LSU’s new offense is catching rave reviews from everyone nationally, and the top high school recruits are no exception. Geaux247’s Shea Dixon joins Matt to break it down.
“The reaction has been way more than what I thought,” Dixon said.
Dixon contends this is because LSU has been selling this class on ‘we are changing the offense,’ and ‘we have this new facility.’ Promises are always made in recruiting, but not always fulfilled. This is especially true when it comes to LSU’s offense over the years. This time the promises are being kept.
“They’ve come through with it all,” Dixon said. “That’s why I think all 23 of their commitments in this class are solid.”
Dixon says it’s mostly offensive skill positions speaking up about the new offense. Which one’s specifically?
“I think wide receiver because there’s a lot of them,” Dixon said. “They have three or four committed…and they are all solid.”
The skill positions are bought in, but offensive line is LSU’s biggest concern this season. The trenches are also a spot Coach Orgeron has preached the Tigers must improve. What has the reaction been from the big guys up front?
“The one name we are watching in this class is Marcus Dumervil because they want offensive tackles,” Dixon said. “I have faith at this point that they will come away with at least one offensive tackle, and probably two or three other offensive lineman.”
