Levander Liggins, the multi-purpose three-star SMU prospect from Leesville High School, has added a new scholarship offer.

"Memphis offered me several days ago," said Liggins, who can play a variety of positions, including quarterback, wide receiver, and running back. "I'm planning on taking an official to Miami (Ohio) in September.

"I have family - on my dad's side - in Ohio. They're a rebuilding program that is looking to make some changes, and they're looking for some young players who will get early playing time. I have a good relationship with their recruiters, one of which is originally from Leesville."

Six schools have offered Liggins, including SMU, Louisiana Tech, Louisiana-Monroe, and Tulane.

"I don't really have any favorites yet," he said. "I'm pretty open. I'm going to take most of my official visits, if not all of them. At first, I was looking to go out of state for college, but now I'm undecided. I plan on taking unofficial visits to in-state schools and official vists to out-of-state schools.

"I've done some background work on SMU, looking into their program. They're a pretty good team. I'm already familiar with Louisiana Tech, and I've kept in contact with Coach (Tommy) Spangler."

For now, however, Liggins' only concern is the fast-approaching season.

"We have a scrimmage this week against Captain Shreve and then we get LaGrange in the jamboree," he said. "The first week of the regular season, we have West Monroe. We've been talking about that (West Monroe) game, and they're the number one target for us. We just have to focus on what's ahead."

Last year, Liggins rushed for 584 yards on 88 carries (6.6 yards per carry) with 10 TDs and caught 32 passes for 550 yards (17.2 yards per catch) with six TDs. In the spring game vs. Pineville, he accounted for almost 270 total yards (with four TDs).
