Possible and Definite Tulane Recruits Help Curtis (La.) Bowl Over Plant (Fl.) 33-3

The Tulane Green Wave football team plays their home games at the Super Dome.  While they were dispatched by Rutgers 24-12 in their home opener last Saturday, a few players who may play their college ball for Tulane had very different luck there on Friday.  Curtis High School from River Ride, Louisiana, followed the lead of their Tulane recruits as they crushed Tampa, Florida’s Plant High School 33-3 at the Super Dome.

Foremost amongst Curtis’ possible Tulane recruits Friday was running back Sherman Badie.  The 5-10, 190 pound Badie finished the game with 92 yards rushing on 10 carries for 3 touchdowns, all in the first half.  Badie is not renowned for his speed but is instead a bruising power rusher that fights for the hard yardage.  While some suspect his size and speed issues will hamper him at the BCS level, they didn’t hurt his performance against Plant.  Badie is being recruited by Memphis, Minnesota, Mississippi State and North Texas, in addition to Tulane.  He remains uncommitted.

Badie’s first touchdown was set up by a 38-yard punt return from Tulane commit Richard Allen.  Allen, a 5-10, 185 two-star defensive back, also scored on a 42-yard punt return.  Allen committed to Tulane on July 9.  Although he may not be a top level defensive contributor, he clearly displayed competency in the return game for Curtis on Friday.

Possible 2014 Tulane recruit Raekwon James also added a touchdown for Curtis, a 5-yard effort in the 2nd that came off a Plant fumble.  The 5-9, 175 all purpose back has received interest from LSU, Colorado and Southern Mississippi, in addition to Tulane.

Outside line backer Duke Riley, yet another possible Tulane recruit, led a stifling Curtis defense against Plant.  The four-star recruit helped Curtis keep Plant out of the end zone and forced Plant to end up 0-6 on third down.  The 6-1, 205 Riley is uncommitted although he has offers from Tulane, as well as Arizona, Colorado and Ole Miss, amongst others.

Curtis faces East St. John (La.) High School next week.  Plant will host Jefferson (Fl.) High.
