Lafayette (La.) Acadiana three-star athlete Malik Eugene stands 5-foot-10, 162-pounds and is a versatile threat on the football field. Attention is already coming as an all-purpose back, a receiver, a cornerback, and then he can also have an impact in the return game.
Southeastern Louisiana was the first to offer the Acadiana standout, but others are taking a long look at his talents.
"I've just been getting a couple letters from different schools like Mississippi State, LSU, UL, Arkansas, and different colleges," Eugene said. "They're sending me letters right now. Nothing really serious. I've been invited to a couple of camps this summer and I'll see how that goes."
This summer Eugene hopes to camp at LSU, Mississippi State, Tulane, and Louisiana-Lafayette to name a few, and he would like to get out and check out a few schools like Oregon, Houston, and Missouri.
Eugene is taking in the process and seeing how it all plays out, with several schools letting him know they see his abilities translating to a few different spots on the field.
"Most of them are at athlete," Eugene said. "LSU and UL are at DB I know for sure."
What does he think about the possibility of playing defense on the college level?
I love to play defense so that's good for me," Eugene said.
As a junior, Eugene played key roles on offense, defense, and special teams as Acadiana claimed the 5A Louisiana State Championship in 2013.
