Baton Rouge - Derrius Guice will enter the National Football League draft, he's the fifth underclassman from LSU to declare this season. Since taking over for Leonard Fournette as the Tigers' starter this past season, it was nearly a foregone conclusion that Guice would enter the draft.
His departure, along with the departure of senior running back Darrel Williams, leaves LSU with Nick Brossette (19 carries, 96 yards) as the expected top returning rusher for the 2018 season.
He has explosive speed and also can run over defenders who get in his way.
Lalu's destiny in third fodder rip-off to be selected Jan 24
Another fodder scam case is inching closer to the judgment day, that could cause more trouble for Lalu Prasad Yadav, who is for the eighth time in a jail.
After battling injuries this year, it makes sense for him to go pro, but he'll always remember the time he spent at LSU.
Guice earned first-team All-SEC honors in 2016 and second-team honors this past season. Guice eventually broke through, running rampant for 276 yards against the Ole Miss in LSU's 40-24 win. He has three of the top four single-game performances in school history, including a school-record 285-yard performance against Texas A&M in the 2016 regular-season finale. In the Citrus Bowl, Guice became the fifth player to cross 3,000 career rushing yards at the school. His numbers dropped off slightly in his first and final year as the unquestioned starter, but he still maintained an average yards per carry of 5.3, and he had well over 1,000 yards and 10 touchdowns.
