Editor's note: This week we continue to break down each of LSU's position groups as we prepare for the Tigers to open preseason practice in early August. After examining the offensive positions last week, today we focus on the linebackers.
BATON ROUGE, La. - Once viewed as a potential impact player on LSU's defensive line, Travonte Valentine has left the program without playing a down. LSU sports information director Michael Bonnette confirmed Wednesday that the 350-pound defensive tackle is "no longer part of the LSU football team.
BATON ROUGE, La. -- One of the leading questions for LSU's spring practice is how the Tigers' defense might function differently with Kevin Steele as defensive coordinator. We probably won't have an answer there until a few weeks into the season -- LSU has no incentive to reveal anything before then -- but here's a small twist.
With three new assistant coaches and four early enrollees in the fold, LSU is scheduled to open spring practice on Saturday. As is the case each spring, there are a number of positions that are up for the grabs for the Tigers.
BATON ROUGE, La. -- LSU's coaching staff had not fully completed its 2015 signing class before 2016 was already front-and-center in the coaches' minds. Only three days after national signing day, LSU will stage its "Boys From the Boot" recruiting weekend where it will host many of the state's up-and-coming prospects -- so getting the state's top talent on campus this weekend became an immediate top priority.

BATON ROUGE, La. -- LSU got one more true freshman -- linebacker Clifton Garrett -- onto the field in Saturday's 31-0 win against Louisiana-Monroe, meaning the Tigers have now played 17 of their 23 true freshmen.
BATON ROUGE, La. -- When he and his teammates traveled to Houston last weekend, LSU safety Jalen Mills had no idea whether he'd actually play against Wisconsin. It wasn't until the final moments before his team took the field that Tigers coach Les Miles informed the junior safety of his decision.
BATON ROUGE, La. -- He's not a native-born Louisianan -- in fact, he's 900 miles from his Illinois home -- but LSU freshman Clifton Garrett said he gets chills when he thinks about his first Saturday night in Tiger Stadium.
