West Jeff OT D'Aquin Winthrow signed with the Ragin' Cajuns earlier this month. Read on as the 6-5, 275-pounder breaks down the reasons behind his decision...

The Cajuns collected two signees from West Jefferson -- WR Devin Scott and OT D'Aquin Winthrow -- and a third Buccaneer (greyshirt WR Quanties Armond) is expected to subsequently join the two-time New Orleans Bowl champs' roster.

"I'm very blessed to be able to sign with the Cajuns," Winthrow said. "It's something I wanted to do for awhile. I really didn't want to sign with anybody else. I'm glad this day finally came.

"Honestly, I signed with UL because I liked the coaches. When i first met them the coaching staff made me feel at home; that's why i signed with them."

Winthrow went into more detail about the Cajuns' recruiting team.

"First, the head coach - Coach Hud - is a great coach," he said. "Coach Rod (Rodrigue) and my recruiting coach, Coach (Tim) Rebowe, showed me a lot of love."

Nebraska put the full-court press on Scott near NSD, but couldn't sway the speedy wide-out from joining teammate and friend Winthrow.

"Honestly, it was a big relief when Devin decided to stick with UL and not switch to Nebraska," Winthrow said. "That's my boy; I really wanted him to come to UL with me, and he stayed true to his word. It was a big sigh of relief."

Winthrow said he expects to redshirt this fall. The Cajuns' coaches haven't specified whether he's projected at right or left OT.

With his athleticism, Winthrow could likely make an easy move to d-line with the Cajuns if necessary.

Bottom Line: He seems destined for a solid, if not sensational, college career.
