NEW ORLEANS — LSU running backs coach Jabbar Juluke spent the first part of the weekend in New Orleans checking in on a pair of the state’s best defensive prospects.
Juluke, the area recruiter, visited four-star athlete Bruce Jordan-Swilling and three-star cornerback Tre’ Swilling on Saturday at the Brother Martin High School (New Orleans) spring practice.
The coach took in the entire practice session, the prospects told SEC Country, and was joined by Alabama running backs coach Burton Burns.
Jordan-Swilling and Swilling are Louisiana’s Nos. 6 and 16 prospects in the Class of 2017, respectively, and both are being courted by a host of SEC powers. LSU and Alabama are among the teams that both elite prospects have included in their top schools.
Jordan-Swilling is deciding between playing outside linebacker and running back in college, while Swilling, the nation’s No. 35 cornerback, is experimenting some at safety this spring.
Both prospects told SEC Country that they plan to visit LSU next weekend for the team’s annual invitation-only Bayou Picnic.
“We haven’t been up there in a while,” Swilling said. “It’s a good a chance to talk to the coaches and staff.”
“We always go up there when they want us to,” added Jordan-Swilling.
