Retooled LSU defense to face UCF

December 26, 2018

Tyler Shelvin was rated a five-star recruit when he came out of Crowley (La.) Notre Dame High School following the 2016 season.

Everyone has been waiting for Shelvin to make an impact at LSU.

Shelvin was forced to sit out the 2017 season as an academic redshirt, according to NCAA regulations. Shelvin received a scholarship and was able to practice with the Tigers. He simply could not participate in games.

Moreover, Shelvin reported to LSU weighing more than 380 pounds. Getting into the proper condition has been an issue for Shelvin ever since he arrived on campus.
