Gus Stark / LSU Athletics
LSU coach Ed Orgeron spoke to the media on Tuesday after spring practice and confirmed that former tight end Arik Gilbert did in fact visit LSU recently and that the two had "a good meeting," but that Gilbert has not made a decision yet.


Gilbert, a former five-star tight end from Marietta, Georgia, signed with LSU in 2020 and played as a true freshman with the Tigers last season. He started in the first eight games, catching 35 receptions for 368 yards and two touchdowns but opted out of the season after the loss to Alabama and entered the transfer portal on Jan. 5.

He recently committed and de-committed from Florida.

Not sure why LSU is bothering to spend a minute on this idiot.

The story of home sickness has been refuted. The move away was due to his lack of commitment in the classroom. It’s either get his grades right at LSU or going to JUCO at this point. That’s if he truly wants to play power 5 football this coming season.

Fine if he comes back. Fine if he decides to go somewhere else. It’s his decision and life, which I know nothing about. We won two tough games without him, but it is obvious he has talent than can help. Wish him the best either way

Think about how hard pandemic has been on us, college age kids really have had it tough. Just cause they 6’5 230 they still only 18 years old. Heck all 3 of my kids came home a lot during their 1st semesters( and then about 4 times next 3 years. I think kid got homesick

We didn't have a pandemic. Its a hoax. Check the overall 2020 deaths with any other year and you'll see it was a political joke. All excuses aside, this kid is immature.

He’s still a kid.. he doesn’t know what he wants or, what to do. Kids today are to caught up in the instant gratification, social media, and that they are the best thing since sliced bread. He got around other talented people, and was no longer the best man on campus. I’ll give him the benefit of the doubt, but I think he got she’ll shocked just being another great player on a team of great players.

I don't understand what he's waiting for, LSU is the best possible place for him. He should never have left, but I just don't get what he's searching for and I think he doesn't either.
