LSU baseball player Nick Storz is becoming a dual sport athlete as he joins the football team for the 2020 season. The New York native will be entering his third year at LSU as a part of the baseball team, but he thought it was time to add another sport.
"Given my injury that I sustained here and this year being cut short because of COVID, I feel like this was the best time to make the transition," Storz said. He will have three years of remaining eligibility. One of which is due to a red shirt year and another due to the baseball season being cancelled.
Storz played football throughout high school but shifted his focus on baseball his junior year. He says this was one of his biggest regrets.
Storz will be in the tight end room and says he wants to contribute in whatever way he can--whether it be at tight end or special teams. Storz will still remain a member of the baseball team.
