Defending state champion Edna Karr has an array of talented receivers headlining its offense and Banks is a name garnering recruiting momentum. Banks, a 5-foot-8, 153-pound athlete clocked a 4.8 40 with a 4.48 5-10-5 shuttle and 27.6 vertical. McNeese and Tulane have already extended offers and Nicholls will get a visit from Banks on Wednesday.

The 2022 running back from John Ehret is getting early looks from Louisville and Kentucky — and for good reason. The soon-to-be junior clocked a 4.8 40 time with a 9.1 broad jump and 6.6 three-cone. His stock is on the rise entering the spring.

Jason Gabriel

Running backs are a staple of the offense at John Curtis and Gabriel, a 2023 prospect, is the next up. The 5-foot-7, 150-pound prospect clocked a 9-second three-cone drill with a 4.81-second 5-10-5 shuttle. Expect programs to start taking looks at Gabriel as he assimilates to the offense this fall.

Stoudmire-Davis is creating some serious hype at nearby powerhouse John Curtis as the next difference-maker on offense. The do-it-all athlete has strong interest from Arizona State as well as Tulane to go along with an early offer from Nicholls State. He posted a 10.6 broad jump and 27-inch vertical with a 4.42 5-10-5 shuttle time.

Travis Walker

Walker is a prospect to make note of this spring as the evaluation period inches closer. The 6-foot-2, 164-pound safety clocked a 4.9-second 40 to go along with a 4.3-second 5-10-5 shuttle. Walker has yet to land an offer, but should see his recruitment pick up in the coming weeks.
