LSU’s defensive line took a bit of a hit just days before getting set to open fall camp. LSU defensive end Maquedius Bain took to Twitter Monday afternoon to announce he is leaving the Tigers, thanking LSU for a wonderful experience.
While not a starter on the LSU defensive line, Bain was expected to provide some solid depth in the trenches, as noted by The Advocate. Bain recently switched positions for the Tigers, moving from defensive tackle to defensive end this spring. He was one of the players recently reinstated by LSU head coach Les Miles on Friday, along with quarterback Anthony Jennings and defensive back Dwayne Thomas. Despite being reinstated, Miles suggested in a statement there would be a review for possible in-house punishment. Bain, Jennings and Thomas were all connected to an unauthorized entry incident, but the alleged victim requested for any charges to be dropped.
But there is some good news for LSU’s defensive line concerns. Defensive tackle Mickey Johnson has decided to stay put at LSU after missing the spring practice season. Johnson had been reported to consider a transfer out of the program.
LSU is scheduled to open fall camp later this week.
