Kristian Fulton, the former Rummel standout, participated in the first practice of the spring. The 6-foot-1, 195-pound cornerback ran through drills in his purple No. 22 jersey as reporters snapped photos and streamed video of a kid who signed with LSU two years ago as the state’s top-ranked prospect.
His participation was not unexpected. In fact, he practiced last season despite not playing a down for reasons that had never been made public. Still, his appearance caused a wave of excitement from a fan base over a player whose status has been shrouded in mystery for several months. The mystery is no more.
