2015 Stats: Made his debut in the season-opener against Rhode Island but that his only appearance.

2016 Projections: He has redshirt freshman Jake Pickard ahead of him on the depth chart, so don't expect Laguerre to see too much playing time this season. However, you never know with injuries and things like that.

How'd He Get Here?: Laguerre didn't even play football until his senior year at Spring Valley High School. He then walked-on as a freshman.

What'd Recruiting Sites Say?: Laguerre was a walk-on, so he didn't receive ratings from any recruiting sites.

Money Quote: "That last game it was hard to let go and give back the pads. That's when I decided that whatever school I go to, I'd try out for the team."
