Desoto Central(Southaven, MS) HS DB Ricky Tappan has hit the camp circuit with a passion this summer…
Tappan Getting Much Respect
A big reason for the Jaguars turn around has been the play of their Defense. Tappan has gained a reputation as a shutdown corner and teams are not willing to test him much.
"We are off to a 3-0 start. Thats such a big improvement from last year. We have beaten Lewisburg, Potts Camp, and last week we beat Lake Cormorant. That was a bigtime win for us and our confidence. Our defense is really playing well. I have some tackles, but teams are not throwing the ball my way anymore. I guess thats a good thing."
Recruiting has been pretty steady for Tappan. He is hearing from the same schools with one exception.
"I am still hearing from UL, Arkansas State, UT-Martin, and now Alabama State is on me pretty good. Its been steady and the same. I am just blessed that teams are looking at me."
Concerning the Cajuns, they have had a steady lead for Tappan for quite a while now. An offer would be huge for Tappan, but right now he is focused in another area.
"I call and talk to Coach Hud at least once a week. He keeps telling me he wants to see me down in Lafayette. I plan on going down their for a game. My dad has figured all that out, and I hope thats when I get my offer. But right now I am totally devoted to my team and getting us into the playoffs. Thats my main focus right now."
