LSU defensive lineman Breiden Fehoko is staying in Baton Rouge for his senior season, he announced via Twitter on Monday.
The 6-foot-4, 291-pound starting nose tackle totaled 16 and 1.5 sacks in eight games played his junior season.
Thankful for coaches and mentors like @Coach_EdOrgeron. He’s leading this program in the right direction & I wanna be here for every minute of it. Can’t wait to have this man & the rest of LSU behind me for my senior season! P.S @Rashard_99 we got unfinished business. #ForeverLSU— Breiden Fehoko (@breidenfehoko4) January 7, 2019
LSU has already had two juniors declare for the 2019 NFL Draft — cornerback Greedy Williams and nose tackle Ed Alexander — and Fehoko is trying to get more to finish their senior season with him.
In his announcement, Fehoko urged defensive end Rashard Lawrence to also return for his senior season.
"P.S [Rashard Lawrence] we got unfinished business," Fehoko wrote.
Lawrence started 13 games for the Tigers in 2018, totaling 54 tackles and four sacks. If Lawrence also forgoes the draft, all three of LSU's starting defensive linemen would be returning for the 2019 season.
Redshirt sophomore Glen Logan, who started in 13 games for LSU in 2018, has not yet announced his decision.
