Legaux plans a big visit, has top three

One of the hottest names this spring and summer on the national recruiting scene was also one of the most unique: Munchie Legaux. While the New Orleans (La.) Edna Karr quarterback has seen numerous offers roll in this offseason, he has also seen numerous quarterbacks commit to the same programs around the country.

Though many programs seem to be filling up at the quarterback position, Legaux is still getting plenty of attention, including attention from programs that would seemingly be done with their quarterback recruiting. Already, Legaux has one official visit scheduled.

"I'm already scheduled for Oregon on the 25th of September," Legaux said. "I'm scheduled to go to Oregon and then I haven't scheduled one for Michigan yet but I'm going to take that one also. My top three is Oregon, Michigan and Tennessee so I'm probably trying to get [Tennessee] scheduled too."

While Tennessee has yet to get a quarterback to commit for the class of 2010, both of the other schools in his top three have at least one quarterback already committed. However, that hasn't slowed their recruitment of Legaux, something that has impressed the tall gun-slinger.

"They came on to me very strong with recruiting when everyone else kind of slacked off," he said. "Even though Michigan has two quarterbacks committed they haven't slacked off and Oregon has one committed and they haven't slacked off."

Legaux claims that he has no problem being a second - or in the case of Michigan - even a third quarterback in the class.

"It says two things to me," Legaux said of Michigan recruiting him despite its current commitments. "It says somebody must not be playing quarterback and then it just says we're going to have to battle it out for the position."

While Legaux tentatively has plans to take all five of his official visits, he also is prepared to make an early decision if one trip in particular goes as expected.

"Right about now, my main goal is that if my [Oregon] visit goes well and if I like everything, I'm going to go ahead and commit," he said. "I'm just looking at the environment, the coaching staff, the players and just see how things work. They can tell you one thing but I want to see it for myself."

The regular season has yet to begin for Legaux or his Edna Karr teammates but he is excited for that first kickoff. He will have some opportunities to show some things that he hasn't been able to showcase in the past. After operating strictly out of the shotgun in 2008, Legaux expects to be much more versatile this year.

"I'm going to get you that highlight tape from the spring and the fall," he said. "I'm under center a lot and that's what I want to show that I can play from under center. We can pound, we can play action. Then we can go from that to five wides. That way you can keep the defense guessing and thinking."
