Orgeron Makes an Impact on Mississippi Commitments
Orgeron's Impact on Recent Mississippi Recruits
quote:

“The thing I felt comfortable with — and when I really knew I wanted to play there — was (that) the head coach helps coach the defensive line,” Handy said Sunday. “He’s going to put more time into the defense. He’s going to look out for us.” “He’s cool,” Handy said. “That’s my guy right there.”

Coach O made a big impact on the two recent commitments from Mississippi. The fact that he snagged ILB Zack Edwards, who is from Starkville, out from underneath MSU is significant. Add Jaren Hardy from the state of Mississippi and Mississippi safety prospect Jarrian Jones put the Tigers in his top three with Mississippi State and Oklahoma after his visit. I see this as a positive sign of players having confidence in Orgeron as a head coach. I realize that nothing's for sure until they sign but I think that he is on his way to putting together a highly ranked class in 2019. He should do well with instate recruits and being able to go into Mississippi with success is a good sign.
There will always be those who criticize him but I think that the program is in good shape with him and his staff.

Well, this kind of positivity simply isn't tolerated around here.

No matter how you slice it, O knows Miss very well and that can only help with future recruiting in that state.

Orgeron is a good recruiter. He has a rah-rah, positive energy thing going that connects with a lot of kids.

I think everyone, Orgeron detractors included, should give him credit for getting these verbal commitments.

Of course the real credit comes on signing day if and when he closes the deal. It seems like about half of the kids from other states who give us early commits change their mind somewhere along the way.

Congrats to Ed O and his staff on these two verbal commits. I am sure the new coaches at Miss state and Ole Miss are getting hammered on some message board in Mississippi somewhere for missing on these two.

Tyrion Davis being the 16th ranked RB seems a bit high, right? I mean, I get he runs behind Kardell which helps, but his highlights are awesome.

ETA:
By high, I mean high number. Kid should be top 10.

I don’t remember anyone saying they didn’t think O could get great talent. In fact that’s the one thing everyone is counting on . It’s the other stuff that’s worrisome.

Between TX, LA, and MS LSU should be more than fine this year. This staff needs to stay on these guys, can't have long periods of time where you don't contact them or show "love". Stay on them O.

Bottom line, and rightfully so, results matter. If LSU can beat Miami to start the season and look good doing so it will pay off huge. Consider that this is a nationally televised game played in one of our recruiting regions (Texas) against Miami which is in another state we recruit heavily.

If we come out and take care of business this game will pay dividends.

Going by those same rankings, the 19th rated of 22 players in this year's class was named to the 1st team Florida 6A All-State team.

Those same rankings had Greedy Williams as the 16th best prospect and 4th best DB in LSU's 2016 class. Turns out he is probably one of the top 5 players on the LSU team.

As someone else mentioned on this board earlier, Jacob Phillips was rated as the BEST ILB in the nation in last year's class. Tyler Taylor who was the 11th rated ILB started and played a lot more than Jacob.

Also JaCoby Stevens was rated as the BEST safety in last year's class. Grant Delpit was the 9th rated safety and started all season while JaCoby was moved to offense.

So keep hanging onto the rankings and weeping about LSU's 2018 class. As shown above the player rankings are NEVER wrong.

Ever read his resume'?

The man has coached nearly every position there is.

Defensive backs, special teams, outside linebackers, running backs, offensive line, offensive coordinator, defensive coordinator. That's fricking amazing.

And people think he's succesful because he coached in a "weak league." Ok.

You saying west coast football is not weak. Just because he coached a lot of positions don't mean jack. Maybe he wasn't very good at them. He is def no defensive guru. Go look at his team stats on defense. And that's playing weak arse west coast football.
