ULM's 2009 football recruiting class just added a little luster.

Earlier this week, ULM's first commitment Evangel Christian Academy's Blake Cogswell (DT 6-3, 290 pounds) and its most recent commitment, Richardson (TX) High School's Andrew Russell (OC 6-4 290 pounds), received national attention earning national rankings by recruiting service Scout.com's SuperPrep (http://recruiting.scout.com/).

Cogswell entered SuperPrep's national Top 100 ranking at #98 among the top defensive tackles in the nation. Russell earned an impressive #23 ranking in SuperPrep's national Top 100 ranking of offensive centers.

Cogswell and Russell join Mabank (TX) High School's Kolton Browning (QB 6-4 190 pounds) and Pace (FL) High School's Aaron Munoz (QB 6-2 190 pounds) at #74 and #128 among the top quarterbacks in the nation, and Munoz's teammate at Pace, Ben Giles (LB 6-1 227 pounds), who appears in the at #75 among the nation's top linebackers, in the national position rankings produced by Scout.com's SuperPrep.

ULM is off to a tremendous start having already secured five commitments, all of whom are considered national recruits. Among Sun Belt schools, only North Texas (one commitment) has reportedly secured commitments from one or more nationally ranked recruits. In-state, ULM currently trails only LSU (with sixteen) for the most reported nationally ranked commitments in the 2009 class (Tulane is third with three commitments who are nationally ranked).
