Cougars claim another top defender

For the second time in three days, the Cougars landed a potential impact player on defense.

Former LSU linebacker Trevon Randle is the latest coup for the Cougars as confirmed by a source close to the team.

Randle, who still has four years of eligibility after redshirting his freshman year with the Tigers, announced in December that he would not be returning to Baton Rouge.

The former-Clear Spring High School standout will help bolster a linebacker unit that will be lacking seniors Sammy Brown and Marcus McGraw next season.

Out of high school, Randle also received offers from Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, Nebraska, Baylor, Texas A&M, Tulsa, UCLA, Arizona and UH.

Randle, who also played running back in high school, possesses good speed and could be an asset playing on the edge.

In his senior season at Clear Springs, Randle recorded 108 tackles and three interceptions, while also carrying the ball 15 times for 73 yards and three touchdowns. As a junior, he tallied 152 tackles, three interception and four fumble recoveries while also running for 386 yards and 12 touchdowns on 78 carries.
