For the second time in a week, LSU junior running back Derrius Guice has given Tigers fans hope that he might play one more season in Baton Rouge.
In an Instagram post Monday night, Guice said his decision on whether to declare early for the NFL draft is “still in the air.”
He said he plans to make his decision after LSU plays Notre Dame in the Citrus Bowl in January 1
Guice described his frustation of playing through injuries during his junior season, one year after leading the SEC in rushing yardage.
“Many say they miss the old Guice, I do too,” he wrote.
Last week, Guice similarly indicated that he hadn’t made up his mind on a possible exit, tweeting “Don’t spoil the surprise” in response to a tweet from LSU punter Zach Von Rosenberg.
Despite his injury issues, Guice is generally viewed as a first-round pick should he elect to enter the draft. If he returns to LSU, he would almost certainly conclude his career as one of the Tigers’ top-five career rushers and could make a run at the second-place mark of Dalton Hilliard, which stands at 4,050 yards.
