LSU football added another impact lineman to their 2024 recruiting class on Sunday. Such reinforces the Tigers’ efforts to prioritize the trenches.
Offensive tackle Ory Williams committed to LSU football on Sunday. The three-star protector from Buda (Tx.) is the latest development in a Tigers recruiting initiative that prioritizes the trenches.
Trench warfare remains a staple of SEC football as a slew of the conference’s offensive and defensive linemen fill NFL draft classes each year. Brian Kelly experienced such as an outsider with Notre Dame and, recently, an insider while leading LSU football in 2022.
Suffice it to say; Kelly’s recruiting approach is prioritizing the trenches.
LSU football is gaining a 6-7, 300-pound protector in Williams. The San Marcos HS product is nationally ranked No. 31 within his position group, but the unlimited potential exists.
Williams joins a class that includes OT Ethan Calloway (6-7, 300) and IOL Khayree Lee (6-5, 307). They’ll soon join forces with 2023 class members OT Zalance Heard (6-5, 305), IOL DJ Chester (6-5, 305), OT Tyree Adams (6-5, 280), and IOL Paul Mubenga (6-4, 275),
LSU football struggled with offensive line inconsistency in the early stages of their 2022 season. The Tigers found consistency after true freshman Will Campbell and Emery Jones Jr. fortified the offensive tackle positions during the walk-off win over Alabama.
Campbell and Jones return to their positions along with the rest of the LSU offensive line from a year ago. Moreover, we expect Heard to push for a starting position during the 2023 season. Regardless, the LSU football offensive line is in great shape for this season and beyond.
Remember when Georgia football’s Jalen Carter held Jayden Daniels in the air like a trophy during the SEC Championship Game? The sight was embarrassing for all LSU football fans. As such, one can assume Kelly felt somewhat humiliated.
Nevertheless, the Bulldogs’ defensive line is chocked full of NFL talent these days. However, such places the onus on SEC teams to improve their offensive line game. We think Kelly is doing just that with his current recruiting trend.
LSU football has reconnected its pipeline of massive humans capable of standing up to the SEC foes’ future NFL draft picks. Indeed, the Tigers are prepared for trench warfare in 2023 and beyond.
