New Orleans LB/S has Nebraska offer!

He's a wait...he's a linebacker. Well, so he could play both positions in college given his height, size and speed. Just get him on the field is what Patrick says.

Patrick Trahan is down a few pounds to 205 from 210 where he normally is at during the season. He's also 6-foot-2 and runs a 4.6/40. So there is the problem. Is he a safety or is he a linebacker? He's being recruited for both actually.

"I haven't really counted my offers lately," Trahan said. "I have an offer from LSU, Auburn, West Virginia, Nebraska, UCF, and Indiana. So six or so."

While UCF and Auburn see a vicious hitting safety all of the other offers have come for Trahan as a linebacker. "It really doesn't matter. I just want to play."

The fact of the matter is Trahan may not be playing linebacker or safety this fall for New Orleans (La.) St. Augustine this fall. "I might be playing defensive end."

"I played safety and linebacker last year. They might still play me at linebacker. If we have a weak spot in our defense the coaches just put me there."

You would understand Trahan's claimed strength then. He really developed it by having been plugged into different positions. "My knowledge of the game. I'd also say my size. I pretty much know every position on the field. I know what I have to do."

You can get that impression by just looking at the defensive stats that Trahan had last year. Last year Trahan made 66 tackles with 16 sacks while adding 20 tackles for a loss and nine forced fumbles.

So far Trahan has been on unofficial visits which included spring games to Auburn, LSU and Ole Miss. He also attended a camp at LSU and will be attending a 7 on 7 camp at Auburn later. That may conclude Trahan's plans for this summer.

There are really two that are standing out to Trahan currently; LSU and Auburn. "It's a big thing to play college football. My family are helping me to pick a school. I am looking at consistency, a top program and the graduation rate of the players."

The biggest thing for Nebraska to overcome is not distance for Trahan. Instead it is Trahan's unfamiliarity with Nebraska. "I know that they are a good program. I don't know too much about them though."

Despite not knowing too much about Nebraska currently he is still considering Nebraska for an official visit this fall.

Trahan ran the 100 meters in track last spring and recorded a best time of 10.9.
