It's possible that Edna Karr could have two of the top ten prospects in Louisiana next year with CB Noel Ellis and TE Standish Dobard, and both were in Florida this weekend for the UA Combine.

"I did pretty good in the one-on-one drills against some good linebackers," said Standish Dobard following the action yesterday at the Under Armour Combine. "I did good in my 40 and shuttle.

"I talked with John Diarse, the quarterback from Neville. We're close. Desean Smith ('13 tight end from Barbe) and I are tight like brothers. He and I were going after it against the linebackers at the combine. He would give it to them, then I would give it to them."

A couple of other juniors caught Dobard's eye.

"They have a good tight end named O.J. Howard who is committed to Alabama," he said. "The wide receiver from Carver (Raheem Falkins) was out there, too. He can run. He's supposed to transfer to Karr next year."

Dobard predicts LSU to beat Alabama in the BCS championship game.

"I think LSU will pull it out," he said. "I have offers from every SEC school now. Kentucky and Ole Miss are the latest. The schools aren't telling me a whole lot (in terms of trying to persuade him to commit early).

"I'm very open. I like Miami and Oregon. I like the way both use their tight ends, especially the way they lead with the tight end. I'm also hearing from Texas A&M. My coach said A&M offered ('14 DL) Gerald Willis and me.

"I'll be going to LSU's Junior Day and to San Antonio this week for the junior combine. I want to get an invite to the U.S. Army All-American game."

Dobard helped Karr to the Class 4A state finals for the second straight year in 2011. In a quarterfinal road win over St. Thomas More, he had a breakout game with 10 catches.

The big man is versatile enough to play tight or split out, depending on which offensive package head coach Jabbar Juluke is utilizing.
