LSU Football Coach Ed Orgeron Talks Recruiting and NFL Draft
LSU Head Football Coach Ed Orgeron has had a couple of good weeks recently. His future recruiting classes have been picking up commitments, including five star wide receiver Rakim Jarrett and four star linebacker Antoine Sampah for the 2020 class.
Those two recent recruits pushed LSU's 2020 class to #1 in the nation, according to 247Sports.
The same week Orgeron and LSU landed these big targets, Coach O joined The Tim Fletcher Show on 1130 The Tiger for a "victory lap" of sorts:
In addition to the recruiting talk, Fletch and Orgeron talked about the NFL Draft, and how Orgeron is able to help players like Devin White and Greedy Williams when it comes to the draft.
The quote from Orgeron that stuck out had to do with "lying" for players. Orgeron said he'd do anything to help them, except lie. Which stands out, because it wasn't something that was suggested, he said it unprovoked. That may indicate that he was recently asked/expected to lie on behalf of a player.
