Fleeton Commits to Louisiana

Daphne HS (AL) QB T.J. Fleeton (6'3,215) gave his verbal pledge to Louisiana's Ragin' Cajuns Saturday afternoon. Fleeton attended UL's Senior prospect camp in June and impressed the Ragin' Cajun staff with his arm. Fleeton wasted little time in committing to UL after he received an offer.

Daphne High's recent history of producing college quarterbacks is well documented. West Virginia grabbed Pat White and Arkansas State signed Chris Lambeth out of the Alabama high school. T.J. Fleeton is the latest Trojan quarterback to head to college football. The senior to be threw for over 1,555 yards, on 98 completions, for 11 touchdowns and 3 interceptions last season in an offense that featured four-star running back T.J. Yeldon that signed with Alabama. Fleeton spoke to the Cajun Redzone today about his early commitment to Louisiana's Ragin' Cajuns.

"I liked the program, the offense fits my style of play and we made a family decision that UL was the best fit for me right now," Fleeton stated. "I like Coach Rodrigue and Coach Johnson; he is a good quarterback coach and offensive coordinator. They showed me that they wanted me more now when they offered then some of the other schools. And I really liked the facilities and campus when I was down there for their camp in June."

T.J. Fleeton stated that he had interest from South Florida after attending their camp, Florida International and Vanderbilt recently, but it was the Ragin' Cajuns and Coach Rodrigue that made the first offer.

"Clearly that was big with me that they were the first to offer," said TJ. "Coach Johnson told me that he really liked me to be part of the program after the camp and we talked about the offense they run. When I called Coach Hudspeth to tell him I was committing, he was really excited about me committing to the Cajun program."

Coach Rodrigue isn't new to the talent at Daphne High; he recruited 2012 signee Jeremy Sparks from the Trojan program. Did Sparks help in Fleeton make his decision?

"Jeremy told me some good things about the ULL program," Fleeton stated. "He answered some questions for me, but it really came down to me and my family feeling comfortable with what they have to offer as a football program and education. I will be coming back for their camp on July 22nd and work out more for Coach Johnson."
