2009 Profile: Chris Faulk
Chris Faulk, a 6-5, 280-pounder from Slidell-Northshore, is a perfect fit for playing on the edge as he is athletic, strong, has good feet and a huge wingspan. Faulk did not hit as many camps as some prospects his age but he did attend LSU's one-day lineman camp over the summer and then went back a month later for the full session of Les Miles' camp in July. What kind of feedback did he get from the coaches at LSU? "They told me they liked me a lot and that's pretty much what they kept saying the whole time," said Faulk. "They said they would be recruiting me and that I was what they look for in o-linemen." Faulk also started at defensive end during his sophomore season but he wants to stick to one side of the ball in college. "I want to play offensive tackle because that is what I love to do," he said. "I think that is my biggest strength because of my footwork and my size. When I go up against a defensive end I'm thinking that I'm going to beat him every time because I feel so comfortable with my blocking." College coaches are limited in the type of contact they can have with prospects in Faulk's class but they can send out lots of letters and he is getting his fair share from some of the big boys. "I get stuff from LSU, Auburn, Ole Miss, Louisiana Tech, Nebraska, Mississippi State and a few more," he said. When recruiting heats up for Faulk following his junior season he has some schools in mind that he hopes to get an offer from with one already leading the pack. "LSU is the one I really I want to go to and I like the most," he said. "After that, really it would be anyone in the SEC like Florida, Auburn, Alabama, Mississippi and Mississippi State. I think I like Nebraska too."
