NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) - Ed Orgeron sat down for a 1-1 interview with FOX 8 Sports. We covered a wide range of topics from the LSU team, to his parents, and the courting of his wife Kelly back in 1996.

The focus of this part of the interview is on the Tigers success in recruiting.

LSU finished the 2018 season at 10-3, and recruits noticed a change in the program. The LSU recruiting class finished as high as No. 3. 2020 recruiting class is currently No. 1. It’s safe to assume it’s great to be an LSU Tiger right now.

“No question. There’s a great feeling about our football team,” said Ed Orgeron. “The leadership of our football team, our coaching staff. I’m really excited about the players we have coming back. I’m excited about the hiring of Joe Brady (passing game coordinator) he’s going to bring another dimension to our offense. What a great coaching staff we already have. I’m excited about our recruiting class right now. Although, we have to finish strong. Things are looking good for the Tigers.”

With the success of 2019 and 2020 class, is O starting to feel or show that Louisiana is LSU country. If you come in from another state, you might have a much tougher time than you had in the past.

“That’s my job. My job is to get every player in the state if we can. We came close this year, we only lost one guy, that we didn’t offer a scholarship to. We’re proud of the guys that we have, and we’re going to continue to do a good job,” said Orgeron.
