Spring Practice continues this week down in Baton Rouge as Ed Orgeron continues to evaluate his new team and coaching staff.

Coach O says the quarterback competition is still up in the air, with first team reps being split evenly between the QBs.

Orgeron was also asked about a player that has not hit the field in the Purple and Gold yet, Pleasant Grove's Landon Jackson.  The 4-star defensive end is still recovering from a leg injury that ended his senior year of high school.  Orgeron says the former Hawk still has a long road ahead, but is eager to see what he can do when healthy, "Landon Jackson had a pretty good break and it's going to take him a while. But, boy, I tell you what he's a big, good looking joker, man. I can't want to see him. He's a great young man, works hard, never misses a class. He's a great young man. Can't wait to see him."

LSU's Spring Game is set for April 17.
