Ed Orgeron discusses Devin White's upcoming decision between senior year and NFL Draft
The LSU Tigers are going to be without key defenders Greedy Williams and Ed Alexander in the Fiesta Bowl and 2019, as both are leaving school early to enter the 2019 NFL Draft.
However, LB Devin White still hasn’t made his decision, and is weighing returning for a senior year despite potentially being a first-round pick.
During his press conference on Wednesday, coach Ed Orgeron said he thinks White wanting to bring championships to LSU will be a big factor in his decision:
Ed Orgeron doesn't know what Devin White will decide about the NFL Draft, but he knows White cares about bringing championships to #LSU.
"I think that's gonna play big in his decision."

White is almost a lock to be a first-round pick, so it would be ridiculous of Coach O to try to get him to stay, as other big-time recruits would see that and question whether they want to head to LSU.
Of course, White could decide of his own accord, and that would be fine. But he shouldn’t face any pressure from his coach about his upcoming life decision.
