LSU defensive lineman reportedly decides to enter NCAA transfer portal
LSU is getting ready for Year 1 under new head coach Brian Kelly, and the roster is still a work in progress.
Though the May 1 deadline has passed for players who want to enter the NCAA transfer portal without sitting out a year, players can still decide to transfer.
On Thursday, Matt Zenitz of On3 Sports reported that LSU DL Soni Fonua had decided to explore his transfer options as the 2022 season approaches:

Fonua came to LSU ahead of the 2019 season via the JUCO ranks. He played in 4 games in 2019, but didn’t record any stats. In 2020, he had 7 tackles in 7 games. This past year, he recorded 27 tackles (6.5 for a loss), half a sack and 1 pass breakup.
Where he ends up next remains to be seen. But, without a waiver from the NCAA, he likely won’t be able to play right away at the FBS level.
