Ex-LSU WR Avery Peterson lands at Cincinnatti


The Cincinnatti Bearcats have had good week in terms of snagging transfers from Power Five Conferences. Jamil Kamara from Virginia announced his plans to transfer there on Tuesday and it was revealed late Wednesday night that ex-LSU wide receiver Avery Peterson would be transferring to Cincinnatti as well.

College Football Talk reported the news of Peterson’s transfer as it became available. Peterson announced his intentions on his Facebook account. ESPN’s Joe Schad confirmed the move via Twitter.

Peterson said in his Facebook message: “[a]fter so much thought and prayers and after talking to the people who I really trust” and that “it really breaks my heart… at the end of the day I have to do [what’s] best for me and my future.”

Peterson is the younger brother of former LSU star and current Arizona Cardinals defensive back Patrick Peterson. If he is anything like his older brother, he will surely be a huge help on the offense for the Bearcats as well as in the special teams game.

Peterson was a three-star member of the Tigers’ 2013 recruiting class. An injury ended his freshman season early and he only played in one game last season.

He, like Kamara, will have to sit out 2015 and will have two years of eligibility left in 2016.
