 Ferrod Gardner, Louisiana, Player News


  Two more Ragin' Cajun seniors, both starters, made it known Wednesday they will remain for the 2021 season. Will inside linebacker Ferrod Gardner and receiver Jalen Williams are staying, making it nine from UL who'll take advantage of the extra year of eligibility granted by the NCAA because of the COVID-19 pandemic. The other seven, as previously reported: starting quarterback Levi Lewis; starting left guard Ken Marks; starting kickoff specialist/backup kicker Nate Snyder; starting nose tackle Tayland Humphrey, an NFL prospect; safety Cam Solomon, who started five games in 2020 including UL's First Responder Bowl win over UTSA; Jack outside linebacker Chauncey Manac, who started three 2020 games including the bowl; and reserve nickel back Blair Brooks, a special teams contributor. - Daily Advertiser

  When Ferrod Gardner got official word he had been approved for a sixth season of eligibility, allowing him to play one more year for the Ragin' Cajuns, he had no doubt. Gardner was in, all the way. "I just felt like it was another opportunity for me to go ahead and better my game and better myself as a person," he said this week, "so I just definitely wanted to do it." Wow are the Cajuns ever glad he did. Gardner, UL's starting Will linebacker, had nine tackles including a sack in last Saturday's upset 31-14 win at then-No. 25 Iowa State, a victory that vaulted the Cajuns into the national rankings themselves, appearing at No. 21 in the Amway Coaches Poll and No. 19 in the AP Top 25.

The showing resulted in Louisiana Sports Writers Association state, Sun Belt Conference league and - get this - Walter Camp Football Foundation national Defensive Player of the Week honors for the 6-foot-2, 220-pounder from Trotwood-Madison High in the Dayton, Ohio, area. Cajuns coach Billy Napier, for one, wasn't surprised by what he and an ESPN national audience saw. "Ferrod's always been a guy we felt like could be an exceptional player," said Napier, whose 1-0 Cajuns visit Georgia State for their ESPN2-televised Sun Belt opener Saturday morning in Atlanta. - Daily Advertiser

  UL senior linebacker Ferrod Gardner, still recovering from offseason shoulder surgery, should soon resume full contact, Ragin' Cajuns coach Billy Napier said when addressing media members during a Tuesday teleconference. Napier said Gardner has been engaging in some contact drills but is "not 100 percent cleared for contact yet." The Cajuns "anticipate him getting cleared for...full-go contact here soon," the Cajuns coach added. Napier did not mention Gardner as being among the injured when camp opened earlier this month and had not disclosed that he was not fully participating until he was asked Tuesday.

Granted a sixth season of eligibility for 2020, Gardner - a Missouri walk-on redshirt in 2015 who is projected to again start at the Will inside linebacker position for UL - opened 12 of the 13 games he played last year and finished with 47 total tackles. He also had 50 tackles over 13 games for the Cajuns in 2018, and got the sixth season granted after spending 2016 at Coffeyville Community College in Kansas but not getting onto the field at all - partly because of a foot injury - in 2017. - Daily Advertiser
