Itawamba DL Hauls In His Second Offer

Itawamba DL Desi Bigby (6-3, 320) grabbed his second offer this past week and he's getting looks from several other schools as well...

"I just received an offer from Louisiana-Lafayette," Bigby told recently. "I already had an offer from Temple, so that's two now and more schools are talking to me, but they haven't offered yet.

"(ULL) loved my film and they said they wanted to get me there to play immediately."

In addition to his two offers, the other schools contacting Bigby this summer include Mississippi State, Ole Miss, Georgia, Alabama, Arkansas, Auburn, Tennessee and Florida.

After a solid prep career in Atlanta, Georgia, Bigby wound up signing with Highland in Kansas where he played sparingly as a freshman, but shortly after spring quarter, he decided to make the move to Itawamba.

"I made the decision to move closer to home and Itawamba plays really good football and I liked the staff and the program here," Bigby noted.

With his size and run-plugging abilities, Bigby looks like an ideal fit as a nose tackle or one-tech, depending on the defensive scheme and he feels he's at his best when taking on blockers.

"I hold up good against the run," Bigby said. "I hold my ground, I don't stay blocked and I can rush the quarterback a little too."

Bigby is on pace to finish up his two-year degree in May and he will have three years to play two following the 2015 football season.
