LSU among many Power 5 programs in hot pursuit of veteran Louisiana DB transfer
The Tigers are one of several Power Five programs throwing its hat in the ring for the recruitment of experienced Louisiana defensive back transfer Trey Amos.
Since entering the transfer portal Monday, Amos has heard from programs all across the country and has announced 14 offers on his Twitter account. LSU is among them.
The Tigers have been very active in adding defensive backs through the transfer portal this cycle with pickups like JK Johnson, Denver Harris and Duce Chestnut. Adding Amos would be the icing on the cake.
A three-year player for the Ragin’ Cajuns, he started 10 of the 11 games he played in last year, finishing a career season with 35 total tackles and eight pass breakups.

The Tigers will face stiff competition in the race for Amos. Among a star-studded offer list is Florida and his former head coach in Billy Napier as well as Alabama, which seems to have some momentum right now. We’ll see if Kelly can land another Louisiana player through the transfer portal in the New Iberia native.
