The Tulane Green Wave added the third pledge for their 2021 football recruiting class Wednesday.

Carencro cornerback Bailey “Slim” Despanie considered offers from FAU, ULL, La. Tech, McNeese, Prairie View and South Alabama before making his commitment to the Green Wave.

The 6-foot, 160-pound Despanie also doubles as a guard on the Carencro basketball team, usually drawing the assignment of keeping the opponent’s best player in check.

Despanie runs a 4.5 forty and is a vicious hitter for his size. He reacts quickly and comes up to drive to the ball from his secondary spot. Despaine shows good ball skills with excellent anticipation.
