BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -

Sources say there could be a news conference with LSU head coach Les Miles as early as Monday with three underclassmen on the Tigers offense announcing they're headed to the NFL.

Multiple reports from ESPN and CBS have wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. of New Orleans heading to the pros and foregoing his senior year. He was named the nation's most versatile offensive player, earning the Paul Hornung Award.

Reports also link fellow receiver and friend, Jarvis Landry, to the exodus, but a family member said he's not sure Landry will announce the same decision.

The third member of the offense, running back Jeremy Hill, is expected to leave early now that St. Augustine recruit Leonard Fournette has committed to the Tigers.

LSU has not announced a news conference yet for the players' decisions.

Defensive linemen Anthony ‘Freak' Johnson and Ego Ferguson are already reportedly leaving.
