Safety Craig Loston entered LSU in 2009 as a five-star recruit, the No. 1 rated player at his position in the country and the No. 20 player in the nation overall according to Rivals.com.
A hand injury cost the defensive back the majority of his freshman, but it turns out that rookie campaign wasn’t a total loss.
According to the Baton Rouge Advocate, Loston was granted a medical redshirt for last season and will officially be listed as a redshirt freshman in 2010.
Loston is expected to compete for meaningful playing time in the Tigers’ secondary this season.
