Former four-star recruit Chasen Hines has already experienced some change at LSU, having moved from defensive tackle to offensive guard this summer. Last week, Hines had another big change last week, one that actually spawned a new nickname for the true freshman.

Hines changed his jersey number from 52 to 57, an apparent reference to Heinz 57. Per The Advocate, head athletic trainer Jack Marucci recommended the number to Hines, who had missed four practices before returning to the team Thursday.

Hines has apparently taken to the new nickname, as his name on Twitter now appears as Hines57.
