- After redshirting in 2009 to add weight, Mingo ended 2010 as a starter and a part of the Freshman All-SEC team. In 2011 as a full-time starter, Mingo led LSU in tackles-for-loss and was second in sacks. This helped Mingo land a spot on the All-SEC team, and he looks to reach superstar status in 2012 on a loaded Tiger defense.
