LSU running back Guice opts for NFL

LSU running back Derrius Guice said Wednesday that he is leaving the school to enter the NFL Draft.

Guice was expected to forgo his season season and he announced his decision via Twitter.

"Nothing will ever replace LSU in my heart because you had a big part in raising me from a young boy to becoming a man. To my family, thank you for everything. I promise not to let you down. I promise I'm going to come back and get my degree one day," Guice said in a video message he posted.

Guice will follow in the footsteps of former Tigers running back Leonard Fournette, who exited the program a year ago and wound up the No. 4 overall pick of the Jacksonville Jaguars.

The 5-foot-11, 220-pound Guice rushed for 1,251 yards and 11 touchdowns this past season. He was even better as a sophomore, piling up 1,387 rushing yards and 15 touchdowns.

Guice, projected as a first-round pick, set school records for the longest run (96 yards) and rushing yards in one game (285).

A native of Baton Rouge, La., Guice leaves with a career average of 6.527 yards per carry, also an LSU record.

Rob Rang, a senior analyst for NFLDraftScout.com, rated Guice as a top-10 pick before his injury-plagued junior season and still has him ranked in the top 25.
