  01/19/21 - Dare RosenthalrSo/2023, LSU, 6-7, 327 (DS#4 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 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

  LSU safety Todd Harris announced Thursday evening he will be returning for his fifth year with the Tigers. The 6-foot-1, 195-pound junior played in 10 games last season, started in six, and he ranked fourth on the team with two interceptions. Harris completed the full season after missing most of the 2019 season after suffering an ACL tear against Northwestern State. A former four-star recruit in the 2017 class, Harris worked his way up from special teams contributor, role player, to a starter in 2019, when he suffered his injury. - Baton Rouge Advocate

  01/13/21 - Austin DeculusrSr/2022, LSU, 6-6, 331 (DS#19 OT) + More +

  LSU starting right tackle Austin Deculus announced Monday night that he will be returning for next season, adding yet another returning piece to an offensive line that now has four of its five starters officially coming back. Starting left tackle Dare Rosenthal remains the only Tigers offensive lineman not to publicly announce his intentions, while left guard Ed Ingram, center Liam Shanahan, right guard Chasen Hines and Deculus have now made theirs known. Deculus, a three-year starter, is perhaps the most crucial piece to return on the offensive line. No lineman has started in as many games as Deculus has in his four-year career (34), and his 6-foot-6, 331-pound frame gives the Tigers an experienced big man on the outside edge in a year in which the unit is looking to rebound. - Baton Rouge Advocate

  LSU senior wide receiver Jontre Kirklin has announced that he will return to the Tigers for the 2021 season. The 6-foot, 184-pound Lutcher High graduate recorded 13 catches for 184 yards and three touchdowns last season, and he's the first skill player to formally announce his intention to return to the program this offseason. Kirklin is the seventh player to announce he's returning next season instead of entering the NFL draft, and he's the fifth senior to take advantage of another season of eligibility. - Baton Rouge Advocate

  LSU will return its entire starting defensive line next season. Glen Logan, who started in eight games at defensive tackle, announced Monday afternoon that he will return for the 2021 season. The 6-foot-3, 339-pound Kenner native had just finished his senior year, but he will use an extra year of eligibility granted by an NCAA waiver due to the coronavirus pandemic. Logan is LSU's sixth player to announce he's returning next season instead of entering the NFL draft, and he's the fourth senior to take advantage of another season of eligibility. - Baton Rouge Advocate

  LSU's top pass rusher on the defensive line will return for another season. Andre Anthony, LSU's starting defensive end, announced Sunday that he will return for the 2021 season. The 6-foot-3, 255-pound New Orleans native had just finished his senior year, but he will use an extra year of eligibility granted by an NCAA waiver due to the coronavirus pandemic. Anthony led the Tigers with 5½ sacks in 2020, and he was also ranked fourth on the team with 5½ tackles for loss. In 10 games, with eight starts, he totaled 24 tackles and had four quarterback hurries and a pass breakup. - Baton Rouge Advocate

  LSU football coach Ed Orgeron closed a week of re-recruiting with perhaps his best keep on Saturday night as junior starting left guard Ed Ingram announced he would return for the 2021 season. Ingram, a junior from DeSoto, Texas, is the Tigers' second-most experienced offensive linemen as he has started 24 games since his freshman season in 2017, including nine in the 2020 season. He was suspended for the duration of the 2018 season. Ingram was the second offensive lineman in two days to let Orgeron know about plans to return. On Friday, junior right guard Chasen Hines said he would return next season. Hines started all 10 games in the 2020 season after serving as a backup at center in 2019 and as a backup at guard in 2018 with one start. - The Daily Advertiser

  01/03/21 - Arik GilbertFr/2024, LSU, 6-4, 249 (DS#2 TE) + More +

  After almost a month away from the team, LSU star tight end Arik Gilbert has made his final decision: he will enter the NCAA transfer portal. There were questions whether the 6-foot-5, 249-pound true freshman would return to campus after he officially opted out of the season with two games remaining, although LSU coach Ed Orgeron expressed optimism that Gilbert might come back. Now, the player who was one of the crown jewels of the 2020 recruiting class has entered the transfer portal after spending less than a season in Baton Rouge.

Gilbert is a substantial loss for LSU and its future within the offense. The 6-foot-5, 249-pound freshman 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. He had not scored since catching six passes for 97 yards and a touchdown against Missouri, and Orgeron frequently said publicly that Gilbert should get more touches. - Baton Rouge Advocate

  Junior defensive end Ali Gaye will return to LSU next season, he announced Thursday on social media. Gaye wrote on Twitter he will see "tiger nation" in 2021. Gaye's decision bolsters LSU's defensive front. In his first season after transferring from a junior college, Gaye led LSU with 9.5 tackles for loss and five quarterback hurries. He also recorded two sacks and six pass breakups, using his long arms to disrupt throws, while intercepting one pass in the season finale against Ole Miss. With Gaye, who coach Ed Orgeron once called a potential early-round draft pick, LSU gets back one of its starting defensive ends, along with freshman BJ Ojulari. - Baton Rouge Advocate

  LSU senior defensive tackle Neil Farrell announced late Thursday night that he will return for another year of eligibility. Farrell, who played in all 10 games in 2020, was LSU's 11th leading tackler with 25 tackles, 2½ tackles for loss and a sack. The Mobile, Alabama, native started in six games and is a major return for LSU and its defensive line. All seniors are eligible to return for an extra year of eligibility, due to an NCAA waiver that was passed for seniors due to the coronavirus pandemic, and LSU coach Ed Orgeron has said that he is actively re-recruiting players to return for another season. - Baton Rouge Advocate
