Tech's recruiting class shaping up

Louisiana Tech football coach Derek Dooley is shaping up with a second highly regarded recruiting class, based on current commitments.

Dooley has already signed 3-star defensive end Kwame Jordan, who recorded 18 sacks in the JUCO ranks. He also has a commitment from another 3-star defensive end in Eric Harper of Marrero and a 3-star quarterback in Bret Jefcoat from Mississippi, who is being recruited by Ole Miss.

It appears that the Bulldogs will sign just one area player in Homer athlete Richie Casey.

But what will make this class the second best class in the state is the five players enrolled at Tech but sitting out this season. They include Evangel's Zach Schreiber (Alabama), Steve Ensminger (Auburn), Rolando Melancon (Tennessee) and Jonathan Zeno (Southeastern). Highly recruited wide receiver Gabriel Bryant will also be in the class.

If the verbals from 12 prepsters hold true, Dooley's second class should be something to write home to Georgia about.
