Two LSU Football Players On SI’s Top 100 List
Two players from the LSU Tigers are listed among the top 100 players in college football.
Sports Illustrated recently released their annual list of the top 100 players in the world of college football, with two LSU players making the list.
Sophomore defensive end Arden Key is ranked 7th in the poll, while junior running back Derrius Guice is listed at #17.
A first-team SEC pick, and a freshman All-American selection in 2016, Key played in 12 games, including 9 as a starter last season, recording 41 tackles and five sacks.
A first-team SEC selection last season, Guice rushed for 1,387 yards and 15 touchdowns.
Last season, LSU had five players on the list, including running back Leonard Fournette, who was ranked at the very top of the poll, along with cornerback Tre'Davious White (#40), center Ethan Pocic (#47), safety Jamal Adams (#58), and defensive tackle Davon Godchaux (#90).
You probably can't guess the top pick in the poll.
SI listed a surprise selection at #1, in Florida State safety Derwin James, who underwent surgery for a knee injury, after playing only two games.
