Exclusive: LSU Adds a Defensive Lineman Transfer Portal

Missouri defensive lineman Mekhi Wingo has transferred to LSU, he announced on Tuesday.

At 6-foot-1 and 275-pounds, Wingo had 27 total tackles and a sack this past season as a freshman at Missouri.

He is the 11th player to transfer to LSU since Brian Kelly’s hiring and the first defensive lineman from the portal to join the Tigers. Wingo was a three-star recruit coming out of De Smet high school in Missouri, the same high school where LSU cornerbacks coach Robert Steeples was the head coach from 2016-19.

He joins an LSU defensive line corps that’s lost a few key contributors from last season. Graduate student Andre Anthony is not expected to return after suffering a season-ending injury against Central Michigan this past season and Neil Farrell Jr. has declared the NFL Draft.
