Another LSU Tiger in search of playing time has entered the NCAA Transfer Portal. Reserve offensive tackle Marcus Dumervil spent three seasons in Baton Rouge and leaves with two years of eligibility after burning his redshirt in the SEC Championhip Game.
Dumervil is the 11th LSU player to hit the portal and the second offensive lineman, joining veteran Cam Wire. There was always expected to be some attrition with the offensive line this offseason and there very well could be more on the way. LSU is prepared, mainly because of the incoming freshmen talent that the Tigers are welcoming to the program.
A 6-foot-5, 306-pounder out of St. Thomas Aquinas High School in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, Dumervil inked with the Tigers in the 2020 class over all the in-state schools and more than 30 other FBS programs. The 247Sports Composite ranked him as the No. 11 offensive tackle in America, and 247Sports tabbed him three spots lower at No. 14.
The first transfer window for players to enter the portal runs from December 5-January 18. Players do not have to choose a destination within that window. They only have to officially enter the portal. The second transfer window runs from May 1.
Below is an updated look at the LSU offensive line room for next season and beyond, knowing more attrition could come.
