Two LSU Tigers have been named to the preseason AP All-American First Team in running back Derrius Guice and linebacker Arden Key.
Guice, who joined Penn State’s Saquon Barkley at the running back position, is expected to have a huge season after rushing for 1,387 yards and 15 touchdowns in 2016 while sharing time in the backfield with Leonard Fournette.
After bursting onto the scene last season by breaking the school record for sacks in a season with 12, Key has been recovering from shoulder surgery that occurred in June and could likely miss the season opener against BYU on Sept. 2. Key also missed all of spring practice after taking a leave of absence for “personal reasons.”
