Jevonte Domond will return to the LSU football team for camp starting Thursday.
The rising junior offensive linemen was arrested in late May and charged with felony domestic abuse with strangulation after an incident with his fiancée. LSU announced then that Domond was suspended indefinitely.
Domond’s case remains “pending,” according to East Baton Rouge district attorney Hillar Moore, but LSU coach Les Miles said Wednesday that Domond has reported for camp.
That’s a break from Miles’ traditional handling of players involved in legal issues. Miles typically waits for cases to be resolved or charges reduced before allowing a player back on the team.
Domond appears to be an exception though.
He transferred to LSU from Glendale Community College before the start of the 2014 season. He played in only one game as a reserve offensive lineman and is not expected to compete for a starting spot in 2015.
