La. Tech’s loss was Tulane gain Saturday on the recruiting trail.

St. Charles Catholic lineman Mason Narcisse backed away from his commitment to Tech and pledged to Willie Fritz and the Green Wave. The 6-3, 300 pounder was 2018 All State as well as the district Defensive MVP as a junior.

Narcisse, a 3 star rated prospect, holds offers from Tulane, Colorado, Colorado State, Memphis, Nicholls, FIU, ULM, ULL, UCF, South Alabama, UAB, Lamar and Northwestern State. He has great upside and his best maybe yet to come.

“I would put him against any 4 or 5 star prospect,” said St. Charles Catholic head coach Frank Monica. “He’s got mobility, has been working hard and is fully qualified academically. He’s one of those players who is easy to coach and will get bigger and stronger. He’s only 17 years old.”

Narcisse lines up on defense for Monica’s Comets but could flip sides of the line in college. “He runs well for his size. He likes to pass rush and does well at it,” added Monica. “He brings a lot to the table an is a good kid. He’s got strong hands.”

Strength is a characteristic which jumps out at you from the talented prospect, who bench presses 335 pounds and squats 500. Narcisse also has thrown the shot put 46 feet.
