LSU's Devin White: "I don't know if I reached that limit yet"

Remains undecided about declaring for the NFL draft

LSU All-American linebacker Devin White remains undecided on whether he'll skip his senior season and enter the NFL draft. White, who won the Butkus Award which goes to the nation's best linebacker, says he still has some unfinished business.

"I want to make sure that I leave this place better than I found it, such as my legacy, who I stand for, what type of person I want to be remembered. I want everything to be done the right way and I don't know if I reached that limit yet." 
 
White could be a top 10 pick in the NFL draft, if he decides to enter the NFL draft. But the Springhill native says he would hate to leave LSU without winning a championship.
 
"I see all of the videos of (former LSU quarterback) Matt Flynn kissing the trophy, I always be like why can't that be me, I know it can be me, with a lot of work," said White. "That's where why I stand on the NFL, I know I have a lot of great people around here that can help me make a great decision, for me, my family and even for the team, what's best for the team."  
 
LSU's other potential top 10 pick, cornerback Greedy Williams, has already turned pro and he will not play in the Fiesta Bowl against UCF. Coach Ed Orgeron says he's old fashioned and believes a player should complete a season with their team.
 
"He could have opted not to play, but he has a lot of pride, he has unfinished business, he has not told me that he's going out yet," said Orgeron. "I think Devin is the ultimate team player, puts the team first that's why he's one of our team captains. He did what he should do and finish the season with his team."
