LSU Tigers head coach Ed Orgeron recently joined 104.5 Off The Bench to discuss the success of the recruiting camps and the impact this summer’s recruiting cycle will have after a long awaited chance to host on-campus visits.
“We had over a thousand campers here, five official visitors, several unofficial visitors,” Orgeron said.
“It was great to have everything back to normal, what a great camp.” He continued. “Everybody got coached up. There were a lot of smiling faces on campus this weekend.”

These camps provide both the coaching staff as well as the rest of the LSU team the opportunity to learn more about their commits and how they will react to on-field coaching. If you look at the highly touted commits such as Walker Howard, Will Campbell and Jake Johnson, the LSU staff had the chance to see first-hand the way each player carries themselves, both on and off the football field.

“One of the things at these camps, I want to see the way they get coached,” said Orgeron.
“It was an opportunity for us, especially guys committed to us, who knows he’s coming to LSU, I want to see the way he gets coached.”
The 2021 season will be an important one for LSU, and the future looks bright.
