La'el Collins' decision to play his senior season with the LSU Tigers was easily the most notable junior return in purple and gold.
The two-time All-SEC left tackle will continue to build his storied career at LSU by blocking for a fourth, and perhaps fifth in Brandon Harris, LSU quarterback.
Other notable juniors returning for their senior seasons are Jermauria Rasco and Connor Neighbors, and as influential as they will be in LSU's quest for a fourth national title, Collins' return outweighs both of them, which reinforces LSU's position as possessing the best offensive line in the SEC next year.
Undeniably, he is the Tigers' best returning junior, but is he the best overall player (underclassmen included) returning to the squad? Gather 'round and let's discuss.
