Draft Profile - Dayton Dugas - OF - Sam Houston (LA) HS - UPDATED 9-12-14


9-12-14 - 

Dayton Dugas had his plane ticket to Oklahoma State and an official visit planned for this weekend.
No need. Wichita State’s baseball program won him over in mid-August. He loved Wichita and the restaurants he visited, loved the campus and the baseball facilities. His father is old friends with Shockers coach Todd Butler and — this matters to a guy from Louisiana — he noticed a Cajun restaurant close to campus.
“Gumbo,” he said. “My mom makes it. My dad makes it. Chicken. Sausage. Duck. Deer sausage. Every seasoning you can think of. Sometimes, my dad puts in oranges for flavoring.”
Dugas, a senior centerfielder from Sam Houston High in Lake Charles, La., gave WSU a non-binding commitment last month during his official visit. Butler gave him the option of thinking about it on the plane ride home and Dugas declined.  http://www.kansas.com/sports/college/wichita-state/paul-suellentrop/article1742767.html

Cool, let's grab him. I also want to see if the Padres would give up Gettys at some point.
