    With the success this season, are we having any success on the recruiting trail? do we have nice recruits committed already for next season?

    Found it

    Louisiana Ragin' Cajuns men's basketball coach Bob Marlin announced on Wednesday the signing of two players to a National Letter of Intent for the 2018-19 season.

    Signing with the Ragin' Cajuns is guard Trajan Wesley (Houston, Texas/Cy Falls HS) and forward Kristian Lafayette (Detroit, Mich./TaylorMade Academy). The signing of the duo increased Louisiana's signing class to four, joining previous signees R.J. Gladney (DeRidder, La./DeRidder HS) and Kobe Julien (Baton Rouge, La./Madison Prep).

    Wesley, a 5-foot-10 point guard, was a first-team all-district and first-team Class 6A All-State selection as a junior at Cy Falls High School. He averaged 11.0 points, 3.2 rebounds, 4.6 assists and 2.0 steals as a junior, helping Cy Falls to the Region 3 District 17 championship and 2017 Class 6A UIL Texas state title.

    Playing for a team that finished 17th in the country by Max Preps, Wesley scored 15 of his game-high 20 points in the fourth quarter in the Eagles' 63-57 win over San Antonio Wagner in the Class 6A title game.

    "Trajan is a true, up-tempo guard with great leadership qualities," Marlin said. "He has really good vision and prides himself on both ends of the floor. Trajan comes from a winning background at a Class 6A state championship program under head coach Richard Flores, and his toughness and winning mentality will be infectious to our team. We are excited to add Trajan to our program."

    Lafayette, a 6-10 forward, attended Hazel Park (Mich.) High School before enrolling at TaylorMade (Fla.) Academy, where he is averaging 15.0 points, 5.0 rebounds, 2.0 assists and 1.0 blocks per game. As a senior, Lafayette helped HPHS to its first district title in over 50 years and a berth in the MHSAA Boy's Class B state playoffs.

    "Kristian is a very skilled player who can shoot, pass and handle the ball exceptionally well for someone his size," Marlin said. "As he adds weight and increases his strength, he will develop into a player in this league who can impact the game on both ends of the court."

    LOUISIANA RAGIN' CAJUNS MEN'S BASKETBALL SIGNING CLASS
    R.J. Gladney, F - 6-7, 200, DeRidder, La. (DeRidder HS)
    Kobe Julien, G/F - 6-6, 215, Baton Rouge, La. (Madison Prep Academy)
    Kristian Lafayette, F 6-10, 200, Detroit, Mich (Hazel Park HS/TaylorMade Academy)
    Trajan Wesley, G 5-10, 165, Houston, Texas (Cy Falls HS)

    I am pretty sure that Wayne Julien and Dion Brown know each other. Julien finished his career a year or two prior to Brown starting his. We have one scholarship remaining for the spring signing period. Obviously we would love to get Brown but if we do not then I am confident we will still sign a quality player. We have 5 seniors and we signed 4 players in the fall. All 5 seniors are on scholarship with Jacob Broussard getting one for the spring semester.

    This is a first... "While Louisville-Lafayette hasn't had the recent success of the other schools, it is the alma father of his father, Dion, who played for the Ragin' Cajuns from 1980-1984 and is in the school's athletics hall of fame."

    Thank you USA Today.

    "Brown's list of schools are down to California, Gonzaga, Louisville-Lafayette, Nevada, St. John's and UCLA. He said he may not wait until signing day to announce his choice."

    At least they corrected it to Louisiana instead of Louisville but what's an alma father? That's a new one to me.
