Ed Orgeron didn't need to go far to find the Tigers' top offensive lineman of the 2018 early signing period.
A potential future stalwart of the LSU offensive line, Cameron Wire is a local talent out of East Ascension.
The three-star tackle could look to make an immediate impact along the LSU offensive front filling in an already thin line that will only be worse with the departure of KJ Malone and possibly Will Clapp after the season. However, he's still coming back from an injury that kept him out of all but six games his senior season.
Wire was offered scholarships from Alabama, Auburn, Texas, Texas A&M and a late offer from Oklahoma a month before the early signing day. Wire was heavily recruited by LSU offensive line coach Jeff Grimes who will be leaving LSU to become the offensive coordinator at BYU next season.

What They’re Saying:
“Unfortunately he was only able to play six games this year, he sprained his MCL, but Cameron is a rangey offensive tackle who started peaking toward the end of his high school career. So he’s got a lot of growing to do. He’s one who got better every day for us.” - East Ascension coach Darnell Lee
