Former LSU running back Chris Curry announces transfer destination
In late December, just days after his team’s season ended with a 53-48 win over Ole Miss, LSU running back Chris Curry made the decision to enter the NCAA transfer portal.
Now we know where he will continue his college playing career.
On Wednesday, Curry announced he’s headed to the Pac-12 to play for Utah.
During his three seasons on the field for the Tigers, Curry rushed for 336 yards on 45 carries. He scored four touchdowns on the ground and added four catches for 33 yards via receptions.
