LSU cornerback Kevin Toliver is going pro.
Toliver announced this afternoon that he will forgo his senior season and enter the 2018 NFL Draft.
Toliver was a five-star recruit in the 2015 class out of Jacksonville (Fla.) Trinity Christian. The No. 9 player in the country, Toliver committed to LSU during his sophomore year of high school and remained loyal.
“I have bled purple and gold since LSU offered a scholarship my freshman year of high school and will forever be a proud Tiger,” Toliver’s statement reads in part.
