Dunbar Calls Cajuns Home

Dunbar Calls Cajuns Home

Former LSU and Minnesota Viking defensive lineman Karl Dunbar is a familiar name in South Louisiana. Dunbar's son, Karmichael Dunbar traveled down to Louisiana Friday night and decided to call Louisiana's Ragin'Cajuns home for the next four years. See what the Cajun's newest commitment had to say about his visit and commitment to UL "inside" the Cajun Redzone.

Dunbar, a "6-3", 290-pound defensive lineman, recently picked up offers from Arkansas State, Memphis and the new staff at Tulane. But on his official visit to UL this weekend, he decided he found home in Lafayette as a Ragin'Cajun.

"I grew up following LSU and UL," Dunbar stated. "I would be happy playing for Louisiana State or Louisiana; once in Lafayette, UL just felt like home. My dad and I talked to Coach Edwards for a while and he said I had a chance to come in and help them early on the defensive line. When I was ready to commit, we met with Coach Hudspeth and he was so excited about the news he walked around telling everyone I was committing to the program."

With his commitment to UL and the close proximity of his family, Lafayette was the perfect fit for Karmichael Dunbar.

"That's a bonus for me, I have family that lives in Opelousas and now they can come watch me play football for the next four years," Karmichael mentioned. "It will be great to see them and have them right up the road from Lafayette when I want to visit them."

Karmichael's host was Cajun outside linebacker Le'Marucs Gibson and he spoke about the time their time together while on visit.

"Le'Marcus Gibson was my host and we got along well," Dunbar stated. "We met with some of the other players in the program and I just felt right at home. They talked about the bowl game and where they are going as a program, and I just felt like I fit in here at UL."

Karmichael had the chance to watch the Cajuns in the New Orleans Bowl and was happy for the program.

"Yea, I watched the bowl game and they were in control of that game for the most part," said Karmicheal. "They allowed the other team to get back into the game and get ahead, but those guys came back to win it at the end. It was exciting to see them celebrate after the game and I want to be part of that in the future."
