LSU RB Ridley leaves early, geauxs to NFL
On the same day they “lost” their offensive coordinator to Maryland, LSU also lost their most productive player on that side of the ball.
As expected, running back Steven Ridley announced he was making himself available for the NFL draft. Unexpectedly, he made the announcement on a social media website.
With a video attached.
“Sorry for the poor video quality!!!” Ridley began in a posting to his Facebook wall. “Thanks again to all my coaches, teammates, and Tiger Nation for your support. I’m gonna be keeping you updated on here Stevan Ridley and through Twitter throughout the draft process with behind the scenes videos, pictures, and contests, so make sure you stay tuned!!!”
LSU is expected to make an official announcement regarding Ridley at some point today.
Ridley led the Tigers in rushing this past season with 1,147 yards. His 15 rushing touchdowns were also tops on the team.
