LSU safety John Battle announced he will return to Baton Rouge for his senior season with a dramatic, Batman-themed video on Monday evening.

Battle often references Batman, so it’s not a surprise to see him do so again with this decision.
He was LSU third-leading tackler in 2016 and is the Tigers’ top returning defensive back in that category. He made 61 total tackles, including 2.5 tackles for loss. He snagged one interception, the second of his career, and also forced two fumbles.
Battle joins LSU junior offensive lineman Garrett Brumfield in returning to Baton Rouge. Here’s a guide of what the remaining LSU underclassmen might decide to do as the NFL Draft declaration deadline approaches.
The Tigers are projected to improve on their 9-4 record in the second season under coach Ed Orgeron. Defensive coordinator Dave Aranda is also returning to the Tigers’ coaching staff.
