Happy Wednesday, LSU fans.
With Pro Day in the rearview mirror, our attention shifts back to the current LSU team as they returned to the field for spring practice.
Here are eight things to know:
- Here’s why Sci Martin wound up signing his letter of intent with LSU, and what the LSU coaches envision his role being next season.
- Here are three players that helped their draft stock at LSU’s Pro Day. A hint: it involved running blazing 40s and putting up 26 bench press reps.
- LSU tight end Dillon Gordon’s eligibility appeal could remain unsolved through spring practice. In other words, there’s a lot of uncertainty surrounding Gordon’s future with the team.
- It turns out that former LSU cornerback Morris Claiborne is not selling his SEC championship ring. Earlier this week, reports surfaced that he had listed the hardware on eBay.
- Damien Degruy may be the next tight end that LSU pursues in its 2017 recruiting class. See how the New Orleans native compares to Jamal Pettigrew and what the Tigers’ coaches had to say.
- LSU basketball coach Johnny Jones said he was “embarrassed” by the team’s SEC tournament loss to Texas A&M. Apparently, that played in a role in Jones’ decision not to partake in the postseason at all.
- Linebacker Kendell Beckwith returned to practice on Tuesday and said he was playing at 85 percent. However, the standout middle linebacker revealed he could play in a game.
- The news was not as good for stud running back Leonard Fournette, who missed practice with a soft tissue injury. Fournette’s injury is considered minor.
Other LSU news from around the Internet
