In constructing our watch list, some of the important factors we assess is how significantly each player’s production from last year will impact his team’s success this season, how much better each player has gotten from last year, or what type of college prospect he is (although those three factors often have a way of lining up).
1.) Terrebonne ATH Ja’Khi Douglas C/O 2020- Douglas’s body of work over the last three seasons as a starter speaks for itself. His speed & elusiveness separates him from everybody on this list. Hopefully we get to see him play his natural position this season, which is receiver with transfer quarterback Ryan Williams in the fold now. The *Florida St commit* will probably be the best player on the field more often than not this season. Douglas holds over 20 offers & is currently ranked #8 in the state for 2020.
2.) Central Lafourche RB Deon Jenkins C/O 2020 -Jenkins had an incredible junior year rushing for 1,742 yards & 17 touchdowns. His patience & vision in the hole is one of a kind. He is really shifty & has a great burst when he gets to the second level. He is definitely somebody who defensive coordinators will have to game plan for this season. Nicholls St & Southern are showing interest.
3.) Terrebonne DL Maason Smith C/O 2021 - Smith is on track to be one of biggest recruits to come through the Tri-Parish. The 6-foot-5, 290 pound prospect is very light on his feet & he moves exceptionally well for a kid of his stature. Even though he is still a work in progress, I think you see him take that next step of being dominant this season. Smith is currently ranked the #1 prospect in the state for 2021 & #4 at his position in the country. He holds offers from LSU, Texas A&M, Alabama, Florida, Miami, Oklahoma, & a host of others.
4.) Thibodaux WR Kyren Lacy C/O 2020 - Lacy is a very unique talent that people better get familiar with if you’re not already. The 6-foot-3, 210 pound prospect is very long & athletic which makes him a matchup nightmare. His best football is still ahead of him & I see him solidifying himself as one of the state’s best receivers before season’s end. Lacy is a 3-star prospect that is verbally committed to the University of Louisiana Ragin’ Cajuns & holds offers from Virginia, LA Tech, ULM, & Nicholls St. He has been picking up a lot of steam as of late from schools like Tennessee, Arkansas, Baylor, Colorado, Utah, Wake Forest, Houston & Tulane. Don’t be surprised if some of these programs pull the trigger on Lacy soon.
5.) South Lafourche OL Jhy Orgeron C/O 2020- Orgeron plays with good aggressiveness that you look for in a offensive lineman. He’s very strong with long enough arms that makes him play with good leverage, & he plays with an attitude. His versatility being able to play guard or center also adds to this kid’s value as well. He is committed to Southeastern University and is receiving a lot of interest from UL, Louisiana Tech, & Nicholls St.
6.) Terrebonne WR A.J Walter C/O 2020- Walter is a transfer from Natchitouches-Central that has shown since he arrived that he can make a big impact this season. He is very well put together with pretty good athleticism. He has a chance to be a household name this season. Walter is committed to Southern for baseball, but I think he’ll receive a lot of late offers before it’s all said & done.
7.) E.D White OL Bordelon C/O 2022- Bordelon is definitely an impressive prospect that played a lot last season as a freshman. He’s already 6-foot-5, 235 pounds & he looks like he’s not finished growing. Of course he has a ways to go, but he has the tools & talent to be a power five prospect when it’s all said & done. UL & Nicholls St. are showing interest early.
8.) Terrebonne ATH D’Jon Scott C/O 2020 - Scott had a pretty solid junior season where he played on both sides of the ball at safety & receiver. Scott looked terrific in the spring & throughout the summer which caused him to get a lot of attention from schools. He’s a ball hawking long & rangy safety that can run. Scott holds offers from ULM, McNeese St, Lamar, Southeastern, & Arkansas-Monticello. Also, UL, Louisiana Tech, & Nicholls St. are showing interest.
9.) H.L Bourgeois DL Jameian Buxton C/O 2023- Buxton is a special talent that will be the next big time prospect to come out of the Tri-Parish. His violent nature to go with his athleticism is already off the charts & has the Braves coaching staff excited to have him aboard the next four years. He has already done something that has never happened in the area before & that’s land three power five offers in the eighth grade from LSU, Miami, & Virginia. When you watch him this season you’ll definitely see why.
10.) Assumption DL Tra’Mond Williams C/O 2020 - Williams is coming off of a hell of a junior campaign where he finished the year with 14 sacks. He is relentless when it comes to getting to the quarterback & he has the best get off on this list. He will definitely be a problem this season and I would not be surprised if his sack total increases. At 6-foot-2, 205 pounds Williams will have to bulk some more at the next level, but he has the frame college coaches look for. He has zero offers, but Nicholls St. is showing interest.
11.) Thibodaux ATH Tyren Young C/O 2020- He is drawing interest from Lamar, Southeastern, Southern, & Arkansas Baptist.
12.) Vandebilt Catholic LB Chandler Rhodes C/O 2020- He is drawing interest from Nicholls St.
