LSU freshman RB hospitalized, released late Wednesday


The LSU Tigers got a scare Wednesday afternoon at a voluntary workout when Derrius Guice, a freshman running back, collapsed and had to be taken to the hospital.

WBRZ News 2 reported the story and had video of Guice being loaded into an ambulance on Wednesday afternoon. LSU would not confirm who the player was, but video evidence clearly shows that it was the five-star running back out of Catholic High in Baton Rogue.

“Michael Bonnette said the 18-year-old player was taken to the hospital around 5:30 p.m. from LSU’s indoor practice facility,” the report read.

ESPN reported that Guice had been released from the hospital late Wednesday night and was safe at home.

Guice, who was the eight-ranked running back in the nation in 2015, won the MVP Award at the U.S. Army All-American Bowl earlier this year.

LSU opens the 2015 season on September 5 when they host McNeese State.
