LSU FOOTBALL UPDATE: LSU Running Back Announces That He Is Returning To ‘The Tigers To Play His Sixth And Final Year Of College Football.

John Emery, the running back for LSU, said on Friday that he will be playing his sixth and final season of college football with the Tigers.

Emery registered as a graduate transfer on the NCAA transfer portal in April.

After suffering a season-ending knee injury in LSU’s November victory over Florida, he has been recuperating during this summer. He gained 121 yards on 23 carries in 2023.

Emery began his LSU career in 2019–20 as a five-star recruit out of Destrehan High. Before academic eligibility difficulties disrupted his third season and persisted into the first two games of his fourth, he ran for 566 yards on 114 carries in his first two seasons.

In his career, Emery has gained 1,062 yards and 14 touchdowns with rushes.

Along with Emery, LSU’s roster currently includes Josh Williams, a graduate senior, sophomore Kaleb Jackson, sophomore Trey Holly, and rookie Caden Durham as five scholarship running backs.

After Holly was detained in February in relation to a gunshot in Union Parish that resulted in two injuries, he was placed on indefinite leave of absence.

A grand jury dismissed a second-degree murder attempt accusation against him in April, but they still brought one felony count of unlawful use of a weapon or hazardous instrumentality against him.

Holly will enter a not guilty plea, according to his lawyer.
