Trent Domingue did not need much time to find a new team.
LSU’s former placekicker took to Twitter on Sunday afternoon to announce that he’ll be joining Charlie Strong’s Texas program.
The Tigers opted not to renew the Louisiana native’s scholarship earlier this month. Coach Les Miles said that Domingue did not want to give him time to take care of his scholarship, which made it difficult for the program to offer him a grand-and-aid.
Texas is now the home for the former Tiger, who finished 13-of-17 on field-goal attempts in 2015 and was named as a Lou Groza Award semifinalist. Domingue will have one year of eligibility remaining.
LSU is set to host a competition at the position during fall camp next month. Senior Colby Delahoussaye, junior Cameron Gamble and true freshman Connor Culp will also be in the mix for a number of different roles on the team’s special teams unit.
