Looks like the suffering at LSU will continue, as a source has reported that LSU freshman tight end Arik Gilbert has quit the team and has entered himself into the NCAA transfer portal after missing practice on Monday...
Gilbert, a five-star signee out of Marietta High School, located in Marietta, Georgia, was named the 2020 National High School Gatorade Player of the Year. The first tight end to ever win the award..
Reports have surfaced that since arriving at LSU, Gilbert has dealt with homesickness.. LSU
is hoping to change his decision and keep him in the purple and gold.
What a devastating blow it would be to the LSU football program if Gilbert chooses not to return. Last week, team leading receiver Terrace Marshall Jr. decided to opt out the remainder of the season to prepare for the 2021 NFL Draft.
