Former Thibodaux HS (La) MLB Trey Granier (6’2, 230) has made a decision to enroll and play college football for Louisiana Ragin’ Cajuns. Grainer was Scout.coms #22 Ranked MLB in the country in the 2012 Class. Go inside the Cajun Redzone for the rest of the story!

Trey Grainer signed with LSU in February of 2012 as one of the top rated MLB prospects in the country. Scout.com had the Thibodaux graduate ranked #22 nationally in its rankings at season’s end. The (6’2,230) athlete had 56 tackles- 36 solos and 20 assists, and returned an interception and a fumble before injury his spraining his MCL in practice late September of 2011. Grainer redshirted his freshman season at LSU in 2012, but found himself in a situation that was no longer the best for him as a student athlete and decided to look for a college football program to transfer to this fall. The south Louisiana native spoke to the Cajun Redzone today about his decision to transfer to Louisiana.

“I have family there in Lafayette that plays for UL,” Trey stated. “James Butler and Elijah McGuire are my cousins and had a lot of good things to say about the program. We speak to each other all the time and I watched them win two consecutive bowl games in New Orleans the past few years.And they wanted me to come check UL out.”

Trey Granier and his family traveled to Lafayette Wednesday to visit with Coach Hudspeth and the staff, and came away impressed with the excitement around the program.

“Coach Hudspeth told us about the things going on with the facilities and he just had a lot to do with convincing me to come play for the Cajuns,” Granier said. “He is a very good coach and the way he runs the program and the intensity he has during practice, you understand why he and his staff have been successful. Coach Willis also impressed me and we talked about playing in his defense, together they sold me on playing my college football at UL.”

Granier finished high school with a 3.75 GPA and has taken care of business in the classroom while at LSU.

“I have 51 hours towards my degree right now,” Trey mentioned. “I plan on graduating before I finish my eligibility in college. I want to attain my degree first and that has been my plan since I enrolled in college. Completing my degree is the most important thing to me and then comes football.”

One thing is for sure, Coach Hudspeth and his staff continue to add talent to a program on the rise and Cajun fans will be looking forward to watching Trey Granier hit the field next spring.
