Star LSU RB Derrius Guice declares for the 2018 NFL Draft

He announced with a post on social media.

LSU running back Derrius Guice is headed to the NFL.

"Having the opportunity to play for this storied university was truly an honor", Guice said in his video. He had five 100-yard performances this past season, including a 276-yard effort against Ole Miss.

Guice, 5-11, clocked out of the 2017 season with 1,251 yards on 237 carries and 11 touchdowns.

The Baton Rogue native caught two touchdown passes and finished with 122 all-purpose yards (98 rushing, 24 receiving) while earning the game's most valuable player, despite the loss.

With his departure for the draft, Guice ends his LSU career with 3,074 yards, which leaves him fifth on LSU's all-time rushing list behind Faulk, Dalton Hilliard, Charles Alexander and Fournette. Since taking over for Leonard Fournette as the Tigers' starter this past season, it was nearly a foregone conclusion that Guice would enter the draft.

Guice, who shared the workload with Jaguars running back Leonard Fournette in 2016, rushed for 2,638 yards and 26 touchdowns over the past two seasons.

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).

The Baton Rouge Catholic graduate is expected to be one of the top running backs off the board in the upcoming draft.
