BATON ROUGE, LA: Sources have confirmed that on Monday starting left offensive tackle Dare Rosenthal will enter the transfer portal. It's been reported that Rosenthal has decided to leave the team after violating teams rules.
This is a huge blow to a LSU team looking to bounce back from a 5-5 record in 2020. The offensive line was expected to be the strength of the offense in 2021. With recent worries about the development of the second line unit, Coach Orgeron released O-Line coach James Cregg and went out to find a upgrade. That he did, as he would hire Brad Davis who is a Louisiana native, who was currently coaching the offensive line at Arkansas.
Rosenthal was a four star defensive line prospect in the Class of 2018 out of Ferriday High School. He moved to the offensive side of the ball during his first year at LSU while taking a redshirt during his freshmen year. The 6'-7" 327 lbs junior has had a history of off the field problems while at LSU.
The Tigers will now need to fill the void that his departure has opened up on a very good unit. But like Coach O always says... "Next man up!"
