IOWA, La. (KPLC) - Iowa defensive back Cejae Ceasar joined the slew of District 4-3A players to announce their college commitments this summer as Ceasar said he plans to be a Ragin’ Cajun at UL Lafayette. The 2021 prospect announced his commitment on his Twitter page.

The 6′2″, 200-pound defender chose the Cajuns over offers from Kansas State, ULM, Tulane, South Alabama, New Mexico State, Arkansas State, Air Force, Cornell and all six Louisiana-based FCS schools.

“UL made me feel like I was wanted. Coach Tony, Dieser, and Napier told me countless times that I was a big part of their team in the future,” said Ceasar in a written statement. “When I took my unofficial visit to the campus, I felt a family atmosphere and that winning mentality. Not to mention they beat the other team 77-7.”

Despite Lafayette being a close drive, Ceasar said location wasn’t an important factor for him. Instead, he was intrigued by how the Cajuns will use him in their defense.

“The position is a hybrid, like Isaiah Simmons. With my skill set, I feel like that was the best position for me because I can play multiple positions,” said Ceasar. “I just thank God for giving me the opportunity to play at the next level. I’m truly blessed.”

247Sports has Ceasar rated as a three-star prospect following a breakout junior campaign that saw him total 34 tackles. In addition, he broke up six passes and picked off another. He also recovered three fumbles, while forcing one as well. In addition, Ceasar scored a defensive touchdown and tallied a blocked kick.
