Pettis Gives Cajuns Commitment
"I called Coach Hudspeth this morning and told him I was committing," Larry stated. "We were both pretty excited about it and he told me that I was their number one guy on the board. He told me that he would come up and visit with me after the dead period."
The "6-4", 240-pound Pettis was named First Team All-State TE after completing his senior season with 34 receptions, for 434 yards and 5 TDs. On the defensive side of the ball, he had over 82 tackles, 6 sacks and 4 FF at the OLB/DE position.
Tight end is the position that Larry Pettis will play for the Ragin'Cajuns and Coach Hudspeth has promised to give him the opportunity to contribute as a true freshman.
"Coach Hudspeth told me that I will come in behind All-American Ladarius Green and learn from him," said Pettis. "He said I could learn a lot working behind him and that we would talk more specifically about the offense when I come in January."
The Cajuns are still talking to teammate DeShaun McNeal about a scholarship opportunity.
Larry Pettis has scored a 17 on the ACT and maintains a 2.5 GPA in his core. He plans on taking the ACT one more time in January after going through a prep course.
