BATON ROUGE -- Senior defensive end Christian LaCouture, senior wide receiver D.J. Chark and junior running back Derrius Guice will join LSU Football Head Coach Ed Orgeron at SEC Football Media Day on July 10, it was announced by the league Wednesday afternoon.

LaCouture, who missed the 2016 season with an injury, returns for his fifth season in Baton Rouge and will wear the traditional No. 18 jersey.

Guice is set to get the bulk of touches in the LSU backfield after setting the school's single-game rushing record in the 2016 regular-season finale at Texas A&M. He tallied 1,387 rushing yards with 15 TDs in 2016, including the longest rushing score in LSU history (96 yards).

Chark emerged as an offensive leader in 2016 and will take over the No. 7 jersey last worn by running back Leonard Fournette.

The annual football media days will be held July 10-13 at the Hyatt Regency Birmingham - Wynfrey Hotel in Hoover, Ala.

The SEC Network and ESPN be on site to bring SEC Media Days to a national audience.
