LSU kicker Trent Domingue transfers to Texas

Former LSU kicker Trent Domingue has found a new home. After announcing that he would be transferring from Les Miles’ program earlier this month after the university did not renew his scholarship, Domingue has chosen the Texas Longhorns to finish his final year of eligibility.

Domingue announced his decision on social media.

This is an important pick up for the Longhorns as they did not have a placekicker on the roster for the upcoming season.

Domingue had 17 field goal attempts last season and was able to connect on 13 of them. In his career as a kicker, he is 15 of 21 on field goal attempts. The fifth-year senior will also be in charge of the team’s kickoffs this season.

For LSU last season, he averaged 58.4 yards on his 32 kickoffs. He also kicked for seven touchbacks. Domingue was a finalist for the Lou Groza award which is awarded to best place kicker in college football.

The Longhorns kick off their season on Sept. 4 against Notre Dame.
