Not unexpected. Tigers have depth at position, but most of it unproven outside of Chark https://t.co/WJC5NEstUY
The full statement can read below:
"LSU.. I can not thank you enough for the past 3 years of my life. During this time I have built relationships and friendships that will last a lifetime. I will forever cherish the memories and great times I experienced at LSU. Coach Miles, I want ro personally thank you for giving a young kid with a dream the opportunity to make that dream come true. And to Coach Orgeron and all my position coaches Henry, Ball and Craig I want to thank you for everything as well. I want to personally thank every teammate I have shared the special opportunity with to play for such a great program as LSU. We will be brothers for life. With that being said it is time to part ways with the great place I have called home for the past 3 years for now, but LSU every ending has a new beginning and that new beginning for me is pursuing another dream of mine and that is to play in the National Football League. So after long thought and consideration I will be declaring for the 2017 NFL draft. Thank you Louisiana."
