LSU coach Ed Orgeron spoke with reporters on Monday for his weekly press conference and talked about recruiting and the Early Signing Period which starts Wednesday and ends on Friday.

How the Florida win helped with recruiting:
ED ORGERON: I think it was huge. I think it's reassurance. And obviously recruits have a short memory what you did yesterday, and they all watched the game. But, you know, they've been seeing the whole time all the freshmen were playing, all the players that we lost. So I think the game had a lot to do with giving us some momentum this week, but we were on solid ground with most of our recruits before this game. But it does help.

How many players they plan on signing this week:
ED ORGERON: You know, it's very fluid right now, and I can say minimum 15 to 16, maximum 20. I think in between those numbers would be a good range.

How the recruits have responded this season:
ED ORGERON: No. They've been very good. Obviously we've built relationships. Again, these guys saw last year one of the best teams to ever play in college football history, and they remember that. And they see all those guys going into the NFL and having a lot of success, and they see us having a young team. Obviously we've struggled in some areas that we gotta get fixed. But they know that. It gives them an opportunity to come in and play early, see true freshmen playing, two freshmen quarterbacks playing and having success. And especially skilled positions on offense, they know we have great quarterbacks coming. We're fixing to sign another great quarterback on Wednesday. So they see the future looks bright.

On dealing with the early signing period & preparing for Ole Miss:
ED ORGERON: Just always have the phone in your pocket and I'm always available. We're talking to parents all the time. We're talking to players all the time. We have unlimited phone calls with them. It's kind of 24/7 and you gotta balance your time. And everybody's dealing with the same thing. So Ole Miss is dealing with the same thing. I'm sure Lane's got his time balance. We gotta balance it right down the middle 50/50.

Coach O needs to contact Kevin Steele (Auburn DC) and get him to come back to LSU and be the Defensive Co-ordinator for 2021 and bring Terrance Lewis (#1 ILB) and Armoni Goodwin (RB) with him! This Bo Pelini experiment should be put to rest and Kevin Steele is one of the best DC's in CFB and is, currently, the Lame-duck interim Head Coach at Auburn, while they wait to hire a new Head Coach. Don't let this guy get away...

LSU is like no other team, period! It is not even close. Tiger stadium is the most iconic stadium in the world. People visit The REAL Death Valley from all over the world, it is on the bucket list of people who have never been to South Lousiana. It is magical, mystical and surreal. We welcome all WARRIORS who ask for the honor to don the Purple and Gold. To those of you who come, We welcome you - Galdiators!
