Tech isn't recruiting against UL-Monroe
Louisiana Tech football fans reading the spin some UL-Monroe commitments/signees are putting on their offers might be getting a little worried that the mighty Warhawks are beating them on recruits.
A case in point is Canton (Texas) High School's Keavon Milton, an offensive lineman, tight end and defensive end during his prep career. A recent story in the Monroe News Star indicated that Milton had chosen ULM over Tech. Similar indications were made by some of the JUCO players that the Warhawks recently inked.
But Bulldog fans needn't worry.
We have it on good authority that Tech didn't offer ANY of the JUCO players signed by Charlie Weatherbie and they didn't offer Milton. Tech coach Derek Dooley said he doesn't even know some of the players who say they picked so-and-so over his school.
Dooley and his staff aren't worried about beating Sun Belt schools for athletes. That's an easy enough job. They're worried about holding onto recruits getting attention from CUSA and SEC schools.
