LSU’s quarterback battle appears to be down to two. TJ Finley is entering the transfer portal, he confirmed to Jacques Doucet of WAFB 9.

A former Ponchatoula standout, Finley signed in LSU’s 2020 recruiting class. As a true freshman, Finley started five games for the Tigers. He was 80-of-140 passing for 5 touchdowns and 5 interceptions.

Finley impressed in his debut against South Carolina, going 17-of-21 for 265 yards and 2 touchdowns, along with a rushing TD. He struggled mightily, however, against Texas A&M in his fourth game when he was 9-of-25 passing for 118 yards and 2 INTs. Finley’s final appearance was a 14-of-28 outing with a TD pass against Alabama.

Entering the transfer portal does not bind a player to leave the school but Finley appears to be set on continuing his college football career elsewhere.

“I plan on taking a few trips to other schools before deciding where I will be attending,” Finley told Doucet.

Finley appeared to be No. 3 in LSU’s quarterback battle with Myles Brennan, last year’s starter before a season-ending injury, and Max Johnson, who led the Tigers to wins over Florida and Ole Miss, ahead of Finley.
