Tulane upped their pledge count to a dozen for the 2018 recruiting class while UL Lafayette and Louisiana Tech also added a commitment a piece.

The Green Wave received a commitment from defensive end Nik Hogan out of Flowood, Miss. He is the 12th pledge overall and seventh defender for the Wave for the 2018 class. Five Tulane commitments so far are defensive lineman.



Hogan fielded offers from Mississippi State, ULL, East Carolina, Southern Miss, Kentucky, Arkansas State, Louisiana Tech, UAB, UTSA and South Florida. The 3 star talent attended camps at Ole Miss, Memphis, Tennessee and Texas.

The 6-foot-5, 265 pounder has been recruited by some schools as a tight end, and he can run, block and play physical at point of attack.

On the other side of the ball, Hogan is disruptive as pass rusher with good get off on the snap. He will pursue the play.

The Ragin Cajuns added Eight Mile, Ala. wide receiver Collins Woods (6-3, 190) a rangy wide receiver target who considered offers from Tulane and Duke.



Woods recorded 46 grabs for 1,045 yards and 12 touchdowns in 2016. A good route runner, Woods finds openings in secondary and creates good separation from defenders.

Running back DeAndre Marcus (6-0, 205) will stay very close to home and play at Louisiana Tech.



The Ruston High product is a powerful runner with good balance, strong lower body and good vision. Marcus is a north-south runner who has also played linebacker.
