LSU center Ethan Pocic will return to school for his senior season, according to Ross Dellenger of The Advocate.
A former four-star recruit from the Chicago area, Pocic has blossomed into a fine 6-foot-7, 310 pound prospect and will return to an offensive line that is set to lose tackles Jerald Hawkins and Vadal Alexander to the NFL Draft and graduation, respectively. This means that Pocic, who received a second-round grade from the NFL’s advisory board, could wind up changing positions next year.
The good news on that front is that Pocic is capable of playing all offensive line positions, but could remain at center after CBS Sports named him the second-best at the position in the 2017 draft class.
Either way, with star running back Leonard Fournette due back next year and LSU looking to rebound from a 9-3 (5-3 SEC) season that saw the team hit the wall hard after losing to Alabama, Pocic’s return will be welcomed with open arms.
