Visiting again today

Versatile Archbishop Shaw standout Lawrence Breaud dropped by the SMU campus on Friday afternoon for an impromptu visit. What kind of vibe is Breaud getting from the SMU staff? Read on to get the details.

Archbishop Shaw RB/WR Lawrence Breaud dropped by SMU's campus Friday for an impromptu visit and he plans to return on Monday as well.

"I'm feeling it (at SMU)," said Breaud, who rushed for more than 1,300 yards in 2009, despite sharing carries with a senior. "My family wants me to come here to school because I have relatives in the area.

"Coach (Jeff) Reinebold showed me around the campus and we watched my highlight tape. He liked my film. He liked it a whole lot. I'm getting a 'schollie' to SMU. They plan on trying me at slot, but I also hear that the running backs are young and so I might get some looks there. I'll play running back, slot receiver, whatever it takes."

Breaud, who is a star point guard on the hardwood, is in Dallas for an AAU tournament.

"I'm coming back to SMU on Monday to meet the rest of the coaches," he said, "and so I can meet more players."

Breaud doesn't have any offers yet, but he's hearing from several schools, including Utah, Memphis, Southern Miss, Miami (Ohio), and Arizona State. He says that SMU and Utah are showing the most interest.

Last year, Breaud ran for 148 yards with a TD vs. John Ehret and 147 yards with three TDs (and two receptions for 33 yards) vs. Jesuit. This fall, he'll see action at both quarterback and running back. Shaw head coach, Scott Bairnsfather, said in the spring that Breaud will get more touches this season than any player in school history.
