Matt Stamey-USA TODAY Sports

That announcement coming via a heartfelt video message from the running back and Baton Rouge-native on Wednesday. He was even better as a sophomore, piling up 1,387 rushing yards and 15 touchdowns.

Guice announced via Twitter that he will forgo his senior season at LSU and enter the 2018 NFL Draft.

Fittingly, LSU's No. 5 is the Tigers' fifth underclassman headed to this year's NFL Draft. "Having he opportunity to play for this storied university was truly an honor". In sharing time with Fournette, Guice tallied 1,493 total yards and 16 touchdowns at a clip of 7.6 yards per rush back in 2016. He finished with 2,638 yards and 26 rushing touchdowns over his final two seasons in Baton Rouge.

His departure along with the departure of senior backup Darrel Williams means the top returning rusher for the Tigers is senior-to-be Nick Brossette, who rushed for 78 yards this season. He had five 100-yard performances this past season, including a 276-yard effort against Ole Miss.

His 6.53 yards per carry average also breaks Fournette's record (6.22) and places Guice second in SEC history (minimum of 400 carries) behind only Auburn's Bo Jackson (6.62 yards per carry). As a prospect, Guice ranks as the No. 3 running back on the position board of ESPN's Mel Kiper Jr., trailing only Penn State's Saquon Barkley and Stanford's Bryce Love.
