QB Hunter Herring
Lee’s Scouting Report: “Hunter Herring has become a really good quarterback for the Ouachita Christian program, but he is so athletic that he could be a starting punter, tight end, quarterback, or even could grow into a linebacker at the college level. When you are 6-4, 205 pounds and run a 4.55/40, you can grow into a lot of positions. Hunter is a big time sleeper for college. He is also the team’s starting punter with great hang time. Also, before Hunter started at quarterback, he also started as a wide receiver/tight end for the team back in 2018.”
Bio: There was nobody that dominated Class 1A as much as Ouachita Christian quarterback Hunter Herring did last season. While leading the Eagles to the Division IV state championship, he was named both the Class 1A Offensive MVP and the Division IV state championship game’s most outstanding player. Along the way, he made plays using both his arm and his legs by throwing for 1,794 yards and 27 touchdowns while rushing for 1,123 rushing yards and 25 touchdowns. Altogether, Herring accounted for 2,913 total yards and 52 total touchdowns. After a couple of days receiving his first DI football offer, Herring has committed to the UL Ragin’ Cajuns.
“It was an easy decision with UL because of what they have going down in Lafayette. It felt like home since the time I visited,” Herring said. “Coach Napier is evolving guys better than a lot of Power Five schools, and I wanted to be a part of that.”
QB Judd Barton
Lee’s Scouting Report: “Judd Barton is very underrated and thrives in an offense tailor made for passing the ball. He is well coached by his head coach Thomas Bachman and the rest of the offensive staff at ASH. This is the type of kid that is perfect for I-AA football that has a good offensive line and playmakers in a pass happy offense.”
Bio: A lot of attention was being given to the defensive side of the football for the Alexandria Trojans, but it was quarterback Judd Barton and the offense that did plenty of enough for the team to win an impressive ten games including a playoff appearance. Barton is trying to build on his success last season after throwing for over 1,000 yards and 13 touchdowns. As of now, he has received one offer from Nicholls State. When not being a leader on the field, Barton is being a leader in his school’s community by actively participating in the school’s student council.
QB Keith Baker
Lee’s Scouting Report: “This kid is like watching the college version of Kyler Murray (Texas A&M/Oklahoma/Arizona Cardinals), but just a little shorter and a little bigger in size. This kid finds a way to get out of trouble better than any quarterback I’ve seen in many years. Keith Baker is very unique in that sense. When pressured, he can make throws and plays that are just incredible when finding the open wide receivers. He doesn’t get rattled, is tough to tackle, and has a cannon arm. If the big schools don’t offer, he will fall to some I-AA or D2 schools that will get a super star at quarterback. Keith is one of the best short quarterbacks I have ever seen play in high school football. 2020 will be his fourth year to start for Green Oaks High School.”
Bio: The Green Oaks Giants were one of the best passing offenses in the state with some of the best receivers in the state, but it is the trigger man Keith Baker that makes everything go. It has been proven over and over again that short quarterbacks can thrive as much as taller quarterbacks and Baker has shown that by throwing for 2,785 yards and 23 touchdowns in 2019. So far, he has received offers from De Anza College, Millsaps College, Carthage College, and Graceland College, but he is looking for even more. When not playing football, Baker enjoys his time off by playing video games.
QB Blake McGehee
Lee’s Scouting Report: “This kid will be a four year starter in 2020. He has a cannon arm and is a big time player that competes on every play.”
Bio: When it is all said and done, Blake McGehee will go down as one of the most productive quarterbacks to go through Tioga. Last season, he threw for 2,929 yards and 31 touchdowns. With still another year left to play, he has already thrown for 7,658 yards and 83 touchdowns in his high school career. Despite his success on the gridiron, McGehee will trade in his helmet and shoulder pads for a baseball bat in college as he is committed to play baseball at Ole Miss.
“I just like the campus all around,” McGehee said. “With the facilities, the coaching staff, and the campus itself, it just felt right at home to play at Ole Miss.”
When not playing either sport, he enjoys snowboarding, traveling, and wakeboarding.
QB Zach Shaw
Lee’s Scouting Report: “This kid looks the part and has a cannon arm. I am puzzled why he’s not getting bigger offers. He has great feet, a great arm and all of his physical skill sets show up on film. Not only is he a talented quarterback, but he is also one of the state’s best punters.”
Bio: Zach Shaw’s physical skill set has intrigued DI programs such as the ULM Warhawks, which is where he is currently committed to play college football next season.
“I love the coaches and it’s in my hometown,” Shaw said. “I have always grown up around the program so I want to be a part of it.”
Last season, the Ouachita Parish quarterback threw for 1,280 yards and 14 touchdowns completing 52% of his passes in a run heavy offense. Along with being a DI quarterback recruit, Shaw is also a talented baseball player as well.
QB Alex Garcia
Lee’s Scouting Report: “I went to an Airline practice in 2018 and saw this kid named Alex Garcia taking snaps. Then, he was 6-2, 180 pounds and looked the part. 2019 was his first year to start, and he did a super job while also showing moxy as well as leadership. Alex has the arm, size, and the high football I.Q. to develop into a really good quarterback in college. He will have so much more to show in 2020.”
Bio: What a first impression it was for Alex Garcia as he earned All-City and All-State honors by throwing for 2,735 yards and 30 touchdowns while also leading the Vikings to ten victories along with a Class 5A Quarterfinal finish. Despite the success of his first season, Garcia has only received one offer from the University of Mary Hardin-Baylor. In the weight room, Garcia has a max bench press of 250 pounds, a max squat of 300 pounds, and can run a 4.6/40. Soccer was also Garcia’s first love until he decided to quit in order to focus more on football.
QB Trent McLaughlin
Lee’s Scouting Report: “Trent McLaughlin has big time talent. He just needs to put it all together improving his short game passing and mental approach when being rushed in the pocket. He has the size, cannon arm, and physical skills to become a great player. He is also a really good baseball player too for Minden High School. I think Trent could become a big time DI QB.”
Bio: Trent McLaughlin returns as not only one of the top quarterbacks in North Louisiana, but also returns as one of the area’s biggest baseball prospects as well. Last season, he threw for 1,539 yards and 15 touchdowns while leading the Crimson Tide to seven wins. McLaughlin has not received any offers yet, but he does like LSU and Louisiana Tech as some of his top choices.
“I am looking for a great competitive environment with good learning opportunities,” McLaughlin said.
When not playing football or baseball, the Minden High School two sport athlete enjoys fishing, hunting, and being around with his family.
ATH Anthony Jones Jr.
Booker T. Washington
Lee’s Scouting Report: “Anthony Jones Jr. plays quarterback for the team and had a really good season in 2019 both passing and running the ball. Anthony could play either quarterback, wide receiver, free safety, or even cornerback in college. He has the speed and toughness to be either a cornerback or safety along with the speed and hands to be a really good wide receiver or quarterback in college. If there is a balanced offense geared toward a dual threat quarterback at the I-AA level, then Jones would be a great option or he could be a DI player at another position.”
Bio: Whether it has been at quarterback or at wide receiver, Anthony Jones Jr. has always been a dynamic playmaker for Booker T. Washington. Despite missing three games due to a torn achilles, Jones managed to still throw for 1,398 yards as the starting quarterback. Growing up, he had always liked watching Texas A&M and TCU play. When not playing football, Jones can be seen playing basketball.
ATH Kentavious Jefferson
Booker T. Washington
Lee’s Scouting Report: “Kentavious Jefferson did not play a full season as he missed some games with injury, but he does it all for the team at wide receiver, defensive back, and kick returner with 4.58/40 speed. “
Bio: Kentavious Jefferson was an impact player for the Booker T. Washington Lions with 700 receiving yards, 1,000 all-purpose yards, 12 receiving touchdowns, and one kickoff return for a touchdown. His top schools are Louisiana Tech, TCU, and Alabama.
“I’m looking for a college that will believe in me enough to give me a shot in becoming a better athlete and teammate,” Jefferson said. “I also want to be on a family oriented team that loves to win.”
Jefferson is also a multiple athlete as he is on the baseball and track teams. In the weight room, the Booker T. Washington senior receiver can squat 505 pounds.
ATH Antonio Hollins
Lee’s Scouting Report: “Antonio Hollins is the best athlete on the team with 4.45/40 speed. Antonio will be a four year starter in 2020 and his highlight tape over that time period would take over 15 minutes to watch. He is a big time playmaker that can play slot wide receiver, cornerback, or be a special teams returner in college.”
Bio: Not only Antonio Hollins shows impressive football speed, but he also has some power as well as he can squat over 400 pounds. The versatile Carroll playmaker wants an opportunity to show his skills at the next level, and would love to play for schools like Grambling, ULM, and Arkansas Pine Bluff.
ATH TJ Hickman
Lee’s Scouting Report: “TJ Hickman is a big time playmaker as he scored at four different positions in 2019.”
Bio: No matter where TJ Hickman was at for the Lakeview Gators, he was a threat to score at any point of the football field. Last season, Hickman was one of the best return specialists in the state as he had four punt returns for touchdowns and a kickoff return for a touchdown. The dynamic playmaker also had five receiving touchdowns and returned an interception for a touchdown as a defensive back Hickman’s playmaking ability is getting noticed by colleges as he is being offered by Lamar, Northwestern State, and Sam Houston State already.
ATH Joseph Wilson
Lee’s Scouting Report: “For Joseph Wilson, 2019 was overshadowed by fellow defensive back Eric Reed, who signed with Auburn and other defensive backs that graduated. Joseph showed me that he is also big time in coverage and has 4.45/40 speed. I love this kid’s game as he is more gifted than most and faster than most with a tough demeanor. I think he can become a great nickel cornerback at the DI level. He reminds me of Kary Vincent (LSU) in terms of his size and speed.”
Bio: Joseph Wilson was one of many DI prospects on a talented Calvary Baptist Cavaliers team in 2019. However, he is one of the few standouts returning for the 2020 season. Despite flying under the radar with his fellow seniors, Wilson made a lot of plays as a junior in 2019. As a runner, he had 28 carries for 151 yards and two touchdowns while averaging 5.4 yards per carry. As a receiver, he had 26 receptions for 575 yards averaging 22 yards per catch and seven touchdowns. As a return specialist, he had 2 kickoff returns for 40 yards. Overall, Wilson had over 766 all-purpose yards. When not playing football, Wilson can be seen playing soccer or even powerlifting. On September 12th, the dynamic Cavalier athlete has decided to commit to play at Air Force.
ATH Brian Stewart Jr.
Lee’s Scouting Report: “Brian Stewart Jr. is one of the most gifted players you will see in space. If he gets the ball, hold your breath if you are a defensive back or a linebacker because it’s going to be tough to find and tackle him in space. Brian has the jets too as he has 4.4/40 speed. He can become a slot receiver or a kick return specialist at the DI level. I saw this kid play two different times, and I just love his ability and speed.”
Bio: No matter the position, Brian Stewart Jr. is a threat to score at any time on the football field. Last season, the versatile Woodlawn athlete had 32 catches for 459 yards and five touchdowns as a receiver, 32 carries for 142 yards as a runner, 147 passing yards and a touchdown as a passer, an interception returned for a touchdown as a defensive back, and two kickoff returns for touchdowns as a kick returner. Stewart has received two offers from Carthage College in Wisconsin and Louisiana College. Although Stewart has not received big DI offers, he just wants an opportunity to showcase his skills.
“First of all, most athletes want the DI scholarships from schools in the SEC, ACC, and Big 12, but I want to go somewhere where I’ll get the opportunity to play right away or have a chance to fight for a starting spot,” Stewart said “Distance from home really isn’t a factor, but I would love to receive an academic scholarship along with an athletic scholarship from a big school. Lastly, I just want to feel welcomed by the coaching staff and team.”
He is also a three sport athlete playing basketball, baseball, and track. The best sport of the three is basketball as he was the team’s starting point guard leading the Knights to the state championship while averaging nine assists per game. When he does not have a ball in his hand, he enjoys his free time listening to music.
ATH Jamarcia Smith
Lee’s Scouting Report: “Please don’t be fooled by his small stature. In the open field, Jamarcia Smith breaks a lot of ankles for teams trying to tackle him. Jamarcia is super quick on the outside with the ball in his hands. When he is running sideways, he is a 4.5/40 runner, but when he is running straight ahead, he is even faster. He is a Special Teams weapon at the I-AA level and is a big time steal for that level. I saw this kid play and he can definitely run.”
Bio: Jamarcia Smith is living proof that big things come in small packages as he is a threat to score everytime he is on the football field. Last season, Smith had 29 catches for 391 yards. Not only does Smith use his incredible 4.5/40 speed on the football field, but he also uses it running track where he actually advanced to state. Right now, the Green Oaks playmaker has received no offers, but he likes Clemson, Oregon, TCU, SMU, and Houston as some of his favorite schools.
“I’m looking to play football in college and I’m majoring in engineering,” Smith said.
When not playing football, he enjoys spending his free time drawing.
ATH Trent Ginn
Lee’s Scouting Report: “Trent Ginn started varsity as a freshman quarterback for Union Parish High School and was a heck of a player there for three years. Now, he moves to his more natural position at running back. Trent changed schools so he can follow his dad to Riverfield Academy, which is where he was hired as an assistant coach. This kid has incredible quickness and toughness for a small player. He also doesn’t shy away from contact and plays like he’s 210 pounds. Not to mention, he runs a legit 4.5/40.”
Bio: The Union Parish High School transfer Trent Ginn makes the Riverfield Academy Raiders an instant favorite to compete a MAIS championship. Ginn’s athleticism, toughness, and versatility allowed Ginn to have an outstanding career at Union Parish despite the fact that he is only 5-6, 170 pounds. Despite his stature, Ginn has put up big numbers in the weight room benching 325 pounds, cleaning 325 pounds, and squatting 500 pounds. In his freshman year at Union Parish, he played multiple positions including quarterback, wide receiver, and running back. As a sophomore, he was the team’s starting quarterback throwing for 25 touchdowns and last season, he accounted for 2,200 yards leading the Farmers all the way to the Class 3A semifinals. His top schools are Air Force and Arkansas Monticello. He is also a three sport athlete playing both baseball and basketball.
ATH Dylan Harris
Lee’s Scouting Report: “2019 was Dylan Harris’ first year to start, but this kid runs like a deer and has an incredible frame to add in weight. He could become a tight end at a lean 240 or 250 pounds, could also stay at 205 or 210 pounds in order to be a wide receiver or he could move to defensive end. There is so much upside for him in college. The program doesn’t throw the ball much, but the kid can be the main receiver as he runs a legit 4.55/40, has length, and he’s a tough kid on top of that. I think he would be a huge steal for a smaller DI school. If you saw Union Parish play like I did and if you have an eye for talent, he’s not hard to find.”
Bio: Dylan Harris was a two way starter for the Union Parish Farmers in 2019 as he had 16 receptions for 200 yards and three touchdowns offensively along with posting three interceptions on defense. Because of his frame and athleticism, it hasn’t taken long for colleges to notice him as Grambling has already offered. Harris also likes Southern, UL, Alabama A&M, and Arkansas State.
“I look for a school that I can excel on the field and in the classroom as well,” Harris said.
Not surprisingly because of his height, Harris also plays AAU basketball for the Joe Johnson Hawks.
ATH Andrew Frazier
Lee’s Scouting Report: “Andrew Frazier is one of the best athletes in the Alexandria area as he has been clocked a few times in the 4.48/40 range. Not only is he fast, but he is also tough as nails and is a big time playmaker for his team at several positions.”
Bio: With his explosive speed, Andrew Frazier can get the ball in a variety of ways. Last season, for the Pineville Rebels, Frazier accounted for 1,026 all-purpose yards with 780 yards coming on the ground and 246 yards coming as a receiver. His ability as both a runner and receiver has attracted Louisiana College, which is the only school to offer him. He also likes LSU, Louisiana Tech, Grambling, UL, ULM, and Tulane.
“I look for a college that has a high percentage of athletes to graduate with a degree, a supportive athletic department, and degree programs that peak my interest,” Frazier said.
Also, a track and field participant, Frazier can squat 380 pounds, bench press 250 pounds, and clean 275 pounds.
RB Terrence Cook
Lee’s Scouting Report: “Terrence Cook is one of the most versatile small backs in Louisiana. I saw him play in four games last season on full game film. He has great hands, toughness running between the tackles for his size, and has an explosive burst. He has that skill set you saw from Clyde Edwards Helaire (LSU/Kansas City Chiefs) when he was coming out of Catholic High School in Baton Rouge, LA. A lot of big schools are not offering, and they just need to watch more film. He will be special in an offense that demands running backs to be tough and catch a few passes.”
Bio: In only nine games played last season, Terrence Cook showed his effectiveness by rushing for 759 yards and nine touchdowns while also accounting for 284 receiving yards and two more touchdowns. Despite his versatility as a running back and as a wide receiver, Cook has yet to receive any offers.
“I am looking for a school with a spread offensive scheme and I’m looking for a great physical therapy program,” Cook said.
In the weight room, the Northwood High School running back can bench press 215 pounds while squatting another 385 pounds. During the offseason, Cook likes to improve on his 4.5/40 speed by running track and field events.
RB Ron Craten
Lee’s Scouting Report: “I love this kid’s game. Ron Craten has a lot of power when he hits the hole and has a burst to break runs for a big guy that is 220 pounds. He carries his weight really well and I think he can be a DI running back for college. He would make a great back in an old Power I formation for college as he runs a fast 4.6/40 in the open field.”
Bio: Last season, Ron Craten was the thunder to Otis Moore’s lightning in the backfield last season by rushing for 1,205 yards and 19 touchdowns last season. That was just on the offensive side of the football as the Oak Grove High School running back also played defensive back and had 51 tackles, three sacks, three fumble recoveries, and four forced fumbles. Craten not only helped his team win the Class 1A state championship, but he was the Most Valuable Player of the championship game when he ran for 159 yards and two touchdowns in the Superdome against the White Castle Bulldogs. As of now, he has received two offers from Louisiana College and East Texas Baptist University.
RB Jessie Booker
Lee’s Scouting Report: “Jessie Booker is super gifted as he is big, strong, and a smooth runner with great hips. The team doesn’t over use him too. Jessie has really good hands and does a great job running inside as well as outside. I saw him play in two games last season and was really impressed by his ability. “
Bio: Jessie Booker’s combination of 4.57/40 speed and power at 6-0, 215 pounds makes him one of the most dangerous runners in North Louisiana. Even though Booker has not been overused in his career, he still has been able to put up some incredible numbers since he first starter on varsity four years ago running for 2,992 yards and 42 touchdowns. He has also been reliable as a receiver when called upon with 245 receiving yards and three more touchdowns. In the weight room, the talented Wossman running back can bench press 240 pounds, squat 385 pounds, deadlift 400 pounds, and clean 240 pounds. Even though Booker has not received a lot of college attention, his dream is nothing more than to play for programs such as LSU, Alabama, Michigan, Baylor, and Ohio State, which are his favorites.
RB Rodney Thomas
Lee’s Scouting Report: “I think this kid is the most talented player at running back no one knows about but maybe myself outside of Shreveport. The main reason is he starts on both sides of the ball and was All-District as an outside linebacker in 2019. In 2020, Rodney Thomas will be a four year starter because of his serious power, 4.59/40 speed, his ability to cut outside, and break long runs. He has all the tools to be given a chance to be great and is the poster boy for sleeper recruits. If he only concentrated at running back, he would have more numbers and more film for scouts, but he is needed for his team to play full time on defense too.”
RB Ke’Travion Hargrove
Lee’s Scouting Report: “Ke’Travion Hargrove is a really gifted kid that if you give him a small hole and gets through the first contact, it’s over because he’s gone. I like that he’s put on more weight in order to increase his power in 2020. I am also excited to see how effective the bigger version of himself could be. I think he’s a special back for DI schools.”
Bio: “Last season, Ke’Travion Hargrove was the workhorse for the Ruston Bearcats running for 1,537 yards and 20 touchdowns in 2019. Hargrove also showed that he could be just as effective in the passing game as he caught 17 passes for 460 yards and six touchdowns. Hargrove’s 4.45/40 speed and frame has caught the attention of programs such as Louisiana Tech, Florida State, Penn State, South Carolina, Baylor, Boston College, Houston, UL, Michigan State, Oklahoma State, SMU, Southern, Texas State, and Tulane. Hargrove is also a star track runner leading his team to win the indoor state championship where he ran a 10.6 in the 100 meters.
RB Terrence Williams
Lee’s Scouting Report: “Terrence Williams is the most talented big running back in Louisiana, and he still hasn’t scratched the surface of his ability. 2019 was his first year to start a full season, and he showed glimpses of being a big time DI talent. I am hoping 2020 is the year everything comes together for the big guy as he has power, speed, and toughness in the open field. He’s one of those backs that if he breaks the line of scrimmage, no one wants anything to do with tackling this kid in the open field with 4.5/40 speed. I saw some runs in 2019 and if he can do it more consistently in 2020, all the big schools will come calling.”
Bio: Terrence Williams has carried on the strong Many running back tradition by rushing for 2,000 yards and 35 touchdowns. He and his loaded backfield counterparts helped lead the Tigers to the Class 2A state championship game. The All-State running back has already received offers from New Mexico, ULL, Texas State, Lamar, Northwestern State, ULM, McNeese State, Utah State, South Alabama, and Nicholls State. When not playing football, he is participating in track and field events or he can be seen riding his horses.
FB Shawn Metoyer
Lee’s Scouting Report: “In 2019, Shawn Metoyer missed most of the season because of an ACL tear. If Shawn doesn’t get hurt in 2019, he will be on the national scene. This kid is chiseled with 4.65/40 speed, which is moving for a guy that is over 225 pounds. He also can break open in the hole with a big burst.”
Bio: If it wasn’t for a torn ACL injury, Shawn Metoyer would have been on a great junior season and would have been a great compliment for the Indians’ high powered passing attack. In only one game played last season, he ran for 102 yards on only six carries. Squatting 305 pounds with 4.65/40 speed at 6-1, 225 pounds, Metoyer is a physical force running the football. Now, he is looking to avoid the injury bug so colleges can see what he is capable of with more game film to look at.
“I am looking for a college that has a comfortable environment and a clean one providing the education I desire,” Metoyer said.
When not playing football, the Tioga runner likes playing basketball during his free time and hopes to even play for the school before the conclusion of his senior season.
FB Reid Milligan
Lee’s Scouting Report: “I think the best fullback in North Louisiana and maybe in the state is Reid Milligan. Milligan is strong, a big time blocker, and has the football toughness you look for.”
Bio: Reid Milligan is one of those throwback players that can do all the little things great like fullbacks are supposed to do. As a run blocker, Milligan helped pave the way for an Oak Grove offense that went all the way to the Superdome and as a receiver, he was effective with 11 catches for 230 yards. He even made plays on special teams recovering a blocked punt for a touchdown. At 6-1, 230 pounds, he can bench press and hang clean over 315 pounds. His favorite schools growing up are LSU, Louisiana Tech, ULM, Southern Miss, and Mississippi State.
“What I’m looking for in a college is someone who treats their sports and education about the same, and they’re making progress with everything,” Milligan said.
Not only football is a strong suit of his, but playing baseball as a first baseman is as well. When not playing either football or baseball, Milligan enjoys his free time in the outdoors either fishing or hunting.
FB Lane Blue
Lee’s Scouting Report: “Lane Blue started since his freshman season at Cedar Creek High School as both a linebacker and running back. Blue transferred to Neville High School for his senior season in 2020. The kid has a ton of talent, and it was a big loss for Cedar Creek. Not many kids can run a legit 4.6/40 at 6-2, 230 pounds. He is also tough enough to be a linebacker or tight end in college for I-AA or DI schools.”
Bio: The Neville Tigers received a big boost in trying to get back to the Class 4A state championship game when the offense received one of the most productive power runners in North Louisiana in Lane Blue from Cedar Creek High School. For the Cougars, it was a big blow losing its best offensive player as he ran for 3,260 rushing yards and 46 touchdowns over the last three seasons. Not only are his stats impressive, but his physical ability is as well as he can bench press 335 pounds, squat 585 pounds, and clean 290 pounds. With his speed and strength, Blue is hoping that some of his dream schools like LSU and Texas take an interest in his abilities. After football season, Blue loves working on the ranch especially when he gets to wrestle calves or steers.
WR/Slot Darrien Perry
Lee’s Scouting Report: “Like so many players before him at Plain Dealing High School, Darrien Perry is a starter on both sides of the football. Darrien has been a starter since his freshman season and is a great athlete with 4.5/40 speed. He will play quarterback, wide receiver, and defensive back for the team in 2020. I think he is a big time playmaker and a big time sleeper for DI or I-AA colleges.”
Bio: No matter at what position Darrien Perry lined up at, the Plain Dealing Lions were going to make sure that #2 was going to touch the football. Last season, Perry made the greatest impact as a receiver catching over 75 passes for 1,000 yards. With the graduation of quarterback Kenneth Gay, Perry will take majority of snaps at quarterback in 2020. Not only will he take command of the Plain Dealing offense on the gridiron, but he also does so as the basketball team’s starting point guard. As of now, Perry has yet to receive any offers.
WR/Slot DJ Jacobs
Lee’s Scouting Report: “What I love most about DJ Jacobs is that he loves to block, and that’s not something you see from big wide receivers that can run the forty in 4.5 seconds. He is also a big time playmaker on top of that.”
Bio: DJ Jacobs was one of Zach Shaw’s top receivers last season as he had 100 catches for 800 yards and four touchdowns. The 2nd Team All-District selection has no top schools right now, but he is looking for somewhere that has a good engineering program. Currently, he has received two offers from North Carolina at Greensboro and Louisiana Community Christian. During the offseason, Jacobs likes to workout as he can bench press 275 pounds, squat 485 pounds, power clean 300 pounds, and can run a 4.6/40.
WR Jacolby Conner
Lee’s Scouting Report: “Jacolby Conner has all the ability in the world and just needs to have a big senior year to show off more of his skills with 4.53/40 speed. He could grow into a tight end as he has the frame to be 230 pounds easily in college.”
Bio: Last season, the Ouachita Parish Lions did not throw the ball as often as other teams with a talented quarterback and pass receivers, but when Jacolby Conner got the chance, he showed what he could do as he had 28 receptions for 361 yards and three touchdowns averaging over 13 yards per catch. Conner has no top schools at the moment, but he knows what he is looking for in a college.
“I am looking to get new experiences, explore new places, meet new people, and academically benefit and take advantage of the classes given,” Conner said.
The 2nd Team All-District selection can also play basketball and run track as well.
WR Semaj Tennant
Lee’s Scouting Report: “Semaj Tennant is one of the biggest sleepers in all of North Louisiana with 4.5/40 speed, great size, and good hands.”
Bio: In 2019, Semaj Tennant was one of the top pass receivers for the Bastrop Rams reeling in 89 catches for 1,160 yards and 10 touchdowns. Because of his standout junior season, he has already received interest from Northwestern State. In the weight room, Tennant bench presses 180 pounds and squats 230 pounds.
WR Tae Gayden
Lee’s Scouting Report: “Tae Gayden comes from a long line of college prospects in his family. His uncle Kenny Bell played wide receiver for Alabama and his brother Josh Newton is currently starting for ULM. I think he’s even better than both of those players when it comes to upside because of his size, 4.5/40 speed, length, and athleticism. Tae has a lot of room to fill out and will. He is also a very mature kid that has a great work effort and will be a DI starter as either a wide receiver or cornerback.”
Bio: Tae Gayden showed that he is next in line in his talented family to play college football after having 17 catches for 305 yards and eight touchdowns last season as the Dragons’ top receiver. As of now, Nicholls State and ULL have shown the most interest in the Mangham High School receiver/defensive back. In the weight room, Gayden can bench press 225 pounds, power clean 230 pounds, and squats 370 pounds.
WR Adrian Green
Lee’s Scouting Report: “Adrian Green is getting a lot of traction because he has something you can’t coach, which is speed and its legit 4.45/40 speed. In order to become a complete wide receiver, Adrian needs to get stronger and be more consistent catching the football. If he can do that, he’s going to be great.”
Bio: Adrian Green is one of the most explosive pass catchers in the area as he had 44 catches for 700 yards last season while also making All-District and All-Parish last season. The Mansfield receiver’s speed has helped him receive offers from McNeese State, Lane College, and Texas Southern. As college attention is starting to heat up, Green is starting to list a couple of qualifications that he is looking for when choosing a school at the end.
“I’m looking for a place that treats me like family and allows me to contribute,” Green said.
In the weight room, Green can bench press 250 pounds, squat 345 pounds, and power clean 225 pounds. He is also a three sport athlete playing basketball and running track when not playing football. When there is not a ball in his hand, you can find Green with a fishing pole in his hands as fishing is his favorite hobby.
TE Brion Morris
Booker T. Washington
Lee’s Scouting Report: “Brion Morris has grown into a tight end type body, but still plays more of a wide receiver’s game on the field. Brion runs well for a guy that is 210 pounds. He is mature and loves the game of football. He possesses good hands and will block even though he’s not as heavy as he’s going to be in college.”
Bio: The Booker T. Washington Lions love the versatility that Brion Morris provides as he can block on the line of scrimmage and also split out wide as a receiver. Last season, Morris was really productive at the receiver position with 60 catches for 400 yards and three touchdown receptions. The Booker T. Washington receiver/tight end hybrid uses his basketball frame as a power forward to help him as a football player. Growing up, he really liked Baylor and LSU.
TE Shield Taylor
6-4 ¼ , 235
Lee’s Scouting Report: “Shield Taylor is one of the best pass catching tight ends in the state if not the best. Taylor is in an offense that involves the tight end in the passing game and where everyone else lines up as a wide receiver. He is a man among boys in the district as no one can guard him one on one in open space. Taylor does a good job as a blocker, but just needs to become stronger in that aspect of his game. I think he will become the complete tight end in college.”
Bio: With all of the many weapons the Trojans had in 2019, Shield Taylor only had four receptions, but he made the most of those catches by earning 75 yards, which is close to 19 yards per reception. At 6-4 1/4, 235 pounds with 4.6/40 speed, a 325 pound max bench press, and a 455 max squat, Taylor has been in contact with schools such as Stanford, Duke, Northwestern, Virginia, Boston College, Georgia Tech, Arkansas, UCLA, Columbia, and Arizona. When not playing football, Taylor is on the school’s track team throwing and running in events. Off the field, he is a super smart kid as he has a 4.35 GPA and a 27 on his ACT.
TE Sam Andrews
Lee’s Scouting Report: “Sam Andrews is one of the most athletic, strongest, and biggest tight ends I’ve seen in a long time in high school. This kid is a great blocker that loves contact and can run a 5.0/40. If you see this big kid run, it would amaze you what he could do in a uniform and pads as he looks faster than his forty time. If Ruston threw the ball more to the tight ends, he would be capable of having 25 to 30 catches a season because of his good hands.”
Bio: At 6-2, 275 pounds, Sam Andrews contributes mostly at defensive tackle for the Ruston Bearcats because that is where the team needs him to play, but because of his athleticism, he will also get some looks at tight end just like when the Bearcats experimented putting Ray Parker (LSU) as a tight end a couple of seasons ago. Growing up, Andrews has liked watching college teams play including Southern, LSU, Tulane and UL. He has also been to some TCU games as well. Not only is he a talented football player, but he can also throw a shot put over 45 feet, can squat 435 pounds, bench press 285 pounds, and power clean 275 pounds.
TE Rylan Green
Lee’s Scouting Report: “Rylan Green is the best blocking tight end I saw play in Louisiana last season, and the kid can run too. The team just doesn’t throw to the tight end a lot in the offense.”
Bio: Rylan Green has impressed a lot of DI schools as ULM, South Alabama, McNeese State, and Northwestern State have all offered the West Monroe tight end.
“Academically, I am looking for a good business school and for football, I am looking for a team that utilizes the tight end position.”
Since then, Green has committed to the ULM Warhawks. During the offseason, Green likes to improve on his game even more as a football player.
TE Dalton Allen
Lee’s Scouting Report: “When I saw Dalton Allen starting as a freshman for Oak Grove in 2017, I knew that the kid has a chance to be great. You don’t see too many kids block the way he did as a freshman and run the way he can run with 4.8/40 speed. Oak Grove doesn’t throw it much but when they do, you see one of the most athletic tight ends in the state as he has great hands and can run after the catch. He reminds me of a more athletic Richard Dickson(LSU), but is also more advanced as a blocker already than Dickson.
Bio: Dalton Allen played a key role for the Oak Grove Tigers’ Class 1A state championship run in 2019 as a lead blocker for two 1,000 yard rushers in Otis Moore and Ron Craten. Allen’s versatility and blocking skills have helped him receive offers from ULM, South Alabama, Nicholls State, Southern Miss, Lamar, Southeastern, and Northwestern State. He has also gone on visits to Arkansas State, Ole Miss, Louisiana Tech, and ULL. Most recently, he has committed to Southern Miss. Although he has committed to the Golden Eagles, he is still waiting on an offer from his favorite school growing up, which is the LSU Tigers.
TE Justin Wilson
Lee’s Scouting Report: “Justin Wilson looks like a DI player now in build and the way he moves. He also has experience playing fullback, tight end and defensive end for the team. I saw him play all three spots in 2019. He has so much untapped talent going into his senior year and would love to see him dominant more in 2020 with 4.79/40 speed.”
Bio: Justin Wilson was a 2nd Team All-District selection last season as both an offensive and defensive lineman for the Richwood Rams and has already received an offer from Louisiana College. Wilson also likes Oklahoma State, ULL, Louisiana Tech, LSU, Florida, and Florida State as some of the top schools he has always wanted to play for. As a basketball player, the Richwood two way position player does a great job coming off the bench averaging 12 points per game. When not playing football, he enjoys playing NBA 2K.
OT Kendrick Metoyer
Lee’s Scouting Report: “If Kendrick Metoyer can get all his core in order by the time he graduates from high school, he can point on a map and pick a school. The kid has some of the best feet on a big guy I’ve seen in this class. He also has great hands in pass blocking. Once he gets his hands on you, it’s over and forget getting a sack. He is a great talent.”
Bio: Kendrick Metoyer’s upside has attracted a lot of college programs as Mississippi State, Washington, and Missouri have all inquired about him. Metoyer is looking to major in engineering mechanics in college. The Wossman High School offensive tackle can squat 395 pounds, power clean 255 pounds, and can run a 5.2/40. During the offseason, he enjoys listening to music.
OT Brennan Ravarre
Lee’s Scouting Report: “Brennan Ravarre has long arms with good feet and is still in the process of filling out. For now, he is lean at 270 pounds, but he will be over 300 pounds in college. Brennan will be a late bloomer with a ton of upside for college.”
Bio: At 6-4, 270 pounds, Brennan Ravarre is a guy that has the frame to fill out and become a prototypical offensive tackle in college. When you also combine his frame with a 250 pound bench press, 370 pound max squat, and a 245 pound max clean, Ravarre has potential to even surpass those numbers in college. Speaking of college, he has no current top schools, but he knows what he is looking for when choosing the right college to attend.
“I’m looking for somewhere I can fit in and feel like home where I can focus on my school work and football,” Ravarre said.
When not playing football, he enjoys hunting and fishing during his off time.
OT Erron Bean
Lee’s Scouting Report: “Erron Bean is one of those kids that looks the part and checks all the boxes. What I would love to see him do in 2020 is dominate more. Erron can be as good as he wants to be with great size, length, 4.9/40 speed, and upside. He might become a national recruit with a good season.”
Bio: Erron Bean’s upside has attracted a lot of schools to offer the Huntington High School lineman. Programs like UL, McNeese State, Northwestern State, and Northeastern have all offered Bean, but it was his first offer that intrigued him most as he is committed to Louisiana Tech.
“The community that surrounds Louisiana Tech and the brotherhood is what I love the most about,” Bean said. “I love how they communicate and work with each other on and off the field.”
The former basketball center has decided to quit the sport just to focus more on football.
OG Chase Underwood
Lee’s Scouting Report: “This is a player that is just starting to come into his own by becoming bigger and stronger to set himself up for a great 2020 season. I think Chase Underwood can become a great offensive guard in college because of his good feet and size. He should have no problem getting to over 285 pounds in college and at the same time, still be quick off the ball.”
Bio: Over the years, the Mangham Dragons have pride themselves on offensive line play in order to control the line of scrimmage. This season, the Dragons have one of the best offensive linemen returning in North Louisiana in Chase Underwood, who is coming off a great junior season earning 1st Team All-District, NELA, and All-State honors. At 6-3, 270 pounds bench pressing 365 pounds, squatting 435 pounds, and cleaning 265 pounds with 5.1/40 speed, schools such as ULM, McNeese State, Northwestern State, and Nicholls State have all shown interest in him.
OG Ben Merchant
Lee’s Scouting Report: “Ben Merchant is a big time DI sleeper that is tough and runs a 5.4/40. In college, he is more of a mauler for college football, but he is a great run blocker.”
Bio: Bench pressing 280 pounds, squatting 405 pounds, and cleaning 225 pounds, Cedar Creek High School offensive guard Ben Merchant is a force to be reckoned with at 6-4, 310 pounds. His top schools are McNeese State, Arkansas Monticello, and Hendrix College.
“I want to go somewhere that I love and will have a chance to be a starter in the first two years,” Merchant said.
When not playing football, Merchant likes playing baseball or he can be seen hunting or fishing.
OG Richard Page
Lee’s Scouting Report: “I was really impressed with how this kid moves for his size and how strong he is. He is a tough kid too and is a diamond in the rough as they say. I think he’s DI and is quick enough to pull on run plays in college too.”
Bio: Richard Page will be one of the big guys up front offensively in order to continue opening up holes for Ruston’s talented running backs. At 6-2, 285 pounds with a 295 pound max bench press, a 595 pound max squat, and a 275 pound max clean, he is more than capable of getting many more pancake blocks in 2020. His favorite school growing up is Louisiana Tech and would like to attend a similar college, especially one that has a good engineering program.
OG Dylan Dauzart
Lee’s Scouting Report: “Dylan Dauzart will be a four year letterman and a three year starter in 2020. This kid has a lot of upper and lower body strength. Dylan comes from a pass offense and already was a good run blocker. He is quick enough to pull as an offensive guard on run plays making him a sleeper at the DI level.”
Bio: Dylan Dauzart’s top schools are Louisiana Tech, Lamar, and Nicholls State. He has also received offers from East Central University and Mary Hardin-Baylor. When not playing football, Dauzart likes working out as he has a 295 max bench press, a 500 pound squat max, and a 5.2/40 time.
OG Cameron Foster
Lee’s Scouting Report: “Cameron Foster has some of the best feet I’ve seen on an offensive guard in high school for the 2021 Class. I have seen several of Northwood’s games, and this kid can flat out come off the ball. When he gets out to block, he is very quick, but he is also really strong and finishes his blocks. What’s also impressive is that he goes all out on defense starting on the defensive line, and he’s DI on that side of the football too. Either way, Cameron could be a defensive end or offensive guard for a major program in college.
Bio: Cameron Foster is a dominating presence on both the offensive and defensive lines for the Northwood Falcons. Last season, Foster had over 27 pancake blocks on offense and on defense, he had 15 tackles, a sack, and a tackle for loss. He can bench press 300 pounds, power clean 285 pounds, and squat over 500 pounds. His top schools are Air Force, Grambling, Alcorn State, Northwestern State, Lamar, and McNeese State.
“Some factors that I am considering when I am choosing a college are if they have my major, which is Communications, a high graduation rate, and that there is a good understanding amongst the coaching staff,” Foster said.
Not only is he a standout football player, but he is a standout center for his basketball team and has also won a state championship on his track team throwing the shot put as only a sophomore.
OG/OC Marsh Wood
Lee’s Scouting Report: “Marsh Wood is coached by his dad and also plays baseball, which he is pretty good in that sport as well. When playing football, what’s most impressive is that he starts on both sides of the football at tight end and defensive end for the team with legit 4.79/40 speed. Marsh is super athletic and has not even hit his full upside yet. Potentially, he can become a big time steal for college. The kid has big time DI football skills, but right now, he loves baseball more. I think he has now grown into an athletic sleeper on the offensive line for college.”
Bio: Marsh Wood is the son of Tallulah Academy head coach Bart Wood and has a chance to play at the next level in both football and baseball. As of now, he has yet to receive any offers for football.
“I am looking for a college that feels like home,” Wood said.
OC Carson Bruno
Lee’s Scouting Report: “Carson Bruno is one of those kids that has played on the defensive line as a starter now for three years as the team needs him on that side of the football. I think his position in college will be on the offensive line as a pulling offensive guard or center. In my opinion, he will make one heck of an offensive guard in college with 5.0/40 speed and he’s already got good feet for the offensive line.
Bio: Last season, Carson Bruno made All-District and All-City honors with 39 tackles and three sacks. Bruno, who is the son of Byrd offensive line coach Lindsey Bruno, is currently committed to play at Louisiana Tech.
“Louisiana Tech has just done a great job with recruiting,” Bruno said. “They treat you like family and have a winning program.”
When not playing football, Bruno is either playing basketball or fishing.
OC Timothy Thomas
Lee’s Scouting Report: “I saw this for myself in 2019 as Timothy Thomas has great feet and is strong for college now. He is just a big time sleeper for college as he runs a 5.5/40. Thomas grew a lot since the 2019 season as he was 6-1, but now he is 6-2 and a half almost approaching 6-3 in height.”
Bio: Timothy Thomas was an All-District selection for the Red River Bulldogs last season. As of now, his top schools are Southeastern and Wingate University.
“I am looking for a good education and opportunity to play at the next level,” Thomas said.
Thomas has some of the measurables needed to play at the next level as he can squat 400 pounds, bench press 275 pounds, power clean 225 pounds, and can run a 5.5/40. When not playing football, he enjoys hunting, fishing, playing video games, and going to church.
OC Aaron Dotson
Lee’s Scouting Report: “I love this kid’s tough man attitude on every play. When you line up against him, be ready to play hard or you will end up on your back alot. Aaron Dotson is a sleeper for I-AA and maybe could even be DI for the right school.”
Bio: On both sides of the football, Aaron Dotson is the anchor for the Tioga Indians. On offense, Dotson protected the blindside of record setting QB Blake McGehee and on defense, he had 19 tackles as well as four sacks last season. At 6-1, 275 pounds, Dotson has put up incredible numbers in the weight room including squatting over 550 pounds, bench pressing 345 pounds, and power cleaning 315 pounds. His top schools are Louisiana Tech and Northwestern State. When not playing football, Dotson can be seen participating in track and field events as well as on the school’s cheer team.
K Will Perkins
Evangel Christian Academy
Lee’s Scouting Report: “Will Perkins’ kickoffs hit 90/% of the time in the end zone as touchbacks. Perkins has range and is also 52/54 in extra point attempts. He is also a right handed baseball pitcher for Evangel Christian and can throw it 91 miles per hour.”
Bio: As mentioned earlier, there is not a whole lot that Will Perkins cannot do whether it is kicking off, kicking field goals, or throwing a baseball. He has actually received some baseball offers currently. He also likes LSU, Houston, Louisiana Tech, and UL as some of the schools that he could see himself playing sports for. In the weight room, Perkins can bench press 250 pounds, squat 315 pounds, and power clean 225 pounds.
K Trotter Lafollette
Lee’s Scouting Report: “During the season, Trotter Lafollette made a 48 yard field goal at North Desoto High School. He is also a punter for the team and is becoming a pretty good punter going into the 2020 season.”
Bio: Trotter Lafollette was a key reason for the Many Tigers’ journey to the Class 2A state championship game last season. In 2019, the Many senior kicker converted 11 of 13 field goals including two converted field goals in the Class 2A state championship game. This past offseason, Lafollette went to the nationally recognized Kohl’s kicking camp and showed off his punting skills as well by having the third best punt at the whole camp with a 52 yard punt along with a 4.35 second hang time. The versatile specialist has yet to receive an offer and has no top schools currently.
“I’m looking for a team with a good special teams core and somewhere that I can form bonds that will last a lifetime,” Lafollette said.
Lafollette is also not your typical kicker as he can run a 4.65/40 while bench pressing 175 pounds and squatting 355 pounds.
K Luke Stagg
Lee’s Scouting Report: “Luke Stagg has a good leg. What I like most about him is he doesn’t get rattled, is very good from 45 yards in, and has the leg for 50 yards. Improving on his kickoffs will make him a better kicker, and he’s already become better kicking off hitting the end zone more on touchbacks.”
Bio: Luke Stagg transferred from West Ouachita High School over the summer of 2020 to West Monroe High School. Now, with punter Peyton Todd’s torn ACL injury, it sure looks like Stagg will be taking over both kicking and punting duties. Stagg made All-District three times for the West Ouachita Chiefs. His longest made field goal in a game came 41 yards against Ouachita High School. As a punter, he averaged 40 yards per punt. What also sets him apart is being a gym rat by bench pressing 315 pounds.
LS Issac White
Lee’s Scouting Report: “This kid is the toughest long snapper in Louisiana as he is also the team’s starting defensive end in Class 5A. I am impressed with his toughness as a defensive end and he is also a long lean kid that does a great job of long snapping for his team.”
Bio: Isaac White is a football player of many talents entering his third season as the Ruston Bearcats’ starting long snapper, and is also coming off a season in which he had 45 tackles, four tackles for loss, four sacks, seven quarterback hurries, and three pass breakups as also the team’s starting defensive end. White can bench press 225 pounds, squat 350 pounds, power clean 255 pounds, and runs a 4.9/40.
DE Wesley Williams
Lee’s Scouting Report: “This kid has a ton of ability because he can run and he plays hard, which I saw myself in person. For such a big guy, Wesley Williams moves like a linebacker and will get in the 260 to 270 pound range for college, but will still keep his burst off the edge.”
Bio: Wesley Williams is an athletic specimen for the Richwood Rams as he is not only a 1st Team All-District football player, but he is also a 1st Team All-District basketball player as well. Despite his athleticism, Williams has not received any offers, but he does like UL, Northwestern State, and LSU as some of his top schools.
DE Jalen Penegar
Lee’s Scouting Report: “Jalen Penegar makes a lot of plays for a big guy and runs faster than he’s timed. The kid is very strong and is built like a DI player. Not only does he look the part, but he plays it as well. I saw this kid play, and he’s got what it takes to produce at the college level. He is not as tall as DI schools like their defensive ends to be, but he’s a good player.”.
Bio: For a defensive lineman, Jalen Penegar made a lot of plays for the Ruston Bearcats producing impressive numbers including accounting for 94 total tackles, eight sacks, 18 quarterback hurries, and nine tackles for loss in 2019 after improving on his numbers the season prior. As far as colleges are concerned, none have officially offered the Bearcats’ tackling machine, but he can see himself playing for schools like Prairie View A&M, ULM, UL, and Abilene Christian.
“I’m looking for a college that just wants me to be a part of their team as much as I want to be a part of it,” Penegar said.
Not only Penegar’s football statistics are impressive, but his weight room maxes are impressive in their own right as he can bench press 575 pounds, squat 575 pounds, and power clean 305 pounds all while having 4.82/40 speed.
DE Jaylen Green
Lee’s Scouting Report: “This kid is a man among boys in the trenches. I saw Jaylen Green play in three games so far over the last two years. When you watch him, he’s everywhere making tackles sideline to sideline and for 280 pounds, that’s impressive. He is also a very strong kid for his age too.”
Bio: As a three year starter already, Jaylen Green has had himself a successful prep career for the Minden Crimson Tide. Last season, the veteran defensive lineman had 45 total tackles (27 solo, 18 assists), two sacks, eight quarterback hurries, one fumble recovery, and two pass breakups. The All-District selection also has received offers from Louisiana College, Lake Erie College, Northeastern State, and Arkansas Monticello. In the weight room, he can bench press 335 pounds, squat 420 pounds, and power clean 235 pounds. Not only is Green a talented football player, but he is quite the bowler as well.
DE Ty Allen
Lee’s Scouting Report: “Ty Allen is a tough kid that will grow into a defensive tackle for college. He runs in the 4.9 or 5.0/40 range with good feet and can also make plays while doing so. The kid is also a run stuffer and is tough as nails. I think he will be in the 275 to 280 pound range with another year or two in the weight room. In the end, he could be a sleeper player for nearby schools such as ULM, Louisiana Tech, and Northwestern State.”
Bio: Ty Allen is looking to carry on the strong defensive tradition at West Monroe High School. The 6-2, 255 pound defensive lineman had 44 tackles and two sacks last season. He can bench press 225 pounds, squat over 350 pounds, and power clean over 250 pounds. Currently, his top schools are Northwestern State, Southern Miss, and Arkansas Monticello. When not playing football, Allen can be seen playing basketball.
DT Trenton DeFatta
Lee’s Scouting Report: “Trenton DeFatta is a big, strong kid that will just need to put on another 15 to 20 pounds for college in order to play defensive tackle. He moves really well and I would not rule out him playing either offensive guard or center in college as a DI player.”
Bio: So far, Trenton DeFatta has received two offers from East Texas Baptist University and Mary-Hardin Baylor after having 46 tackles and three sacks in 2019. DeFatta also likes Louisiana Tech, Northwestern State, and ULL.
“I look for a high graduation rate, a good academic program, good athletic opportunities, and I also look for what academic programs are offered,” DeFatta said.
In the weight room, the Parkway High School defensive lineman is a hard worker as he can bench press 285 pounds, squat 455 pounds, power clean 245 pounds, and can run a 5.3/40. When not playing football, DeFatta will be seen playing baseball for his school.
DT Eric Pleasant
Lee’s Scouting Report: “Eric Pleasant is one of the best DI defensive tackles I have ever seen in person for the 2021 Class. Pleasant can really move with great feet and gives high effort on top of having the talent. He could play any spot on the defensive line in college.”
Bio: Eric Pleasant was just starting to receive college attention before the COVID-19 pandemic started as Northwestern State was beginning to contact him. Pleasant’s dream is to play for the LSU Tigers as he grew up watching them. In the weight room, Pleasant can bench press 275 pounds, squat 405 pounds, and can run a 5.5/40. He was going to try out for track and field to throw the shot put, but because of the virus forcing to cancel all sports in the spring, he would not get the chance to do so. When not playing football, the Ouachita Parish defensive lineman likes to make some of his own music.
DT Desmond Pennywell
Lee’s Scouting Report: “Desmond Pennywell is the most gifted nose guard type on the list for college. He is still raw, but wow, he can run for a big man. He looks like a man among boys in a uniform and on the field. He has shown moments of greatness, but just needs to show more of that in 2020.”
Bio: Desmond Pennywell was such a force for the Woodlawn High School Knights that he made All-District on both the offensive and defensive line. As of now, he has received offers from Northwestern State, Louisiana Tech, and Mississippi College. Pennywell also plays basketball as a center where he is primarily used as a rebounder on the court. The Woodlawn lineman also happens to be one of the strongest players in the state as he can bench press 425 pounds, squat 600 pounds, and can power clean 275 pounds. It is even more impressive what he can do, especially playing with a heart monitor.
DT Jarmoin Griffin
Lee’s Scouting Report: “Jarmoin Griffin has the feet and effort you look for. I am impressed with this kid, and he is flying way under the radar for DI. He is the perfect DI noseguard for a few elite teams.”
Bio: Last season, there were not a lot of offensive linemen that were willing to go against Jarmoin Griffin as he made 1st Team All-District and 2nd Team All-State. As of right now, he has received one offer from Henderson State. His favorite college growing up is LSU. The North Caddo lineman goes both ways, and there is no wonder why as he runs a 5.05/40, bench presses 265 pounds, squats 335 pounds as well as deadlifts 475 pounds. When not playing football, Griffin participates in track.
DT Chris Simon
Lee’s Scouting Report: “Chris Simon has three things you love in a big man, which is heart, high effort, and good feet. Chris could start at defensive end in college. That’s how well he moves for a big guy.
Bio: In 2019, Chris Simon was the run stuffer on the Marksville Tigers defense with 37 solo tackles and two sacks. In the weight room, Simon has a max squat of 425 pounds, a max clean of 285 pounds, and can run a 4.9/40. As of now, Simon is open to any colleges that take a chance to offer him.
DT Vincent Hollins
Lee’s Scouting Report: “Vincent Hollins could be a nose guard in college and is quick enough to be a defensive tackle. I love this kid’s effort and has really good feet.”
Bio: Vincent Hollins was one of the key defenders on Ferriday’s defensive front as he not only made All-District, but he also helped lead the Trojans to their first state championship in 64 years. Now, entering his third season as a starter, he will be trying to make sure that Trojans fans do not have to wait nearly as long for another state title. Even though Hollins has grown up liking LSU, he has no top colleges at the moment and is open to any offers.
“I am just looking for a home away from home,” Hollins said.
In the weight room, the Ferriday defensive lineman can bench press 275 pounds, squat 485 pounds, deadlift 500 pounds, and can power clean 255 pounds. When not playing football, Hollins enjoys hanging out with friends and playing a little basketball.
MLB Jakobe Brock
Lee’s Scouting Report: “Jakobe Brock is the biggest defensive sleeper in all of the Alexandria area. The kid is a human tackling machine as he runs a legit 4.79/40. He carries his weight really well and doesn’t need any more weight for college. He just keeps getting better each year.”
Bio: In 2019, Jakobe Brock was all over the field on defense posting an incredible 176 tackles, 7.5 sacks and two fumble recoveries. The Tioga All-District selection has already received an offer from Northwestern State. Also, ULM and Louisiana Tech have also shown interest in the 6-2, 240 pound linebacker. In the weight room, Brock can bench press 310 pounds, power clean 275 pounds, and squat 580 pounds.
MLB Jake St. Andre
Lee’s Scouting Report: “I saw Jake St. Andre play in 2018 and 2019. I am impressed with his ability to read and make tackles. He is what they call a football player and someone will get a steal in a future starting middle linebacker at either the DI or I-AA level.”
Bio: Jake St. Andre’s top schools are UL, Stetson, Air Force, Northwestern State, Navy, Lamar, and Davidson. When choosing a college, St. Andre is not only looking at the football program, but even much more than that.
“I am looking at the college that sets me up best for life after football,” Jack St. Andre said.
The Haughton tackling machine had 145 tackles, five sacks, and 17 tackles for loss last season. When not playing football, he spends his free time either hunting or fishing.
MLB Kylyn Lewis
Lee’s Scouting Report: “Kylyn Lewis grew into an outside linebacker for the 2020 season. Kylyn will be a four year starter this upcoming season and has some serious 4.6/40 speed for a kid that is 215 pounds. Early on in his career, he has played wide receiver and defensive back, but now, he has grown into a defensive end/linebacker for the team. I believe he is a big time sleeper at the DI or I-AA level because of his toughness, and he still has room to get not only bigger, but faster in college.”
Bio: Kylyn Lewis had an All-State season transitioning from wide receiver and defensive back to tight end and linebacker in 2019. Lewis was one of the key defenders in the Trojans’ run to its first state championship in 63 years. In the weight room, he can bench press 265 pounds and squat over 415 pounds. The Ferriday High School senior linebacker also plays basketball when football season is over.
MLB Beau Bennett
Lee’s Scouting Report: “Beau Bennett starts at both tight end and linebacker for the team. Beau is one of the most athletic and toughest kids in North Louisiana with legit 4.55/40 speed. For a kid that is over 235 pounds, he is really athletic as he can play either H-back, tight end or linebacker for many DI programs.”
Bio: Beau Bennett, who is the younger brother of fellow St. Frederick defender Gordon Bennett and son of former West Monroe player Fred Bennett, is making his own name as one of the best football players for the 2021 class in North Louisiana. Schools such as Southern Miss, Louisiana Tech, Northwestern State, and McNeese State have all been in contact with the versatile player. With his 6-2, 235 pound frame, Bennett can also bench 315, squat 450, and powerclean 300 pounds. He will also participate on his track and field team his senior season. When not playing football, Bennett enjoys working out, throwing the football, and hanging out with friends.
MLB Ashur Hall
Lee’s Scouting Report: “Ashur Hall is very underrated as he is a ball hawk, leader, and team captain with 4.79/40 speed. You take this kid because of his high effort and toughness.”
Bio: In 2019, Ashur Hall was a complete tackling machine for the Benton Tigers with 101 tackles, 16 tackles for losses, five sacks, and one interception. The Benton senior linebacker has achieved a lot of honors over his career earning 1st Team All-District, 1st Team All-Parish, and 2nd Team All-City honors. As of now, his top schools are ULM, Central Arkansas, and Northeastern Oklahoma. In the weight room, he can bench press 275 pounds, power clean 280 pounds, and max squat 405 pounds. When not playing football, he can play some basketball and throw discus as well as the javelin on the school’s track team.
OLB Jaden Moore
Lee’s Scouting Report: “Jaden Moore is a really gifted kid. I have seen this kid play numerous times including two times in person and three times on film. Jaden has started since the first game of his freshman season and has legit 4.5/40 speed, but what’s more important is that he has football speed too and reads well. He is a big time sleeper.”
Bio: While people may pay attention to what Green Oaks does on the offensive side of the football, Jaden Moore is entertaining to watch himself as a starting linebacker for the Giants. Last season, the 1st Team All-District selection was one of the most productive linebackers in the state with 120 tackles, four tackles for loss, two interceptions, and three sacks. The three star Green Oaks linebacker has received offers from UAB, Illinois State, Southern Miss, Texas Southern, Missouri State, Northwestern State, Northeastern State, Southern, Ouachita Baptist, Tulsa, McNeese State, and ULM. Just recently, Moore decided to make his decision to commit to the Tulsa Golden Hurricanes.
“I love the campus and coaches and they made me feel like that’s home,” Moore said.
When not playing football, Moore can be seen working out as he has a max bench press of 240 pounds, a max squat of 360 pounds, and a max clean of 220 pounds.
OLB Jermaine McNeal
Lee’s Scouting Report: “Jermaine McNeal is the most gifted player coming back on the Alexandria High School defense with a team full of talent again in 2020. McNeal runs a 4.65/40 with good instincts, toughness, and strength. He is a great athlete that will get up to 215 to 220 in college. He may be more of a middle linebacker for his team because that’s where they want him to play at, but he is an outside linebacker for college.
Bio: After losing the likes of Jacobian Guillory (LSU) and Bud Clark (Virginia), all eyes are on Jermaine McNeal to be the standout of the Alexandria defense after having an amazing 150 tackles and three sacks last season. The 1st Team All-CENLA selection is also a talented basketball player as he starts at power forward for the team. As of now, McNeal has yet to receive any offers, but he does look for a school that has a good engineering program. He also likes LSU, ULM, and TCU.
OLB Khameron Williams
Lee’s Scouting Report: “This is a very unique player. Khameron Williams has played a lot of football for Bolton High School as a linebacker, running back, defensive end, and tight end as a four year starter. I like him to settle in as a middle linebacker in college. He has the feet, 4.6/40 speed, the build to become 6-1, 235 pounds, and has the strength to become a good one. If you watch him run as a running back, you can see that he would be a great outside linebacker.”
OLB Jermaria Bailey
5-10 ½, 225
Lee’s Scouting Report: “If this kid was 6-0 tall in height, he would be a national recruit. I still think he’s a Power 5 signee because he’s big time gifted and fast with 4.6/40 speed. He reads, reacts, and finishes as good as anyone in the state.”
Bio: Jermaria Bailey had a fantastic season for the Northwood Falcons in 2019 with 125 tackles, 19 tackles for losses, 1.5 sacks, one safety, one interception, and three blocked punts. As of now, Bailey has received two offers from Carthage College and Louisiana College. The Northwood linebacker also likes Grambling and Louisiana Tech.
“I want to go to a college that feels like home,” Bailey said.
In the weight room, he can bench press 295, squat 495, and can power clean 225 pounds.
OLB Makarios “Junior” Brown
Lee’s Scouting Report: “This former running back has grown into a really good athletic linebacker. I saw this kid play his sophomore year in person and he’s impressive. Now that he has more weight and will get bigger, he will be even more impressive with 4.55/40 speed.”
Bio: In 2019, Makarios “Junior” Brown made it a smooth transition from running back to linebacker for the C.E. Byrd Yellow Jackets accounting for 75 total tackles, 55 solo tackles, 13 tackles for loss, three sacks, three fumble recoveries, and one pass breakup. Growing up, his favorite schools were LSU, Alabama, Auburn, Florida State, and Clemson. When not playing football, Brown enjoys cutting hair, riding ATVs, bowling, and fishing.
CB Kashie Natt
Lee’s Scouting Report: “Kashie Natt can be as good as he wants to be in football. He is a late bloomer for football because he’s All-State in basketball, which will give you an idea of his leaping ability and effort. He might be the most gifted tall cornerback in North Louisiana that no one knows about.”
Bio: Kashie Natt is one of the best two sport athletes in North Louisiana. As a football player, Natt was effective as a runner rushing for 1,000 yards and eight touchdowns. As a basketball player, he averaged 20 points per game, 15 rebounds per game, 6.8 steals, and seven blocks per game. The 1st Team All-District selection in both sports also can bench press 185 pounds and can squat 297 pounds.
CB Jared Savannah
Lee’s Scouting Report: “Jared Savannah has a lot of raw untapped upside. The kid can run a legit 4.5/40 and he’s a really good athlete. After missing some time with injuries, Savannah looks to show everyone in 2020 what he has. I saw this kid start as a freshman in person at both wide receiver and defensive back. He was on his way to being a player then and is now, a big diamond in the rough for recruiting.”
Bio: Even though Jared Savannah had to miss the entire 2019 season because of injury for the Loyola College Prep Flyers, he is still the team’s best athlete and expects to have a great senior year. Because of losing last season, Savannah has received no offers, but he did grow up wanting to play for Texas as well as for other schools that meet his criteria.
“What I’m looking for in a school is an university that will not only provide me with a top education, but will also give me the exposure and training needed to pursue a professional athletic career,” Savannah said.
Savannah has a potential of having a professional athletic career in some capacity as he is a four sport athlete that also runs track, plays basketball, and plays lacrosse. The Loyola College Prep senior can also bench press 215 pounds, power clean 205 pounds, and squat 275 pounds. It is hard to find off time, especially with all of the sports that he plays, but when he does not play sports, Savannah enjoys listening to music and hanging out with friends.
CB Jyron Ellis
Lee’s Scouting Report: “Jyron Ellis is overlooked because the team and senior class has a few DI players that can run. Jyron might be the most gifted in the speed department on the team. I love his toughness for a small defensive back. I think he will be a DI cornerback for the next level as he plays the run and the pass. I think he is a hidden sleeper in the city of Shreveport with 4.49/40 speed.”
Bio: Jyron Ellis had a great season as a 1st Team All-District selection at defensive back. Green Oaks’ best cover cornerback has received college attention despite the attention that his teammates are getting. Currently, he has received offers from UAB and Graceland University. Ellis also likes to play for LSU, UTSA, Houston, and TCU.
“I want somewhere I can get my education and graduate to become somebody that can help the community as much as I can,” Ellis said. “I want to be successful by graduating from high school and college as well as provide for my family and others in the community.”
When not playing football, Ellis enjoys working out and playing basketball.
CB Xavier Wright
Lee’s Scouting Report: “Xavier Wright is a very underrated cornerback with the ability to cover man, and plays bigger than his size with good hips along with 4.5/40 speed.”
Bio: Xavier Wright was all over the place in Richwood’s secondary last season when he achieved 1st Team All-District honors with 38 tackles, 19 pass breakups, and two forced fumbles. In the weight room, Wright can squat 225 pounds and can power clean 195 pounds. Despite the on field success, the Richwood defender has yet to receive an offer. Wherever he ends up going to college, he will be majoring in sociology. When not playing football, Wright just likes to cut loose and have fun with his friends.
CB Tracy Hudson
Lee’s Scouting Report: “Tracy Hudson’s dad played defensive back for Louisiana Tech and was a pretty good player back in the day. His son has a big time game too, and I think is a big time sleeper with 4.5/40 speed. “
Bio: In 2019, Tracy Hudson had himself an outstanding season with 53 tackles along with five interceptions while making 1st Team All-District and All-Parish. The former Bossier High School transfer likes Northwestern State, Louisiana Tech, Tulane, and ULM, but he has also received some college interests from Texas State.
“I am looking for somewhere that I can start a new family at,” Hudson said.
In college, Hudson looks to major in engineering. For the track team, Hudson runs the 100 and 200 meters. In the weight room, he can bench press 235 pounds, 380 pounds, and can run a 4.7/40. When not playing football, Hudson enjoys working out and spending time with family.
FS Austin King
Lee’s Scouting Report: “Austin King is one of the biggest hitters in North Louisiana for a safety, and he is still growing while learning the game with 4.55/40 speed.”
Bio: It is incredible that someone as aggressive as Austin King was only in his first year playing football, but that was the case for the Minden safety. In his first year, the Glenbrook High School transfer really showed his potential by accounting for 64 total tackles (44 solo, 20 assists), two interceptions, a forced fumble, four pass breakups, and two fumble recoveries. King, who also is a talented baseball player, currently has no offers, but likes LSU, Alabama, and Louisiana Tech as some of his top schools.
FS Delatrion Moton
Lee’s Scouting Report: “Here is a kid who just started playing quarterback in 2019 and looked good with 4.6/40 speed. I think Delatrion Moton would project as a big time free safety for a big time DI school. Delatrion will be in the 215 pound range when it is all said and done. He is a strong kid and is tough to bring down as a quarterback.”
Bio: Delatrion Moton gave the Woodlawn Knights offense a boost when he took over as the starting quarterback midseason and threw for 1,500 yards. The honorable mention All-District football selection is impressive on the football field, but might be known more for his skills on the basketball court as he can play three different positions while averaging 23 points per game, six rebounds per game, and five assists per game in 2019. The two sport Woodlawn star athlete has yet to receive any offers for either sport, but is open to receive any offers that come his way. In the weight room, he can bench press 235 pounds, squat 215 pounds, and can clean 185 pounds. During the offseason, Moton likes to chill and hang out with his friends.
FS Luke Miletello
Lee’s Scouting Report: “Luke Miletello is a sleeper safety from C.E. Byrd High School, who is starting to grow into his frame for his senior season. He is very active and he does a good job of diagnosing plays in order to make good tackles. With 4.65/40 speed already, this is a kid who has a great frame and will be a 200 plus pound player in college.”
Bio: Luke Miletello will be part of one of the best safety tandems in Class 5A alongside Brayden Hermes. Last season, Miletello made 1st Team All-District by having 66 total tackles, 33 solo tackles, and nine tackles for loss. So far, the C.E. Byrd safety has talked to some D-II and D-III schools, but he would want more than anything for an opportunity to play at his dream school, which is LSU. He also would like playing for the Arkansas Razorbacks if that opportunity comes along. Once he gets to college, he would like to major in finance and business. Miletello uses his 4.5/40 speed in track as he participates in the 200 meter relays and the hurdles. In the weight room, he can bench press 225 pounds and can squat 355 pounds.
FS Jason Cooper
Lee’s Scouting Report: “Jason Cooper is one of the most gifted defensive backs to play for West Monroe, but he just needs to stay healthy after missing the 2019 season. If healthy, he is big time for DI as he possesses 4.45/40 speed and is a big time hitter.”
Bio: After tearing his ACL last season, Jason Cooper is hoping that his senior year ends on a much higher note than when his junior year ended. Because of limited game film on him, Cooper has received no offers as of yet.
“I don’t have any top schools as of right now. I am looking for somewhere I can have a very productive college career,” Cooper said.
When not playing football, the West Monroe safety can be seen participating in the school’s track and field team.
FS Brayden Hermes
Lee’s Scouting Report: “Brayden Hermes will be a rare three year starter for the school in 2020. Brayden has the aggressive IQ you need to be great in DI ball and runs a legit 4.6/40 who looks even faster on the field. He is built to play safety and covers ground, which you also need. Hermes is versatile as he kicks for the team, returns kickoffs and starts at safety.”
Bio: “Brayden Hermes did everything for the C.E. Byrd Yellow Jackets in 2019 as he had 39 tackles, a tackle for loss, one interception, three passes defended, and three blocked field goals on defense while also accounting for 41 all-purpose yards as a returner, seven touchbacks on kickoffs, averaging 45 yards on kickoffs, while also converting on 3/3 on PATs, and 2/4 on field goal attempts as a kicker. If that was not enough, he also even blocked three field goal attempts. Currently, his top school is Louisiana Tech. Hermes is not only a versatile football player, but he is a versatile athlete also playing baseball and soccer. When not playing sports, Hermes can be seen playing guitar for his church youth group band called Firm Foundation. He also enjoys learning different languages during his free time.
SS Georderrial Williams
Lee’s Scouting Report: “Green Oaks has so many great athletes in the 2021 class and it’s really hard to tell who is the fastest in a game. Georderrial Williams is another DI sleeper with 4.5/40 speed and is a really good hitter. He will play more of the OLB/SS spot for the team, but runs well enough to be a nickel corner or strong safety in college. He still has room to add more weight in college.”
Bio: Georderrial Williams is another talented skill position player for the Green Oaks Giants. In a talented secondary, Williams was very instinctive, always being around the football with 60 tackles and six pass deflections last season. So far, he has received two offers from East Texas Baptist and Graceland University.
“I am looking for a team that’s like a family and works hard everyday,”
During the offseason, Williams tries to improve on his 4.5/40 speed by playing basketball and running track. He also likes to workout and spend time with family.
SS Jordan Williams
Lee’s Scouting Report: “This is a kid I had to put on this list based on being a dominant player and having big time skills despite not being the biggest or fastest for his position, but has the “It” factor that you are looking for. He can hand time a 4.65/40, but he looks like he can run a 4.4/40 on the field. The question is where do you play him in college. I think he will make a great strong safety in college as the kid can take over a game at times with his ability to read and make incredible plays all over the field.”
Bio: Coming off a season in which Jordan Williams was all over the field making plays defensively for the Ruston Bearcats, he is looking to get some college attention. He personally likes Grambling, Southern, Louisiana Tech, and Prairie View A&M.
“When choosing a college, I would like to play and feel at home,” Williams said.
Last season, Williams found a home in opposing offenses’ backfields by accounting for 103 total tackles (60 solo tackles and 43 assists), two interceptions, and seven sacks. The season before, he was also a tackling machine by accounting for 82 tackles, two sacks, and an interception. The athletic Ruston linebacker also plays basketball for the school and has put impressive numbers in the weight room bench pressing 230 pounds, power cleaning 225 pounds, and squatting 350 pounds.
SS Jaquavis Richmond
Lee’s Scouting Report: “Jaquavis Richmond is a gifted big kid who can hit, runs a legit 4.55/40, is super long, and lean for his size already. This kid is going into the 2020 season with a chance to sign with many DI programs.”
Bio: At 6-1, 205 pounds, Jaquavis Richmond was the most versatile player on the Woodlawn Knights defense as he can be used as a pass rusher, a run stopper, or could drop back in coverage. In the weight room, Richmond can bench press 315 pounds, and can power clean 255 pounds. When not playing football, Richmond enjoys playing baseball, running track, and playing golf. As of now, he has yet to receive a college scholarship, but is open for any offers to come his way.
SS Ean Burch
Loyola College Prep
Lee’s Scouting Report: “Ean Burch has a nose for the football. He is on this list because of his toughness and that he is one of the best tacklers in all of the Shreveport/Bossier area with 4.65/40 speed.”
Bio: Last season, Ean Burch led the team in tackles with 116 in 2019. Burch also had three sacks, one interception, and one blocked punt as well. In the weight room, Burch can bench press 165 pounds, squat 270 pounds, and power clean 215 pounds. As of now, he has no top schools that he is looking at, but he does know what he is looking for.
“I am looking for a fun place where I can get a good education,” Burch said.
When not playing football, the Loyola College Prep defender is playing basketball for his school.
SS Kareem Moore
Lee’s Scouting Report: “I saw Kareem Moore on tape play a full game, and he’s a big time hitter that has a high IQ of the game. This kid is also very intense with 4.5/40 speed. He loves his game and the kid plays it full throttle.”
Bio: In 2019, Kareem Moore had 47 tackles and eight passes defended. On special teams, he had one kickoff return for 25 yards. The Neville defensive back is versatile as he has moved from cornerback to free safety for the 2020 season. He also has track speed participating in track and field events. In the weight room, he can bench 235 pounds and squat 385 pounds. At the moment, he has no top schools, but does enjoy watching the LSU Tigers play.
“I’m looking for a full ride and a great environment,” Moore said.
P Peyton Todd
Lee’s Scouting Report: “How many punters do you know also start in Class 5A at LB and run a 4.7/40? Well, Peyton Todd can do just that. Peyton is the best punter I have seen in high school since Donnie Jones (Catholic High School/LSU/NFL). The kid has DI hang time and distance. The ball comes off his leg like out of a ball machine.”
Bio: The stats back it up for Peyton Todd, who is arguably the best punter in the entire country for the Class of 2021. The talented West Monroe linebacker and punter averaged 46 yards per punt with a 4.41 second hang time. His longest punt was 57 yards and his longest hang time was 5.22 seconds. Unfortunately, Todd won’t be able to improve those numbers his senior season after suffering a season ending torn ACL injury. Todd is looking to continue the tradition of great LSU punters as he has committed to the Bayou Bengals.
