Louisiana QB lands two more offers

There is a lot of potential in New Orleans (La.) Edna Karr quarterback Munchie Legaux. The 6-foot-4 prospect has a great frame, a strong arm and unique athleticism. His upside is through the roof and colleges are beginning to take notice.

Legaux picked up an early offer from the local program of Tulane and has recently garnered two more scholarship offers to add to what should be a quickly growing list.

"I have two more offers," Legaux said. "They're from Louisiana Tech and Michigan. I got them last Wednesday. I was surprised. Michigan, I had talked to them about two times and I hadn't heard anything from Louisiana Tech."

Legaux is particularly interested in the Michigan offer and sees a god fit with the offensive system that Rich Rodriguez institutes.

"That's the kind of offense we run at my high school," he said of the Michigan system. "I would feel comfortable in that offense."

With his size and arm, Legaux could be viewed as a pro-style quarterback but he also has very good athleticism so he sees himself as a dual-threat player.

"I'm dual-threat because I can run and I can throw," he said. "I like to do both. Any program that I feel comfortable in I'm willing to do both."

Along with his three offers, Legaux has been receiving attention from some other major programs around the region.

"I've been hearing from LSU and Alabama and Virginia called me today actually," he said. "I'm hoping that [LSU and Alabama] offer me. I'm a big Gator fan. I'm hoping I get a call from the Gators soon."

This offseason, Legaux has continued to work hard on his game. He made the All-Combine team at the Mobile Nike Combine. This weekend he is going to Miami to attend the Football University Camp. He will be attending an Elite 11 regional camp in California. He also has had a chance to attend junior days at Alabama and LSU.

Despite his success as a junior, Legaux knows that he can improve.

"I played ok (last season)," he said. "I can do much better. I have a lot of room to improve. I can improve on my footwork."
