Pierre Is Flying Under-The-Radar

2017 Blinn OL Junior Pierre (6-5, 315) is a player that is currently flying under-the-radar, but plenty of FCS programs are after him and he updated JCFootball.com on where things stand on the recruiting front...


"Right now, I have offers from several FCS schools -- Southeast Missouri, Southeast Louisiana, Grambling and Murray State -- and basically they are the only ones that are talking to me right now," Pierre told JCFootball.com. "I'm planning on taking visits to see Southeastern Louisiana and Southeast Missouri, but I haven't firmed up those dates yet."

With his size and athleticism, Pierre can play almost anywhere along the line of scrimmage, but this season he's been mainly at right guard.

"I'm pretty much a 50/50 guy," Pierre said when asked about what he excels in. "I feel like I am strong as a pass-blocker because of my feet, but as a run-blocker, I am good because of my strength and also my high school was a 'run heavy' program there, so I learned how to run-block pretty early on.

"One thing I have really improved on his ready moves. If a guy is going to bull rush me and then do a spin, I can read how he sets up and what he wants to do and then I can counter it."

As a prep, Pierre didn't play football until his senior year, so a lot of schools didn't know much about him and then he blew out the ACL in his right knee.

"After that, I knew I needed to go to a JC, so I actually signed with New Mexico Military, but I wasn't happy there," Pierre said. "I redshirted there (in 2015), so this year (at Blinn) was really my first full season of football."

Pierre is on pace to finish up his two-year degree in December and he will have three years to play three starting in 2017.
