BATON ROUGE, La. (WAFB) - While Southern’s secondary remains a question mark, there isn’t much doubt in the front seven for the Jags, as the linebackers and defensive line are expected to carry the Blue and Gold defense.

Former Prairie View defensive lineman Jason Dumas adds more juice to the D-line, as well as another transfer in Trey Laing, who had previous stops at South Florida and East Mississippi Junior College. The defensive end has been running with the first team.

In his previous four years at Southern, Jordan Lewis has played nothing but defensive end. But during this fall camp, he has been getting some work in at weakside linebacker.

Defensive coordinator Henry Miller said it is not a permanent move but just a package to show off Lewis’ versatility.
