New LSU football players to watch in 2016

Saivion Smith (CB)

Smith is a five-star cornerback who enrolled early on campus and has already made his presence known. The St. Petersburg, Florida, native snagged an interception in LSU’s spring game and will look to carry on the “Defensive Back University” title in Baton Rouge.

Devin White (LB)

White was another early enrollee this spring and one that may make the biggest impact his first year on campus. The 6-foot-1, 255-pounder played on both sides of the ball at North Webster High but should plug right in as linebacker this fall.

Rashard Lawrence (DT)

Lawrence’s 6-foot-3, 310-pound frame makes him a monster in the middle in the defensive line. The five-star prospect out of Neville High is the nephew of former LSU standout Oliver Lawrence, who played linebacker for the Tigers from 1985-1989.

Kristian Fulton (CB) 

Fulton was LSU’s highest-rated prospect in this class, ranked as the No. 2 cornerback in the country and the top player in Louisiana. The ball-
hawking defensive back finished his prep career with a school-record 22 interceptions at Rummel.

Drake Davis (WR)

Davis may be the most electrifying prospect to join the Tigers this fall. He quit football for a year to pursue soccer before switching back to football his senior year and earning a consensus 4-star status. Davis clocked in a 4.38 forty-yard dash in spring drills, showing off his freak athleticism.
