Louisiana's Ragin'Cajuns football will team will host several 2010 signees on their official visits…
Spikes Gives Cajuns Verbal
Spikes told the Cajun Redzone last Monday night that he was coming in on a visit, but decided to visit Utah at the last minute. Aaron spoke to the Cajun Redzone tonight about his commitment and his late decision.
"I decided to visit Utah at the last minute, but after taking the trip out there and listening to the staff, I called UL and wanted to commit," stated Spikes. "They really just kept giving me the run around and I figured it was not the place for me in the long run. The coaches at UL had given me a good offer and I felt it was the right thing to do and call them to explain myself and see if they would still offer me."
Spikes is a member of the DFW Top 100 prospects, rushing for over 1,300 yards this past season after missing a game because of an injury. He committed to Texas Tech early in March last year, but all that changed once Coach Leach was terminated.
"Once Coach (Lincoln) Riley and (Clay) McGuire were not there, I mean I didn't know where I see myself because I know those guys too well to go to a new coaching staff where I'll have to go over everything again and learn a new offense," Aaron said. "I didn't feel comfortable with the new staff and decided I would de-commit and move on."
Aaron Spikes was one of the Dallas area's top 4A rushers in 2007, finishing his sophomore year with 1,281 yards, on 169 attempts, avg. 7.1 yards per carry and 10 TD's. Spikes was the area's fifth-leading rusher in Class 4A in 2008, finishing the season with 1,526 yards and 16 touchdowns in only eight games. He averaged nine yards per carry. Aaron has been named First Team 11-4A All-District all three seasons at Pinkston High.
Now that Spikes has made his decision, what are his plans once he officially joins the Louisiana football program?
"I'm just happy to get this over with," stated Spikes. "My parents are happy with my decision and we will take my official visit down to Lafayette in the next week or two. My plans are to go down there, work hard and prove myself to the staff. I know about the records that Tyrell Fenroy has set and I'm going to set my personal goals to break his record numbers if I can stay healthy."
Aaron Spikes is also rated #66 RB by ESPN Scouting and #77 by Rivals Recruiting services. Spikes spoke to the Cajun Redzone at 8pm tonight and stated that he was giving us the first interview to announce his commitment to Louisiana's Ragin'Cajuns.
