Cajuns Hot List: White and Hooks

Louisiana's Ragin'Cajuns have two Florida athletes at the top of their board.

As the 2010 football season passes the midway point, Louisiana's Ragin'Cajuns have two outstanding athletes from Florida at the top of prospect board in Pensacola Catholic quarterback Shaun White and running back Telvin Hooks of New Smyrna Beach.

The "6-0", 208 pound White has now passed for over 1,427 yards, 12 touchdowns and another 5 touchdowns on the ground after missing two weeks of the season with an injured ankle. Shaun White is currently the #1 quarterback on the Cajuns board, but the Pensacola senior is holding offers from FIU, Memphis, Middle Tennessee, Southern Miss and UAB. White has not yet scheduled an official visit to Louisiana, but the Cajuns have remained in contact with him.

The "5-11", 205 pound Hooks is a back with legit 4.40 forty and possess ideal size to become a featured back at the college level. Hooks was stuck behind Four-Star RB Marlin Lane at Mainland high school, so he transferred to New Smyrna Beach to become the featured back. Hooks has had some huge games for New Smyrna Beach, including a recent game against top ranked Deland in which he 132 yards and three touchdowns. Hooks touchdowns came on runs of 59, 25, and 33 yards. The problem for the Cajuns now is that Hooks season has not gone unnoticed by some BCS schools, including Purdue and Cincinnati; with both programs offering scholarships recently. The Cajuns are working on an official visit.

The Cajun Redzone will have more on both athletes soon! Recommended Stories
