Often at the high school football level the best athlete on your team lines up at quarterback.

At Edna Carr High School in New Orleans they just happen to have a great quarterback that is also a great athlete.

Munchie Legaux has 12 official offers to play quarterback, not to play anything else.

"Every team that has offered me has offered me to play quarterback at their school," Legaux told InsideTenneessee.com. "Not any of the coaches are talking to me about playing anywhere else other than at quarterback."

One program that has Legaux's attention is the University of Tennessee.

Former NFL head coach Lane Kiffin has a history of putting great offenses on the field during his days as the offensive coordinator at USC.

"Tennessee definitely has a great football program," Legaux said. "I'm very excited about learning more about their program and get to know their coaches better."

While Legaux realizes that the Vols program is rebuilding, he is excited about their future.

"Their coaches are telling me that within two years that they will be in contention and playing for national championships," Legaux said. "Their entire coaching staff is very excited about the future of Tennessee Football."

Legaux is very familiar with his recruiting coach from Tennessee, wide receiver coach Frank Wilson.

"Coach Frank and I go way back," Legaux said. "I have known him since I was a little boy; he is like family to me."

It's a well known fact that Wilson is well respected in the New Orleans area, InsideTennessee.com decided to see exactly why.

"He is one of us," Legaux said. "He coached O.P. Walker to greatness. He is from here, he still has family here. He is very well respected throughout the area for what he did while he was here and because we are proud of the success he has had at the college level. It's like one of ours being successful at the next level."

Trust and respect are two words that Legaux used to describe his relationship with Wilson.

"We all know that he will do right by us," Legaux said. "We trust him, we know that he won't lie or mislead us. He is the type of coach that everyone down here would love to play for."

While Legaux likes the offer from UT, he isn't ready to make a pledge yet.

"I'm not ready to commit anywhere right now," Legaux said. "Right now there are four schools really recruiting me hard. They are Virginia, Tennessee, Louisiana Tech, and Oregon."

Legaux will be attending the Vols summer camp next week and is excited about the upcoming trip to Knoxville.

"I can't wait," Legaux said. "I'm very excited about attending camp there."

Legaux finished his junior season last fall throwing for over 1,800 yards and 30 touchdowns. He also rushed for over 450 yards and another 10 scores.
