LSU has always been known for having dominant defensive backs. This year has been no different with great players like Tre’Davious White, Jamal Adams, and Donte Jackson.
One player that has been an integral piece for the Tigers the last few years is Rickey Jefferson. The junior cornerback and younger quarterback of former Tiger quarterback Jordan Jefferson didn’t make a huge impact this year, but he has been on the field and has helped them a ton.
He announced on Twitter that he will return for his final season for the Tigers.
This will certainly be good news for Les Miles as he will be returning as the head coach for the Tigers in 2016. Jefferson has been a big help for the Tigers defensively and he will likely be helping them out next year as well.
