BATON ROUGE, La. (WAFB) - LSU wide receiver Devonta Lee has entered the NCAA Transfer Portal and becomes the fifth receiver this off-season to do so. The Tigers have had a total of 12 players enter the portal. Lee announced his decision via Twitter on Friday, Jan. 14.


“Words can’t explain how I felt the first time I walked into Tiger Stadium. I remember it like it was yesterday because it has been my dream to be a Tiger since my early childhood,” Lee said on Twitter. “It will always be a cherished memory. However, it is with a heavy heart that I must acknowledge the time of my departure is at hand.”

Lee also thanked all of the faculty, staff, coaches, trainers and fans in his tweet along with former LSU head coach Coach O, for believing that he could be a Tiger.
