National Signing Day - Local Signings

BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - With National Signing Day well underway, many eyes are on high school football players across Louisiana.

Parkview Baptist signees Josh Stansell to Henderson State and Houston Robert to Rice. (Yes, Houston going to Houston). 

Dutchtown safety Justin Reid, the brother of former LSU and current San Francisco 49ers safety Eric Reid, picked Stanford over LSU and Notre Dame. UHigh quarterback Manny Miles, son of LSU head coach Les Miles, said he is not signing with anyone Wednesday.

Louisiana College landed another player on the defensive side of the ball in Jaylen Williams from Tara. 

Defensive tackle Brandon Fontenot of Tara is headed to Nicholls State. He will be joined there by his teammate, tackle Al Wilson.

Episcopal's Spencer Kleinpeter signed with Cornell of the Ivy League. Offensive lineman Kody Holmes of Scotlandville is heading to Hutchinson Community College in Kansas. Nicholls State received two big hauls in Woodlawn's Charles Brooks and Ryan Williams.

It was a flip. Derrick Dillon, a 4-star athlete from Franklinton, who was leaning toward Florida, chose LSU instead.

East Feliciana linebacker Tyriece Flowers has chosen Louisiana College from East Feliciana. Ty'quincey Kilbourne, a fellow linebacker from East Feliciana, is headed to University of Arkansas-Pine Bluff. Riverside High defensive lineman Joe Anderson is headed to Ole Miss. Patterson wide receiver Daylon Charlot chose Alabama over LSU. Matthew Butler of St. Michael signed with Texas Southern.

Plaquemine quarterback D'Morea Wicks is off to the Air Force Academy. Plaquemine offensive lineman Jodeci Harris and four of his teammates are headed to Southern. 

Two West Feliciana High students signed commitment letters. Jazz Ferguson stays close at LSU and Ryan Reed heads to north Louisiana to attend Northwestern State.

Louisiana continues to produce great players, many staying home to play, but others looking outside of Louisiana to play football. LSU does a nice job of keeping high school football players in state, but a couple players will have tough decisions to make on Wednesday.

Kirk Merritt, a 4-star recruit from Destrehan, verbally committed to the University of Oregon on Monday.

Jason Pellerin, a dual-threat quarterback from New Iberia has verbally committed to Ole Miss.   

Deshawn Raymond, a defensive back from Metairie, has verbally committed to TCU.
