Derrius Guice out of hospital after reportedly losing consciousness

Prized LSU freshman running back Derrius Guice has been released from the hospital, a source told ESPN's Brett McMurphy.

Guice lost consciousness Wednesday, according to a report in the Baton Rouge Advocate. The newspaper, citing two sources, reported that Guice had felt sick earlier Wednesday and then traveled to LSU's practice facility. He was not working out when he lost consciousness.

An LSU spokesman confirmed that a player was hospitalized Wednesday but did not reveal his identity or for what.

Guice was the eighth-ranked running back and No. 96 overall in the ESPN 300 for the class of 2015.

A native of Baton Rouge, Louisiana, he was named MVP of the U.S. Army All-American Bowl after racking up a record 153 receiving yards and two touchdowns on just two receptions.
