Former LSU tight end Arik Gilbert announced Sunday that he has de-committed from Florida and has re-entered the NCAA Transfer Portal.

Gilbert, a former 5-star recruit from Marrieta, Ga., opted out of the season the week after LSU's loss to Alabama and entered the transfer portal on Jan. 5. He started in the first eight games for the Tigers, catching 35 receptions for 368 yards and two touchdowns.

We're much better off with Cole Taylor...he had sense enough to lose his shoe and get us a chance at a winning field goal...Gilbert could never have pulled that off.

Head Case and maybe a classroom case...the players at LSU and the University of Florida, unlike Alabama are required to be able to read and write.

Some of the LSU players have shown their support on twitter and seem to want him back! That's good enough for me. Lord knows I made immature decisions at that age (more than I care to remember/regret)! Wipe the past clean and start fresh! Toughen up mentally and finish strong as a TIGER. If he implodes, the team is bigger than one player, and has already shown it can thrive without him! But if he comes in, keeps it together, is a good teammate and produces as a net positive, LSU fans/team should and will quickly forgive and embrace him! He deserves a second chance just like anybody else to achieve his potential, and help the team achieve a higher potential! This would go a long way to show that the admin and coaches care more about the person than the player! GEAUX TIGERS!

Ok all you maroons... If the kid needs to grow up and face things or he---God forbid---does have mental illness, don't you think it would be best for him to be in a situation where he is cared about and has a strong support group? Like IN school ON the football team? Where he doesn't have time to ruminate on negatives and actually be helped? LSU shows it cares about the kids which is a positive for the Univ in recruiting and in general, helps a young man with problems, and oh, by the way, gets an All American football player. Maybe it's some of you mensas that ought to look in the mirror and grow up.

Damn shame. Dude has a legit chance to make millions for hitting people and playing with a ball but can’t get out of his own way.

Serious maturity issues. Hope coaches consider this before looking at just his athletic ability. He's got red flags everywhere.
