Three-star running back Sherman Badie has become the fourth 2013 prospect from John Curtis Christian High School (River Ridge, La.) to select the Green Wave, according to multiple reports.
Badie selected Tulane over scholarship offers from Arkansas State, Louisiana-Monroe, McNeese State, Memphis, Minnesota and North Texas. LSU and Mississippi State expressed some early interest.
His ESPN evaluation: "Badie is a strong, downhill runner with a tough grinding style. This guy lacks a lot of flash and is not overly fast or elusive but he is a hard, second-effort runner who can get the difficult yards and wear down a defense while doing so."
Tulane holds 18 pledges for 2013.
