Four Players Decide To Leave LSU Football Program
Four players decided to leave the LSU football program this week.
Offensive lineman Derek Edinburgh Jr., linebacker Lorenzo Phillips, and defensive backs Jerqwinick Sandolph and Derrick Raymond have all departed the program and will enroll at other school.
All four were part of LSU's 2012 signing class.
Edinburgh, who played his high school football at Karr High School in New Orleans, redshirted in 2012, and did not play in 2013. The future plans of the 6-foot8, 333-pound offensive tackle are unknown.
Phillips, a 6-foot-2, 219-pound linebacker from Patterson High School, who played sparingly in 2013, after redshirting in 2012, plans to focus on his academics at a school in Mississippi. It's possible he may return to LSU in the future.
Sandolph, who plans on transferring to Southeastern Louisiana, played a minor role with the Tigers in 2012 and 2013. The 6-foot-1, 200-pound defensive back from Hahnville High School in Boutte, La., has two years of eligibility remaining.
Raymond, a 6-foot-1, 175-pound cornerback out of East Jefferson High School in New Orleans, didn't see any game action in 2013, after redshirting in 2012. He also plans to enroll at Southeastern Louisiana.
