It has been another wild and wacky turn of events for another former LSU Tiger that was part of the 2020 recruiting class. After the on again off again situation surrounding Arik Gilbert, who eventually landed at Georgia, we have former running back Tre Bradford.
Following the spring camp, the former four-star running back entered the transfer portal in early June. Just two weeks later it was announced that he would enroll and play for the Oklahoma Sooners. Listed as the No. 3 running back for OU behind a returning Kennedy Brooks and Tennessee Vols transfer Eric Gray.
We now have a report that Bradford has left the Sooners. It was reported by OU Daily, the student newspaper.

According to the report, Bradford has missed the last two practices for Oklahoma. They have been hit with a lot of movement at the position with Marcus Major being ruled ineligible and the dismissal of Seth McGowan and Mike Henderson. No reports have suggested as to why the former Tiger signee is now leaving the program.
Given his familiarity with the running back room, could Tre Bradford find his way back to Baton Rouge with LSU? This is pure speculation but it would make sense if he suddenly had a change of heart. Bradford was expected to be the No. 3 for Oklahoma, but with the injury concerns surrounding Tyrion Davis-Price and John Emery Jr, he could see more playing time this season with the Tigers.
Last season Bradford carried the ball 10 times for 53 yards as a freshman. We will provide updates to this story as they are made available.
