D.J. Cloyd from Columbia, Miss. became the sixth overall pledge for Tulane’s 2023 class Tuesday.

He is the third commitment for the Green Wave within the past five days.

The 6-2, 190-pound Cloyd received his Tulane offer on March 31. He also considered offers from ULM, Alcorn and South Alabama. Southern Miss has been closely monitoring.

Cloyd is viewed as an athlete with capabilities of lining up at wide receiver or safety.

As a receiver, he displays solid hands, extends his arms and catches away from his body. However, it appears more likely that his future could be in the secondary. Cloyd is a sure tackler who recognizes the flow of a play immediately following the snap of the ball and delivers big hits in the open field.
