BATON ROUGE, La. -- One thing you can say about the track performances of Louisiana's top prospects in football this season is: Well, they had good football seasons. The Louisiana state high school track and field meet at LSU's Bernie Moore Stadium wasn't kind to many of the state's top football players, who struggled with either injuries or "off" weekends.
BATON ROUGE, La. -- How deep is the football talent in Louisiana? Consider this: Every football bowl subdivision (FBS) conference in the nation has had a least two Louisiana players sign letters of intent with its member schools for the 2013 recruiting cycle, according to the ESPN database of recruits.
2013 cornerback Richard Allen (River Ridge, La./John Curtis), a 4.0 student, has committed to play for the Tulane Green Wave, according to the Times-Picayune. Offensive lineman Brandon Godfrey, Allen's high school teammate, is also on board with Tulane.
