Former Tigers linebacker DeMario Tolan is sticking in the conference as the transfer announced his commitment to Auburn after entering the portal last week. Tolan signed with the new group of Tigers on Sunday morning.
Tolan took a visit to Auburn late last week.
A four-star recruit who ranked as the No. 204 overall player in the country in the 2022 class, per the 247Sports Composite, Tolan saw quite a bit of action in the linebacker rotation as a true freshman. The Orlando native appeared in 12 games and notched 10 solo tackles, and he was expected by many to play a significant role in the rotation next season.
His decision to enter the portal came as a surprise and leaves LSU a bit thin at linebacker heading into 2023 as he was vying for increased playing time by the end of the season.
