Since Ja’Marr Chase opted out of the 2020 season, the LSU offense has taken on a different feel because he was the No. 1 wide receiver not only with the Tigers, but arguably in the country.

But there was also the theory that Chase wasn’t excited to be a part of the offense because it is perceived to have suffered such a drop off from the record-setting unit that helped win LSU the 2019 national championship.

Newly minted No. 1 wide receiver Terrace Marshall has weighed in on those prospects, including his new role.

“I’ve always been locked in,” he said, per Cody Worsham. “That’s the culture around here. We’re always locked in, ready to go. I’m ready to take on whatever responsibility I have to take on. … One thing about us, we’re all self-motivated. We don’t sit around motivating each other all day, because we already know when it’s time to handle our business, we’re going to go out and do that. That’s part of being on track to be a professional.”

There may be questions about production, but from a player’s perspective, Marshall added, “This year’s offense is just as fun as last year’s offense.”

Marshall last year made 46 catches for 671 yards and 13 touchdowns in 12 games.
