Carthage (Texas) offensive lineman Adrian Goodacre has received offers from Houston, Memphis and Louisiana-Lafayette, and after much thought and consideration he decided to announce his decision on Friday.
"I just committed to ULL earlier today," Goodacre said.
What made him decide and go ahead and announce his decision?
"I felt like that is where I wanted to go, so I didn't want to miss the opportunity to go there while waiting," Goodacre said. "And I was thinking to myself that the bigger schools like Texas or A&M were schools that would make me not want to go to ULL even if they did offer. So I went ahead and committed."
It was a tough decision but there were several reasons he decided the Ragin' Cajun program was the best fit for him.
"No. 1 they're winning right now. They've been to two New Orleans Bowls in a row. In the next few years they're supposed to be rebuilding all of their facilities," Goodacre said. "They have a really nice campus and it's a really nice town. And it's not too far away from my family but at the same time it's far enough away where I can enjoy the whole college experience."
At 6-foot-3, 310-pounds Goodacre is slotted to play left tackle for Carthage High School as a senior, but believes offensive guard is in his future.
He is the sixth commitment of Louisiana-Lafayette's 2014 recruiting class.
