Since December, nine players have decided to transfer out of LSU, including wide receivers Trey Quinn and Tyron Johnson and quarterback Anthony Jennings. On Monday, that number was made an even 10 as offensive lineman George Brown Jr. announced his intentions to leave the school.
His father spoke with The Advocate‘s Ross Dellenger on Monday and confirmed his decision to leave LSU. He said that his son had no hard feelings against the school and felt it was better for his playing career to transfer out of Baton Rouge.
“He felt better to go with another staff and go play somewhere else. He’s not mad at LSU,” Brown Sr. said.
“LSU is a great school, great place to be. We love LSU. I’m not the one playing. My son decided he wanted to be somewhere else. He didn’t feel that was the place for him. We don’t have an issue. We love coach Miles and all of the staff there. He just decided that he would take his talents other places.”
Right now, the redshirt freshman is looking at staying at the FBS level by considering Miami, Michigan State, Penn State and UCLA as possibly landing destinations. He would have likely have to sit out the 2016 season and have at least three years of eligibility left beginning in 2017.
Brown was a three-star recruit for the Tigers in 2015 and was the No. 26 player in the state of Ohio.
