LSU freshman DB announces withdrawal, plans to transfer following early enrollment
Michael Daugherty’s time at LSU has come to an end after a brief enrollment. The 2023 freshman signee took to social media on Saturday evening to announce that he has withdrawn from LSU and will enter the NCAA transfer portal.
Daugherty, out of Grayson High School in Georgia, committed to LSU on April 13, 2022. He signed with the Tigers on Dec. 21 and enrolled in classes for the spring semester. As a freshman student-athlete who has already enrolled, Daugherty will be using his 1-time transfer waiver to join a new team. The next window for transfer portal entry opens on May 1.
The LSU roster lists Daugherty at 6 feet, 171 pounds. During his recruitment, Daugherty picked up 43 scholarship offers. On the 247Sports composite rankings, he was rated 3-stars, the No. 52 safety, No. 54 Georgia product and No. 549 prospect overall nationally in the 2023 recruiting class.

LSUSMC………He better go to Georgia. I paid 20 bucks and gave him a beautiful girls number! LOL
One thing seems certain. He’s not playing for LSU!!!!!!!
Honestly, I’m kidding. No clue where he will land. He was extremely coveted for a 3 star! And absolutely nobody develops dbs any better than Georgia does! Still LSU traditionally puts out great dbs as well, but nobody is putting a defense on the field like Georgia does now!!!!! Georgia will have a defence that rivals that 2021/22 defense and better than this last seasons which at times was also elite!!!!!
If we stay healthy, I believe Georgia will have as good of a defensive line as 2021. Maybe the best linebackers we have ever fielded!!! Though we lose some great players in the defensive backfield. Georgia can put 5 stars at every spot. Georgia will have the most speed we have ever had in the defensive backfield this season. Ringo was super fast but so does his potential replacements!!!! Our safeties have blazing speed!!!! Georgia will field the fastest overall defense we ever had!!!!!
BAD NEWS FOR GEORGIA RIVALS…
I know this is bad news for the rivals, but if they come HUNGRY! Then Georgia will be ELITE on defense! If not right away, eventually Georgia will be awesome on defense. Provided we can God willing STAY HUNGRY AND HEALTHY!!!!!
I believe Bobo will do very well this time around. He has always been great with QBs! He was a great, very well thought of OC at Georgia. Enough to get him a HEAD COACHING JOB!!!! From that time on. I believe it was a basic lack of talent that cost him his reputation!!!! South Carolina was trying to start a former student assistant whatever. Then Bobo brought his own QB from his failed gig over and started him at south Carolina!!! EXTREMELY BAD DECISION!!!!
He’s now back in his element. Kirby is head man and Georgia has 3 5 star QBs and possibly the best running game since Gurley, Marshall, Chubb, Swift and you name em!!!!! Georgia still has the best TE room in the country! Even as good if not better than most of the best NFL TE rooms! We have dynamic fast wide receivers and big fast possession receivers to! The only question is how well did Bobo soak in Monk’s play-calling abilities to accentuate his own???? And how much of Stetson Bennett’s leadership has rubbed off on the QB’s???? The O line will be as good and can be better!!!!!!
If Georgia wants to 3PEAT, and if God is willing! Then Georgia has more than enough talent to do it!!!!
NOW LET THE DAWGS OUT AGAIN. BECAUSE IT’S TIME TO HUNT!!!!!!!!!!!! GEORGIA WILL BE RANKED #1 TO BEGIN THE SEASON BECAUSE WE DESERVE IT!!!! YET, IT STILL TAKES WORK, HUNGER AND DESIRE!!!!!!!
PS. It’s a new season and a new team. The last team made some history! This one can re-write the history books!!!!! Everyone knows it’s always Georgia vs the world. We have done well so far!!!! LOL
John 3:16 & after…
They didn’t even write his announcement for him.
Michael Daugherty realizes that his best chances to get to the NFL is to be developed at University of Georgia, the best college football program in America.
He’s not going to Georgia and you’re still clueless.
If he was buried in the depth chart at LSU, he would be even further back at UGA.
If he’s P5 worthy, he needs to go to a team that needs good DBs such as Tennessee or Arky.
TN can have him. We don’t need soft quitters. We need some sharks on defense. This kid is a guppy.
Kid realized he was in over his head during winter workouts, and instead of putting his head down and working harder, he took the easy route and quit. No loss for LSU.
You know this to be true?
Nope, just good ole deductive analysis.
Didn’t think so.
This has got to be a NIL play or he didn’t like the level of competition he stepped into or the commitment required to play at this level.
3* 549 ranked…I’d guess it wasn’t a better NIL deal, just sayin
That guy graduated from HS? Poor kid can’t even read.
If true, then it is on Kelly not to check that out in the first place.
