LSU sophomore quarterback TJ Finley is entering his name into the NCAA transfer portal, according to multiple sources.
Finley, a former four-star prospect from Ponchatoula, Louisiana, was a signee in LSU's 2020 class.
Finley started in five games as a true freshman last season after starting quarterback Myles Brennan suffered a season-ending injury in Week 3. Finley went 2-3 in those games with wins against South Carolina and Arkansas and losses to Auburn, No. 5 Texas A&M, and No. 1 Alabama.
Fellow freshman quarterback Max Johnson replaced Finley as the starter for LSU's final two games of the season which were wins vs. No. 6 Florida and Ole Miss. Johnson took first-team snaps during spring practice and started as QB1 in the spring game back in April.
Johnson, along with Brennan will battle it out in fall camp to be the starter Week 1 vs. UCLA.
