LSU junior wide receiver, and Biletnikoff award winner, Ja’Marr Chase will wear the coveted No. 7 for the Tigers in 2020, coach Ed Orgeron announced on Thursday.

“Ja’Marr is a tremendous football player from the great state of Louisiana that represents our football program with great character and integrity,” Orgeron said. “(His parents) Jimmy and Toleah have done a great job of raising him and he has worked extremely hard on and off the field to develop as a player, while also becoming an outstanding leader for our team. He’s very deserving of having the opportunity to be the next LSU player to wear number 7. I know he will do a great job of representing that number and all of those who have worn the number 7 before him.”

In just two seasons, Chase has totaled 107 career receptions for 2,093 yards and 23 TDs.
