Former LSU forward Josh LeBlanc announces transfer destination
Ahead of the 2020-21 season, the LSU Tigers brought in former Georgetown forward Josh LeBlanc via the NCAA transfer portal.
This past season, he made limited contributions, appearing in 25 games and making 1 start. In those games, he averaged 3.2 points, 4.4 rebounds and 1.0 steals per contest.
But, it looks like his time in Baton Rouge is over. After entering the transfer portal again recently, LeBlanc will reportedly head to UAB for the upcoming season (via college basketball insider Jon Rothstein):

UAB is coached by Andy Kennedy and plays in Conference USA. The Blazers went 22-7 last season, but did not make the NCAA Tournament.
Can LeBlanc help the team take the next step forward this year? We’ll find out starting this winter.
