    The problem with the remaining talent left in the state is graded. I'm sure the higher rated recruits are still in the board because they may not qualify.

    Any chance this qb (wilkins) from ASU transfers here? Graduated and could play immediately

    That would be tough for JD. Doubt he would stay. Kid's been here 4 years. Probably has equal or better skills than Wilkins, but lacks in experience.

    No where near equal or better skills to Wilkins.

    There is no way he is better than Wilkins and I doubt he is even equal to him. Wilkins was a 4 star athlete out of HS with offers from Arizona State, Arizona, Colorado State, Utah State and Wyoming. Jordan was a 3 Star athlete out of HS with offers from UL and La Tech. Wilkins had interest from such schools as Michigan, Nebraska, Oklahoma, Oregon, Oregon State, Utah and Washington. Davis had interest from outside of La Tech and UL with North Texas.

    I like Jordan Davis and I think he is the best QB on our roster right now, but personally Wilkins would be a huge upgrade at that position if he came to UL. Look at his stats from ASU:

    432 - 681 29 TD's and 14 INT's, last year was even better as he was
    236 - 370 17 TD's and only 5 INT's.

    He was considered the Number 13 ranked dual threat qb in the country by ESPN and the Number 14 qb in the nation by Scout. Rivals had him as the #20 qb in the country. So between all of these scouting services he was ranked in the Top 20 qb's in the country his senior year in HS.

    Yeah, I was fortunate to meet Manny and Mike Norvel at the team hotel in Houston when they played Texas A&M back in 2015. Co-workers son was the wide out. Nothing but compliments for Manny. First class kid. Would love for him to become a Cajun.

    I would still like J. Davis to finally have one last shot at winning the QB job. He has waited patiently and been jerked around by an offensively inept head coach. I would love to see what the new coach can do with him.

    Jordan has a coach now who knows a bit about quarterbacking. Wouldn't be shocked if he excelled at the position next year.

    Your opinion, we all have one.

    It was pretty easy to see the impact Coach Hall had on JD in just one year. If JD had received good coaching over the past 4 years, we may not be having this discussion. He has skills, what he doesn't have is experience and proper development over the past 4 years. He may lack other intangibles, that Wilkins has exhibited, but he doesn't lack physical skills.

    JD was Ok and can have a nice senior year. He just needs to mature. I don't think the previous staff liked his maturing or ability to lead. I'm hoping he finds it in his last year because I do think he's the most battle tested and capable QB to run a spread offense right now. However, I'm not against getting a transfer that the staff may be familiar with and bringing in someone who is better.

    5-6 5* in Louisiana? I think you are being a bit generous. I'd say 2-4 is more the norm.

    Not that ratings are always right. OBJ, Honey Badger.... both 4 star. Clearly 5* talents.

    I overstated the 5 stars however The 4 star ranking were extremely low this year

    Wilkins or Jordan will have a bevy of talented young, big, fast receivers coming back in 2018 to throw to!

    I really think the fanbase is underestimating the potential for success in 2018. Gerald Broussard's right. Absolutely no reason this team shouldn't be 8-4 at least.
