The LSU Tigers football team had plenty of cause for optimism heading into the offseason, after demolishing Georgia Tech in the Chick-Fil-A Bowl to end the 2008 season.
Jordan Jefferson looked every bit the role of a competent starting quarterback and showed some serious upside for the Tigers with his physical tools from under center.
The Tigers have even more cause for optimism, as summer workouts come to a close and fall practice starts up this week. Jefferson has added some size and weight and figures to be an even bigger force during the 2009 season.
"He's bigger and stronger than he's been," head coach Les Miles said at the SEC Media Days. "In my opinion, the experience that he had in his true freshman year will benefit him tremendously."
