Rebs after New Orleans TE

David Rue (TE, Monroe, LA) - David has been offered a scholarship by the Rebel football team. He is "leaning heavily" toward the Rebs, but is also entertaining an offer from Clemson. Read about it inside.

David Rue, a 6-5 225-pound tight end from New Orleans, LA, likes what he sees in Ole Miss and is glad he's got an offer from the Rebel football program.

But he will "think things over for a little while" before making his final decision between the Rebs and Clemson, who has also offered him a full ride.

"I like Ole Miss. I went there last summer for the 7-on-7 camp. It's a nice place," said Rue, whose family was forced out of New Orleans last year when Hurricane Katrina hit.

He has been enrolled at Richwood High School in Monroe since.

According to his Father, Earl Robinson, David and his family will remain in Monroe for David's senior season.

David attended St. Augustine HS when his family lived in New Orleans.

Rue got to Richwood late but did get to play in four games as a junior. He caught 8 passes for 200 yards and a touchdown, he recalled.

"Hurricane Katrina messed everything up," he continued, "but we are making the most of it."

Rue, who is also being recruited by Auburn and LSU but has not been offered by them yet, runs a 4.67 40.

"I think my strength is that I have a good combination of size and athleticism," he said. "I will need to get stronger before I go to college, but that will come with work and time."

Rue will take his ACT for the first time on April 8th. He is currently throwing the discus and the javelin for Richwood in track, also a first for him.

"My goal for my senior year is to gain some good weight and try to play at 240," he closed. "If I can do that, I will be ready for college."

Hopefully, Ole Miss.
