    i was watching Fox Southwest recruiting last night and the Texan broadcasters were pronouncing the "oux" in Perrilloux as Lou... as in Lou Diamond Phillips.

    i always pronounced it Low. anyone know which is correct?

    they were also very high on DeMarcus Granger. saying how in the US Army all-American game practices this week he was virtually unstopable.

    they commented on OU being the frontrunner, but that LSU also has a chance of landing him. lets hope Miles closes this guy.

    I don't know the family to verify, but I'm pretty sure it's pronounced 'pear-uh-lew'. If it were spelled Perrilleaux then we'd be saying 'pear-uh-low' :)

    Not sure how Ryans family pronounces it but the many people I know with the same last name pronounce it lou and not low.

    I've always pronounced it "lou", but I'm just a dumb Texan. :thumb:

    Are the 'll" supposed to be silent, so they make a 'y' sound? Maybe that's just in Spanish.

    I always pronounced it as "lew" and so has everyone else that I've heard say it.
