Running back/linebacker Louis Beal is interested in transferring to the Cajuns.

In a teaser, the Daily Advertiser noted that University of New Mexico linebacker Louis Beal out of Detroit's Cody High, had contacted the newspaper about his interest in transferring to UL.

The UL Coaching Staff had heavily recruited Beal for two years as a running back. A delay with the NCAA Clearing House put him in a redshirt situation at Dodge City Community College in Kansas, but UL held on.

Nevertheless, Beal chose UNM over UL.

At 6'2", 220 lbs, Beal is not included in the 2008 UNM media guide, and there is no mention of him on the official Lobos website.

As a senior in high school, Beal ran for 1500 yards and 15 touchdowns. He also played defense, and as a junior recorded 95 tackles and 7 sacks, and as a sophomore starter, 82 tackles and 5 sacks.

In one high school game, Beal rushed for two scores, caught a pass for a third, and chalked up 125 yards in addition to the three touchdowns.

The UNM Lobos are currently 4-6 on the season:
