The LSU Tigers special teams got a boost on Monday when former Notre Dame punter Jay Bramblett committed to the team. He likely will replace Avery Atkins after he announced he would leave following the season.
Bramblett punted for a total of 6,792 yards in three seasons, which breaks down to an average of 41.4 yards per punt. This past season he posted an average of 43.8 yards per punt this past season. He follows special teams coordinator Brian Polian to the Bayou.
Atkins averaged 42.6 yards per punt this past season for LSU. The big question is can Bramblett also throw? We saw Atkins throw on a couple of fake punts this past season. The Tuscaloosa native was the No. 1 punter coming out of the 2019 class. Bramblett entered the transfer portal on Jan. 2, 2022, and just two weeks later announced he would come to LSU.

He becomes the ninth transfer to commit to the Tigers in the 2022 class. Brian Kelly continues to stockpile transfers for his team for the upcoming season.
