LSU running back Tre Bradford no longer on the team

·1 min read

Running back is one of the deepest position groups on the roster for LSU, but it will be down one man from that group this fall.

Junior Tre Bradford was removed from the Tigers’ roster, and after the first day of fall camp on Thursday, coach Brian Kelly confirmed that he is no longer with the team. The reason behind his departure remains unclear.

“Tre has been separated from the university,” Kelly said. “There are luckily laws that I can’t get into specifics there but he is no longer on the roster.”

The 6-foot, 210-pound native of Dallas was entering his third season in Baton Rouge. Following his true freshman season in 2020, he briefly transferred to Oklahoma but opted to return to LSU shortly before the 2021 season began.

He played in just one game last fall, taking two carries for 11 yards in the regular season finale against Texas A&M. In two seasons with the Tigers, he had 12 carries for 69 yards in six appearances.

While Bradford’s departure hurts the depth in the backfield, LSU still has a very talented group in John Emery Jr., Armoni Goodwin, Noah Cain and Josh Williams. The running game should be able to take a step forward in Year 1 under Kelly.
