Ragin' Cajuns Offensive Recruiting Targets To Watch

The insanity that is signing day for college football is right around the corner. With only 15 commits as of today, what offensive players could the coaching staff be after?

National Signing Day is only a week away. What players are the Ragin' Cajuns targeting to bring to the program with so little time left in the recruiting period?

Let's take a look at some of the top targets on the offensive side of the ball heading into National Signing Day. This is not a fully comprehensive list, just a look at some of the top offensive targets that would help the Cajuns moving forward.

Quarterbacks:

Tyler Brown: The three-star quarterback is shown as committed to the Ragin' Cajuns on the Rivals site, but he is uncommitted on 247Sports. At 6-3, 195 pounds, he is a pro-style passer that can move in the pocket. Adding him to the roster would be a very nice addition, but the Cajuns already have one quarterback in the fold for the 2016 class, three-star pro-passer Jake Arceneaux.

Commits: Jake Arceneaux.

Running Back:

Trey Ragas: Ragas is a three-star running back from Marrero, Louisiana. He is still uncommitted, but the Ragin' Cajuns have been seen as one of the favorites from the beginning. He would be a jewel in the recruiting class as he already holds offers from Indiana, Kansas, Ole Miss and Utah among others. He paid a visit to the Cajuns ten days ago. Ragas would be the second highest rated recruit for the Cajuns if he commits to the program.

Commits: Raymond Calais Jr., Masen Mitchell (walk-on).

Tight End:

Javonis Isaac: The two-star tight end is a local player from Lafayette. Isaac was a Arkansas State commit and still is according to Rivals, but is currently uncommitted this late in the process according to 247. He holds nine offers, including offers from Louisiana Tech and Tulane. Adding Isaac would be nice, but the Cajuns have the tight end they want already committed, 6-5, 230 pound Texas native Cody Mitchell.

Commits: Cody Mitchell.

Wide Receiver:

Jarel Rowe: A two-star out of Carrollton, Georgia, Rowe has size at 6-5 that many teams covet. He could be a hidden gem in the class if the Cajuns can seal the deal. He currently also holds offers from Army, Georgia State, MTSU, and Purdue among others. He was a one time MTSU commit that decommitted late in the process.
Adewakle Omotosho: An extreme long shot, Omotosho is a stud wide receiver out of Plano, Texas that holds over 30 offers. The Cajuns will do their due diligence, but the only way he would ever fall into their laps is... I can't even see a scenario of that happening.

Commits: Calif Gossett, WR, Pensacola High.

Offensive Line:

Javious Bardney: Bardney would be a great pick up, but it looks like the Cajuns are out of his final three. The three-star is expected to choose between Memphis, Ole Miss, and Mississippi State. 
Jonathan Brys: The tackle out of Jackson, Michigan is sitting on five offers, including one from ACC power Louisville. The 6-6, 245 pound player that could end up on either side of the ball is likely to wait until the final days to make a decision. He could also choose to be a walk-on at Michigan. 
Ronald Ollie: The 6-3, 314 pound tackle out of East Mississippi CC would be a great pickup for an offensive line in need of help. The two-star recruit is sitting on offers from Memphis and Southern Miss in addition to the Cajuns. A move to guard may be in his future, but he has the ability to step in and play immediately. 
Alfred Beverly: The battle for the services of this guard could literally go in any direction. The Cajuns and Louisiana Tech were once front runners, but he has decommitted more than once in the recruiting process. He would be an important pickup for the 2016 class. 
Jeremy West: This guard out of Arp, Texas has the size (6-3, 270) to play at the FBS level, but has not been offered at the level one would expect. He is a player that could end up helping the Cajuns more in the future than in the 2016 season if he commits to the program.

Commits: Kendall Baker, Akkai Ward, Tra’Vontae Booker.
