The LSU Tigers are looking to have another successful season in 2016 as they want to get back into the top tier of the SEC. They have one of the best recruiting classes and a good number of starters returning to help them do just that.
The only thing the Tigers have to worry about now is that one of the most talented players in the secondary will be out of action for most of spring practices. This is because cornerback Kevin Toliver underwent surgery to fix some nagging shoulder problems.
Toliver played most of the 2015 season with shoulder issues and recently underwent surgery to take care of them. Luckily for the Tigers, Toliver is already in physical therapy and should miss no time in the 2016 season.
“Toliver is well into the rehabilitation process to repair the injury,” the New Orleans Times-Picayune writes, adding “but may be withheld from much of LSU’s physically demanding spring workout regiment, including the LSU Spring Game set for April 16.”
Toliver is expected to be ready ahead of the start of summer camp in early August. He played a big role for the team last year and is expected to play an even bigger one with the departure of Jalen Mills and Rashard Robinson to the NFL.
During his freshman season, Toliver, a five-star member of the Tigers’ 2015 recruiting class, recorded 28 tackles and one interception on the year.
