Two LSU Players Officially Enter the Transfer Portal

The transfer portal is open for business, and players are entering it rapidly.

Antoine Sampah and Phillip Webb were the first LSU players to officially enter the transfer portal, though both announced their decisions to leave in August before the season and were not listed on the roster this fall.

Sampah, a 6-foot-2, 215-pound linebacker from Woodbridge, Virginia, played in six games during his Tiger career, totaling zero tackles. Webb, a 6-foot-4, 255-pound linebacker from Buford, Georgia, played in three games in 2021 and totaled one tackle.

These are the first two names to hit the portal from the bayou, but there could (and likely will) be more. LSU received great news on Monday when Kayshon Boutte said he would come back next season. That will be a big boost for the receiving core next year.

The Tigers experienced a mass exodus through the portal last season. Hopefully, that will be different this off-season. The portal gets bigger daily; for up-to-date news on the transfer portal daily, keep your eyes on LSU Wire.
