You can cross Tre Watson off LSU’s wish list. Watson, who has one year of eligibility remaining after playing three seasons at Cal, was contemplating a move to LSU. The running back recently revealed Texas was his choice.
On the field, this means a couple of things for the Tigers. First, Clyde Edwards-Helaire is going to start at running back. Secondly, it provides an opportunity for freshman Tae Provens as a potential third-down back, which is what Watson’s role would have been had he not started.
