It appears the hype surrounding Jonathan Giles’ arrival with the Tigers will be his lasting legacy with Ed Orgeron’s LSU program as the former standout Texas Tech receiver may be on his way out the door in Baton Rouge.
The former Red Raider transferred to LSU and sat out the 2017 season due to NCAA transfer rules only to be given the coveted No. 7 jersey last season, which only added fuel to the hype surrounding his debut season in 2018. Despite the massive hype, Giles really struggled to make any impact on LSU’s offense. He finished the season with only 10 catches for 59 yards. He even gave up the No. 7 jersey midseason and switched to No. 12.
Now Giles may be looking to transfer for the second time in his collegiate career, as the senior receiver has entered the NCAA transfer portal according to Shea Dixon of 247Sports. Entering the transfer portal does not guarantee Giles will leave the program, but it is the first step in the process to an eventual transfer.
Before arriving in Baton Rouge, Giles caught 85 passes for 1,313 yards and 16 touchdowns in two seasons of play at Texas Tech.
