A day after LSU defensive lineman Breiden Fehoko announced his plans to return, linebacker Michael Divinity followed suit with an announcement on Twitter that he will return for his senior season.
And he does so with big plans and intentions.
Divinity became a do-it-all guy in the second layer of LSU’s defense, filling in where needed, especially after K’Lavon Chaisson’s injury in the Tigers’ season-opening game against Miami.
He finished the season with 54 tackles and 10.5 tackles for loss including a team-high five sacks for 27 yards. He also nabbed an interception with a 31-yard return against Mississippi State.
With that experience under his belt, the Tigers now have potential for two dangerous pass rushers next season with Divinity taking one side and presumably a healthy Chaisson taking the other.
With the deadline to declare for the draft right around the corner (Jan. 14), the Tigers now must wait on the decisions of defensive lineman Rashard Lawrence, who put on a show against UCF with five tackles and two tackles, and Devin White, a projected first-round pick in the NFL Draft if he decides to part ways with LSU.
