Add Ware, Wing To LSU’s Departure List

mrsec-breaking-newsRunning back Spencer Ware and punter Brad Wing are the latest LSU football players to declare for the NFL draft.

The school announced that Ware and Wing, along with cornerback Tharold Simon, will leave LSU early. Linebacker Kevin Minter and safety Eric Reid have also declared for the draft.
