Head coach Ed Orgeron and other LSU assistants started off the bye week by hitting the recruiting trail Monday to scout prospects and targets for the 2018 class.

Orgeron was in Texas on Monday to evaluate five-star cornerback Anthony Cook in Houston and current Ohio State commit Antwuan Jackson who plays at Blinn Junior College.

Offensive line coach Jeff Grimes was in New York Monday to see top-ranked junior college offensive tackle, Badara Traore.

After practice on Tuesday, Orgeron talked about some of the holes he is looking to fill in this recruiting class, specifically at cornerback as he expects to lose draft-eligible juniors, Donte Jackson and Kevin Toliver after the season.

Orgeron also talked about a need for both offensive and defensive lineman, safeties and running backs.

We have all these young linemen that will be very good in 1-2 years. Why would we do that

Jackson and Tolliver need to come back another year. Both are talented, but neither is a finished product.

Jackson has the build/game like Tre White, and has the potential to be a good nickel DB in the NFL. Tolliver has the build/game to be that CB who can matchup with the opposition and in many cases take them out of the game. Believe he has more potential in the NFL. With that said, yes, both would benefit greatly from another year at LSU AND both could likely increase their draft grades.
