A standout high school running back from the state of Texas has decided to play his future college football for the Louisiana Ragin' Cajuns.

Emani Bailey, a running back from Ryan High School in Denton, Texas, issued a verbal pledge to Louisiana last week.

The Advertiser's Tim Buckley alerted us to the offer.

The 5-foot-9, 200-pound Bailey will begin his senior season in the fall, and is scheduled to graduate next spring.

Bailey was also reportedly offered by such schools as Northwestern St., Southwestern Oklahoma St. University, East central University, and Angelo St.
