  03/24/21 - John Emery Jr.So/2023, LSU, 5-10, 215 (DS#12 RB) + More +

  LSU's two returning leading rushers, Ty Davis-Price and John Emery, are both limited with injuries in spring football, head coach Ed Orgeron said Tuesday morning in a radio interview. Davis-Price, who led LSU with 446 yards rushing and three touchdowns in 2020, has been hurt "for the most part" since spring football began last week, Orgeron told 104.5 ESPN's "Off the Bench," and they "haven't seen much out of him" although Orgeron didn't detail the injury. Orgeron said Emery, who had 378 yards rushing and three touchdowns in 2020, has been recovering from shoulder surgery. Emery has been wearing a gold noncontact jersey during practice and can't scrimmage. "He's coming back very well," Orgeron said. "He's doing everything we're asking him to do." - Baton Rouge Advocate

  03/20/21 - Myles BrennanrJr/2022, LSU, 6-3, 210 (DS#12 QB) + More +

  Imagine a day, years from now, in which an athlete suffers an injury that tore abdominal muscles and ligaments and required surgery. The athlete visits the doctor's office, sits on the examination chair, and the doctor walks up and says, "you're gonna need Myles Brennan surgery." That hypothetical was almost possible. A brand new surgery was almost named after LSU's quarterback, whose season-ending abdominal injury against Missouri last season was so rare that it confounded every specialist he saw.

Brennan said copies of his MRIs were sent to NFL and MLB franchises, golf and tennis trainers. None of them had ever seen an injury like it before. In an interview with reporters Thursday, Brennan said the doctor he visited in Baton Rouge told him that he had two options: 1) let the injury heal on its own, or 2) undergo a surgery that would be the first of its kind. "Personally, I've never done surgery on this," Brennan said the doctor told him. "So, we'd be naming the surgery after you if you wanted to." - Baton Rouge Advocate

  03/19/21 - Eli RicksFr/2024, LSU, 6-2, 196 (DS#4 CB) + More +

  Star cornerback Eli Ricks will most likely most of spring football practice due to an injury, LSU coach Ed Orgeron said Tuesday, although the returning starter may return near the end of spring. The 6-foot-2, 196-pound sophomore was one of the few bright spots in a porous secondary during the 2020 season. Ricks' four interceptions tied for eighth nationally, and he returned two for touchdowns. He was named third-team All-America by the Associated Press, plus a selection on the All-Southeastern Conference freshman team. Orgeron didn't reveal the details of Ricks' injury, but he did say "he may come back toward the end of the spring. Ricks was scheduled to miss spring football last season after offseason surgery on a torn labrum, although spring practices were eventually canceled due to the beginning of the coronavirus pandemic. - Baton Rouge Advocate

  03/19/21 - Max JohnsonFr/2024, LSU, 6-4, 219 (DS#17 QB) + More +

  Just who would be LSU's starting signal caller was one of the biggest questions going into this offseason, especially with Myles Brennan returning from an abdominal injury that ended his 2020 season after just three games. But it wasn't Brennan who took the first snaps on LSU's first day of spring practice on Tuesday. LSU coach Ed Orgeron said returning freshman Max Johnson, who led LSU to dramatic comeback victories in last year's final two games, was the player who went under-center first.

Orgeron said he told Johnson he'd be getting the first snaps going into the day's practice, and that it's considered a reward for the young player who helped prevent the Tigers from having their first losing record since 1999. "There's one quarterback that's 2-0 on campus here," Orgeron said, "and that's him." Still, Orgeron said all the quarterbacks took equal reps during Tuesday's practice, and that "there's no favorite" in a competition that'll likely carry over the next month, perhaps more. "The competition is open," Orgeron said, "and the best man is going to win." - Baton Rouge Advocate

  03/14/21 - Maurice Hampton Jr.So/2023, LSU, 6-0, 215 (DS#999 SS) + More +

  Two-sport LSU athlete Maurice Hampton has entered the NCAA transfer portal, head baseball coach Paul Mainieri confirmed Thursday, a decision that comes months after the promising player considered quitting football and dedicating his time to one sport. The 6-foot, 215-pound Tennessee native started in five games at safety for the LSU football team in 2020, and he played in five games so far this season as a reserve outfielder on the baseball team. He left the baseball team Thursday. "I was caught off guard by his decision today," Mainieri said, "but I can't say I was totally surprised." Mainieri said Hampton told him in December he intended not to play football anymore. - Baton Rouge Advocate

  03/13/21 - Micah BaskervilleJr/2022, LSU, 6-1, 231 (DS#40 OLB) + More +

  LSU linebacker Micah Baskerville will not participate in spring football while focusing on academics, an LSU official confirmed Thursday. Baskerville still remains on the team, and he is expected to return for the 2021 season. The 6-foot-1, 231-pound junior was a key piece in LSU's defense in 2020, stepping into the starting lineup against South Carolina on Oct. 24. Baskerville started in five games last season and was LSU's fourth-leading tackler with 55 total tackles and 4½ tackles for loss. His role increased late in the season, when he started in five of the final six games in place of Damone Clark. Baskerville missed the Florida game Dec. 12, when he did not make the trip with the team to Gainesville. - Baton Rouge Advocate

  03/03/21 - *JaMarr ChaseJr/2021, LSU, 6-0, 201 (DS#1 WR) + More +

  Last week, LSU announced that its NFL pro day is scheduled for March 31, and, on Tuesday, the university released of the eight players who will participate in the wake of a canceled NFL combine. The pro day, when NFL scouts test and time LSU's draft-eligible players, is all the more important this year because the annual NFL scouting combine did not happen because of coronavirus concerns. The list includes four players who opted out for the full 2020 season or at least part of the year. LSU wide receivers Ja'Marr Chase and Terrace Marshall, both considered first-round talents, headline the offensive side while linebacker Jabril Cox, a Butkus Award semifinalist in 2020, is one LSU's top names on defense along with defensive back Kary Vincent, who started at nickel safety in three seasons in Baton Rouge. Safety JaCoby Stevens, fullback/tight end Tory Carter and wide receiver Racey McMath will also participate in the scouting event. - Baton Rouge Advocate

  Former LSU tight end Arik Gilbert announced Sunday that he will reenter the NCAA transfer portal after de-committing from Florida. Gilbert committed to Florida on Jan. 31 after opting out of the remainder of his freshman season following LSU's loss to Alabama. Gilbert, a rising sophomore, was the prize recruit of the 2020 class, the nation's Gatorade Player of the Year and the highest-rated tight end in the history of 247Sports. In eight games, Gilbert was LSU's second-leading receiver with 35 catches, 368 yards and two touchdowns. - Baton Rouge Advocate

  A year after LSU's spring football program was cut short by the coronavirus pandemic, the athletic department has organized a full practice schedule that begins March 16 and ends with a spring game April 17. The schedule, which LSU announced Wednesday, has 15 practices plus the spring game. LSU's pro day is also scheduled for March 31. The pro day, when NFL scouts test and time LSU's draft-eligible players, is all the more important this year because the annual NFL scouting combine did not happen because of COVID-19 concerns. - Baton Rouge Advocate

  02/10/21 - Mike Jones Jr.rSo/2023, LSU, 6-0, 220 (DS#18 OLB) + More +

  Former Clemson linebacker Mike Jones Jr. has found his new home. Jones announced on Twitter on Wednesday that he is transferring to LSU. He started seven games for Clemson this past season, recording 30 tackles, four tackles for loss and a pair of interceptions. Jones played Clemson's Nickel/Sam spot in Brent Venables' defense, taking over for Isaiah Simmons after he was drafted in the top 10 of the 2020 NFL draft by the Arizona Cardinals. With Jones moving on, rising sophomore Trenton Simpson is the favorite to replace him. Jones signed with Clemson for the class of 2018 as a four-star recruit. - The State

  01/31/21 - Arik GilbertFr/2024, LSU, 6-4, 249 (DS#2 TE) + More +

  Florida landed one of the country's most coveted transfers Sunday, a likely replacement for star tight end Kyle Pitts. Former LSU standout Arik Gilbert committed to the Gators on Twitter, saying "this is the best situation for me and I’m excited to join the family." The 6-foot-5, 253-pound Gilbert, a five-star prospect and the No. 1 tight end in the 2020 recruiting class, left the Tigers with two games remaining in the 2020 regular season. He's likely to gain immediate eligibility under the NCAA's relaxed transfer rules. The Marietta, Georgia, native caught 35 passes for 368 yards and two touchdowns before opting out. He returned home following a 55-17 loss to Alabama in early December and left open the door to return to Baton Rogue. But he ended up in the transfer portal and clearly on coach Dan Mullen's radar. - AP College Football

  Clemson linebacker Mike Jones Jr. has entered the NCAA transfer portal, becoming the first player to be leaving the Tigers' top 15 defense that was projected to have all 11 starters returning next season. A team spokesman said Monday the athletic department's compliance office confirmed Jones had entered the NCAA transfer portal. Jones, a 6-0, 220-pound redshirt sophomore from Nashville, Tennessee, started seven games this season in helping the defense lead the Atlantic Coast Conference and finish 15th nationally with 326 yards allowed per game. - AP College Football

  01/19/21 - Dare RosenthalrSo/2023, LSU, 6-7, 327 (DS#3 OT) + More +

  On the final day college players had to declare for the NFL draft, LSU starting left tackle Dare Rosenthal instead announced Monday night that he is returning to campus next season, which means the Tigers will be returning their entire starting offensive line. The development is a major victory for LSU coach Ed Orgeron, who began the offseason by saying he would be focusing efforts on re-recruiting players for next season, particularly on the offensive line. Rosenthal's decision was the final one LSU's line was waiting on, although Orgeron and several teammates have been hinting at his likely return for several weeks. LSU starting right tackle Austin Deculus announced last week that he will be returning for next season, joining left guard Ed Ingram, center Liam Shanahan, and right guard Chasen Hines. - Baton Rouge Advocate

  LSU wide receiver Kayshon Boutte and cornerback Eli Ricks have both been named to the Football Writers Association of America's All-Freshman team, the group announced Monday morning.

  LSU punter Zach Von Rosenberg has been formally selected by the East-West Shrine Bowl, all-star game officials announced Monday, an honor that will remain in name only because the game was canceled amidst the coronavirus pandemic. Von Rosenberg announced earlier this month that he will enter the NFL draft, ending a decorated career that lasted five seasons in Baton Rouge. Von Rosenberg finished his final season ranked 23rd nationally with an average of 43.95 yards per punt. - Baton Rouge Advocate
