Derrius Guice (born June 21, 1997) is an unrestricted free agent in the National Football League. He was the only athlete in Southeastern Conference history to have three career games of 250 or more rushing yards while at LSU.
He was picked in the second round of the 2018 NFL Draft by the Washington Redskins, but he only played in five games for them in two years due to various knee injuries, and he was released in 2020 after being accused with domestic abuse offences. In 2021, following allegations that LSU had mismanaged allegations that Guice had mistreated at least four other women during his tenure there, the school disassociated itself from Guice and withdrew all of his statistics from the records.
Guice was the first athlete to join with Top Dawg Entertainment’s sports section, which is well known for representing musical artists like Kendrick Lamar and Schoolboy Q. During his tenure with Washington, Guice was a big lover of video games like the Madden NFL series and Fortnite Battle Royale, which he frequently livestreamed.
Guice started a GoFundMe crowdsourcing campaign for cancer research after visiting the Mary Bird Perkins Cancer Center in June 2018 and raised almost US$21,000 in less than a week. Guice’s brother Derrick was arrested and charged with attempted second-degree murder in November 2016 after being the driver of two gunmen who shot a guy on a porch in Baton Rouge.
