For the second and third time in less than a month, and at a position grouping that’s as deep and talented as any in the country, LSU has lost members of its secondary to transfer.
According to the Baton Rouge Advocate, sophomore Sam Gibson and redshirt freshman David Jenkins have decided to leave the Tigers football program. While a school official confirmed the departures, there’s no word on where the pair of defensive backs may ultimately land.
Gibson, a three-star member of LSU’s 2010 recruiting class out of Prattville, Ala., played in five games last season.
As a four-star recruit in LSU’s 2011 class, Jenkins was rated as the No. 21 cornerback in the country coming out of high school in Carrollton, Tex. He redshirted as a true freshman last season.
Late last month, it was reported that CB Ronnie Vinson, a four-star member of the same class as Gibson, had decided to transfer from LSU to Southeastern Louisiana. He ultimately wound up at Tennessee State after an abrupt change of heart.
