Draft Scout *Devin White News
01/14/19 - LSU All-America and Butkus Award-winning linebacker Devin White says he has decided to enter the 2019 NFL draft and forgo his remaining season of eligibility to play for the Tigers. White, who made the announcement in a video released Monday on social media, is the third player from the 2018 Tigers to leave school early to turn pro, joining defensive back Greedy Williams and interior defensive lineman Ed Alexander. White led LSU this season with 123 solo or assisted tackles, including 12 tackles for losses and three sacks. He also forced three fumbles and recovered two, and broke up six passes. In his video, White, a Louisiana native, thanks LSU, coaches and fans for "sweet memories" and "unwavering support" that he will "cherish forever." White also offers special thanks to coach Ed Orgeron for treating like a son and defensive coordinator Dave Aranda for helping mold him into the Tigers' first Butkus Award winner. He also says he intends to eventually complete the requirements needed to graduate. - AP College Football
10/23/18 - LB Devin White will miss the first half of Saturday's game against Alabama when it was determined LSU had no grounds on which to appeal a controversial targeting call on White. "Discussions with the SEC made clear there is no process for appeal," LSU senior associate athletic director Robert Munson told the New Orleans Times-Picayune. "The suspension will stand."
10/22/18 - LSU linebacker Devin White will miss the first half of the upcoming game against No. 1 Alabama after he was called for targeting in Saturday's contest. White, who entered Saturday's tilt as the SEC's third-leading tackler, was flagged after he hit Mississippi State quarterback Nick Fitzgerald in the fourth quarter of LSU's 19-3 win. Per the NCAA, if a targeting foul "occurs during the second half or overtime of a game, the player is ejected for the remainder of the game and the first half of the next contest." "We probably won't have Devin for the first half, so we're going to have to make some adjustments there," Tigers coach Ed Orgeron said. "It's gonna hurt our football team. But you know, hey, we gotta live with it. That's what it is, that's the rule, and that's what we gotta do, and we gotta get somebody ready." An LSU school administrator confirmed to Sports Illustrated that it cannot appeal the decision. White finished with 10 tackles and a pass breakup on Saturday for LSU, which will have a week off before challenging the Crimson Tide on Nov. 3. Sophomore Patrick Queen is listed as the backup to White, who has 77 tackles this season. - The Sports Xchange
