Head coach Ed Orgeron announced Wednesday night that freshman defensive lineman Aaron Moffitt, the son of strength coach Tommy Moffit, will be switching to offense and will play tight end. Per The Advocate:
quote:

Moffitt, the son of LSU strength coach Tommy Moffitt, played both tight end and defensive end at Catholic, but his specialty was on the D-line. He was ranked as high as the fourth-best defensive end in Louisiana’s 2017 class.

“He’s tough, good blocker,” Orgeron said. “We originally thought he could play defensive end or fullback for us. That’s what he was originally recruited here. We’re deep on the D-line and thin on offense. Wanted to get some blockers over there.”

The o-line must be thinner than we thought.

This is what's needed. A roster full of unselfish players!

do y'all even use TEs that much? I remember under Miles y'all got the best TEs in recruiting and they never did anything at LSU

Is Les Miles still coach? He's got chest. He's a good blocker. He'll help us run the ball.
