Tigers grab two, bolster both lines

January, 21, 2013
The Tigers have added two more commitments for the Class of 2013, multiple sources report.

Junior college offensive tackle Nykiren Wellington (Athens, Texas/Trinity Valley C.C.) chose Memphis over offers from Grambling State, Nevada and UTSA and he should provide immediate depth at the position.

On the other side of the ball, defensive end Claude George Jr. (Lafayette, La./Acadiana) will add speed off the edge, as he ran a combine verified 4.67 40-yard dash as a sophomore.
T.J. Fleeton (Daphne, Ala.), Devin Scott (Harvey, La./West Jefferson) and DeQuin Andrews (Farmerville, La.) all recently committed to play for Louisiana-Lafayette, reports.

Fleeton, a 6-foot-1, 210-pound quarterback, also was recruited by Florida International, Jacksonville State and South Florida.

Scott was the most heavily recruited of the three prospects. Colorado, Florida International, Grambling State and Southern University also extended scholarship offers to the 5-foot-11, 180-pounder.

Grambling State has picked up a commitment from running back Noble Johnson (Winnsboro, La./Franklin Parish), the Franklin Sun reports.

Johnson liked the Tigers because head coach Doug Williams wants to keep him at running back:

"Most of the programs that were interested in me wanted to take me out of my position. Grambling made it clear to me that I would be playing running back and that made a big difference with me."

The 6-foot-1, 244-pounder had a monster senior season, as he ran for 1,686 yards and 22 touchdowns. His stellar year earned him a spot on the 4A all-state team and he was the co-offensive MVP of district 2-4A.
