Tulane has gotten a good start on the football recruiting trail for 2018 and the Green Wave staff is hoping to add quality commitments soon.

Katerian Legrone, a 6-foot-3, 230 pound hybrid receiver/tight end from Atlanta, is a 3 star talent.  South Carolina, UCF, Tulane, Appalachian State, UAB and Syracuse are making their case.

Trae Hall (6-2, 180) out of Henderson, Texas is an excellent dual threat quarterback who will line up on defensive side of the ball as well.  It looks to be a ULL-Tulane battle. He had 2,016 yards passing with 24 touchdowns and 749 yards rushing with 6 scores in 2016.

Running back Jarveon Howard (5-10, 202, 4.5 speed) from Columbus, Miss. is a 3 star prospect attracting offers from Tulane, Mississippi State, Southern Miss and Ole Miss. Tennessee may be making a late push.

Jarvis Ware (5-11, 170), a 3 star Apopka, Fla . cornerback, has Tulane, USF, UMass and Oregon as his suitors.

Strong safety DaRyan Williams (5-11, 200) from Nacogdoches High in Texas possesses 4.47 speed. His school has produced quite a few college defensive back signees the past few seasons.  Tulane and Texas State are making the strongest cases for Ware.

Meanwhile, three Louisiana prospects who have garnered attention from many D1 programs lately:

Denham Springs  RB Tyre Golmond (5-7, 168; 4.5)

Explosive with a 38″ vertical, he has good vision. Golmond jump cuts and provides a home run threat. Arizona State, Arkansas State, SLU, ULL, McNeese, Memphis and Southern Miss are all in picture.

Opelousas DE Marlon Young (6-1, 245)

The super edge rusher bends the corner well and has 4.7 speed.  Very intense, Young beats double teams with talent and desire. Georgia State, Idaho, Towson State, Northwestern State, Nicholls, Jackson State, Southern and Tennessee State have noticed.

Parkway safety/WR Israel Mukuamu (6-4, 190)

A fast rising talent, he has offers from LSU, Louisville, Oklahoma State, South Carolina, Ole Miss, Georgia, Florida, Tulane, Wake Forest and South Florida. Mukuamu comes up with the big hit from his safety spot and closes quickly in coverage. He is good open field tackler and seems destined for duty on defense in college.
