LSU starting offensive lineman Dare Rosenthal expected to enter NCAA transfer portal
LSU is set to return more experienced players in the trenches than any other program in the Southeastern Conference next season but the team’s projected starting offensive line looks to be taking a hit following some breaking news out of Baton Rouge.
The team’s projected starting left tackle Dare Rosenthal is expected to enter the NCAA transfer portal “following a violation of school policies that could cost him his 2021 campaign for the Tigers,” according to Jimmy Smith of TigerDetails.
Rosenthal passed on the opportunity to leave school for the 2021 NFL Draft this offseason. He played in six games last season for LSU but missed time due to off-the-field issues.
At one point during 2020, Rosenthal left the program before returning to the program.
LSU was set to return all five starters on the offensive line and all four starters on the defensive line in 2021.
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.
REDSHIRT FRESHMAN SEASON (2019)
