Sophomore LSU edge rusher enters transfer portal

LSU’s depth at the edge took another major hit on Thursday as sophomore linebacker outside linebacker Zavier Carter entered the transfer portal. The news was first reported by On3’s Matt Zenitz.

Carter, a four-star recruit in the 2021 class, appeared in seven games as a true freshman and 11 this fall as a sophomore. He never made any starts, but he saw significant action against Purdue in the Citrus Bowl thanks to several opt-outs.

He finishes his LSU career with nine total tackles (two for loss), a sack and a forced fumble.

This loss hurts for LSU’s defensive line, but it still returns several edge rushers in Quency Wiggins and Sai'vion Jones. The Tigers also added Bradyn Swinson, an Oregon transfer, and highly touted true freshman Dashawn Womack.
