The Cajun football staff hosted a number of skilled athletes this weekend. A large number of the prospects that attended the game play defensive back, wide receiver and running back. Listed below are the athletes that signed in early, several that attended may be missing from the list:
DB Blake Lopez 6-0, 190 New Iberia High
DB Trevor Sansone 5-9, 170 Central High, Baton Rouge
DB Michael Hunter 6-1, 175 West Monroe, Monroe

Two of the higher profile athletes on this list are DB Michael Hunter and WR Tyler Cain from the 5A power house program West Monroe. Hunter is holding offers from Baylor
and interest from Texas A&M
and Mississippi State
Tyler Cain is holding offers from Louisiana Tech
, ULM and Tulane
WR's Denzeil Warner from Redemptorist and Alvin Stewart of McKinley High are both very good athletes that have attended a number of camps this summer, but programs have held off on offering until current ACT scores become available.
Two safety prospects that Cajun fans might want to keep an eye on are Lamar Johnson of Miss. Gulf Coast CC and Carlos Brown of Houston Yates. Johnson committed to the Cajuns before the Western Kentucky
game and will sign in November. I will have more on his commitment Monday night. But he and his mother spoke with me a few minutes before walking into the stadium.
"This is where I wanted to play ball," Johnson stated. "The coaches talked about the opportunity to play next season and get my education. My mother wanted me to make sure that I commit to a program that will work with me to get my degree and make sure I graduate on time."
Johnson's mother mentioned Dr. Zappi of UL's Engineering Department as a major influence on her support for Lamar committing to Louisiana.
Carlos Brown is a solid prospect that has a few Texas programs taking interest in him.
The Cajun Redzone will have more on this weekends visit later this week.
