LSU has been aggressive in addressing the secondary — and the cornerback position, specifically — so far this offseason. It seems the program is poised to add yet another through the portal.
Ohio State cornerback transfer JK Johnson is expected to transfer to LSU. Johnson posted photos from his Baton Rouge visit this weekend, and though he didn’t explicitly commit, he did update his Twitter bio to include the Tigers.

The DeSmet, Missouri, native is a former top 50 prospect, and he appeared in 15 games, totaling 22 tackles in two years. Johnson appeared in all 13 games this season, starting five of them.
His decision to transfer to LSU makes quite a bit of sense. Tigers cornerbacks coach Robert Steeples was Johnson’s head coach in high school at DeSmet Jesuit, and now the pair have reunited on the bayou.
