Head coach Ed Orgeron and offensive line coach Jeff Grimes were in Gonzales, LA on Monday night to visit with LSU offensive tackle commit Cameron Wire.


The 6-6, 280-pound prospect from East Ascension HS committed to LSU back in June, choosing the Tigers over offers from more than 30 different college football programs, including eight from the SEC.

Wire is the No. 28 offensive tackle in the country and the No. 16 overall player from the state of Louisiana for 2018, according to ESPN.

Didn't know O was so short.

I don’t think he is. Wire is 6’6”, and Grimes looks to be about 6’5”. O just looks small next to them. Glad to have Cameron enrolling early! Welcome aboard, big man!

See BayouBengal puts in a different perspective one that actually makes since that I do agree with. Unlike GoneFishing whining bc someone has an opinion that differs from his.

You whined about a coach in response to seeing a picture of him with one of our highly sought after commitments. I didn’t say we had different opinions did I? I said your post wasn’t related to the topic of the article.

Don’t cry GoneFishing this is TigerDroppings a place where you can formulate your own opinions. I am no Bama fan nor do I like one other team in the SEC. want to know why? Bc I have been a tiger fan my whole life. Just because I don’t like something you do doesn’t mean you need to get your panties in a wad. Sheesh

All I saw was you getting your panties in a wad because you saw Grimes in a picture with a recruit. You felt the need to be negative. I doubt you know what type of a coach Grimes is. You’re not in practice so I’m curious as to how you know so much about it. Offensive line is a position where it is hard to look good as a coach. You can teach good technique and still have one person make a mistake or miss an assignment and give up a sack or not create a hole. It’s difficult to have five guys be perfect every time. By your standards there is probably no offensive line coach in the country that is any good. I think most people would say Alabama usually has a good o-line. Well we were constantly in their backfield and constantly being held by them. Just so happens their quarterback is pretty darn good at getting away.

Grimes is starting to pay dividends. Maybe CLM was holding him back and stepping on his toes since the Oline is his baby.

One mans opinion is very miniscule don’t take it so personal ladies. I happen to think we can do much better for an OL coach. Just my take sorry if it doesn’t appease your minds.

So why not make your own thread about him instead of posting it after an article about him visiting with a high profile recruit. It’s unrelated

Jeff Grimes....not a fan

Why? He recruits at a very high level and constantly churns out very good o lines.

I’m more concerned with whether or not Cameron Wire likes him than whether or not you do

I don't think you realize that once Les Miles was let go that Grimes has been identifying studs, and going out to get them signed. Not only are they already producing but he's now recruiting much differently than BF Orgeron was here and it seems like since O has taken over, O has given him full authority to identify his own style of OT/OG and it looks to be improving our OL exponentially in a short period of time. I'm not sure that your distaste for Grimes has been all on Grimes himself. I could be wrong here but there is no doubt that LSU is now going in a totally different direction when it comes to recruiting the OL and I like that direction, I think most do. We'll see in a couple of years, but I believe the issue has been resolved, what ever that was. Go Tigers.
