"I really want to play at UL, said Ratliff." "I will have all my transcripts and test scores together with me when I come in this weekend. If they offer me, I will commit this weekend."
With a few scholarships left to offer, the UL football staff is hoping the question of Ratliff's eligibility will be much clearer after this weekend. Ratliff may still have the opportunity to grey-shirt if he does not receive clearance from the Clearing House.
