This is the second in our three-part blog series previewing LSU football spring practice, now set for a Saturday start.
Keep An Eye On Him gives you five players to watch during spring drills.
Spring practice coverage
Christian LaCouture, sophomore DT
- Anthony Johnson’s backup last season, LaCouture played more than any No. 2 on the defensive front. He’s a former four-star prospect from Nebraska who enrolled early last season and will be heading into his second spring practice.
Terrence Magee, senior RB
- The forgotten man, right? Everyone’s pointing to the massive loss of running back Jeremy Hill and the signing of the nation’s No. 1 recruit, St. Augustine tailback Leonard Fournette. But, hey, there’s Magee, who had 626 yards last season. That’s an average of 7.2 a pop.
Anthony Jennings, sophomore QB
- The tall, speedster might be in the spotlight this spring more than any other. He finished the season having two see-saw games in replacement of Zach Mettenberger: a 99-yard, game-winning drive against Arkansas and then a 7-for-19 outing in the Outback Bowl.
Kendell Beckwith, sophomore LB
- For a guy with so much hype entering last season, we saw little of Beckwith. His time was split between defensive end and outside linebacker, but he’s been moved full-time to linebacker, a unit that needs some help from the 6-3, 245-pound specimen.
Ed Paris, freshman S
- An early enrollee, Paris enters as a blue-chip prospect from Texas who can help an uncertain area. Paris, ranked as the No. 3 safety in the nation, can get a leg up on what’s expected to be a hot competition in the fall at safety.
