LSU early enrollee announces he is leaving the football program

LSU true freshman safety Michael Daugherty has withdrawn from LSU and intends to enter the transfer portal, he announced via his Twitter account on Saturday.

The former three-star recruit in the 2023 signing class from Loganville, Georgia, pledged to the Tigers in December over North Carolina, Arkansas, Auburn and others. The 5-foot-10.5, 174-pound safety early enrolled, but he will be utilizing his free, one-time transfer to go elsewhere.

“Becoming a Tiger was a blessing and I am thankful for the opportunity to meet great coaches, people and teammates,” Daugherty said in his announcement post. “I will always value the memories, teachings and traits of excellence created. Thank you to all the additional personal for the consoulment (sic) that help mold me into a better man.

“I Thank to God for this opportunity, but after carful (sic) consideration and discussions with my parents, respect my decision to withdraw from LSU and enter the transfer portal.”

The No. 549 player nationally coming out of high school, Daugherty will have four remaining years of eligibility at his next stop.
