After LSU picked up 25 freshmen from the high school signing class, Brian Kelly announced that there would be seven more additions via the transfer portal.
The group includes four defensive linemen, two cornerbacks, and a wide receiver.
Two of the transfers were two of the nation’s highest recruited players in the country in WR Aaron Anderson (Alabama) and CB Denver Harris (Texas A&M). The other cornerback that was picked up via the transfer portal was a FCS All-American from Southeastern Louisiana University in Zy Alexander.
The Tigers also got a big boost at another position of need, which was the defensive line as four defensive linemen made the official decision to transfer to LSU. Those guys in the trenches on the defensive side of the football are Jordan Jefferson (West Virginia), Jalen Lee (Florida), Paris Shand (Arizona) and Bradyn Swinson (Oregon).
LSU Head Coach Brian Kelly is excited about these seven additions as they all will play a major role to sure up some major positions.
““We are excited to welcome these seven outstanding football players to our team,” Kelly said. “This group helps fill some immediate needs for our team, especially on the defensive line. Our staff did a great job of vetting each of these players to make sure they fit our program, not only from an ability standpoint, but more importantly, ensuring they are high character young men who are committed to academics.“
“It’s important that when you add transfers to your roster, they have the traits we are looking for as we continue our mission to Graduate Champions. Along with the outstanding group of freshmen we signed on Wednesday, we feel with this group of young men will significantly improve our roster for the present and the future of LSU football.”LSU Head Coach Brian Kelly
