LSU's Derrius Guice's NFL Draft decision will happen after Citrus Bowl
LSU star running back Derrius Guice said Monday that his decision to enter the NFL Draft will not be made until after the Tigers’ bowl game.
Guice posted on Instagram Monday evening to thank coaches and LSU fans for uplifting him when he was down.
“My decision to leave or stay is still in the air and I will not know until after the bowl game so respect that!” Guice posted. “Love you all.”
This has been my face all year... started in camp when I injured my knee... played throughout most of the pain until some games I couldn’t. Many say they miss the old Guice, I do too. No player wants to be injured or play injured. I did the best I could this year for my team. We have grown so much this year as a football program and will only get better from her. Thanks to my coaches and teammates and loyal tiger fans for uplifting me when I was down and keeping me positive.. this season is not what I expected for myself and I know most didn’t expect it as well so sorry to disappoint! I’m finally 100% thank the lord🙏🏾 my decision to leave or stay is still in the air and I will not know until after the bowl game so respect that! Love you all ❤️↓ Advertisement ↓
