BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) — LSU says safety Eric Reid, cornerback Tharold Simon, running back Spencer Ware and punter Brad Wing say they are entering the NFL draft.
Those decisions mean the Tigers will lose at least three defensive regulars, with linebacker Kevin Minter also having informed the school he’d be leaving this week.
Reid and Minter both were named AP second-team All-America for 2012.
Simon was a starter who had four interceptions this season.
Ware has been a productive running back for the Tigers for three seasons, scoring 12 career touchdowns and also passing for a score.
Wing, an Australian, has been among the top college punters the past two seasons, but was suspended for an undisclosed violation of team rules during LSU’s 25-24 loss to Clemson in the Chick-fil-A Bowl.
