National Signing Day, the only day of the year where grown men forget about the internet and instead gather around a fax machine. All waiting and hoping that over two years of hard work have paid off. Getting their prized "bull" as the Ragin' Cajun coaches call it. Mark Hudspeth and staff will reveal the 2015 signing class, Wednesday night during the annual singing day bash. This year, the Cajuns will host the party in the universities brand new student union. While the experts seem to have a mixed a review, I'm confident that when all is said and done, we will look back and see the 2015 class as on one of the top classes in the Sun Belt.

Terik Miller ★★★ Safety
Escambia HS, Pensacola, FL 5-11, 197 pounds
The Florida product brings size and speed to the Louisiana secondary. His 4.6 speed, combined with his thick frame will adapt well at the collegiate level.
Carlos Robinson ★★★ Tight End
Ouachita Parish HS, Monroe, LA 6-3, 208 pounds
While Robinson played some wide receiver in high school, he figures to move inside full time and play tight end for Louisiana.
Michael Jacquet ★★★ Athlete

The former explosive playmaking quarterback was recruited as an athlete, and looks to play wide receiver for the Cajuns.

Ethan Rose ★★★ Athlete
Northside HS, Lafayette, LA 6-0, 185 pounds

Jarrod Jackson ★★★ Wide Receiver
East St. John HS, Reserve, LA 6-1, 180 pounds
With speed to burn, Jackson will give Louisiana the much needed ability to stretch the field.

A huge get for Louisiana, Osborne held offers from several SEC schools. The Alabama product will compete for a starting job when he arrives in the fall.
Christian Goodlett ★★ Cornerback

Saraland HS, Saraland, AL 6-0, 195 pounds
With a cannon attached to his right arm, Weaver can shell out bombs from the pocket.
Walter Williams ★★ Running Back
Vancleave HS, Ocean Springs, MS 6-0, 210 pounds
Weighing 210 pounds and having 4.5 speed makes challenging Williams no small task. The Vancleave High product is already enrolled at UL.

Another early enrollee, Greenhouse adds more depth to the Louisiana secondary.
Ian Bjuro ★★ Tackle

Cole Prudhomme ★★ Offensive Line
Eunice HS, Eunice, LA 6-3, 280 pounds
The local product provides the Cajuns another big frame along the offensive line. Prudhomme was a two time all-district selection.
Ja'Marcus Bradley ★★ Athlete
Choctaw County HS, Ackerman, MS 6-1, 180 pounds
Bradley's signing comes as a welcome surprise to Cajun fans. He was not publically committed to Louisiana and held offers from Cal and San Diego State. Ja'Marcus scored an absurd 76 touchdowns in his high school career.
Kevin Dotson ★★ Offensive Line

Robert Hunt NR Offensive Line
Burkeville HS, Burkeville, TX 6-5, 315 pounds
Hunt is the second 300 pounder for Louisiana in the 2015 recruiting class. The big man is athletic too, on the basketball court he averaged over 18 points a game. An average like that proves he can move.
Rico Robinson NR Offensive Line
Pensacola Catholic HS, Pensacola, FL 6-5, 290 pounds
For the final piece of the 2015 class, Louisiana added a player with ties to the program. Rico is the younger brother of former Cajun LaDarius Green. Robinson's signing continues the theme of adding depth to the Cajun offensive line.
There is no doubt the coaching staff is excited about this class, with some calling it possibly the best class ever assembled at the university. The day however was not perfect, as the Cajuns did miss on Treston Decoud, who picked Oregon State and Marcus Keyes. The Port Allen, LA product flipped to Oklahoma State late Tuesday afternoon. Louisiana also saw commits Delmond Landry and Allen Spurlock sign with junior colleges.
Jeryl Brazil, who is not part of this class, is enrolled at UL and running track. Look for the former LSU Tiger to join the football team in the fall.
