As a sophomore for the LSU Tigers, Malik Nabers caught 72 passes for 1,017 yards and three touchdowns. He also rushed the ball one time for five yards and completed two passes for 50 yards and one passing touchdown on two attempts. Nabers figures to play an even larger role next year as a junior and should be a 2024 NFL Draft prospect as well. These charges do not seem to be overly serious with the current details available. Nabers should have this cleared up before the team’s spring game and before the team gets even near the 2023 college football season.
