The Tigers bring in 36 newcomers for next season, look to evaluate the roster during spring camp before filling final slots.

Head Coach Brian Kelly and LSU have dominated the offseason to this point. After reeling in 25 signees, 13 of which have enrolled early, and 11 transfers, the trajectory of this program is trending positively.

With 36 newcomers, spring camp is where the magic will happen. It’ll be important to dissect the roster over the next few months in order to fill needs during the second transfer portal window in May.

As it currently stands, LSU will have five or six scholarships remaining where Kelly can hit the second transfer portal window to fill out the roster. 

It’s safe to say this program is in great position moving forward, but continuity on defense will be a major talking point this offseason.

Let’s evaluate the roster. Who’s in? Who’s out? Who can make an immediate impact on this program moving forward?

Here’s a list of who the Tigers brought in, which newcomers are on the roster for spring ball and a dive into where the former Tigers landed:

The Additions (Transfer Portal)

CB Darian “Duce” Chestnut - Sophomore - Syracuse

CB JK Johnson - Sophomore - Ohio State

CB Zy Alexander – Junior – Southeastern Louisiana

CB Denver Harris – Sophomore – Texas A&M

WR Aaron Anderson – Redshirt Freshman – Alabama

LB Omar Speights - Senior - Oregon State

DE Ovie Oghoufo - Senior - Texas

EDGE Bradyn Swinson – Junior – Oregon

DL Paris Shand – Junior – Arizona

DT Jalen Lee – Junior – Florida

DT Jordan Jefferson – Senior – West Virginia

Aaron Anderson, the singular player this program has brought in on offense, provides the Tigers with a player who can add a different dimension to this squad. With the departure of Kayshon Boutte and Jaray Jenkins, this receiving corps needed a boost. Insert Anderson. Along with his contributions on offense, Anderson will be a huge piece to special teams. A gifted return specialist, the New Orleans native looks to fill that role almost instantly.
