If you base Ed Orgeron’s immediate recap of the spring game on Saturday on how he sees the offense this fall, simply put, he’s loving it.

“Great job of bringing back the Joe Brady offense and spreading the ball around,” Orgeron said.

In another sign of optimism for the Tigers, Orgeron added that the secondary is, “the most improved part of our football team.” Notably, Orgeron also added “Dwight (McGlothern) had a great day today.” McGlothern has played in place of Eli Ricks at cornerback this spring.

“I tell you what, this Daronte Jones is a talented, talented football coach,” Orgeron said.

Orgeron added that linebacker Jared Small has had a great spring and will play in 2021.

The quarterback battle was a spirited one on Saturday. At one point, after a Myles Brennan touchdown pass, Max Johnson went 7-of-7 for 120 yards and 2 TDs. Overall, they finished Johnson: 11-17, 180 yards, 2 TDs, and Brennan: 12-20, 116 yards, TD.

“What you saw out there today is what we saw in spring ball,” Orgeron said, referring to alternating days of success.

The coach gave the QBs equal reps in the spring, but by fall camp, they’re going to start dividing it more based on who’ll start.

In other stats, Kayshon Boutte had 11 catches, 162 yards, TD reception, while Jontre Kirklin had 16 catches, 209 yards, 2 TD receptions.
