Devonta Lee moved to defense


Recommended Posts

Specifically LB. It was talked about since he signed with LSU. He will bring a lot of athleticism to the positon:


Orgeron likened the move of Lee to linebacker to that of Jacoby Stevens, who made the same move and has thrived on defense.

“He’s at linebacker right now,” Orgeron told reporters Wednesday. “When we watched the state championship, Devonta Lee was the best player on defense on that field. He was playing at receiver. He had been a good receiver here, but we felt that he’d be more of a linebacker — like a Jacoby Stevens type of guy.

“Big and strong, fast, and he wanted to move to defense so he talked to me about it so we moved him.”
