This time, it’s LSU cornerback Kelvin Joseph who is deciding to go in a different direction.According to Matt Zenitz of AL.com, Joseph has entered his name into the transfer portal following his freshman season. He had 12 tackles and one pass defended last season.Coming out of high school in 2018, Joseph was a four-star prospect ranked No. 42 in the nation by 247Sports. He was the No. 5 safety prospect in the country, and the No. 2 prospect from the state of Louisiana.No favorite for his transfer has been identified as of writing. LSU cornerback Kelvin Joseph, a top-50 player nationally in the 2018 recruiting class, has entered the NCAA transfer portal, per source.Had 12 tackles last season as a freshman.— Matt Zenitz (@mzenitz) May 20, 2019It’s certainly a surprising loss for the LSU Tigers, who have garnered the well-earned nickname “DBU” in the past few years for their stellar defensive backs that have transitioned into NFL stars.Patrick Peterson, Tyrann Mathieu, Eric Reid, and Jamal Adams have all gone from LSU stardom to NFL stardom in the past few years.Fortunately, DBU probably won’t be feeling the sting of Joseph’s loss for too long. The No. 1 cornerback in the nation for 2019 – Derek Stingley – has already enrolled at LSU. Class of 2020 top-two cornerback Elias Ricks is also on his way to LSU.Suffice it to say, the defensive back pipeline doesn’t appear to be drying up anytime soon.last_img read more
