La. Tech continues to build

Defensive end Nicholas Bickham (Saint Amant, La.) has become the latest Class of 2013 pledge for Louisiana Tech, multiple sources report.

The Bulldogs are the only program to offer Bickham at this time. However, Texas A&M, Mississippi State, Louisiana-Lafayette and Louisiana-Monroe were also showing interest.

Bickham posted a 5.02 40-yard dash, 4.65 20-yard shuttle, 29.4-inch vertical and 69.87 SPARQ on the Nike Combine circuit this spring.

Louisiana Tech now has three verbals.
