Orgeron hitting the trail with open weekend to visit NOLA, Myles Brennan

It didn't take long for Ed Orgeron to turn the now open weekend into a recruiting weekend for LSU with the staff out and about as well as paying a visit to Tigers' quarterback commit Myles Brennan.

LSU coach Ed Orgeron is going to put the miles on his Hummer with the postponement of LSU's game against Florida this weekend. At his press conference with Joe Alleva on Thursday, Orgeron said it took "two minutes" to get a plan in place for recruiting.

"A lot of the coaches will be out on the road tomorrow recruiting. We have a recruiting meeting coming up and we'll be out on the road, and we'll treat it like an open date and move forward and take advantage of the time off. Some of our coaches will be in the office breaking down our opponents and getting ahead of some of the opponents coming up, so we'll use it as an advantage."

LSU Director of Player Personnel Austin Thomas was approached by Orgeron during the special teams meeting and began putting the plan in place.

"I went to talk to Austin, I said, let's move forward and do what we need to do. Austin made the plan, we're going to go over the plan in a minute and the guys are going to be on the road recruiting," Orgeron said on Thursday.

That plan will include a blitz to see schools work down Interstate 10 to New Orleans to see schools like Brother Martin, Rummel in addition to Lutcher, where LSU has commit Jontre Kirklin.

For his final stop, a source confirmed to Tiger Blitz that LSU quarterback commit Myles Brennan will get a visit from Orgeron tonight for St. Stanislaus' game against Bay City. The Elite 11 quarterback and Under Armour All-American is solid to the Tigers and is now Mississippi's all-time leading passer.
