The Tigers have the No. 4 recruiting class for 2020 with 22 signees. They have three open spots remaining. Orgeron said they are excited about the three signees. He added they filled some needs. He also said the Tigers will look for the best players available as graduate transfers to fill the three remaining slots, especially offensive linemen.
Orgeron said the staff wants quarterback Myles Brennan to be the best him. He added the coaches feel he could be excellent. He also stated they feel they have great quarterbacks and are in good shape at that position. Orgeron said he has only interviewed one candidate for the passing game coordinator so far. He added he likes former analyst Jorge Munoz, who left for Baylor to be the wide receiver coach and passing game coordinator, as a candidate.
LSU will focus recruiting efforts on Louisiana, Houston, and Dallas, then go nationally, according to Coach O.
