Ed Orgeron reveals 'likely' LSU starters in secondary with Derek Stingley, Eli Ricks unavailable vs. Florida
The LSU secondary will be thin once more as the Tigers host Florida on Saturday in Baton Rouge.
Of course, Derek Stingley continues to recover after a procedure to repair an injured foot. Meanwhile, on Wednesday, it was announced that Eli Ricks will be lost for the remainder of the season as he is set to have surgery on an injured shoulder.
That means some adjustments to the Tigers’ defensive back corps, and on Wednesday during his weekly call-in radio show, Ed Orgeron revealed what those adjustments will look like:
Ed Orgeron says the likely starters at CB with Stingley and Ricks out are:
CB: Dwight McGlothern
CB: Cordale Flott
Nickel: Sage Ryan
Flott, who has been great this season, goes from nickel to outside CB. Ryan, a freshman 5-star, is now healthy and available for the first time.

Flott has made 26 tackles from his nickelback slot — including a stop for a loss — while notching 1 interception and 2 passes defensed. McGlothern has recorded 13 tackles and 2 TFLs.
Meanwhile, Tigers fans will be keeping a close eye on Ryan in what will be his collegiate debut. He was in line to play against Kentucky but ultimately didn’t see the field.
Kickoff is at noon ET on ESPN.
