DE Tre’ Magee: Franklinton, LA

Our latest Diamond in the Rough athlete is 2024 Pine High School DE Tre’ Magee. Tre’ was an attendant of our latest Elite Camp held at Northshore High School, and he was able to show off his talents there. The 6’4, 245 pound run stopper can play either defensive end or defensive tackle, but does most of his work from the end. His 3.7 GPA, an All-District honor last season, and his high IQ make it evident that he puts in the necessary work off the field to keep him ready for being on the field. He is a fast learner and will be able to get even better during this offseason. There are many qualities in his game that make him a great fit for the Raider defensive line.
