A trio of Tigers will play in the Reese’s Senior Bowl in Mobile next week.
Wide receiver DJ Chark accepted an invitation to play in the annual senior showcase last month. He’ll now he joined by running back Darrel Williams and defensive lineman Christian LaCouture, who were added to the roster this week.
Chark was an All-SEC selection this season and finished as LSU’s leading receiver with 40 catches for 874 yards and three touchdowns. He’s the only player in school history rushing and receiving touchdowns of 75 yards or longer and returned two punts for touchdowns this season.
Williams showcased his versatility as both a bruising runner and capable pass catcher coming out of the backfield this season. He became the only Tiger ever to record 100 receiving yards and 100 rushing yards in a single game, LSU’s 40-24 win at Ole Miss.
LaCouture came back strong this season after a torn ACL cost him the entire 2016 campaign. He finished his four-year career with 152 tackles, 16.5 tackles for loss and 10.5 sacks in 50 games.
