LSU linebacker Bugg Strong enters the transfer portal

·1 min read

More bad news for the LSU Tigers, according to reports linebacker Navonteque “Bugg” Strong has entered the transfer portal.

This season Strong has played in five games with 17 total tackles, 1.5 TFLs, and one sack. He has been lost in the shuffle at linebacker along with Mike Jones Jr due to the outstanding play of Damone Clark and Micah Baskerville.

Strong joined the team as the No. 1 JUCO linebacker in the 2021 recruiting class. The Mississippi product will now look to leave the program after less than one full season with the Tigers. Given how the season has gone and with Ed Orgeron on his way out, he likely won’t be the last. Billy Embody of Geaux247 was first to report the news.

The news of Orgeron’s departure has already seen a ripple effect of sorts. Aaron Anderson of Edna Karr already decommitted and Koy Moore entered the portal as well.
