Bucs linebacker Kwon Alexander tied with former LSU teammate Deion Jones for the most combined tackles on the NFC with six each. Jones had the most solo tackles. What's funny though, is Jones wouldn't take former LSU wide receiver Jarvis Landry to the ground. Alexander told me that they did have a gentlemen's agreement about not taking down the LSU guys.

LSU held an elite junior day on Saturday with some of their top 2019 targets on campus. That included plenty of the top Louisiana prospects with Kardell Thomas, Devonta Lee, Donte Starks, Noah Cain, Ishmael Sopsher and others.

Most improved players from 2016 recruiting class

Adam Rittenberg ESPN Staff Writer 

SOURCES: Matt Canada has emerged as the leading candidate to become Maryland's offensive coordinator, and a deal could be finalized soon.
