Louisiana Ragin' Cajuns get commitment from former Louisiana Tech football commit Dubose
Louisiana Ragin’ Cajuns football has picked up a commitment from a former Louisiana Tech commit.
Lorenzell Dubose, a 6-foot, 175-cornerback from Neville High in Monroe, decommitted from Louisiana Tech on Nov. 27, one day after the firing of Bulldogs coach Skip Holtz and shortly before the hiring of Texas Tech offensive coordinator Sonny Cumbie.
Dubose posted Tuesday on Instagram and Twitter that he’s committed to UL and will sign with the Cajuns when the NCAA’s three-day early signing period opens Wednesday.
Dubose also becomes UL’s eight known commit, joining seven who committed when Napier still was the Cajuns’ coach.
UL had 12 commits at one point in November, but Napier flipped Texas high school offensive lineman Christian Williams to Florida and four others from Texas high schools decommitted.
Dubose is ranked by 247Sports Composite as the No. 48 cornerback nationally and the No. 23 recruit in Louisiana.

He also has preseason offers this year from Houston, Oklahoma, Oregon State, Purdue, Marshall, Southern Miss and Memphis, and junior-season offers from Mississippi State, Ole Miss and Arkansas.
Dubose took official visits to Oregon State and Purdue in June.
UL originally offered him in early March and Louisiana Tech originally offered in October 2020.
A track-team sprinter too, Dubos also played receiver for 2021 Class 4A state semifinalist Neville – the same high school that produced starting UL right tackle Max Mitchell and former Cajuns offensive line coach/offensive coordinator Rob Sale, who now coaches the New York Giants offensive line.
