Big transfer news out of the Southeastern Conference on Thursday as former LSU starting offensive tackle Dare Rosenthal has made the decision to stay in the league.

While many had Baylor, where former LSU defensive coordinator Dave Aranda is currently head coach, as a likely landing spot for Rosenthal, the big man has made the decision to transfer to Kentucky. News of Rosenthal’s decision was broke by Matt Jones of Kentucky Sports Radio.

This offseason, Rosenthal passed on the opportunity to leave LSU early for the 2021 NFL Draft. A little over a week ago, Rosenthal made the decision to leave LSU after reportedly violating school policies that may have resulted in a suspension down in Baton Rouge.

Prior to that news, Rosenthal was projected to start at left tackle for the Tigers.

Rosenthal confirmed the news with the following post:

Rosenthal’s bio listed on the official LSU team site:

LSU’s starting left tackle for 2020 … Has all of the tools necessary to become a dominant SEC offensive lineman … Tremendous size and strength … Trained behind NFL Draft pick Saahdiq Charles for the past two years at left tackle …  Originally signed as a defensive lineman but shifted to the offensive side of the ball as a rookie … Has appeared in five games with three starts during his LSU career.

Appeared in five games with three starts as a redshirt freshman in 2019 … Started at left guard in place of Saahdiq Charles in wins over Northwestern State, Utah State and Mississippi State … Played a total of 229 snaps with career-high 92 snaps coming against Utah State … Played 57 snaps in victory over Mississippi State.

Did not see any game action as a true freshman in 2018.
