Southeastern University added a diamond in the rough to their 2020 class when they got Jhy Orgeron’s pledge on Monday.
It’s evident that the 6-foot-4, 266-pound Orgeron flew under the radar for whatever reason, which is why he’s a huge steal for the Southeastern program. “I knew that Southeastern was the place for me to be,” Orgeron said. “I didn’t want to wait any longer after coach Calais called me & said the whole staff wants me bad. The staff kept in touch with me everyday & that was big to me. When I talked to my mom about it she said do whatever your heart desires.”
On the offensive line you look for quick feet, lateral mobility, & fluidity in their movement. Orgeron possesses those traits at offensive guard & then some. He still has some things he needs to improve on, but it’s no doubt he has the traits to be an all-conference player on the next level. When you turn on his film you instantly notice that he has a fearless mentality on the field which is big for an offensive lineman.
Orgeron had pretty good showings at UL, LSU, Tulane, & Nicholls St camps. At the Nicholls St camp he earned MVP for the best offensive lineman. Even though Nicholls St didn’t offer Orgeron he still remains high on the program. “Nicholls have shown a lot of interest in me,” Orgeron said. “Coach Rebowe, coach Russ, & coach Roussel are awesome guys. I love what they are doing with their program.”
After evaluating Orgeron at the Southeastern & Nicholls St camp this summer he looks like he could have a monster senior year. “I know I have a lot of guys looking up to me,” he said. “I just want to show leadership & lead by example my last year.”
Don’t be surprised if Orgeron gets some late offers before signing day. ULM, UL, & Nicholls St will be keeping a close eye on him this upcoming season for sure.
