LSU will be without former 5-star DB Kristian Fulton again this year after the NCAA upheld a two-year ban on Thursday.
Fulton cheated on a PED drug test, triggering the two-year suspension, which caused him to miss the entire 2017 season. Now, he’ll miss the 2018 season, too, following Thursday’s decision.
On “The Paul Finebaum Show” on Friday, Fulton’s attorney, Don Jackson, ripped the NCAA’s decision, calling it the most ridiculous punishment he’s ever seen:

More appeals are being explored for Fulton, but it doesn’t look good for him or the Tigers at the moment.
Whether he can maintain his form in 2019 and beyond after taking two years off remains to be seen, but it appears he won’t have any other choice. Meanwhile, Jackson will continue to go to bat for his client.
