LSU wide receiver Malachi Dupre has refuted reports that he will be going pro after the season, saying he is still undecided.


It is that time of the year where the question of “will you leave or return” is asked of college players more than anything regarding their preparations for upcoming bowl game. Thus, it is not surprising that the topic came up to LSU wide receiver Malachi Dupre, who had reportedly decided to enter the 2017 NFL Draft.

“I didn’t say that. I didn’t tell anyone that,” Dupre said. “That report is not true. I’m undecided.”

That could be good news for LSU fans, as the arrival of new offensive coordinator Matt Canada will hopefully turn the Tigers’ passing game, including the 6-foo-4, 195 pound Dupre, into an explosive target next season.

Dupre caught just 34 passes for 454 yards and three touchdowns during the regular season, largely hamstrung by the ineffectiveness of both Brandon Harris and Danny Etling at the quarterback position. As a sophomore in 2015, Dupre had double the touchdown catches with six and 698 yards receiving.

This season with Pittsburgh, Canada turned the Panthers into a team that could spread the field, with three touchdown passes more than 74 yards long, and turning wide receivers Jester Weah (795 yards, nine touchdowns) and Scott Orndoff (558 yards, five touchdowns) into threats.

The Tigers will be set at the running back position next fall, with Derrius Guice back, and the wide receiver corps could be a strength as well if Dupre returns. The only question is who will be the one lining up under center for Canada’s offense, with Harris and Etling both returning and incoming freshman commitments Lowell Narcisse and Myles Brennan expected to compete for the starting position.
