Louisiana Tech Bulldogs College Football Preview 2021: Top Players
Best Louisiana Tech Bulldogs Offensive Player
WR Griffin Hebert, Jr.
He wasn’t used enough last season, but he was one of the few Bulldog receivers who made a slew of big plays. He caught 19 passes for 275 yards and three scores – starting out with two touchdowns against Southern Miss – after averaging 17.9 yards per catch as a freshman.
He’s got 6-3 size, deep threat ability, and the upside to become a No. 1 target – at least that’s the hope in an receiving corps that needs some redoing.

Best Louisiana Tech Bulldogs Defensive Player
S BeeJay Williamson, Soph.
If it’s not one of the linebackers as the No. 1 guy, it’s one of the team’s most productive defensive backs.
The 6-1, 185-pound sophomore showed glimpses in 2019 in a 33-tackle season, and last year he did a little of everything as a strong playmaker in a solid secondary. The all-star made 56 tackles with three picks as one of the team’s steadier safties.

Top Incoming Louisiana Tech Bulldogs Transfer
RB Marcus Williams, Sr.
The Bulldogs needed a running back, and they got a good one from the transfer portal in the 5-10, 210-pound Williams. The former Appalachian State star ran for over 2,200 yards in his four years – 500 or more in each season – with 14 touchdowns averaging 5.5 yards per carry.
He only played in eight games last season, but he came up with three 100-yard days including a 101-yard, one-score day on just six carries in the win over North Texas. He’s fast, he can run with pop, and he should fit in right away.
