NEW ORLEANS — Is LSU close to losing one of its most fertile recruiting grounds within the state?

That might be what ultimately occurs on Thursday evening when several of the New Orleans Metro area high school football coaches gather to discuss a potential boycott of the LSU Tigers football program.

Several of the area’s black head football coaches are meeting to discuss how coach Ed Orgeron handled the demotion of running backs coach and New Orleans area recruiter Jabbar Juluke in the aftermath of National Signing Day.

Juluke, who was responsible for landing 3-star wide receiver Racey McMath and securing the commitments of 4-star quarterback Lowell Narcisse, 3-star tailback Clyde Edwards-Helaire and 3-star athlete Jontre Kirklin, was reassigned within the football program on Feb. 2, the day after signing day.

Area high school football coaches are unhappy with the way Orgeron handled the process, indicating that LSU’s first-year head coach took advantage of Juluke through the final weeks of the recruiting cycle to sign the prospects to letters of intent, then dismiss him, sources told SEC Country.

Juluke is the former head coach at Edna Karr (La.) High School, where he coached the team to an undefeated state championship in 2012, the second in the program’s history. He continued to recruit New Orleans after accepting a position on Louisiana Tech’s coaching staff and then for LSU over the past year.

Juluke’s questionable departure remains one of several marquee issues that the coaches plan to discuss at the meeting.

Orgeron has become aware of the closed-door meeting later this week and has been in contact several of the head coaches that are expected to be in attendance, a source said. Orgeron has tried to stop the meeting and told some coaches he will devise a plan to try and correct the situation.

The meeting remains scheduled, and it is expected that the head coaches will move to boycott LSU moving forward.

Some of the schools expected to be in attendance include McDonogh 35, Edna Karr, Landry-Walker, Warren Easton and St. Augustine. These are some of the primary public schools in the city that have produced several LSU signees in recent years, including Leonard Fournette, Tyrann Mathieu, Jamal Pettigrew, Donnie Alexander, Isaiah Washington, Andre Anthony, Tyron Johnson, Sci Martin and, most recently, McMath.

New Orleans is regularly LSU’s most fertile recruiting grounds and has produced several of the program’s top players in recent years. The source intimated that other SEC programs have gotten wind of the meeting and could capitalize on the boycott, most notably Alabama. St. Augustine alum Burton Burns recruits the New Orleans region for Nick Saban and the Crimson Tide.

Even with the meeting scheduled to go on as planned, Orgeron is attempting to repair the relationships.

LSU’s head coach is in the process of hiring a new area recruiter. He had been in touch with St. Augustine alum David Johnson, Memphis’ wide receivers coach, who turned down the job because of the growing rift between the area head coaches and LSU, the source said.

Mickey Joseph is believed to be the frontrunner for the position, according to multiple sources.

If and when the boycott begins, Orgeron will attempt to host another meeting with the high school coaches to get everyone on the same page in the aftermath of Juluke’s dismissal.

Update (3:51 p.m. CT): A source in the Landry-Walker (La.) High School program told SEC Country they will not be a part of Thursday’s meeting.

So what are the players in the area we need to be going after? Is it too late to sends some Bar B Q to cater the meeting?

Juluke took a job at Texas Tech as a RB Coach.

In other slightly Miami related coaching news. Tracy Rocker will not return to Georgia. He was the once rumored Dline coach for Miami, when Richt got hired.

Wow that's a botch job of epic proportions - even a pathetic piece of **** failure like Grohlden never had high school coaches meeting to discuss openly boycotting the program!

Orgeron is already on his downward spiral...should be entertaining at least.

Sounds like we need to be ready to pounce on this.

This is Similar to what happened with Randy, but the coaches In the area turned on him because their kids weren't getting offers. But it wasn't Randy's fault, he was just following orders from the troll, she dictated what areas and the kinds of kids he could bring in. This is why we are where we're at today!

Good thing the coaches will direct kids away from a school because of personal issues instead of the players best interest.

Orgeron is one of the biggest corches to ever live. He hired Kehoe as his oline coach at Ole Miss for God's sake. I repeat: he and Al Golden are the only 2 people on planet earth to seriously think hiring Kehoe as OL coach is a good idea.

They hired Tommie Robinson from USC to coach RB's. Robinson was (according to 247) the best recruiter in the Pac-12. They also hired Mickey Joseph who I saw someone refer to as a "LA legend." That boycott will last all of about seven minutes.

He's built a moderately impressive staff at LSU, but that's easy to do since LSU pays assistants so highly. Anyway, Bob Davie at Notre Dame proved you can have one of the GOAT coaching staffs in college football history and still do unbelievably badly with it.

And didn't Al Golden do horribly with an assistant who did well with Pete Caroll at USC? (Jethro Franklin)

Oh I didn't mean Orgeron is going to be successful, I have no idea, I just meant that with regard to the "boycott" it's either over or soon going to be.

Ed already making waves. I'm sure Saban and the rest of the sec are all smiles. Anybody we need to be on out of St. Aug or Edna Kerr? Would love to get an elite DT from down there.

Hard to believe that LSU couldn't do any better than Orgeron.


LSU, Florida, Georgia and Tennessee all hired corches and could've done better.

I give UGA somewhat of a pass since Kirby Smart played at UGA and is a GA boy. The others were just bad hires.

LMFAO at a University President sitting down with the recruiting lists and telling the coach who he could, or couldn't recruit. Especially a President that stood up and MADE SURE THAT WILLIE FREAKING WILLIAMS WAS ADMITTED. Here's a little tip, THINK before you type.
