La'el Collins #70

 

LSU junior offensive tackle La'el Collins announced on Tuesday that he will not make an early jump into the NFL, and will return to the Tigers for his senior season.

The 6-foot-5, 321-pound Collins has been a starter for LSU for the past two seasons, and was named a second-team All-SEC selection this past year.

LSU has lost six underclassmen to the NFL Draft, including running back Jeremy Hill, receivers Jarvis Landry and Odell Beckham, defensive tackles Ego Ferguson and Anthony Johnson, and offensive lineman Trai Turner.
