and just to always continue trying something else new; to never be satisfied nor get complacent."

Southern Miss will likely host Ducre for a day prior to the end of July.

Ducre began fielding preliminary info on another SEC program.

"I believe my coach got in contact with Tennessee," he said. "I've been getting stuff sent - about the school - from Tennessee...I think that's a good school."

LSU, which Ducre previously listed atop his board, remains No. 1 while Mississippi State took residence in the next slot.

Ducre's athleticism makes him an elite player.

He benches 345 pounds, squats 450, power cleans 250 and boasts a 565-pound dead lift, while clocking sub-4.5 times in the 40-yard dash.

"Put me as open to any school," he concluded. "LSU and Mississippi State are my favorites, but I'm open to any college."
