Pettis Talks Cajuns Visit

Pettis Talks Cajuns Visit

After committing to Coach Hudspeth in December, Oxford High TE Larry Pettis Jr. made his first trip down to Louisiana on an official visit to the UL campus. The Cajun Redzone talked to Pettis about his official visit this weekend.

Once Larry Pettis arrived on campus at the University of Louisiana, he knew that he had made the right decision in committing to the Cajuns.

"Once we arrived in town, I was surprised about the size of the campus," Larry stated. "I was thinking ULL was kind of a small school, but the school is spread out and the football facilities were definitely nicer then I originally thought. I just felt much better about my decision to commit once I came in on the visit."

While Larry was down on his visit, Ladarius Green was his player host.

"Ladarius is a real humble guy," said Pettis. "We really didn't talk much about football as much as we did about the school and campus life. He introduced me to some of the other guys and they were all pretty cool. They all just want to win and are very excited about the new staff."

Larry Pettis had the opportunity to sit down with position coach Reed Stringer and talk about the Cajun offense.

"I had my meeting with Coach Stringer and he told me what to expect," Larry stated. "They are going to play in the spread formation a lot and go no huddle. They want to play fast pace and that's how everything is going to be conducted in the off-season."

Pettis was also excited to hear that he will be able to wear his high school number next season.

"Coach Hudspeth told me I can have my high school number 10," said Pettis. "So I took my picture in the red Cajun jersey with the #10 before we left Sunday. The whole thing was pretty cool and I'm excited about getting down there after graduation to get to work." Recommended Stories
