LSU WR Trey Palmer to enter the transfer portal

·2 min read

Not all of the news coming out of Baton Rouge today is positive. After Myles Brennan announced his return and Miles Frazier transferring to LSU, we have the news of wide receiver Trey Palmer.

According to Matt Fortuna of The Athletic, the talented return man is putting his name in the transfer portal. Palmer joined the Tigers in the 2019 recruiting cycle. He was the No. 18 wide receiver and No. 6 recruit from the state of Louisiana.

In three seasons with LSU, Palmer caught 41 passes for 458 yards and three touchdowns. All of his touchdown receptions came this season as a starting receiver in Jake Peetz’s offense. He was also a return specialist each season with one punt return and one kickoff return for touchdowns in that time.

LSU now has three wide receivers in the transfer portal with Palmer joining Koy Moore and Deion Smith. With speculation that Kayshon Boutte could be next, it will really put a strain on Brian Kelly’s team next season. They will need to find receivers to make an impact on the team.

Some of the WRs currently on the team:

  • Jack Bech

  • Brian Thomas Jr

  • Kayshon Boutte

  • Malik Nabers

  • Jaray Jenkins

  • Jontre Kirklin

  • Devonta Lee

  • Chris Hilton Jr

While there are plenty of bodies, their experience is limited for most of the group. Keeping Boutte in the mix will be priority No. 1 if he does indeed look to head out of Baton Rouge.

The offensive coordinator and wide receivers coach hires will be crucial.
