LSU tight end Dillon Gordon is stuck in limbo.
The fifth-year senior is hoping he can earn another year of eligibility after playing only four games for the Tigers last season, caused by re-injuring his Achilles tendon. The only problem: Gordon’s appeal to the NCAA is taking a while to reach resolution.
Coach Les Miles said Monday that a decision on Gordon’s status may not come until after spring practice.
“Absolutely (he would be able to practice in the spring if he gets cleared by NCAA) but I don’t know that we will see that information quickly enough,” Miles said according to NOLA.com’s Jim Kleinpeter.
The 300-pound tight end started all 13 games for LSU in 2014 but didn’t record a reception. He primarily serves as a blocking tight end.
