Former LSU receiver Odell Beckham Jr. sent a gift of headphones to each of the championship-hopeful Tigers while encouraging them in a note that "this is your opportunity to leave behind your legacy."
No. 1 LSU meets No. 3 Clemson in the CFP National Championship Presented by AT&T on Monday night (ESPN, 8 ET) at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans.
Each LSU player received a set of Beats on Thursday. Beckham has a marketing deal with the company.
Beckham sent an accompanying note to the players, reading: "This is your opportunity to leave behind a legacy and write yourself into the history books, not just as the undefeated national champions but as legends. You're here for a reason, now make it count. Best of luck men! #geauxtigers":
Beckham, who was born in Baton Rouge, played at LSU from 2011 to 2013. In his freshman year, the Tigers went to the BCS National Championship game, losing to Alabama 21-0.
When Beckham reached out to LSU about the gifts, the school contacted the NCAA to make sure the gifts would be compliant under the rules, an LSU official told ESPN.
