Pig Cage announces transfer to LSU

LSU’s secondary has gained more depth with former Nicholls State cornerback Quinton “Pig” Cage announcing his plans on Saturday to transfer to join the Tigers.

Cage is considered a preferred walk-on, meaning that he’s not on scholarship. LSU’s final available scholarship was awarded to former Georgia defensive back Major Burns, who announced on Tuesday that he was headed to Baton Rouge.

Depending on how things shake out, there’s always a chance Cage could be placed on scholarship in 2022.

The Rummel High School product made a name for himself in his only season with the Colonels, earning a place on the HERO Sports Freshman All-American team.

He was also among the 16 finalists for the Jerry Rice Award, awarded to the top freshman at the FCS level.

Cage totaled 30 tackles (11 for loss), three pass breakups and an interception.
