Gillen: Devin White torn on decision
LINK

quote:

The deadline for college underclassmen to declare for the NFL Draft comes this Monday. With three days left to declare, LSU linebacker Devin White has yet to make a decision on his future.

A source tells WVUE-TV FOX 8 White is “torn” on whether to stay at LSU, or go to the NFL.

Numerous NFL mock drafts project White will go in the first round of the 2019 NFL Draft.

White racked up a 123 tackles this season for the Purple and Gold. In his three year career, the linebacker totaled 286 tackles.

Weighing on White is a chance to win a national title at LSU. Clemson defensive stars Christian Wilkins, Clelin Ferrel, and Austin Bryant all passed on the pros last season for a final year in college. It paid off with an undefeated season, and a national championship for the Tigers.


These kids really feel good about this team, that's for sure.

Calculated PR. He’s leaving.

Can’t look like too much of an arse (like greedy)

Yup
regardless of whether or not you think DW should stay or go, regardless of your opinion on O as a head coach, this is a sign the program is getting better and healthier.

If he's saying that he is "torn" it means that he is going to enter the draft. He's softening the blow.

he wouldn't drag it out this long if he wasn't 100% sure on his decision. this could have be "softened" and released at anytime after the bowl game.

I think he should go. He’s torn because he LOVES LSU and his teammates but likely WANTS and KNOWs he should go pro. I just think there’s more to regret staying than going. Add Bryce love to the list of people that made the wrong choice.

Whatever choice he makes will be the right one. I doubt he reads TD but I'm sure he knows this fanbase is behind him 100%.

Baton Rouge news stations and The Advocate have been giving him space, respecting White’s decision to decide for himself. That’s unheard of, that’s how much respect many in Louisiana have for Devin White.

re: Gillen: Devin White torn on decision
I’m not sure why everyone wants him to go. I obvisouly want him back, but I want him to do what’s best for him. Maybe that’s returning for a senior season. He obviously is really torn and it could go either way. The people that are just saying they want him to go without any context doesn’t really make sense. He’s earned every right to go, but why would you WANT an All American leaving your team?

virtue signalling to justify the number of early entrants we have had in the past. nobody wanted to admit we had a problem, so people find ways to rationalize it.

not all the different than addicts.

he may very well leave, but no one would have batted an eye had he announced in the post game he was leaving.

I think he's legitimately conflicted

Cmon dude... any LSU fan wanting him to go is for what they perceive as the best interest for DW.
