DECEMBER 07, 2017
We are closing in on the first wave (no pun intended) of #Fritzmas for the 2018 class, and Tulane expects 16 targets to come to Uptown this weekend.
Of course, Early Signing Day will come on Wednesday, Dec. 20, so the Fritz staff is working to complete what could be a historic class for the Green Wave.
Here's who they expect on hand for this weekend only:
1: Juan Monjarres - St. Aug., LA - DE/LB (3-star)
Monjarres had another great season at St. Aug, and he currently ranks as Tulane's highest rated commit in the class.
2: Stephen Lewerenz - Buccholz, FL - OL
Offensive lineman Stephen Lewerenz will make the trip from Gainesville.
3: Michael Remondet - Ascension Episcopal, LA - OL
Remondet will also be on hand. Remondet and Lewerenz make up half of the four OL commits currently in the class.
4: Carlos Hatcher - Hebron, TX - DE (3-star)
Hatcher - whose father played in the NFL - has been stayed strong with the Wave since August.
5: Sorrell Brown - Arlington Martin, TX - WR
Brown is one of the under-the-radar candidates from this class. His tape looks great, and he'll be joining from Texas as well.
6: Davon Wright - Donaldsonville, LA - DT (3-star)
Wright has been a long-time Tulane commit at a position of need. Wright chose the Wave over Colorado State, Arkansas State, Army, Navy, and more.
7: Dorian Camel - Scotlandville, LA - S/DB (3-star)
Camel is a highly rated Louisiana target who has not committed but holds an impressive offer list. 247 rates Camel as the #23 recruit in the state. Arkansas, Mississippi State, Missouri, Iowa State, and Ole Miss have all had offers reported as well.
8: Anthony Lewis - Murphy, AL - WR/TE (3-star)
Lewis is a 6'4" TE out of Alabama. The uncommitted 3-star is another heavily recruited target with offers from the likes of Miss State, Kentucky, Indiana, Memphis, and more.
9: Maurice Robinson - Murphy, AL - ATH (3-star)
Robinson is an outstanding ATH prospect (#51 in the nation and a top-20 prospect in Alabama). He holds several major offers too including the school upriver. He's uncommitted.
10: Larry Brooks - Kennedale, TX - DB (ULM Commit)
Brooks is the first new Texas name on this list, but he's currently pledged to Louisiana-Monroe.
11: Charles Coleman - Mae Jemison, AL - DE
Coleman is an uncommitted prospect out of Huntsville who holds offers from Tulane and Western Kentucky currently.
12: Ryan Wright - California, CA - P (3-Star)
Wright is interesting as he also played quarterback in high school. His recruiting picked up due to his leg, as he looks to punt in college.
13: Barret Pickering - Hoover, AL - K (3-star, Nebraska commit)
Pickering is a talented kicker from Alabama HS powerhouse Hoover. He committed to the Cornhuskers under the last staff, so it would be a big pickup if the Green Wave staff can convince him to flip. 247 ranks him as the #13 kicker in this class, and obviously the Wave has a need there.
14: Curry Benn - Landry Walker, LA - CB (3-star, Southern Miss commit)
Get him. We need CBs, and Benn fits the bill. The local prospect has been committed to the Golden Eagles for a while but holds a new Tulane offer.
15: Preston Ellison - Odessa Permian, TX - DB
Ellison is a bit of an under the radar guy. He doesn't have a reported Tulane offer yet but will be on campus this weekend.
16: Jeffery Johnson - Brookhaven, MS - DT (3-star)
Last but certainly not least, Johnson is a big-time DT out of the Sip (where he is ranked as the #9 prospect in the state). He has offers from just about everywhere (247 lists Alabama, Ole Miss, and Miss State as his 'warm' schools, for context.
That's it for the second to last weekend before Early Signing Day. Word from the staff is that they are expecting a huge weekend to close before #Fritzmas as well, so stay tuned.
