Just over a week ago, Cyril Noland-Lewis announced he was leaving Oregon State. Multiple sources are now reporting that he will return to his hometown of Ruston, Louisiana and play for the Louisiana Tech Bulldogs.
Louisiana Tech is a FBS program who compete in Conference USA. Noland-Lewis will be eligible to play immediately because he’s already graduated and earned his degree from Oregon State.
Louisiana Tech is coming off a successful 9-4 season, where they earned a victory over Arkansas State in the New Orleans Bowl.
Noland-Lewis is a great addition for the Bulldogs. His versatility in the secondary will allow him to play multiple positions. The timing is odd with the start of college football season closely approaching. Louisiana Tech kicks off against Arkansas on the road in just 10 days. In fact, Louisiana Tech’s first three games will not be easy. After Arkansas, they host South Carolina State, and then hit the road again to face Texas Tech.
Cyril Noland-Lewis was a respected member of the Oregon State locker room and his experience and veteran leadership will be missed. But, hopefully he can quickly learn Louisiana Tech’s schemes and plays. We wish him the best with his new team.
