Devin White will assume a major leadership role this season.

With the departure of senior leaders Kendell Beckwith and Duke Riley, sophomore LB Devin White could be the Tigers’ most important player on defense. White posted a remarkable freshman year, notching 30 total tackles and becoming a major presence in Dave Aranda’s new defense.

Due to the successes both Beckwith and Riley leave behind, White is next up to assume the leadership role of linebacker, which has proven to be a powerful position at LSU in recent years. Due to his film last season, there is no doubt Devin White is ready to lead LSU’s defense in 2017-2018.
