LSU walk-on punter Bailey Raborn was arrested Sunday night in Lafayette, La., for operating a vehicle while impaired, according to The Advocate’s Ross Dellenger.
Coach Les Miles, through a team spokesperson, said that he is aware of the situation and gathering more information, per Dellenger.
Raborn committed to LSU in December, and was ranked as a 3-star recruit and the nation’s No. 3 kicker, according to 247Sports’ Composite rankings. He held two offers — a rarity for punters — from UCLA and Northwestern State, but chose to take his talents to Baton Rouge on a walk-on basis. Raborn also received interest from the likes of Georgia and Mississippi State.
Raborn’s brother Gunnar, a backup kicker at Alabama, was suspended following a DUI arrest last September and did not see action last season.
Trent Domingue, once the team’s backup punter entering next season, is no longer available after the Tigers opted not to renew his scholarship last week.
Redshirt freshman Josh Growden is expected to be the team’s starting punter.
