LSU TE announces transfer portal entry after 3 seasons with Tigers

Kole Taylor says his time at LSU has come to an end.

The 3rd-year Tiger will look at playing elsewhere. Taylor shared Thursday that he is entering the NCAA transfer portal.

Taylor has yet to use a redshirt, but the NCAA does not count 2020 against players’ eligibility due to COVID-19’s impact on the season, meaning he has 2 full seasons to play.

Taylor, from Grand Junction, Colorado, signed with LSU over 25 other scholarship offers. At LSU, Taylor played in 32 games, making 7 starts.

As a freshman, he made 7 appearances (2 starts) recording 6 catches for 36 yards. Last season, Taylor made 3 starts over 12 games, logging 6 catches for 68 yards and the first touchdown of his career in LSU’s win over Mississippi State. In 2022, Taylor appeared in all 13 games, making, 2 starts, posting 5 catches for 55 yards.

Taylor may be best remembered for having his shoe thrown in the 2020 Florida game.

  • Ouch. Didn’t expect this one. He had a breakout year and I was looking for bigger things next yr in the passing game as we got a more capable passing QB in either Nuss or Walker. Best of luck to him.

  • Too tall for a TE. Not fast enough for WR. At least at LSU
    I hear he is a great young man. I hope he finds a spot where he can shine.
