Outstanding cornerback will be back for the Tigers this year.

LSU got another huge commitment from one of its underclassmen to return in 2019, with junior cornerback Kristian Fulton announcing his plan to play one more year:

Fulton played just 10 games for the Tigers this season, but was a strong second to All-American Greedy Williams, racking up 25 tackles and 10 pass break-ups, including an diving interception against Georgia.

A lower-leg injury suffered against Arkansas cost him the remaining three games of the season, but that injury also likely played into his decision to return. At 6-foot, 192 pounds he has the kind of size that NFL teams love, and with just a limited resume due to his one-year suspension in 2017, he surely has a lot to play for personally in 2018. He’ll be a preseason all-star team candidate, and should be one of the best cornerbacks in the country in the coming season.
