Ed Orgeron hints at when we could see star LSU CB Derek Stingley Jr. play offense, too
Even though he was only a freshman last year, LSU CB Derek Stingley Jr. established himself as one of the most exciting young cornerbacks in all of college football.
He is one of the most versatile players in the game, which begs the question — will LSU utilize him on offense at some point, too?
“During recruiting, I promised him two years on defense and then the next year, the third year, I think you’re going to see Derek play both ways for us,” Orgeron said.
“I think this year you’re not going to see us just use Derek in man free coverage, I think you’re going to see him blitzing, I think you’re going to see him use his talents in some places where we need him on defense. I think Bo’s going to mix it up where he’s going to have our corners doing different things.”
Stingley recorded 6 interceptions and also had 17 punt returns (averaging 9.6 yards per return) in 2019. If he can start to contribute on offense in 2021, he could go down as one of the best LSU players ever.
