LSU redshirt sophomore WR Avery Peterson will transfer to another program.

The pass catcher is Patrick Peterson's younger brother and used to use the last name Johnson. Avery's time at LSU has had its bumps, as he missed the 2013 season due to injury and only played in one contest in 2014. He was considered a four-star recruit out of high school.

LSU junior OL Ethan Pocic "needs to fill out his frame with more pure mass and improve his core strength," advises NFL Media draft analyst Lance Zierlein.

"But his length and athleticism are very intriguing with his full-time move to center," the analyst added. The 6-foot-7, 301-pound Pocic will be a rangy and heady pivot for the Tigers.

LSU junior CB TreDavious White "is a smooth athlete who changes directions quickly and can make plays on the ball," according to Sports on Earth's Matt Brown.

The draft analyst ranks White as the No. 8 corner in the country. "LSU is a defensive back factory," Brown wrote. "Jalen Collins was a second-round pick this spring despite starting only 10 games in three years. One of the reasons why his role was limited is White, who has started 24 games in his first two years for the Tigers." The 5-foot-11, 191-pound White had only two picks and six pass breakups last year, but it's not as if opponents were throwing his way a lot. The junior also averaged 10.9 yards per punt return with a touchdown in 2014.

LSU sophomore S Jamal Adams offers "aggressiveness and hard hits to the Tigers defense," notes Sports on Earth's Matt Brown.

The draft analyst ranks Adams as the No. 7 safety in the country. "The Tigers are always so deep at defensive back that they have a habit of churning out stars before they're even starters," Brown wrote. "As a freshman, Adams started only twice, but he came onto the field in nickel packages and quickly stood out." The 6-foot, 206-pounder had 66 tackles, five tackles for loss and five pass breakups last year. Adams will step into the spotlight this fall with Jalen Collins and Jalen Mills gone.

LSU junior S Jalen Mills "should be set for a stronger senior season as he's grown more comfortable at safety," according to Sports on Earth's Matt Brown.

The draft analyst ranks Mills as the No. 10 safety in the country. "Mills has had a tumultuous career, with NFL hype marred by last summer's battery charge," Brown wrote. "He somewhat surprisingly returned for his senior year, with 39 career starts under his belt, first at cornerback and now at safety." The 6-foot, 194-pound Mills posted 62 tackles, five pass breakups and an interception last year.

LSU senior G/T Vadal Alexander "is best-suited inside on the next level," believes NFL Media draft analyst Lance Zierlein.

The 6-foot-6, 320-pound Alexander is moving back to RT -- the position at which he was a Freshman All-American -- this fall after spending the past two campaigns at LG. Nevertheless, Zierlein included him with interior lineman in his rankings, grading him as the fourth-best in the country. "Despite his massive frame, Alexander is better than expected at locating and successfully engaging targets on the second level," Zierlein wrote. "At the point of attack, Alexander has proven to be too much for many an SEC defensive tackle. Alexander can be a bit of a lunger at times and does too much waist-bending, but the positives far outshine the negatives for this big guy."

LSU coach Les Miles dismissed redshirt freshman DT Trey Lealaimatafao due to his recent arrest.

Lealaimatafao allegedly hit a woman outside a bar when she attempted to stop him from robbing her unconscious boyfriend. After getting arrested, Miles suspended Lealaimatafao. Since then, his staff has "gathered more information and feel it's best for us to part ways." Lealaimatafao, a San Antonio native and former four-star recruit, should draw some interest on the transfer circuit.

In 2014, LSU sophomore RB Leonard Fournette "barely scratched the surface of what he's capable of considering his rare combination of size, strength and speed," observes NFL Media analyst Lance Zierlein.

The 6-foot-1, 230-pound Fournette, the top recruit in 2014, led the Tigers with 1,034 rushing yards last year despite splitting carries. "Reports from LSU indicate we should look for a lighter and quicker Fournette, which should benefit him as he must learn to be more creative and elusive within the first three yards of the line of scrimmage in order to maximize those special traits and hit more big plays," Zierlein wrote. "I'm expecting a big jump forward in 2015." The analyst ranks Fournette as the No. 6 runner in the country.

LSU junior DB Jalen Mills boasts "strength as a tackler and the hands to create turnovers consistently," notes NFL Media draft analyst Chad Reuter.

The analyst believes Mills will be one of the top-40 seniors taken in the 2016 draft regardless of whether the NFL projects him at corner or as a cover safety. The 6-foot-1, 194-pound Mills has started all 38 games during his college career and recorded 62 stops in 2014.

Former Purdue junior QB Danny Etling transferred to LSU.

Tigers OC Cam Cameron attended the same high school as Etling, which may have helped the Tigers' cause. The signal-caller elected to leave Purdue after losing his job midseason last year to Austin Appleby. The former four-star recruit threw for almost 2,500 yards with a 13/12 TD/INT ratio in 13 games for the Boilermakers. Etling must sit out this season due to NCAA transfer guidelines. He will have two seasons eligibility remaining starting in 2016.

LSU junior ILB Kendell Beckwith brings "a combination of size (245 pounds) and explosiveness to the middle of the defense," writes Sports on Earth's Matt Brown.

Beckwith started the final seven games in 2014 and will be a full-time starter in 2015 with Kwon Alexander in the NFL. In part-time action over the past two years, he's logged 88 tackles, 8.5 TFL and 3 sacks. Brown pegs Beckwith as the No. 12 LB in the nation.

LSU freshman defensive end Arden Key and JUCO transfer defensive back Jeremy Cutrer are not enrolled in summer classes.

A terrible day for LSU -- four football players were arrested Thursday -- is followed by more discouraging news. Key, the No. 24 recruit in the ESPN 300, is one of the best incoming edge rushers in the nation. Cutrer, meanwhile, comes from Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College. Cutrer is expected to enroll in classes later this summer, but we haven't been apprised of Key's intentions.

LSU redshirt junior DB Dwayne Thomas and DL Maquedius Bain were arrested along with QB Anthony Jennings for unauthorized entry of an inhabited dwelling.

Thomas and Bain joined Jennings and the three said they were retrieving items stolen from the quarterback. Their entry was forceful and they were subsequently arrested and suspended. Thomas is working back from a knee injury after seeing nickel back duties for LSU.

LSU redshirt freshman DT Trey Lealaimatafao was arrested for simple battery and simple assault.

The details of the bar fight are harrowing. Lealaimatafao is charged with beating another man unconscious followed by hitting the male victim’s girlfriend with a closed fist when she interfered his attempt to dig through the man's pockets. The defensive tackle suffered a "serious arm injury" last summer after punching a window in the school's weight room.

LSU junior QB Anthony Jennings was arrested and charged with unauthorized entry of an inhabited dwelling and has been indefinitely suspended.

Two other players were involved in the incident. Apparently the three claim they were retrieving items that were previously stolen from Jennings and taken to a West Campus apartment. Jennings was the team's starting quarterback last season and was competing with sophomore Brandon Harris for the starting job this offseason. If the charges stand, expect Jennings to miss game action.
