Consider LSU’s wide receiving corps one of the biggest areas of turnovers on the team.
Rising junior wide receiver Trey Quinn announced on Twitter Tuesday that he will transfer from LSU before the 2016 season.
“I would like to send a special thank you out to Louisiana State University and the opportunity they provided me to receive a quality education while playing football,” Quinn wrote.
“To the coaches and players, it’s been a blessing to have built relationships with each and everyone of y’all. And to the fans, I want to thank you for your continued support and love that y’all show. But for now, I have to follow the path the Lord has set out for me. I’m glad I can say I was an LSU TIGER. Forever LSU.”
The Lake Charles, La., native hauled in five receptions for 83 yards last season. He started two games.
The 6-foot, 197-pound wide receiver earned playing time his true freshman season, starting seven of 13 games for the Tigers.
Quinn, a standout at Barbe High School (Lake Charles, La.), holds the national record for career receiving yards (6,566). He also owns the Louisiana state record for career catches (357).
Quinn is the second LSU wide receiver to transfer from the team this offseason along with John Diarse, who landed at TCU.
LSU’s 2016 signing class included three wide receivers: Dee Anderson, Drake Davis and Stephen Sullivan. They, along with incumbents Tyron Johnson and D.J. Chark, are all in the mix to help fill the void left behind by Quinn.
