    Can't remember his name but this happened to a kid from loreauville I believe around 99' 00' when they had an all star game at tiger stadium...blew out his knee and got his offer pulled.

    Same with Griffen Hebert from STM.

    Impressive coaches on the Lafayette team. Big Cheese making an appearance.

    Any word if UL is after the Johnson kid from Kaplan? Saw he made first team all district on offense and first team district on defense all with defensive mvp...He is about 195# so i think he may be worth looking at as a safety prospect?

    Correct on the injury but not the rest. Dinardo honored his scholarship, as did Saban. He was simply stuck in a coaching change. Recruited by Dinardo and that old school Big 10 defense, then he just didn't fit Sabans system. Saban also converted him to FB due to injuries one year but didn't get much playing time.

    While I've knock UL for kids like Dugas and Bonnette, can anyone name one STM athlete in recent years outside of the DB that signed with Neveda, that is starting for an FBS program?

    Matt Gardner. He really wasn't the "backup " QB. They sort of had a 2 QB system. Bellamy was the gun slinger and Gardner was the "read-option/scrambling " QB. Both were very effective.

    Logan is at Kansas, Kahee could be starting at FBS (but he was too smart for UL so he chose Dartmouth), Besh is at Princeton, Raborn was at Bama, Bellamy will be at Villanova next yr.

    Again, Logan isn't staring at Kansas Raborn walked on at Bama. Smart or not, they are not starters at FBS programs. Not saying any of these kids will not have successful careers, simply stating fact. There is only one FBS prospect at STM in the senior class, Hebert.

    Logan is starting. I agree with Hebert being great. But i find it funny how UL can't find the time of day for this kid.
    What does it matter if a kid is in FBS or dominating in FCS?

    Logan is a long snapper, he wasn't shown signing in any class which means he was a walk-on. Long snappers are walk-ons that usually earn scholarships. UL has a walk-on Long Snapper in Miller from Teurlings, so they took a local kid. I like local athletes, but ones that are making impacts at programs like Dugas and Bonnette. Now there is several young athletes at STM next year that should get looks, like Gannon.

    I think Hebert although not as athletic as Meeking is a polished WR who IS athletic and talented enough to play for us. He may need a redshirt year to adjust to college defenses, but he does things that help create separation that indont see from some of our current WRs and they are extremely talented.

    Bottom line IMO is the kid may not be a super star prospect, but he can and would contribute for 3 years.

    Sounds like FCS to me. Answer the question.

    Sometimes recruiting is a numbers game and positions of need. It probably doesn't help that hebert plays a position full of freshman and sophomores that is losing no one that contributed in a big way. .
