Cajuns Land Taboris Lee

Cajuns Land Taboris Lee

Ackerman HS, Miss DT Taboris Lee (6'2,277) gave the Ragin' Cajuns his verbal pledge Friday afternoon. Go inside the Cajun Redzone to get the rest of the story from Louisiana's latest commitment.

Ackerman High, Miss DT Taboris Lee is coming off a junior year which he was named Region 2-2A All Region Defensive Player of the Year and Class 2A All-State honors. Lee finished the season 64 Tackles (52 solo), 2 fumble recoveries and a sack playing on the interior Indians defensive line. He traveled down to the Louisiana Senior Prospect Camp in Lafayette in July 8th to work out for the UL coaching staff and would come away with an offer several days later.

"I attended the ULL camp in Lafayette and worked out for them," Lee stated. "Coach Stringer had asked me to come down to Lafayette and work out in the camp so that they could get a good look at me and I could take a look around the campus. I really liked the campus and the football facilities, and Coach Edwards the defensive line coach. They told me I did well in the camp and that they would get back to me in a few days. After a couple of days they called my coach and he asked me to call Coach Hudspeth. When I called Coach Hudspeth he told me they were offering me a scholarship and wanted to be part of the Ragin' Cajun family."

With one camp under belt and summer workouts going on at school, why did Taboris Lee make the decision to commit now?

"I just thought it was the best place for me right now," said Taboris. "I haven't been able to attend other camps, but I really like the direction of the program and the staff. It's not too far from home so my family can travel to watch me play college football. They have a good staff and it's just the right fit for me. My parents are happy with my decision and now I'm just going to focus on my senior season."

Lee had interest from several state schools including Southern Miss, but he held no other offers at this time.
