LSU DB Kelvin Joseph comments on his decision to enter NCAA transfer portal
If you missed the news from Baton Rouge, LSU sophomore defensive back Kelvin Joseph has entered the NCAA transfer portal. This news was first reported by Matt Zenitz of AL.com before being confirmed by multiple outlets.
During his freshman season in Baton Rouge, Joseph saw the field in 11 games for the Tigers but sat out the team’s appearance in the Fiesta Bowl after being suspended by Ed Orgeron. The bowl game suspension came following a violation of team rules. Joseph made 12 tackles and defended a single pass during his freshman season for the Tigers.
Now it appears he is on his way out of town following a promising debut season. However, Joseph’s decision to enter the NCAA transfer portal does not mean he cannot return to the team. It does, however, allow other programs to openly recruit him to leave LSU.
Following the news of his decision to enter the NCAA transfer portal, Joseph issued this comment on Twitter:
“If you don’t know my situation please 🤫 and don’t judge”
Joseph was a top 50 recruit and a top five safety prospect in the 2018 recruiting cycle out of Baton Rouge’s Scotlandville Magnet High School.
He then followed up his first comment with a second comment:
“lol I was born to compete 😏”
