Bruton High junior Kapri Doucet said on Tuesday that he has received a football scholarship offer from Football Bowl Subdivision (I-A) school Marhsall University in Huntington, West Virginia. The offer is the second from a Division I school for Doucet, who was offered recently by Hampton University.
Doucet, 6-foot-2, 200 pounds, has been a standout and perennial All-Bay Rivers District pick for Bruton since his freshman season. He said the Thundering Herd is recruiting him as a safety or linebacker.
"I made a great connection with Coach (C.J.) Price," Doucet said of Marshall's defensive line coach, who reportedly visited Bruton on Tuesday. "He said he thinks I'm a great defensive player and that I can help them.
"I'm very happy about the offer."
