Previous 15 Notes Next 15 Notes


  Tulane posted its spring football roster this week-a 71-scholarship-player list that includes eight newcomers from the transfer portal, two earlier arrivals from the 2023 freshman class and leaves no room for any pickups when the late signing period begins Wednesday. A year after having phenomenal success in the portal on the way to a breakthrough 12-2 season, the Green Wave hopes to take the same route as it defends its first conference title since 1998. The latest additions are former Texas A&M wide receiver Yulkeith Brown, former South Florida tight end Chris Carter and former Marshall safety Andre Sam, who join offensive lineman Cameron Wire (LSU), linebacker Tyler Grubbs (Lousiana Tech), safeties AJ Hampton (Northwestern) and Darius Swanson (Nebraska-Kearney) and wide receiver Dontae Fleming (UL).

Brown, a 4-star prospect who was ranked the No. 176 recruit in the nation by Rivals.com out of Miami Central High in 2021, could bolster a wide receiver group that loses Shae Wyatt and Duece Watts, a duo that accounted for 68 catches and 15 touchdowns. As was the case with many of Texas A&M's high-profile signees, Brown made little impact in two years with the Aggies (zero receptions in 2021; six this season). - New Orleans Times Picayune

  Michael Pratt eased plenty of minds when he announced last week he would return to Tulane for his fourth year. Plenty of power five schools would have loved to have him as a starter next season. Always an outstanding leader, he has matured into an outstanding quarterback, accounting for 15 touchdowns rushing and passing in three of his last four games. In the other one, he went 3 for 3 for 71 yards and the winning score immediately after Cincinnati took its first and only lead in the fourth quarter. - New Orleans Times Picayune

  Tulane tight end Alex Bauman caught a 6-yard touchdown from Michael Pratt with 9 seconds left to cap a frantic finish by the 14th-ranked Green Wave in a 46-45 win over Heisman Trophy winner Caleb Williams and No. 8 Southern California in the Cotton Bowl on Monday. Bauman's contested catch, with linebacker Eric Gentry draped over him, was initially ruled an incompletion, but a replay review showed the ball never touched the ground as the players rolled over in the end zone. The Green Wave scored 16 points in the final 4:07, the game-winning touchdown coming after they got the ball back following a safety. "I might have had a heart attack," Tulane coach Willie Fritz said moments after the game ended. Williams was 37-for-52 passing for 462 yards and a Cotton Bowl-record five touchdowns, exactly one month after the quarterback suffered a hamstring injury in USC's loss to Utah in the Pac-12 championship game that kept the Trojans from making the four-team College Football Playoff.

Tyjae Spears ran for 205 yards and his career-best fourth touchdown started the final scoring surge for the American Athletic Conference champion Green Wave (12-2), who completed an FBS-record 10-win turnaround around after going 2-10 last season. They were in the New Year's Six game as the highest-ranked Group of Five team. After Spears' 4-yard TD with 4:07 left, the Green Wave opted to kick deep instead of trying an onside kick. Mario Williams signaled for a fair catch, but fumbled the ball out of bounds at the 1. Two plays later, defensive tackle Patrick Jenkins met Austin Jones in the end zone and smothered him for a safety. Pratt completed only 8 of 17 passes for 234 yards, but had two 24-yard completions on that final drive after the safety. The first one to Bauman converted a fourth-and-10, and Deuce Watts held on despite a crushing hit from a defender that left both of them on the ground after a 24-yard gain to the 6 with 18 seconds left. After Williams followed coach Lincoln Riley from Oklahoma, the Trojans (11-3) matched the biggest turnaround in school history despite the coach's first loss in six games at AT&T Stadium. It was a seven-win improvement over last season's 4-8 record before Riley and Williams arrived on the West Coast. - Tulane/AP College Football

  Tulane quarterback Michael Pratt and center Sincere Haynesworth said on a podcast Tuesday night they were returning to the team in 2023, ending recent speculation regarding Pratt and reversing a senior night decision in Haynesworth's case. Pratt, a third-year player who was named second-team All-American Athletic Conference, never said a word about intending to leave after guiding the Green Wave to the league championship. Still, rumors persisted he would seek an NIL deal at a Power Five conference school-possibly Florida in his home state-and play somewhere else as a senior after 14th-ranked Tulane (11-2) faces No. 10 USC (11-2) in the Cotton Bowl on Jan. 2.

Haynesworth, a first-team All-AAC pick and two-year co-captain just like Pratt, has started 36 consecutive games from 2020 to 2022 after making 11 appearances with five starts as a freshman in 2019. He participated in senior night ceremonies before Tulane's final regular-season home game against SMU on Nov. 17-leading everyone to believe he would apply for the NFL draft-but he was eligible for another season due to the free COVID year the NCAA granted all players in 2020. - New Orleans Times Picayune
