Weekend prep preview: Louisiana

The games roll on in Louisiana high school football. Although LSU is out of town on its first road trip of the season, there will still be plenty of games between many of the Tigers' best commits and prospects to watch out for.

Hahnville vs. St. Augustine: Hahnville is not at the powerhouse level it has been in recent seasons, but that's not the main motivation at work. St. Augustine running back Leonard Fournette, a 2014 prospect, might be the best tailback in the state. The Purple Knights will be a stiff challenge for the Class 5A talent at Hahnville, and it should be a chance for Fournette to showcase himself and shed some light on why LSU and Alabama are gunning for his talents.

Edna Karr vs. Salmen: A juicy battle between two of the top teams in Class 4A. Karr was the runner-up at this level last year, and Salmen beat the Cougars in overtime last September. This should be a fun matchup, as the Cougars boast a plethora of BCS-caliber talent like Miami commit Standish Dobard and Texas A&M commit Noel Ellis -- and that doesn't include 2014 talents Speedy Noil and Gerald Willis. The Spartans boast one of LSU's top commits in wide receiver Chuck Baker.

Westlake vs. Winnfield: Undefeated Class 2A Winnfield goes up against undefeated Class 3A Westlake on Friday night in Winnfield. This should be a good test for Winnfield defensive end standout and 2013 LSU commit Michael Patterson, who is one of the commits that Tigers fans have seen and heard the least about. It's also an early chance to take a look at 2014 tight end Jacory Washington -- an early target for LSU.
