NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) - Six states and Washington D.C. makeup the LSU 2020 recruiting class so far. Four from Texas, three from Louisiana and California. Fourteen total recruits hauled in by coach Ed Orgeron.

“We’re excited. We decided this year we were going to go national. Obviously we’re doing a good job in California, a good job in DC, great job in Texas. Looks like the Ohio area is opening up to us, there’s a lot of interest there. When you recruit national, it takes a lot of work. Our guys are on the road recruiting 24/7 right now. I have an excellent staff,” said LSU head coach Ed Orgeron.
