LSU football podcast: Kelvin Joseph decommitment highlights LSU’s lack of blue-chip talent in 2018 class

LSU football is the No. 1 topic of discussion every day on SEC Country’s  One Team, One Podcast. Host  Carter ‘The Power” Bryant is joined in this episode by SEC Country’s recruiting ace Sam Spiegelman to discuss 4-star cornerback Kelvin Joseph’s decommitment from LSU, if the Tigers are in recruiting trouble after their embarrassing loss to Troy, if Les Miles is to blame for Ed Orgeron’s struggles and the latest on 5-star cornerback Patrick Surtain Jr. 

Kelvin Joseph decommits from LSU

The Tigers lost their highest rated commitment in the 2018 class when Joseph decided to re-open his options. The 4-star Scotlandville cornerback opened up to Spiegelman about why he chose to rethink his options.

Spiegelman believes despite the loss to Troy, LSU is still in the lead for Joseph. He also explains Joseph does not want to lose his opportunity to make all of his intended official visits by staying committed to LSU. Teams are now pulling opportunities if players do not re-open their commitment.

Ed Orgeron’s recruiting

Orgeron is known for his recruiting prowess. It was one of the pillars of why Athletic Director Joe Alleva was willing to make him the official head coach. But can Coach O keep a positive pitch after an embarrassing start to the season?

Spiegelman believes Orgeron can still piece together a strong 2018 class, but he does note the Tigers lack elite prospects. Their class has suffered because of it, as the Tigers rank 15th nationally and No. 5 in the SEC according to 247 Sports.

Patrick Surtain Jr.

The Tigers are in the lead for the nation’s best corner prospect Surtain Jr. Spiegelman is currently in Florida to visit with the 5-star shutdown cornerback who has strong ties to Louisiana.
