Mustangs visit Robichaux

Kingwood Park linebacker Ragan Robichaux has picked up his first offer. Who is it from? Plus, what is the latest on his recruiting with SMU? Come inside for the latest!

The SMU coaches have hit the road the past week, scouting players they have offered and potential offerees.

On Saturday night, Kingwood Park high school linebacker Ragan Robichaux informed PonyStampede.com that the SMU coaching staff visited his practice on Friday.

"Yesterday Coach Suan stopped by and stayed our whole athletic period and watched me, my coach said he was impressed," said the junior. "I probably going to try to call him (in the next couple of days)."

At 6'1, 182 pounds, Robichaux recorded 47 tackles as a defensive end in 2009. While SMU might be waiting to see him at camp, one school felt it was time to come to the table. Offering the linebacker/safety on Saturday afternoon.

"I picked up my first offer from UTSA," said Robichaux. "I was really excited, I think they're doing the right things to start a winning program from scratch and it wouldn't be my first time to start a program."

The defensive star headed to San Antonio for the Roadrunners junior day.

"Coach Coker was saying he really liked the way I play. Especially my speed and he would see me starting at rover/strong safety right when I got there," said Robichaux. "It was a pretty cool statement coming from the head coach. It looks like I would get a lot of playing time as soon as I got there which most people don't have that opportunity. Coach won a national championship as the head coach of Miami in 01'. It was kind of hard not to be impressed, especially seeing that ring on his finger."

The 2011 prospect has visited SMU multiple times and is also hearing from Arizona, Rice, Baylor, Houston, Texas A&M, and Vanderbilt.
